Steiner 2311 overview

  • 1Description

When space is tight, but you still want to be prepared, Steiner Optics' 8x22 Miniscope Monocular gives you a versatile optic that easily fits in just about any palm, pocket, or pack owing to its lightweight housing and folded design. To help compensate for the smaller objective, and to enhance its light-gathering capabilities, the optical surfaces are fully multicoated with Steiner's High Contrast Optics coatings. Its Porro prism configuration provides a depth of field that allows users to discern the relative positions of objects, making it easier to judge distances. To make its use even more hassle-free, the Miniscope is equipped with the Sports Auto Focus system that enables users to focus the eyepiece once, and maintain image sharpness from 13 feet to infinity without the need to manipulate a focus wheel.

    Steiner 2311 reviews

    8x22 Miniscope Monocular is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8x22 Miniscope I now own several 'miniaturized' optics of this genre - I enjoy a compact lightweight scope that can be carried easily and unobtrusively. This Steiner 8x22 meets expectations in as far as clarity and field of view....it focuses very easily and stays there....is extremely light and folds flat for storage. My biggest disappointment was in that the product write up describes this monocular as being focus-free past 13'. This is NOT the case - the focus wheel must be constantly manipulated as you view in varying ranges. Buyers should also be aware that the unit must be folded up for use - when flat it presents an upside down image. I had hoped to use it flat , but cannot. All that said - this monocular has good clarity and magnification , and overall is a very good value for the purchase price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the old ones. I never thought that I would write a poor review for a Steiner product. I have one of the older Steiner monocular, the new ones are not the same quality. The clarity of the image is not as good and they are more difficult to bring into focus. I bought two for Christmas presents and returning them to B&H (RMA pending). No problems with B&H. They had the best price, free shipping, and shipped very fast. Great people to do business with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical alternative to the Doctor Monocular Nice little monocular with surprisingly good optics. At one third the cost of the Doctor Monocular it is a good value. I would have given it 5 stars if it focused closer and was waterproof.
