Developed to give hunters and birders a slightly higher magnification over standard 8x optics while preserving a wide-angle field of view and limiting visible hand-shake common in higher power glasses, Swarovski's green 8.5x42 EL42 Binocular features a high-transmission optical path, legendary Swarovski optical coatings, and a weather-sealed magnesium-alloy housing. Its wide 65° apparent viewing angle and short 4.9 foot minimum focus distance make this optic ideal for close to medium-long range viewing. The ELs employ a suite of SwaroVision coatings and technologies that enhance the user experience including SwaroBright, SwaroTop, SwaroDur, SwaroClean, phase-correcting P-coatings, field-flatterner lenses, and fluoride glass. These technologies work seamlessly to produce bright & clear high-contrast & high-resolution images with true color fidelity and virtually no distortion across the entire field of view. The 8.5x magnification coupled with wide-angle viewing and generous 42mm objectives make this EL ideal for a diverse range of observational situations, from birding and hunting to sightseeing and terrain navigation and enhanced low-light capabilities over small-objective binoculars.
Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight and durable magnesium alloy chassis that can withstand a life in extreme conditions. Its nitrogen-filled optical tubes are water and fogproof to ensure performance in all weather and environments without internal fogging when moving quickly from wide temperature ranges. An ergonomic, wrap-around sand brown rubber armor ensures that the binoculars will remain comfortable in the hand during long glassing sessions, and helps to maintain a sure grip when it's cold and wet. This version of the EL comes with Swarovski's FieldPro package that features their proprietary rotating pin attachment and adjustment system for the strap that improved mobility and comfort over conventional systems. Included with the binocular are the FieldPro bag, carrying strap, tethered objective lens covers, and a soft rubber tethered ocular rainguard.
