Snypex improved on the design of their top-tier line to produce this 8x32 Knight D-ED Binocular. They upgraded their eyepiece and objective lens configuration to 5-elements in four groups for both for improved optical quality and overall image brightness. Complementing this improvement is the use of fully multi-coated extra low-dispersion glass, and dielectric-coated phase-correcting BAK4 prisms. These technologies work together to produce bright and clear images with accurate color rendition across the entire field of view without distortion. This iteration is made with a versatile 8x magnification which provides a wider field of view and reduced visible hand-shake versus its higher-power version, while preserving the same short close focus distance.

The Knight's open-bridge design helps to reduce weight without sacrificing strength, and provides a large surface area to hold, even with the compact housing. Rubber armoring gives protection from drops and impacts while helping to provide a non-slip grip. Designed for durability, the lightweight fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for fogproof performance and makes it submersible. Twist-up eyecups provide a custom-fit eye relief for use with or without eye-wear.

    8x32 Knight D-ED Binocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight quality binocular I took the Snypex Knight D-ED on a safari in Africa to observe wildlife, both from a 4x4 and on foot. The image is nice and sharp, focusing is fast and precise, and with the open frame the binocular is easy to hold. The reason I got this model is that at 380 grams / 13.4 oz it's the lightest 8x32 binocular available. On longer walks, the low weight is great! In the 4x4, I also took along the excellent 10x42 Nikon Monarch 7. During the day, the Snypex was just as bright and sharp, only when it got dark was the image of the much heavier (670 gram / 23.6 oz) Nikon brighter. If you're looking for a lightweight 8x32 with good optics, get the Snypex! My only (small) gripe is that the front lens covers are difficult to attach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic binoculars! After doing hours and hours of research, I finally settled on this pair of binoculars for birding and wildlife spotting. I'm very pleased with the decision. The quality of image is absolutely great, and they're very portable.� I haven't tried them in low light yet but they're supposed to be exceptional in this area. There's a good reason why this model was rated the top 2018 mid-size travel and safari binocular by Best Binoculars Review. Also, their customer service is first rate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome binoculars in all respects! (Snypex Knight 8x32 D-ED For 45 years I have been using all kinds of binoculars for sightseeing, astronomy, and even professionally as a law enforcement officer (LEO) conducting surveillance for about seven years on a daily basis. I only buy and use the very best binoculars including eight Swarovski models starting with their Porros. The only type of binoculars missing from my collection was a compact, lightweight binoculars that would deliver a great image, are very sturdy, and economical. A very tall order indeed. My intention was to take it overseas to Third World countries where binoculars are seen as a potential theft target. Losing a $500 binoculars is not as painful as losing $1K or $2K. After many days of searching and comparing I decided for the Snypex Knight 8x32 D-ED. So far my experience with the Snypex has been extremely favorable and has exceeded my expectations. Since I am not an expert I will not go over the different terminology used in examining the optical quality of an instrument. Thanks to the internet you can read many excellent reviews conducted by knowledgeable experts. Suffice it to say, these Snypex binoculars have truly impressed me from the moment I got them out of the box. Compact, strong, super lightweight, smooth and positive controls, and an image rivaling the Swarovskis in clarity, brightness, and true colors. �As if the above is not impressive enough I am here to tell that Sam, the founder/owner of Snypex, is an amazing human being. He TRULY cares about us, the end-users, of his impressive line of products. His goal from the very beginning has been not only to create a world-class, first-rate optical company, but to put a smile on each and every owner of a Snypex product. He wishes all of his customers to be happy and proud owners every time they rely on a Snypex optical instrument. Sam’s attitude speaks volumes. Needless to say, I strongly and without any hesitations highly recommend these binoculars or any other Snypex product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hiking binoculars Very happy with my new purchase. Sufficient for all sorts of spontaneous viewing while hiking. Neck strap needs further cushioning from clothing hoodie in my opinion. It is a thin strap and cuts into my neck a bit with time. But design treeeffort has been made to cushion it, Lens caps are hard to fit securely but I like their permanent flip on/off attachment . Sturdy and very lightweight!
