ZEISS 524204-9901-000 overview

  • 1Description

The black 2017 edition of ZEISS Optics' 10x42 Terra ED Binocular features a redesigned ergonomic chassis that makes holding it more comfortable, especially during long glassing sessions. Optically, it retains the exceptional elements that are the hallmarks of the Terra ED, including compact Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms, SCHOTT extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, and proprietary multi-coatings. These complementary technologies and elements work together to produce an immersive observational experience that presents clear and bright views, with accurate color representation and virtually zero distortion across the entire wide field of view. The 60° apparent angle of view also helps to minimize the visible hand shake common in higher-power binoculars.

The comfortable ergonomic chassis is made of a fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate to help reduce weight, without sacrificing strength while adding impact and temperature resistance. Being resistant to temperature changes not only ensures that the housing will remain a constant temperature, even in cold and wet conditions, but will not experience the expansion and contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optical elements to move out of alignment over time and hinder the binocular's ability to achieve sharp focus. The chassis is covered in a black rubber armoring that helps to protect it from drops and impacts and provides a slip-resistant grip.

    ZEISS 524204-9901-000 reviews

    10x42 Terra ED Binocular, 2017 Edition (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the optics but needed repair to allow tripod mounting I bought this binoculars for an upcoming Africa safari trip. This binoculars can be matched to tripod mounting adapters, but there is a screw-in protection cover for the female receptacle. �Unfortunately the screw-in cover is not knurled or designed with a slot that could accept a screw driver or coin. �This is a somewhat minor design defect, but the removal difficulty is apparently not uncommon. I tried the Zeiss suggestion of using a rubber bottle cap device for grabbing it, but that did not work either. �Zeiss customer service was accommodating and accepted the binocular back for repair. �It was returned to me in good condition, but it was good that I did not need it immediately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp optics & super-close focus! I was a rep for a top-rated optics company so I know glass. This is quite a value. The 10x42 roof prism binocular renders crisp, contrasty images at the remarkably near focus of 5.5 ft -- the reason I purchased it. My backyard has fully developed as a haven for birds and butterflies, from all of which I get great enjoyment, now that I do not have to settle for a 20' + nearest focus to see them in great detail. It is a trifle heavy, but I chose the higher magnification to benefit my 77-year-old eyes. BTW, the eye relief is also pretty good so I can use my glasses. I am very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Optics; Great Value ! I have the Leica Duovids, which are my baseline for comparing any other binoculars to when I am on Safari, usually once a year. I purchased the Zeiss and had them on safari with me Jan 2018, together with my Leicas. I have no hesitation in recommending the Zeiss, and for the price, have great clarity, sharpness, and colour. Compared to my Leicas, I honestly love them both, equally, and are Zeiss are the perfect companion on safari as they are fairly compact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING !! I originally ordered the Zeiss Conquest 10X42 and they are simply amazing !! Ended up returning them and purchasing this set the are assembled in China but exactly the same glass as the German Conquest. I love the high contrast glass and the focus is very accurate. Would definitely recommend the opticron objective covers which work perfectly with this pair. Saved about $600.00 by going with this pair. B and H handled the return and purchase with absolutely NO issues !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior optics Great binoculars. Easy to adjust. Superb light gathering and optical quality. Very well built and seem rugged. My only complaint is the weight - they are a little heavy to carry for long periods but the ability to see wild animals, birds, detail all make it worth it when you can see what others can't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love em' Super clear, compact, and light for 10X42's. Would buy them again. I did manage to break the bino buddy attachment loop on one side of the binocular housing. (it's cheap plastic and I tried to He-man in a hook that was clearly too big so that's solidly on me)
    Date published: 2018-08-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfaction on Product & Service Product received as I expected with accuracy.�Thanks. The product quality really outweighed my old binocular in a number of ways.� :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Zeiss product My new Zeiss 10x42 seems perfect. It feels good in the hands and provides a great and clear view. Recommended.
