The Levenhuk 8x42 Vegas Binocular is used for birdwatching, hunting, and most other outdoor and sports activities. It features BAK4 roof prisms and 8-layer anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, which work together to maximize light transmission through the optical path and ensure bright and clear, high-contrast images with accurate colors. The combination of magnification, long eye relief, and a field of view that approaches wide-angle produces an immersive observational experience that will capture and keep your attention during long glassing sessions. The moderate 8x magnification combined with with large objectives translates to a wide exit pupil, to make it easier to maintain full and bright views in low-light, without vignetting. For those who want to make detailed observations of small subjects like hummingbirds, butterflies, insects, and fauna & flora, the Vegas boasts a short close focus distance of just under four feet.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight impact-resistant plastic chassis, that is also temperature-resistant to limit the expansion and contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optical components from moving out of alignment over time. The chassis is wrapped in a slip-resistant rubber armor with textured palm-pads to add grip security and stability in cold and wet weather or while wearing gloves. Its optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Finally, a wide interpupillary adjustment range, a ribbed and textured center focusing wheel, a broad −4/+8 dioptric correction range, and twist-up eyecups enable precise focusing and eye relief for just about any user — regardless of most individual eye prescriptions.

Optical Performance
  • Moderate 8x magnification maintains a generous field of view and minimizes the appearance of visible hand-shake
  • Larger 42mm objective lenses draw in more light than smaller models for better viewing in low-light conditions
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • 8-layer anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity and improve contrast and image brightness
  • Short 4-foot close focus distance enables detailed observation of small subjects such as birds, bugs, and insects, as well as plants and flowers
  • 59° apparent angle of view approaches wide angle
  • 387-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration
  • Large textured and slip-resistant focus wheel enables easy use even in cold or wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • Wide 50-73mm interpupillary distance adjustment range allows people with small or narrow faces to properly see, even children or young adults
  • Broad −4/+8 right-eye dioptric correction range for precise focus adjustment to most user's individual prescription
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Long 18mm eye relief improves viewing comfort without eye fatigue or strain
  • Wide 5.25mm exit pupil will cover most pupils when they dilate in low-light conditions for clearer views without vignetting
Construction Details

  • Chassis is temperature resistant to maintain a comfortable temperature in all weather, while resisting expansion and contraction common in metal chassis - that can cause the optics to move out of alignment over time, preventing the ability to achieve sharp focus
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes
  • Rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Raised palm-pads improve grip security
  • Weight: 35 ounces
