Olympus 108798 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for fast and easy observations of mid- to long-distance subjects, the Olympus 8x42 Magellan EXWP I Binocular sports a magnification and objective lens size favored by birders, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts who are constantly on the move.

The Magellan is made with phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms and fully multi-coated optics to produce color-accurate high-contrast views without distortion or color fringing, so your distant subjects look crisp and clear with excellent resolution. With avid users in mind, Olympus treated the objective lenses with ultraviolet (UV)-blocking coatings to prevent this harmful radiation from damaging your eyes.

Designed for daily outdoor use in all weather and to make it easy to hold, the Magellan features a slip-resistant armoring to provide a sure and positive grip. A standard 1/4"-20 socket allows it to be mounted on most quick-release plate, heads, photo/video/field tripods, and other support systems, using an optional adapter, for hands-free use. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging if the weather turns or the Magellan takes an accidental spill in a stream or puddle.

Optical Performance
  • 8x power magnifies view without sacrificing field of view or exit pupil
  • 42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability versus smaller objectives while helping to maintain a compact form factor
  • Compact roof prism light path ensures a slim profile without sacrificing performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal interference to improve resolution and contrast
  • Fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color and improved resolution
  • Ultraviolet (UV) blocking lens coatings prevent harmful radiation from damaging eyes—especially for those who frequently use the binocular
  • 7-element/5-group lens design
  • 331' field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration provides a solid platform for the focusing mechanism
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • ±2 dioptric correction allows for precise focusing even for those who normally require corrective eyewear
  • Twist-up eyecups enable precise eye relief settings, even for those who use them while wearing glasses
  • 60-70mm interpupillary adjustment range
  • Long 18mm eye relief increases comfort and reduces eyestrain for easier viewing, especially during long glassing sessions
  • Wide 5.25mm exit pupil will cover pupils as they open and dilate in low light to keep the entire scene in view at all times
