Steiner Predator AF overview

  • 1Description

Built for hunters who need to move fast without being weighed down, the Steiner Optics 10x42 Predator AF Binocular features a popular magnification and objective combination, their Sports Auto-Focusing System, and their proprietary high-contrast CAT (Color-Adjusted Transmission) lens coatings to help you find and pick out game that are hidden in dense foliage or shade. The Predator utilizes a traditional Porro prism light path that not only yields a richer depth of field versus similar roof prisms, but naturally makes the housing comfortable and balanced in the hand. Its 10x magnification and 42mm objectives strike the delicate balance of power, light-gathering capability, and portability—making this Predator ideal for low-light hunting and stalking without excessive bulk or weight. The optical performance is complemented by an ultra-wide angle of view, which reveals wide swaths of the landscape to help find elusive game faster and make tracking moving targets easier.

The rich view and enhanced contrast from the prism and lens coatings are complemented by Steiner's Sports Auto-Focusing System, which lets you focus each eyepiece just one time, eliminating the need to refocus again regardless of how near or far away the subject is—or if it is moving. The individual focusing system also eliminates the need for a bridge, which would support the conventional center focusing mechanism. Therefore an open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration can be employed that not only reduces the weight of the binocular but provides more surface area to grip, making it more secure and easier to hold.

The chassis is made of a lightweight and impact-resistant Makrolon polycarbonate material that is wrapped in an oil-, petroleum-, and chemical-resistant NBR synthetic rubber armor that offers improved grip security, especially in cold and wet weather. Its optical tubes are O-ring sealed for an IPX4-rating to be weather resistant against rain and snow, so your day isn't over if the weather takes a turn.

Optical Performance
  • High 10x power allows detailed observations of distant subjects
  • 42mm objectives boost low-light capabilities without adding excessive bulk and weight
  • Traditional Porro prism optical path affords a richer depth of field versus similar roof prisms
  • High-contrast CAT (Color-Adjusted Transmission) lens coatings greatly improve contrast and color rendition to more easily pick out game hiding in dense foliage and shade
  • Wide 73° apparent angle of view helps to produce an immersive experience while minimizing the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics
  • 381-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Sports Auto-Focusing System
  • Fold-down rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Long 16.8mm eye relief makes long-duration viewing more comfortable with reduced eyestrain
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils in lower light conditions to make viewing easier

Sports Auto-Focusing System:

  • Individual eyepiece focusing
  • Requires only one initial individual focus adjustment per user
  • Eliminates the need for refocusing for targets at ranges from 10 feet to infinity
  • Enables the tracking of fast targets without the need to refocus
Construction Details
  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge design reduces weight while providing more surface area for a more secure grip
  • Lightweight and impact-resistant Makrolon polycarbonate chassis remains a comfortable temperature regardless of air temperature and resists expansion/contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optics to move out of alignment over time
  • IPX4-rated to be weather resistant against rain and snow
  • Oil-, petroleum-, and chemical-resistant NBR synthetic rubber armor offers improved grip security, especially in cold and wet weather
  • Winged angled eyecups block stray peripheral light from interfering with views while improving contrast and limiting distractions
  • Broad -4 to 158°F (-20 to 70°C) operating temperature range
