The Olympus 8-16x40 Explorer S Zoom Binoculars feature a powerful zoom capability that offers an immersive viewing experience. You can scan the terrain for objects of interest on low power and dial up the magnification to make detailed observations and identification at long ranges.

Their traditional Porro prisms present you with a rich depth of field that allow you to more easily discern the distances between objects in your view for a real "3D" experience. Anti-reflection coated optics maximize the light entering the objectives to produce bright and clear images with accurate colors and crisp resolution. A knurled center focus wheel and an elastic polymer armored grip assist handling and give you precise control of the optic, while fold-down eyecups provide comfortable use with or without eyewear.

Optical Performance

  • Powerful magnification range from 8x to 16x is ideal for nearly all glassing needs
  • 40mm objective lenses boost low-light capability without adding excessive weight and heft
  • Traditional Porro prism optical path produces a rich depth of field with true stereoscopic vision for a more "3D" viewing experience
  • 6-element/4-group lens design helps to reduce fringing and distortion, making views appear sharp and flat with little edge curvature through zoom range
  • Anti-reflection coated optics improve light transmission, contrast, and color rendition
  • 262-foot field of view at 1000 yards on 8x, 178 feet on 16x
