Vanguard Endeavor ED 8x42 Overview

The 8x42 Endeavor ED Binoculars from Vanguard offer an ergonomic, open-bridge design with a large, ridged, central focusing knob for less weight and greater comfort. The fully multi-coated extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lenses reduce color dispersion, provide high-resolution color, and increase light transmission, contrast, and clarity. Vanguard's V-Max Silver, Anti-reflection, and P2 Phase coatings provide near-perfect light reflection, which offers brighter, crisper images with sharper contrast.

The 56° angle of view, BAK4 roof prisms, and plethora of lens coatings make these binoculars the choice for someone who values low weight and high optical quality. Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, the Endeavor ED is fogproof and waterproof to take on challenging weather conditions.

As an 8x42, these Endeavor ED binoculars provide a reasonable degree of magnification in a relatively compact device. The viewing angle is comfortably wide enough for distant scanning of shorebirds and unapproachable wildlife, and a very generous eye relief of 19.0 mm allows users a view of the binoculars' entire field.

ED glass lenses render the full spectrum of color
Ergonomic, open-bridge design for a comfortable and attractive form factor
BAK4 roof prisms with P2 Phase coatings provide high-contrast, high-clarity viewing
Twist-up eyecups and a singular ocular dioptic corrector simplify sharing of the unit
56° angle of view (AAoV) allows more landscape to be contemplated with one appraisal
V-Max Silver, P2 Phase, and Anti-Reflection coatings ensure excellent contrast, brightness, and clarity
Fully multi-coated optics mean multiple layers on all air-to-glass surfaces for a brighter, higher contrast image with less eyestrain

Disappointed in this product

This model has pronounced spherical aberration, meaning the center of the visual field is sharp but a noticeable portion of the edges of image are out of focus.

Great value

My first pair of good binoculars. Excellent clarity and bright field of view. Was looking at the Endeavor II but could not pass up the lower price of the original Endeavor. Very happy so far.

Binoculars work well with glasses

These binoculars work well with my glasses. I've had them about three weeks. Fit and finish are good. So far the 8 magnification has been a good choice for watching birds in a suburban neighborhood. I would recommend these to a friend.

Amazing! Love them! ??? ?

After reading many reviews, both here and on the Internet, I decided on this model. Glad I did. I wear glasses 100% of the time, but with these Vanguards, I can quickly move from wearing my glasses to going without them. Difference in view is virtually indistinguishable from each other. Best focusing I have found - and extremely fast. Locking diopter is a great option. Extremely happy with this purchase. And B&H got them to me very fast.

Perfect for me

I'm very happy with my purchase. These have been a great pair of entry-level binoculars to start doing some birding with. Really enjoying them.
