Swarovski 58132 overview

  • 1Description

With phase-corrected roof prisms and enhanced optical coatings, Swarovski's tan 8x30 CL Companion Binocular delivers high-contrast images with accurate true-to-life color and virtually zero distortion across the entire field of view. Its relatively low 8x magnification produces a wide 372' field of view that, coupled with the optical performance, produces an immersive visual experience with greatly reduced visible hand-shake versus higher-power optics. Styled and engineered with an ergonomic profile, a non-slip focusing wheel, and individually adjustable twist-in eyecups, they offer a comfortable viewing experience for long observation sessions. This version of the Companion includes a standard field bag, shoulder strap and wrist strap in addition to two objective lens covers and an eyepiece rainguard.

Swarovski's SWAROBRIGHT phase-correcting coatings applied to their premium roof prisms eliminate color fringing and aberrations for enhanced color fidelity and contrast, while their SWAROTOP coating on the other optical surfaces enhance light transmission and viewing accuracy. The outer lens surfaces are further coated with Swarovski's SWARODUR which improves scratch-resistance and allows oils, saps, and water to bead off which not only helps to keep the surfaces clear, it makes cleaning them easier.

The CL Companion utilizes a compact and thin bridge construction with thumb depressions on the underside of the binoculars for steady, balanced viewing comfort. This trim form-factor is relatively light and small enough to pack and travel with ease. Its tan non-slip full rubber armoring provides shock resistance, the the optical tubes are nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging and makes them submersible to 13 feet.

    Swarovski 58132 reviews

    8x30 CL Companion Binocular (Tan) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Addition to The Swarovski Line Have used this a couple of time for birdwatching and am very pleased. I already own the 7x42 and 10x50 SLCs and always wanted a compact Swarovski. My wife has the 8x32 SLC but I have always hated the front focus knob and the eye relief was not enough since I wear glasses. The Cls seem to have just enough extra eyerelief to make them comfortable and the clarity is quite nice. I have read other reviews that the focus falls off near the edge. The pair I have also do this but it is minimal. The ergonomics are great and I have large hands. Overall I am very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swarovski CL Companion 8x30 Binocular I bought these because of the compact size and the quality of the images, primarily for birding. I was using a twenty five year old pair of 7x50 marine binoculars, and Swarovski 8x30 are so superior, especially in terms of ease of focus, sharpness of images, and better image in low light, there is no comparison. They were expensive, but they were worth it. And the size and weight is exactly what I was looking for.
