The 8.5x magnification may be atypical in birdwatching binoculars, but has proved an extremely popular choice. The extra .5x over a more conventional 8×42 might seem like a trivial difference, but when dealing with optics capable of delivering such high resolution it is a subtle, but noticeable increase without restricting field of view or light gathering significantly.
Swarovski have packed every bit of cutting edge lens technology into this low weight magnesium chassis; fluoride containing HD glass, field flattener lenses, and high tech multi-layer coatings throughout. Class-leading specifications for field of view (7.6 degrees), eye relief (20mm) and minimum focus distance (3.3m) are further assurance that this is the best money can buy. The EL 8.5×42 Field Pro is backed up by Swarovski’s and Cley Spy’s superb and efficient after sales care, making sure that throughout the 10 year warranty period (and beyond) you will not be let down. This is a binocular you can buy with total confidence that it will deliver the best image possible, whatever the weather.
The Field Pro package includes eyepiece cover, objective lens covers and lift carry strap pro.
