"The EL was the best binocular in the world. It's still one of the best, but not the best anymore." - Swarovski Optik Executive

The NL Pure from Swarovski Optik is not a replacement for the EL. What it is, however, is spectacular. With the three most popular magnifications on the market represented in a reimagined 42 mm format (including a 12x42), the NL is the most comfortable hand-holding binocular we've ever seen.

Strap the NL Pure to a tripod and take full advantage of Swarovski's iconic glass, Swarovision coating system, and a massive 71˚ field of view (even at 12x), and refuse to let anything on the mountain escape. The EL still has its place, but the NL Pure has literally created a brand-new category for binocular performance.

You can't kill a legend, but you can ask it to scoot over.

These binoculars are as good as it gets. Light, crystal clear, fabulous field of view & very manageable.

Swarovski NL Pure vs. EL

The only problem with NL Pure is the removable lens covers. Swarovski redesigned the lens covers, because EL lens covers fall off too often, designed with expandable rings like flat rubber bands that stretch around the objective barrel. The NL Pure removable lens covers feature a clever design, lens cover attaches to the barrel with a tiny plastic hinge. Unfortunately, the little hinge is delicate and broke after seven weeks. Swarovski has excellent service and mailed me replacement lens covers at no cost. However, the flimsy little hinge will probably break again.

Best Binoculars I have ever owned

They are built to be used for long periods of time. The ergonomics are very nice, not to mention the clarity and field of view are unmatched. I purchased the 12x42 Pure binoculars and included the forehead rest and stud for tripod mounted glassing. I have wanted the 12x for a long time and I am glad I waited. These binoculars provide incredible light gathering capabilities along with a great magnification. Not too much to make it shaky and uncomfortable and not too little to strain for a clear picture at distance. I would recommend this to anyone looking for high quality optics.
