The Swarovski EL binoculars combine maximum functionality, innovation and design. The unique wrap-around grip enables comfortable operation even with one hand. Low weight and excellent balance make light work of long observation periods. The sophisticated top-class optical system delivers high-contrast, lifelike image quality. The revolutionary SWAROVISION TECHNOLOGY from SWAROVSKI OPTIK enables an image quality in the new EL 42 previously unequaled in binoculars. The combination of field flattener lenses and HD optic ensures impressive image resolution over the entire field of view. Thus providing outstanding contrast even when observing at dusk. Eyeglass-wearers also benefit from the full wide-angle field of view due to the large eye relief distance.

The image focus of the new EL 42 has never before been achieved in any binoculars. The field flattener lenses used produce a virtually flat image. As a result, even the finest structures and smallest details are reproduced with razor-sharp clarity right up to the image edge. For the first time ever, the observer obtains a perfect image with no annoying distortions. The outstanding image quality over the entire field of view means less refocusing and allows you to identify every detail at lightning speed. The observers peripheral vision will be able to see small movements and identify colors and patterns at the edges of the image with greater ease.

The fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize color-fringing (chromatic aberration) for contrast-rich images with razor-sharp outlines. As a result, significant improvements in resolution and contrast are achieved by comparison with conventional grades of glass. Experience completely new insights into natures world of shapes and colors.

The new EL 42 stands out by comparison with other binoculars due to a larger eye relief of the exit pupil. This enables even eyeglass wearers to survey the entire wide-angle field of view and enjoy the new ELs unique edge sharpness. The removable twist-in eyecups are individually adjustable in three stages. In addition to the maximum position (completely twisted out) and the setting for eyeglass-wearers (completely twisted in), the eyecups also have a snap-in intermediate stage.

EL 8.5 x 42

I ordered the EL’s since they were not in stock at the moment. They came in earlier than expected. I went to the store, met with a very helpful and friendly staff member who delivered the binoculars.

Once I put the glass to my eye I saw in immediate difference from my older version of the 10x50 SLC’s.

I’m an eye glass wearer. The eye relief was long so I didn’t have to crush my glasses to the optics to get a full field of view.

The view was crisp, clear from edge to edge and the field flattening Appeared to have a greater depth of field than my older SLC’s.

I use the glass for birding and hunting. Placing them on the tripod is the best way to use the glass. It’s so easy to see movement due to the clarity and solid mounting.

I would recommend the glass to anybody that wants a premium quality glass.

PS. The stud was installed perfectly and the polished metal was a nice addition. My older pair had a black finish.
