Our Binocular Line-upEagle Optics Ranger ED 8x42


42mm objective lens
8x - 10x magnification

An 8x42 binocular remains the most versatile all-purpose optical instrument for birding. The larger objective lens will provide the sharpest and brightest image. Full size binoculars will generally be a little larger and heavier.


32 - 36mm objective lens
8x - 9x magnification

8x binoculars work well in a variety of situations. Mid sized binoculars have small objective lens, but will still provide a nice, bright image. They will generally be smaller in size and weigh less than full-size binoculars.


25 - 28mm objective lens
8x - 10x magnification

Advances in technology have upgraded the performance of today's compacts. With increased glass quality and improved optical coatings, newer compacts will deliver a bright, sharp view under normal daytime conditions. Having a compact to carry in your pocket will guarantee you are never caught without binoculars for unexpected nature encounters.
