EL 42 binoculars combine size, weight, and optical performance to give the perfect product. They are multipurpose and reliable, suitable for use both during the day and at twilight. Nature lovers appreciate the unique close-up setting of 1.5 m and the rapid, precise focusing mechanism.

The large field of view and optics providing edge-to-edge sharpness make the EL 8.5x42 binoculars versatile to use. The 4.9-mm exit pupils also produce bright images in poor light conditions.

  • Combine size, weight, and optical performance to give the perfect product.
  • Unique close-up setting of 1.5 m/4.9 ft and a rapid, precise focusing mechanism.

Included: Field bag pro, eyepiece cover, objective lens cover, lift carrying strap pro.

SIMPLE AND FLEXIBLE. The new rotating strap connector adapts perfectly to any movement and can be quickly and silently fitted to your binoculars, thanks to bayonet catch. The cord fits in seamlessly with the design and does not get twisted.


PRACTICAL AND ADAPTABLE. The new quick catch button is both elegant and functional. With a simple turn, the carrying strap can be secured to your ideal length. This means that you can adjust the strap within seconds to the length that feels most comfortable.


SAFE AND PROTECTED. The new objective lens and eyepiece covers are manufactured from the best materials and blend into the design. This means no more lost covers. They also provide your binoculars with the best protection against external impacts.


ALWAYS RELIABLE. To prevent you from unintentionally changing the diopter adjustment, the new EL binoculars have a practical, integrated lock function.

THE HIG­HEST STAN­DARD. The EL binoculars’ fluoride-containing HD lenses along with the highly innovative optical design ensure that there is less colour fringing and enhanced colour fidelity. Significantly better resolution and a higher contrast are the impressive result of this top optical performance.

SHARPNESS ACROSS THE WHOLE IMAGE. The field flattener lenses enable the EL binoculars to achieve an almost flat image with the picture sharpness second-to-none. This means that the smallest details appear razor-sharp in any part of the image, even at the periphery.

OPTIMIZED COATINGS. Every detail of EL Binoculars makes viewing an extremely pleasant experience.
