Effortless recognition of the smallest details
Thanks to the large field of view of 133 m and the brilliant optics with field flattener lenses, which ensure sharp images, the EL 8.5x42 accompanies you in various hunting situations. Especially the 4.95 mm wide exit pupils make this convincing all-rounder a real alternative for a night hunting glass. Despite poor lighting conditions, the EL 8.5x42 is in no way inferior to a much larger 8x56. The picture may appear somewhat darker in direct comparison. But due to the extremely sharp, brilliant optics, a very high contrast and a well-balanced design you can see just as much in the worst light. The EL 8.5x42 shows its true advantage when a little more light is available (in the twilight): the unique brilliance of the images astonishes even long-time hunters. The images are bright and rich in contrast, but above all brilliant and pin sharp to the outermost edge.
Compared to a classic 8x56, the EL 8.5x42 is much smaller and lighter, making the EL 8.5x42 the ideal choice for hunting and stalking, but also for night hunting. A real all-rounder!
In addition, the EL 8.5x42, like the other EL binoculars with field flattener lenses, provides first-class brilliant optics. Sharp images without distortion, strong contrasts, maximum colour fidelity, even the smallest details can be easily seen at 8.5x magnification. Thanks to the Swaroclean coating, the lenses can be easily cleaned of even stubborn dirt such as tree resin. The EL 8.5x42 is ideal for spectacle wearers due to a higher eye relief of the exit pupils.

- Diopter adjustment is lockable
- EL Grip through for safe handling
- Rubber armouring made of allergy-free plastic
- improved mechanics for direct focusing of the optics

Care instructions for the glasses:
If you are at home, unscrew the eyepieces and keep the glass under running water. The water jet should not be too strong. Rinse off the coarse dirt from the lenses. Then rub a drop of mild detergent over the lenses to remove grease, streaks and the like. It is best to shake off the remaining drops of water or dab the lenses dry. Do not rub!
Swarovski Optik offers a special cleaning set for binoculars when you are out and about. First remove dust and dirt particles with a brush. Then you can clean the lenses with the cleaning cloths.
