For a solid choice among birding binoculars that gives you great specs and stellar performance, look no further than the Opticron 8x42 Explorer WA ED-R. With its extra-low dispersion glass lenses, anti-reflective fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected BAK4 prisms enhanced with proprietary coatings, this model amps up light transmission while obliterating chromatic and spherical aberration. The result: brilliant, sharp images with extraordinary contrast and true-to-life color representation. This wide-angle binocular's chassis combines aluminum alloy and polycarbonate for a lightweight feel that doesn't skimp on durability. Slip-resistant rubber armoring protects against damage from drops and other impacts. And the barrels are O-ring sealed and nitrogen-filled to be waterproof, fog-proof, and ready to use in all climate conditions.
