When you absolutely must have the best birding binocular, go for the Swarovski 8.5x42 EL. It's an upgraded version of the original 1999 design that took the bird watching world by storm. You'll love the innovative open-hinge design, which creates an attractively lightweight feel and ergonomic experience. The Swarovision optical system is also amazing, with its field-flattening lenses and fluoride glass elements that make images extremely sharp, brilliant, and beautifully high-contrast. The Swarovski 8.5x42 EL is made using the best materials available, and every binocular shipped out from the company's factory in the Austrian Alps has to pass rigorous quality testing. The final result: an ultra-premium binocular that's been built to last and promises a lifetime of birding enjoyment.
