Steiner Ranger Xtreme 8x32 Details

Made in Germany to a high specification using excellent quality components, optical glass and coatings these rugged, but reasonably compact binoculars are aimed at the mobile hunter wanting a high performance, but easy to carry instrument.

Whilst the Steiner Ranger Xtreme series as a whole is designed with hunting in mind, there is no reason why these binoculars cannot also be used for many other uses as well. This 8x32 model, in particular, has a number of features that make it the perfect instrument in a wide range of scenarios.

Firstly, it has a wide field of view (133 m @ 1000m), which is important for hunting but is something that most general wildlife observes and in particular bird watchers really appreciate as it makes it easier to quickly locate your subject in your view and then in the case of small, fast-moving and erratic subjects, it makes it much easier to follow them at closer ranges. This can be especially important when observing birds or other small wildlife species in a forest for example.

Steiner’s Fast-Close-Focus system also adds to this capability as the easy to reach central focusing wheel requires fewer turns than most and thus helps enable you to lock on and get a pin sharp view as quickly as possible before missing out on anything.

What is more, their wide view in combination with the instruments more compact size also makes this binocular a great option to take along to most outdoor sporting events as they are easy to pack into your daysack and the wide view allows you to observe far more of the on-field action without having to pan about.

Next, these Steiner Ranger Xtreme 8x32 binoculars have an excellent minimum close focus distance of only 1.9 meters. At this extremely close range, it is possible to get excellent views of things like butterflies and flowers. This great close focus capability, as well as their smaller dimensions and lower weight, makes them an ideal companion to keep in your bag the next time you visit your local museum or art gallery.

Where these and indeed most 8x32 binoculars are not ideal is in extremely low light situations. This is because their smaller lenses and resulting reduced exit pupil size means that they are unable to supply your eyes with as much light as binoculars with larger lenses.

Excellent rugged and well balanced binoculars. Works well in adverse weather and gloved operations. By
Steiner binoculars are usually great for gloved operations and the rugged outdoors, these small-mid size 8x32 binoculars are no exception. Lately I have been looking at an upgrade, to see a significant upgrade in field flattening, light transmission, and ease of use and hold; I would have to end up with things like the Swaro SLC HD.

In the past I have used several optics, for an overall balanced of price and features, this Ranger Xtreme 8x32 is one of the top ones I would recommend. This 8x32 has less Chromatic Aberration (CA) and a wider field of view than its 8x42 brother. This 8x32’s CA is also less than the Minox BV/BF or Zeiss Terra ED 10x42 equivalents and extended glassing was relatively comfortable. The rubber armor is great to grip and the front objective covers never gets lost. The Steiner’s Clickloc system is very convenient for removing the strap & front covers when using on tripod to reduce wind shake. Eye relieve works well with glasses, zero issues here. Overall it is a very balanced binocular. For this price I have no other recommendations which are as durable for rough use under adverse weather and yet balanced in multiple aspects
