These Steiner Wildlife XP binoculars are ideal for hunters, wildlife observers or even birders who frequent wide open spaces like that which you find along the coast, in open fields or out on the hills where observational distances are generally a little greater.
The open hinge body is not only comfortable but produces a very secure space to hold onto the instrument. This design helps when traversing rough terrain and steep gradients whilst carrying the binocular in one hand and using the other for support.
Measuring 112 m wide at a distance of 1000 meters away, the field of view is impressive for a 10x binocular, which will certainly be of benefit to anyone needing to scan wide open areas or quickly locate and then follow fast moving birds or wildlife.
The larger than “standard” 44 mm lenses are not only able to collect more light but they also produce a bigger exit-pupil than the more common 10x42 combination. If you factor this in conjunction with the high-quality glass and super reflective coatings, then you have a binocular that can deliver extremely bright, high-quality views during the day and will outperform a 10x42 in low light situations.
These Steiner binoculars also have a very good minimum focus distance of only 2 meters and thus as well as long distance, they are also a good option for those who like to study things like butterflies or flowers from close range.
