The Swarovski EL series is the flagship series of this manufacturer's binoculars, guaranteeing high quality workmanship and 90% optical efficiency. Model EL 8,5x42 WB Swarovision is dedicated to hunters and ornithologists. The binoculars offer a wide field of 7.6 ° (133m per 1000m) field of view, and the images obtained are completely sharp even on the edges.
A six-element array of objective lenses combined with a four-element array of spectacle lenses was covered with multilayer anti-glare coatings. Thanks to this, it provides an ideal transmission of light. Anti-glare coatings (SWAROTOP / SWARDOUR lenses and prisms - SWAROBRIGHT) minimize light losses at the interface boundaries up to 0.2%. In addition, the prisms are covered with layers of P, which eliminate reflections and interference of light at their edges. The last layer of optical element coatings are SWAROCLEAN coatings that make dust, dirt and organic impurities such as resin are exceptionally easy to clean.
The EL series is equipped with specialized HD lenses containing fluoride. Thanks to them, a significant improvement in sharpness, contrast and image resolution was achieved. The special design of the lens system ensures flattening of the field of view. Thanks to this, the obtained images are free from the phenomenon of distortion and have an additional improvement in contrast compared to uncorrected systems.
The binoculars are ideal for observation in difficult visibility and transitional time between day and night, faithfully reproducing colors, providing a high level of contrast and excellent detailing of observed objects. EL 8,5x42W B Swarovision also provides a full field of vision for those who wear glasses.
Nitrogen filling offers total waterproofness up to 4 meters. From the mechanical side, the 8,5x42W B Swarovision binoculars have been designed in a way that ensures precision and ease of use. The correction of the diopter has been built into a central focusing knob allowing constant parallelism of the axis.
The binoculars' housing is made of an odorless antiallergic material comfortably located in the hands thanks to the appropriate hollows for the fingers. The 8,5x42W B Swarovision Binoculars provide comfort of observation also due to its low weight and a well-placed center of gravity.
