Short description of Swarovski EL Binoculars

Swarovski Optik offers one of the best binoculars we’ve seen yet. EL series  provides the best optical performance, due to revolutionary optical innovations. Fluoride containing HD lens and fully anti-reflective multi-coatings (Swarobright, Swarotop and Swarodur) on all lenses and prisms gives these high-end binoculars with very bright and colorful images without flare, aberrations and inner reflection. Stunning images with surreal clarity have wide field of view to easily track moving objects and stunning close focus ideal for macro observations. EL binoculars have central focus wheel and diopter for adjusting the focus and soft removable eyecups provides proper eye-relief for glass wearers. The lightweight aluminum body is well balanced and provides a secure grip with the help of open-bridge. When it comes to protection sealed nitrogen gas purging makes them impervious to water and internal fogging and resistant to corrosion. With Swaroclean coatings on external lenses, wiping away the moisture and other solid particles was never easier. 3rd generation of EL series is not only tripod adaptable but also includes snap shot camera adapter and new rotating strap connector adapting to every movement when enjoying the great outdoors.

Amazing binos! By
I bought my dad the Swarovski EL 8.5x42 binoculars for his birthday and he loved them. He takes them with him when he goes hunting and he tells me that they work perfectly. We’ve had them for 2 months and used them multiple times without any problems. The color of the binoculars is very pretty and they are surprisingly lightweight! I don’t think he’ll be buying any new binoculars any time soon. I would recommend these.

Pohvale osebju v trgovini za strokovnost. Za lažjo odločitev sem lahko preizkusil različne daljnoglede. Definitivno je EL 8,5x42 najboljši daljnogled skozi katerega sem kdaj gledal. Kakovost optike je vrhunska, rokovanje z njim pa enostavno. Kolešček za ostrino o katerem je veliko govora da ni najboljši, je po mojem mnenju zelo dober in natančen.
Za zaključek lahko priporočam fizični obisk trgovine, daljnogled pa brez minusov označim z oceno 10/10.

Kudos to the staff at the store for their professionalism. To make the decision easier, I was able to try out different binoculars. The EL 8.5x42 is definitely the best binocular I have ever looked through. The quality of the optics is top-notch and they are easy to handle. The focus wheel, which is known for not being the best, is very good and precise in my opinion.
To conclude, I can recommend paying a visit to the store. I would mark the binoculars with a 10/10 rating without any disadvantages.
