Taking design inspiration from their OM-D DSLR cameras, the Olympus 8x42 Pro Binocular comes outfitted with a magnification-objective lens configuration favored by discerning amateurs and professionals all over the world.
Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass with phase-correcting and dielectric coatings on the BAK4 prisms, along with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate colors and enhanced clarity without distortion, ghosting, or fringing. The wide apparent angle of view presents an immersive observational experience with the ability to take in large areas without having to move. A short 5' close-focus distance lets you make detailed observations of small subjects like hummingbirds, butterflies, dragonflies, or other insects at short ranges when they are at feeders or flowers.
Designed to stand up to constant use in harsh outdoor conditions, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and fogproof when moving through extreme temperature and environmental variations. Oil- and water-resistant exterior lens coatings cause rain and dew to bead off, while making oil, sap, and other dirt and debris easy to remove without smudges or streaks-ensuring clear views. Olympus includes tethered front and rear lens caps to add an additional layer of protection in the field, with the ability to quickly react to glassing opportunities without fear of losing the caps.
