Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 Binoculars (Black)

With its Schott ED glass featuring high-quality coatings for sharp, bright images (even in low-light situations) and fiberglass-reinforced, waterproof casing, these Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 Binoculars fulfill even the highest expectations of those outdoor enthusiasts seeking a better view. The TERRA ED line is designed to be compact, lightweight and sturdy, which means they're prefectly designed to be the ideal companion once you venture outside. Whether you are going to partake in a long journey, the open countryside, at the racetrack or concert, or on city tours, in the mountains or on the open seas, keeping these binoculars handy will become a priority.

Brilliant, Razor-Sharp Images

Thanks to maximum optical precision and a hydrophoic multi-coating, the ZEISS TERRA ED meets all demands for versatile use. This state-of-the-art coating ensures that ZEISS TERRA ED will impress you even under difficult conditions such as adverse weather and challenging outdoor situations. These binoculars guarantee outstanding images, minute details and absolutely natural colors.

Easy-to-Use, Quick Focusing

The large, smooth-running and easy-access focussing wheel of the TERRA ED makes focussing especially easy and fast. Pick up a pair of TERRA ED binoculars and their advantages are instantly apparent. The index finger automatically positions itself on the focus wheel. You no longer have to think about how best to hold the binoculars if an exciting scene appears right in front of you. Quick as a flash, you are focussed on the object of your interest. You can be sure never to miss out on those unforgettable moments. On the contrary, you have a razor-sharp, ringside view of them.

Close-up Field Observation

ZEISS TERRA ED allows you to precisely observe objects close up, e.g. insects, plants or even rocks. With its minimum object distance of just 1.5 m (TERRA ED 32) or 1.9 m (TERRA ED Pocket), the TERRA ED models make it possible. These binoculars also deliver razor-sharp images of far away objects or breathtaking landscapes. As you can see, only outdoor binoculars from ZEISS are this versatile and impressive.

Light, Robust and Modern Design

The ZEISS TERRA ED family stands out with its light weight and high level of robustness. While the TERRA ED 42 is available in Deep Blue, Cool Grey and Black, and Pocket come with a modern design in Gray-black. Easy-grip surfaces ensure perfect ergonomics. The smooth focusing system and the ergonomically correct eye cups guarantee that observations are more comfortable than ever. Weighing in at just 310 grams, the ZEISS TERRA ED Pocket is the lightweight in its class.
