Description

The Steiner 12x40 Predator Pro Binoculars are the latest addition to Steiner's popular Predator Pro Line. These binoculars incorporate Steiner's latest "C5" optics developed by its engineers in Germany. This new C5 technology is designed to deliver brighter images with high contrast. This performance makes them highly effective in a difficult hunting environment where game animals are in heavily wooded areas.

 

These new Predator Pro binoculars feature Steiner's unique "Sports Auto-Focus" system, which allows you to make one-time focus adjustments to the eyepieces. A high-depth field of view allows you to view objects in sharp focus from near distance to infinity. These binoculars also come with contoured, wrap-around eyecups which block side light and improve your viewing experience.

 

New NBR Long-Life Armoring and updated trim for protection will extend the life of these binoculars even when used in the most demanding conditions.



Predator Optics

 

The revolutionary Steiner Predator lens coating increases contrast in wooded and camouflaged backgrounds, and it makes animals much easier to detect with the human eye. Simply put, the green coating blocks out green and blue (the colors of foliage and haze) and boosts browns and reds. The added contrast is impressive.


About Steiner
From its humble, post-WWII beginnings, Steiner has become one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality optics. Optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947, offering products from small cameras to binoculars and special lenses. As the company grew, it increasingly focused its production on professional high-quality binoculars. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, the first binoculars ever with an integrated compass, the first binocular with special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.


Today, Karl Steiner's son Carl continues to strengthen and develop the company's position as a world leader in binocular production, utilizing the highest level of technology and setting high standards for future products with all binocular manufacturers. Steiner is located in Moorestown, N.J.

        Bought these binoculars for observing deer on my property and they work great during the early morning and late evening. They have extended my viewing hours longer than you can see with the naked eye. During the daylight hours the view is crystal clear. I would reccomend them to anyone.

                  Rugged enough not to have to baby, surprised when compared to my Zeiss at the clarity of these for the price, Enjoy the features of the lens caps, and brings out the colors of hidden animals. Happy I bought these for constant use on the ranch.

                  Purchased for hunting, got larger binoculars so I'd have greater light in early am or evening hunt situations, but tradeoff is these are medium size and larger than most hunting glass. Still, like the product a lot.
