Description

The Steiner 8x30 Predator Pro Binoculars are the latest addition to Steiner's popular Predator Pro Line. These binoculars incorporate Steiner's latest "C5" optics developed by their 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.

        This is my 2nd purchase of Steiner binoculars and by far pound for pound these are the best beautiful that are crystal clear even in low light. Like all Steiner binoculars the craftsmanship is very high end and thorough. I especially like the fact they open to those of us with a wider spacing between the eyes. I like that the description & reviews were honest and right on point.

            I want to thank the past reviewers for their honest assessment of these Steiner 8x30 Predator Professional Binoculars -you are all correct !! These Steiner's are pound for pound the best I have ever owned at any price. I am not an expert on binoculars, but I did research for approx. 3 months before I finally purchased these - I made the right choice !! The optics are great in a multitude of light settings, the Sports Focus is right on, the weight is ideal and they are extremely well made. One thing I really like is the fact they open very wide for us wide spaced eyed people. Binoculars.com provided exemplary description of product, customer & support services & careful delivery. I hope this review helps someone like the past reviews helped me.

              This was my first Steiner purchase. I was looking for quality binoculars that would have crisper images than the average pair most hunters on a budget carry with them in the field. I was delighted with the mid size and weight of these optics and find that convenient. Crystal clear viewing without the need to focus! My only minor complaint would be with the supplied neckstrap. A wider or higher quality strap would have been a nice touch to include in the box. Also, the rain cover seemed to be a one-size-fits-all cap. All in all I would recommend them. In fact, I plan to purchase Steiner's "Predator Extreme 8x22" to carry in my pocket, believing I will receive the same quality with these bino's as my 8x30's. Binoculars.com was easy to buy from and the package arrived as scheduled.
