Outstanding set of binos! Yes, they are a bit heavier than the lighter (and costlier) roof prism binos, but these things can take the abuse. I have dropped mine several times onto some pretty hard terrain. Did not hurt them one bit. They remain focused. I am amazed at the high quality Steiner maintains. My first expericence with these was back in the 1980s'. I was in the Army, and we were issued the excellent M22 7x50. One day, a driver reversed over my gear with a Humvee. The steiners were in my pack. My toothpaste, foot powder, and shaving cream were all squashed flat. The Steiners were fine, and showed no damage! wiped the toothpaste and foot powder off, and they were unaffected. I have the 10x50 for work now, and they see duty in marine and desert environments. I've owned this set for 8 years, and I am absolutely happy. I cant enough good about my Steiners.
I have used these binos before. There a bit heavy for long hunts, but are perfect for that shorter hunt, or nature hike. The quality of these surpass any draw back of their weight. I am extremely pleased.
These binocs use a totally different approach to focusing than you are probably used to. You focus it once on a target in the near distnace, then they are in focus for a tremendous depth of field. No more refocusing everytime you look at something diffent. It took me a few minutes to get used to it, but now what a difference it makes when scanning for targets. The image is very bright and clear. Much better than my Oh-My-God expensive spotting scope. Bomb proof construction and waterproof as well. A great value for the price.
My primary use is to observe boats and ships from my apartment in Palm Beach Florida which has views along the intracoastal waterway and out over the ocean. They are ideal for this.
Quick delivery and very good customer service.
This product is the only product I went to for use on the ocean.
The 10x50 is a great bino. Good optics with a decent field of view. A bit heavy to manpack around all day but excellent from a base camp, vehicle or stationary lookout spot. I collect binos and these like all Steiners compare well to other very expensive Euro optics. A good solid performer for anyone who doesn't need a fast center focus like bird watchers do.
Q1: Are these used as night vision glasses and if so are they infared?
A: No. The Steiner 10x50 Military-Marine binoculars do not have night vision capabilities.
Q2: I have noticed on the barrel under the cover there are protruding metal piece that seems to be a contact for a small battery is that correct and if so what type and size is used?
A: The Steiner 10x50 Military-Marine binoculars do not require batteries.
