Built tough!


Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine binoculars are a tough, solid compact that offers plenty of magnification, rainproof construction, and maximum versatility. Refined design by years of use in a variety of settings - from mountaintops to deep canyons, aboard and ashore - they're excellent for spotting game or exploring nature's majesty.


High Performance Features:

  • 360-foot field of view at 1,000 yards for easy object location
  • 20mm eye relief to accommodate eyeglass wearers
  • Waterproof and fogproof for superb all-weather capability
  • Durable rubber armor to shrug off bumps and bangs
  • Lightweight at 18 oz. for all-day carrying comfort

Steiner's increased depth of view puts all the action in focus at once, and long eye-relief accommodates eyeglass wearers. The Steiner 8x30mm Military-Marines are fine, go-anywhere, do-anything binoculars.


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.

Very good to excellant value.

By JKCade

from Chcotaw, OK

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

I bought these as a Christmas present for myself in late 2014. I have really liked them so far. I've used them for a little bit of bird-watching, some astronomy, and general sight-seeing. Excellent clarity, and I like the light weight, it makes them easy to hold.

Steiner the bar all other companies shot for!

By Buckslayer1

from Chapel Hill, NC, United States

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

From the durable finish to the "as advertised" auto focus these binoculars are top of the line. If you're looking for a great set of binoculars to use for hunting, fishing, or other activity, look no further. Crystal clear viewing at its finest, and at only 18 ounces you won't even notice them in your pocket or around your neck.

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

These binoculars are fairly lightweight for their size and quality. You can wear them all day using a third party harness and remain comfortable. Several people in our hunting party use these same binoculars. They are great in low light conditions early in the morning and late in the day.

Very good product!

By Ernie66

from Tucson, AZ, United States

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

These are great binoculars for the price. They are bright, sharp, and have great contrast . The small size is surprising until you look through them, then a new wide view opens up that is pleasantly surprising. I was used to large, heavy ones, so the small, light MM3!0's are perfect for hiking the mountains and desert!

Fine optics in medium size

By GEBTx

from West, Texas, United States

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

Purchased Marine 8x30s at West Marine for work and sports viewing. Now I know what I've been missing using lesser glass. The light transmission and field of view really make a difference versus what I had been using. The sports focus is fantastic. Set it and forget it. Everyone who tries them can't believe the clarity. Overall a wonderful product at a reasonable price. Will not be my only pair of Steiners.

Great Product!!

By Carlos

from Central Virginia

Comments about Pioneer Research Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

I purchased this 8x30 bino more than 2 years ago and have used it primarily at the range but also for sight seeing and some nature watching. I was a little worried that the fixed 8-power it offers would limit its utility. This is the clearest binoculars I have ever used. The quality of the optics is outstanding. Makes me want to get a 20-power version for use for long range spotting. What I and my friends finds the most amazing is the Auto Focus feature. It does not matter who uses it and what their vision might. It did not matter if they were near or far sighted. The binos provided clear, crisp focus and instantaneous transition between subjects near and far. This includes focusing on something at 10-yards to a measured 600+ yards without any detectable delay. I highly recommend this optic for most uses. The only "problem" I have ever had a problem is one or both of the attached objective lense caps seem to always find its way onto the objective on its own. So once in a while you will find yourself looking through the optic and not see anything. But other than this, I have no complaints.

      Customer Q & A

      1 - 5 of 7
          1   2      

      Q1: Are these auto focus? If yes, are there any disadvantages as opposed to adjustable binoculars? Are theses binoculars too powerful for viewing sports such as football, baseball, or basketball?

      A: These are not "Auto-Focus" binoculars, but "Individual Focus". You adjust the diopter of each eyepiece to your vision and then they require no further adjustments. They are not too powerful for sporting events. In fact, an 8x binocular is typically the most recommended for stadium sports.

      Q2: Are blue tinted objective lenses used in military service because of the little reflection produced? Do other tints create more visible reflection thus possible being seen by the enemy?

      A: That is correct.

      Q3: Are these binoculars suitable for use with glasses?

      A: Absolutely, the measurement to keep in mind when buying binoculars and wearing glasses is called the eye relief. For comfortable viewing through the binocular while wearing glasses you will need an eye relief measurement of 15mm or greater. These have an eye relief of 20mm.

      Q4: Is a reticle inside? Is the image color-neutral, or is a yellow or greenish tint visible?

      A: These do not have a reticle, the Military R is the Steiner version that does. There is a slight greenish tint with these but it is almost imperceptible to the naked eye.

      Q5: What is the minimum distance that these glasses may be focused?

      A: The close focus works out to be approximately 10ft.
