Description

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.

          Comments about Steiner 8x30 Military-Marine Binoculars:

          After hunting for 40 plus years, personally I feel that these binoculars are hands down the best for the buck that I have owned. The remarkable clarity allows me to pick out small details at long ranges. I have tried them all and personally I will never own any other Binocular.

              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.
