ED-X Roof Prism Binoculars
Discontinued October 2014
The ED-X brings the Opticron ethos “smaller, lighter, brighter, sharper” into a new price category with a bold design and new performance standard for around £300.
Designed around a compact optical system to minimise overall length, ED-X series 8x42 and 10x42 binoculars stand just 136mm high making them closer in size to many 8/10x32’s available on the market. The micro-bridge™ assembly, wide wheel focusing and textured rubber armour combine to offer greater flexibility for positional grip with easy access for focus adjustment even under single handed operation. Weighing in at 650g the instruments are light in the hand as well as easy on the neck when carried using a traditional lanyard.
A CN standard ED objective lens system increases light transmission over standard optical glass objectives in this class, while the wide field eyepieces 7.5° (8x42), 6.2° (10x42) offer a panorama-like visual experience helping successful ‘track and trace’ for all types of wildlife observation.
Other features include:
- Fully nitrogen gas waterproof (1m)
- Compact internal focusing optical system with close focus to under 2m
- Multi-stage eyecups (4-stops 8x42, 3-stops 10x42)
- Thumb wheel ‘click-stop’ right dioptre adjuster
- Soft touch textured rubber armour
- 10 year guarantee
