The 8×42 Endeavor ED Binocular from Vanguard offers an ergonomic, open-bridge design with a large, ridged, central focusing knob for less weight and greater comfort. The fully multi-coated extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lenses reduce color dispersion, provide high-resolution color, and increase light transmission, contrast, and clarity. Vanguard’s V-Max Silver, Anti-reflection, and P2 Phase coatings provide near-perfect light reflection, which offers brighter, crisper images with sharper contrast.
The 56° angle of view, BAK4 roof prisms, and plethora of lens coatings make this binocular the choice for someone who values low weight and high optical quality. Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, the Endeavor ED is fogproof and waterproof to take on challenging weather conditions.
As an 8×42, this Endeavor ED binocular provides a reasonable degree of magnification in a relatively compact device. The viewing angle is comfortably wide enough for distant scanning of shorebirds and unapproachable wildlife, and a very generous eye relief of 19.0 mm allows users a view of the binocular’s entire field.
