Revolutionary optical performance, outstanding ergonomic design, and perfect functionality. EL binoculars embody absolute excellence in long-range optics.

EXCEPTIONALLY BRILLIANT Field flattener lenses, HD optics, high-quality coatings, and the perfect eye relief are what make SWAROVISION technology stand out. The benefits it offers include crystal-clear, lifelike images that are razor-sharp right to the periphery and without any interfering color fringing.

I have been using the new EL 8.5 x 42 since February 2017 and find the absolutely fabulous except the strap. The pad at the back of the neck is too bulky and uncomfortable whilst the strings are flimsy and easily twist together - unlike the flat straps on my previous Canon binoculars. It would change tot he flat strap shown elsewhere on this site but it appears to fit the old ELs only

The EL 12x50 binoculars are fantastic. Having used them today whilst trekking along the coast they are so comfortable and intuitive to use. Whilst tracking a buzzard soaring around the cliff face i could easily see all of it's subtle movements, it was as if i could tell what the bird was thinking! Crystal sharp images, v.impressed. These allow you to be very much immersed in the natural environment you happen to be in; a wonderful feeling.
