The Oberwerk Sport HD II Series are available in your choice of 8×32 mm, 8x42mm, and 10x42mm. They are based on the original Sport HD Series, but feature ED objectives, which almost completely eliminate chromatic aberration- yet are priced substantially less than our Sport ED Series. The 8×32 is the smallest and lightest of the group. They are perfect for bird-watching, hunting, nautical usage, and sporting events. Don’t worry about getting them wet- they’re completely waterproof. Because focusing is internal, the eyepieces are mounted directly to the compact ergonomically-shaped body. This eliminates the fragile ocular support arms—the most vulnerable component of center-focus binoculars. The internal focusers also allow them to focus as close as 8 ft. away!
Oberwerk’s signature broadband multi-coatings are found on every air-to-glass surface (fully multi-coated), and the prisms are dielectric coated and phase-coated for highest-possible image quality. The eyecups are continuously adjustable- simply twist to move them in or out.
Rubber-armored metal body, with 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading. Also includes right ocular diopter adjustment, soft rubber ocular cover, captive soft rubber objective covers, rugged nylon case, and neck strap.

I previously owned the non-ED 8×32 Sport HD and they gave solid service on hiking and kayaking trips. I now have the 8×32 Sport HD II model and after using them for a couple of weeks I can say without reservation that I am very satisfied with the upgrade. The Sport HD II model has a more definite focus “snap” than the non-ED model and the focuser itself is smoother to operate. I have several pairs of binoculars to choose from, but the handy size and light weight of the non-ED model made it my most often used bino. I have no doubt that the Sport HD II will continue to fill that role.

We wanted another set of smaller binoculars for Birding and these just fit the bill. Very sharp and color free and my wife doesn’t mind carrying them! They are really first class as is the company and personal service.

I bought the 8×32 Sport HD II as a gift for my wife to use for bird watching and casual astronomy as my Oberwerk 8×42 Sport ED were just a tad heavy for her.
She describes them as clear and bright and was impressed with how the birds colors come through and the view has depth.
We tested them for close focus and this sample can focus at about 6 feet. The night time views are showing excellent CA correction with no noticeable distortions. We tested on the Moon, Mars, M42, M45, the Hyades and various stars.
The build quality is excellent. The hinge and focusers operate smoothly.
