Oberwerk Sport ED Series
With ED glass (extra-low dispersion) objectives and wide 65° AFOV (apparent field of view), the Sport ED are the finest roof-prism binoculars we’ve ever offered. Because of the ED objectives, chromatic aberration, or false color, is completely eliminated from the view. Oberwerk’s signature broadband multi-coatings are found on every air-to-glass surface (fully multi-coated), and the prisms are dielectric coated and and phase-coated for highest-possible light transmission and image quality. Available in either 8×42 (8.1° FOV) or 10×42 (6.5° FOV), they’re the perfect choice for advanced-level bird-watching and wildlife viewing, or for any type of viewing where flawless color rendition is necessary. While more expensive than our Sport HD II Series, they are much less than comparable ED binoculars from competing companies. We feel confident saying that the Sport ED Series provides the most exceptional value of any roof-prism binocular on the market.
A High Quality Roof Prism Binocular
Sport ED’s feature lightweight magnesium-alloy construction, with attractive textured dark green rubber armor and red anodized trim. Yes, the anodized focus wheel and diopter ring are aluminum (most other brands are plastic). Like the Sport HD II Series, the Sport ED’s are completely waterproof and are nitrogen-filled. The internal focusers have the widest range of any Oberwerk binoculars, allowing them to focus as close as 6 ft. away! The eyecups are continuously adjustable for maintaining optimum eye position, or for accomodating glasses- simply twist to move them in or out. Includes right-side ocular diopter adjustment, soft rubber ocular cover, captive soft rubber objective covers, rugged nylon case, and neck strap.
