Enjoy the view and feel the relaxation outdoors with the Olympus 8x42 PRO Binoculars. It produces bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate colors and enhanced clarity, thanks to the Extra-Low Dispersion Objectives with Phase-Corrected Dielectric-Coated Prisms and Fully Multi-Coated Optics with Phase-Corrected Dielectric-Coated Prisms. The 60° apparent angle of view offers a wide field of view to more easily find and track subjects. The optics are Nitrogen Filled, Water and Fogproof plus treated with Oil- and Water-Repellent Lens Coatings. The Short 5' Close focus distance allows detailed viewing of small objects while the Center Fast-Focusing Wheel can be controlled seamlessly in cold or wet conditions or even when wearing gloves.

Product Features in Detail


Easy to Use Design for Birdwatching and Observing Nature
The 8 x 42 PRO and 10 x 42 PRO are not only perfect for searching birds, but offer excellent performance for observing their movements, expressions, and the way they live. These are the ideal binoculars for nurturing your powers of observation, and predicting subject movement. When you are out to photograph birds, these binoculars can help capture the subject you're looking for.

8x/10x magnification for steady vieweing
000097107.jpgThe 8 x 42 PRO offers 8x magnification and the 10 x 42 PRO offers 10x magnification. Both models feature an appropriate size for observation, and a magnification rate not prone to binocular shake. With these, you'll be able to view birds and the movement of other animals confidently and comfortably.

Effective diameter of 42mm, making them easy to use even in dim locations
A large 42 mm effective diameter objective lens is a stand-out feature that makes it possible to view subjects even in dim forests.

Bright, Clear Field of View
Cutting-edge coating technologies such as the dielectric multilayer prism coating and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optibal) Coating included in the full multi-coating on the lenses increase spectral transmittance for a bright, clear field of view.

Full multi-coating
Multi-coating is applied to all lens surfaces that contact the air and the prism light entry surface for significantly improved transmittance.

Dielectric multilayer prism coating
Dielectric multilayer prism coating with a reflectivity of more than 99% is used on the upper surface of the auxiliary prism. This keeps prism light loss to an absolute minimum.

Maximum spectral transmittance of more than 94%
Cutting-edge coating technologies deliver a maximum high transmittance of 94% or more, and flat properties at the wavelength area where human vision is most natural (450 to 650 nm).

High Resolution, High Contrast, and Sharp Imagery
The ED lenses and phase-correction coating result in high resolution, high contrast, and sharp imagery.

ED lenses for reduced chromatic aberration
ED lenses are employed to suppress chromatic aberration, which is the cause of colour bleeding.

Phase-correction coating for reduced roof prism phase deviation
Phase-correction coating corrects the phase deviation in light beams, which is a characteristic property of roof prisms, improving both resolution and contrast.

Excellent Close-up Capability Offers a Wider Range of Subjects to Observe
Closest focus distance of 1.5m
A closest focusing distance of 1.5 meters makes it possible to focus on and observe close subjects such as insects near your feet, and flowers blossoming on trees.

Reliability That Withstands Punishing Environments
Waterproof, anti-fogging construction
The waterproof construction keeps water out even when the binoculars are submerged at a depth of 1 meter for 5 minutes. The body is filled with nitrogen gas which results in an anti-fogging construction which prevents fogging when moving from one extreme temperature to another. This construction makes it possible to use the binoculars without worry, even in environments where sudden changes in weather occur.

Oil-repellent coating
The objective lenses and eyepiece lenses are finished with oil-repellent coating. This feature makes it easy to wipe off water droplets or dirt on the lens surface.

Sophisticated Design and Superb Controls
Refined, simple design
The characteristic sharpness and profile lines of the OM-D interchangeable lens camera are expressed in these binoculars. The slim, simple, exterior design does away with all unnecessary aspects. The design harmonises perfectly with the OM-D series.

Ergonomic controls
The way the binoculars feel in your hands when you hold them and control them was given top priority when designing this model. A rubber exterior is used for a non-slip grip that fits nicely in the hands.

Functionality designed for ease of use
The 8 x 42 PRO features an 18-mm-long eye relief and the 10 x 42 PRO has a 16-mm-long eye relief. Both have an adjustable eyecup for an overall comfortable field of view whether used with or without glasses.

Expandability for increased range of use
The 8 x 42 PRO features an 18-mm-long eye relief and the 10 x 42 PRO has a 16-mm-long eye relief. Both have an adjustable eyecup for an overall comfortable field of view whether used with or without glasses.
