This new marine binocular from Steiner features fully multi-coated optics for excellent low light performance with a peak light transimision of over 90%. Black rubber aromoring provides a sure grip even when wet. Long 22mm eyerelief for a full field of view with glasses or sunglasses. Waterproof and shockproof to 20G’s. Features a 10 year limited warranty. Field of view 354 ft @ 1,000 yds.Big on performance and generous on economy, Steiner’s 7×50 Marine binocular is ideal for both boaters and shore-bound users. The binocular is equipped with marine glass that’s built to traditional Steiner navy/military styling, from its sharp and incredibly bright optics to the easy-to-grip exterior. The Sports-Autofocus system, meanwhile, puts everything into focus from 20 yards to infinity once calibrated to the user’s eyes. Most importantly for boaters, however, is the binocular’s waterproof and shockproof housing, which protects the optics should you accidentally drop the binocular into a body of water. Other details include BAK-4 prisms, fully multicoated optical surfaces, an easy-to-grip exterior, outstanding light transmission that peaks over 90 percent, and 20mm of long eye relief. The 7×50 Marine binocular–which comes with a web strap, a rain and spray guard for the eyepieces, and an attached objective lens cap–is backed by a 10-year warranty.

excellent low light performance I have the 7×50 Steiner Ralleye model, which appears to be identical to the Marine version. It is built like a tank and gives you a lot of confidence that it will hold up to abuse. In low light and night conditions this is an excellent performer. If you are using this is an area with a lot ambient light (such as a town) or moonlight, it will really bring a lot of detail out of the shadows and is a better choice by far then night vison equipment costing hundreds more. The 7x magnification is also a nice choice for avoiding lense shake. (I also have a pair of 9×40 Steiners, and that move from 7x-9x power is noticeable.) The 7×50 also allows you to better follow moving targets. The sport auto focus system works very well and the optics are excellent.

Great German optics for the price! The Steiner Marine 7×50 binoculars have met my (admittedly high) expectations. The Sports Auto-Focus is great — even better on my Marine pair than the Predator models that I looked at in Academy Sports. It makes changing from viewing one object to another fast and easy. They are very clear too. With the focus set at the closest range I can read the buttons on my microwave from across my small trailer. Using them out of doors the foliage really pops out (even when overcast). In almost complete darkness they enable one to see things the naked eye cannot. I have used them at night when I could barely see to walk around. The view through the binoculars was hardly affected at all. Once I used them to look from my parent’s back yard, across the (six-lane) interstate, into the parking lot of the local community college at night. I could see the bugs playing around the streetlights!

Superb binoculars – Stunning image quality – Built like a tank Last summer while visiting a friend in Germany I had a chance to try a pair of high-end Steiner binoculars. They completely reset my expectations of how good a binocular can be; the image quality was unbelievable. Unfortunately, they were the Commander series, which are way beyond my budget.
