If you are looking for a powerful and portable binocular, stop the search. The Steiner 10 x 32 Merlin Binoculars is the perfect tool for the birder on the move. Their size and magnification make them a great choice for distance viewing in a variety of conditions. At twenty ounces they weigh the same as the 8 x 32 while providing higher power for spooky or distant birds. Waterproof and shockproof the 10 x 32 Merlin can take years of outdoor use.
If you need high performance for faster discovery, especially of birds on the move, take a closer look at the new light weight alloy bodied Steiner Merlin. They are precise, yet amazingly rugged and also fully waterproofed for even the rainiest days.
The optics are made with premium optical glass and are coated with Steiner’s own natural color transmission multi-coating which boosts light transmission much higher than similar binoculars in this price range and yields extraordinary clarity, resolution and color fidelity.
Focusing is Steiner’s unique "Fast-Focus" system which turns from close focus to infinite distance in two full turns of the focus wheel, for razor sharp fine tuning. The focusing is smooth and precise, and it's waterproof.
Since birds are skittish by the presence of bright or light colors, Steiner tried the opposite approach with the exterior finish of the Merlin: the almost transparent neutral color on the Merlin is a unique earth tone brown; chosen by Steiner's development staff and birders as a color least noticeable to birds.
