Swarovski EL 10×42
Birders and nature lovers trust Swarovski EL 10×42 binoculars to share special moments in every exciting detail. For instance, have you ever watched a Wandering Albatross, an exceptionally gifted glider among water birds, letting itself be skillfully carried up high by the updraft? This is a moment that displays nature as majestic and commanding in its own absolute perfection, and you will want only the best set of optics to bring you closer.
Anyone who picks up a pair of EL Family binoculars can sense immediately that Swarovski Optik has been inspired by such sights. With these binoculars, future-oriented technologies meet master crasftsmanship. The result is an almost magical interaction between optics, ergonomics and functionality, rolled into a masterly crafted design that stands out with its subtle elegance from all competitors.
The new EL generation is also molded in this proud tradition. The crystal-clear optics provided by SWAROVISION technology and the unique ergonomic design, including the EL wrap-around grip, are enhanced by the new, perfectly harmonized FieldPro package. This offers an unprecedented level of comfort while birding and enjoying wildlife, thanks to the new carrying strap and objective lens and eyepiece covers.

INNOVATION IN EVERY DETAIL – CONSTANTLY IMPROVING WHAT IS GOOD
This has been the Swarovski Optik motto since day one. For Swarovski, this also means exceeding
their customers’ expectations and surprising them time and again – with the precision of their products,
with their innovative technology, and with their comprehensive customer service.
Swarovski’s products are manufactured with ultra precise tolerances of 8 μ, less than a hair’s breadth (approximately 60 μ). It is only through a combination of maximum precision, state-of-the-art technology and adherence to the high Swarovski Optik quality standards that they are able to consistently and permanently assure the optical perfection for which they are renowned, including razor-sharp, high-contrast images with maximum colour fidelity as a result of exclusively using high-precision lenses and prisms, and complete reliability from -20 °C / +55 °C.
QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
To ensure a consistently high quality level in all their products, Swarovski subject every product and every phase of production to comprehensive, manual quality controls. Every product also undergoes a full image and material control. Swarovski’s quality management system has been certified to ISO 9001/2000 since 1999. Their environmental management system has been certified to ISO 14001 since 2000.
Swarovision technology redefined the concept of optical quality, and is now standard in all Swarovski EL binoculars
Field Flattener lenses provide unprecedented peripheral definition, fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize colour fringing, while optimised coatings ensure maximum colour fidelity.
Large eye relief offering a full field of view for those wearing eye glasses is standard.
Swarovski’s HD optics feature fluoride-containing lenses, which virtually eliminate colour aberrations.
The scatter is considerably less with fluoride than with even the best types of optical glass.
This enables maximum colour fidelity and leads to a significant improvement in resolution and contrast
SWAROTOP AND SWARODUR
Coatings for bright, high-contrast images.
Reduces surface light reflection from 4-6% to 0.2%.
Used on all the lenses and prisms found in SWAROVSKI OPTIK products.
Coating for maximum colour fidelity across the whole light spectrum
SWAROVSKI OPTIK was the first manufacturer in the world to use this technology in series production.
After a long, hard day in the field, nothing feels better than being able to return your optics to crystal clear condition.
This non-stick coating on the lenses makes it easier to clean away dirt such as water marks, insect repellents, or tree resin.
NEW FEATURES IN THE FIELDPRO PACKAGE
The launch of the EL binoculars by Swarovski in 1999 marked a milestone in long-range optics. These binoculars are constantly being improved upon and further enhanced, so it is no surprise that following intensive development and a great deal of dedication, Swarovski has done it again. The result of these efforts is the best EL Family ever, as released in late 2015, with the new FieldPro package.
- Completely redesigned strap and harness connection.
- The new rotating strap connector with a cord adapts perfectly to any movement.
- The bayonet catch enables you to fit and switch the carrying strap and accessories very quickly and flexibly.
- With a simple turn of its practical quick catch button you can rapidly and silently adjust the carrying strap to the right length.
- The objective lens covers blend aesthetically into the overall design and also remain securely attached to the binoculars thanks to the innovative connector.
- The focusing wheel is improved and easier to use, thanks to its softer, fully armored, and more slip-resistant design.
- Personal settings stay unchanged thanks to the diopter adjustment’s new lock function.
