The primary difference between the Steiner Predator 10×42 and Steiner Predator 8×42 is the magnification. With less zoom, these mid-range hunting or birding binos are more adept for mobile viewing.

With a lightweight roof prism design, the compact yet robust housing will be appreciated by seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

These binoculars boast having an all-around capability, thanks to the CAT coating technology. This coating optimizes contrast by boosting browns and reds, the common colors of most animals, while also filtering out camouflage colors like blues and greens. As a result, you can spot animals quicker than you would with any other binoculars.

Further, the Steiner Predator 8×42 performs well in low-light conditions. The CAT coatings enhance light transmission by 3% to 4%. It is also pretty easy to focus, requiring minimal adjustment to obtain a sharp focus.

Ensuring fogproof clarity in all environments, these binoculars have been sealed with 14-psi pressurized dry nitrogen. You can take them everywhere, even in the highest peaks, and enjoy an uncompromised viewing experience. The durable Makrolon housing, on the other hand, offers waterproof characteristics to a certain extent.

You can easily bring the Steiner Predator 8×42 wherever you go. It is tripod adaptable and has a neck strap with a ClicLoc attachment system. With a push of a button, you can quickly attach or release the neck strap or harness. This quick-release feature is useful, especially for operations that require rapid and precise movements.

The minor issue with these binoculars lies with the objective lens covers, which may fall off easily. It is a good thing that they come with objective lens covers but if these covers fall off constantly, they are rather useless.
