Endeavor ED II 8420
Vanguard, global leader in sporting optics and accessories, is pleased to announce that BestBinocularsReviews.com has named the Vanguard Endeavor ED II 8x42 binoculars the Best Wildlife Observation Binocular of 2014.
BestBinocularsReviews.com is a compendium of in-depth reviews of the best binoculars available on the market, and this year marks the 5th annual Best Binocular Reviews Awards.
To win the Best Wildlife Observation Binocular category, the candidate was required to be lightweight, extra tough, and to have excellent image brightness and quality. Jason Whitehead of BestBinocularsReviews.com writes that its winner the Vanguard Endeavor ED II 8x42, with its Japanese extra-low dispersion glass, not only looks super bright in low light, but is vibrant, completely sharp, flat right to the edges and with almost no perceptible color fringing. The review continues: image quality is one area where these Vanguard bins truly excel and even though they now sit within the mid-high value category, I feel they easily match bins are significantly more expensive.
Endeavor ED II 8x42 builds on the success of previous generations of Vanguard binoculars by delivering an outstanding optical performance. This is delivered through the high-quality Japanese Extra-low Dispersion (ED) optics that produce a bright, natural image which stays sharp to the very edges (even at close focus).
The lockable dioptre adjustment means that once youve set it up, even if you accidentally knock it, you shouldnt have to reset it. This, along with the comfortable focus adjustment wheel, makes focusing in the field fast and precise, making scanning wide areas or following a bird in flight easy.
The new Endeavor ED II 8x42 also boasts great ergonomics. The magnesium alloy body keeps the weight low at 770g without compromising on quality or durability. Combining the lightweight body with the open grip design, textured rubber armour and moulded thumb impressions makes every Endeavor ED II a pleasure to hold, even for extended periods.
As you would also expect, the new Endeavor ED II 8x42s are designed for every environment, being waterproof and nitrogen purged to ensure they dont fog up. This means whatever the conditions, theyre there to give you the best possible experience.
In summary the new Endeavor ED II 8x42 delivers:
