Swarovski NL Pure 8x42 Binoculars have the widest field of view of any 42mm binocular - 477' at 1000 yds! They have all of the Swarovision features of the ELs in a rubber armored body designed with slimmer tubes to optimally position your hands for long term viewing. Close focus is 6.6' and it takes less than 2 full turns of the focus wheel to get there from infinity. Light transmission is 91% from end to end. The NL Pure's eye relief is 18mm, and field flattener lenses in the eyepiece assembly provide a virtually distortion-free view. The strap and lens coverings attach in the same manner as the EL Pro models, but the case newly designed to make access easier. Also included with each NL Pure binocular is Swarovski's Universal Comfort Strap, a microfiber cloth, and a soap and brush kit for cleaning the rubber armor! Of course, the NL Pure binoculars are waterproof and nitrogen purged to be fogproof. There is an interesting optional accessory available for the NL: a forehead rest that can help steady your hold of the binocular. It is especially useful for eyeglass wearers or those using the 12x42 model.

Just got my NL 8x42 and all I can say is WOW!
5.0 stars

Just got my NL 8x42 and all I can say is WOW! I agree with Arek from Allbinos. I have had over 100 binoculars and I would say it is the BEST binocular I have ever looked through or used. The ergonomics are really superb on the new NL with the molded tubes conforming to your hands perfectly and in fact the binocular looks small for a 42 mm and coupled with excellent balance it is a wonderful binocular to hold and use. I like the strap and side load case finding them very high quality and it is very easy to get your binoculars in and out of the case when they are on their side. Swarovski must have tightened up the FP attachment screws, so they wouldn't come off unintentionally because I had a heck of a time getting them on because you have to press them down and turn them at the same time and then release the pressure and turn them till they click. I ended up using one of those sticky circular silicone devices used to open stuck jar lids to get them on. There is NO way they will come off! As usual with Swarovski the objective covers and rain guards are perfect. The seams on the armour are no issue at all. It is a small artifact of where they took the armour out of the mold when formed. The armour seems a little different from the EL and almost more SLC like in texture and feel so maybe Swarovski has gone back to a possibly tougher SLC type armour having problems with the longevity of the EL armour. Finally, a Swarovski with a Nikon EDG like smooth focuser. I can't believe it! The focuser on the NL is way better than any other previous Swarovski I have tried. The diopter is IMO better than the old one and has a detent and there is NO way you are going to move it in the location it is in. I compared the NL to my Kowa Genesis 8x33 which isn't exactly too shabby and most consider a very good alpha minus binocular which has an 8 degree FOV. Once you got used to the 9.1 degree FOV of the NL the Kowa's 8 degree FOV felt almost tunnel like in comparison. Even though the Kowa is a very good binocular the Swarovski NL just killed it in contrast and clarity. The NL has AMAZING contrast and resolution and the FOV is sharp to the edge with NO Absam Ring of any kind. Like most Swarovskis it is quite neutral in color. I do see Henry's glare at the bottom of the FOV but it is very slight and only present under certain conditions so it is no big deal. The Kowa Genesis 8x33 had the same type of glare in fact. I tried the theory of using 3 to 4 click stops to get rid of the glare but it made no difference. With my shallow eye sockets the most comfortable eye cup setting was position 5 which is where I got the biggest FOV with no blackouts. It is really nice to have 7 different click stops because you can set the eye cups perfect for your eyes. If you are on the fence about the NL don't let the naysayers or the armchair optical engineers talk you out of trying it yourself with their nitpicking. Let your own eyes decide! The NL is probably the most perfect binocular I have ever tried but no binocular is totally perfect. Swarovski says it is the best binocular they have ever made and Allbinos scored the NL 12x42 higher than ANY binocular they have ever tested so it has to be good.
