The Safari 8x30 Pro is a wonderful all purpose outdoor companion, and is Steiner's 'entry level' porro prism binocular. However, what constitutes as entry level from this German manufacturer could qualify as a premium optic from others.
The 8x30 Safari Pro weighs only 18 ounces and is small and light enough to travel easily, yet powerful enough to put you in the middle of the action. The 8x30 Pro is designed like the versatile Steiner Military/Marine binocular, but with greater glare and UV blocking ability, nearly 100% UV-A and UV-B is blocked from your view for a comfortable, high contrast image. The profiled "wrap around" eyecups to block distracting side light and will keep you focused on your subject. The 8x30 Safari Pro feature Steiner's convenient automatic focus that gives you a sharp, clear view of everything from approximately 20 yards to infinity.
