Swarovski Binoculars EL 8.5×42 Versus Nikon Binoculars 8×42 HG DCF

Arriving at the high end binoculars they are all pretty good, must be at price control but not always goes to a pair of binoculars that stands out from the crowd and for me that is certainly the Swarovski Binoculars. s The EL 8.5×42 'are absolutely amazing, you pick them up and just know that you are holding the weight and balance is superb. The 8×42 HG DCF Nikon Binoculars definitely feel heavier and yet they are the clearest of the two (795g vs 819g).

When you take a pair of Swarovski binoculars only feel special, even when they are between the elite of the elite. The high-grade Nikon feels good, but there is a definite difference which makes Swarovski, for me, win hands down.

As they expect the optical quality of both the Nikon and the Swarovski binoculars is outstanding. The Swarovski EL have a slight advantage of an extra 0.5x magnification gives them an advantage additional. Both offer a clear image, the contrast of the Nikon is perhaps a little better but the Swarovski binoculars, in my opinion, are the brightest and have the best resolution, although the resolution of the 8×42 HG DCF Nikon binoculars is close.

Some people prefer the color retention of the Nikon HG 8×42 binoculars but I found that the Swarovski binoculars to be exceptionally good. s The EL 8.5×42 'have the latest technology with Swarobright prism coating which dramatically increases light transmission and ensures natural color.

Depth of field for Swarovski EL 8.5×42 's are at the top and again with field of view is 62.0o compared to 52.1o 8×42 HG DCF Nikon binoculars.

Both the EL 8.5×42 Swarovski binoculars and the 8×42 HG DCF Nikon binoculars enable close focusing, 2.5 meters and 3.0 meters respectively, not much to choose between them, both with excellent image quality.

Show users can use binoculars Swarovski come with twist in eyecups (eye relief 18mm) and Nikon have turn and slide rubber cups (20 mm eye relief), both are comfortable to use, but certainly the preferred Swarovski only has the advantage despite a 4.9mm exit pupil slightly smaller (5.3 mm compared with the Nikon).

The 8×42 HG DCF Nikon binoculars are waterproof to 2mtrs, nitrogen filled and sealed and a good performance under extreme conditions. Swarovski binoculars are waterproof to 4mtrs, also nitrogen filling and sealing. Both are highly durable rubber-armored, little to choose between them.

I think we can assume that my favorites are the Swarovski EL binoculars 8.5 x42, exceptional all round wildlife / bird watching binoculars, beautiful to hold, excellent image quality and good performance in low light. For anyone found in the market for a high-end binocular then have Swarovski EL binoculars definitely has to be strong contender. Use it once and never want to be without them so if you do not have £ 1,000 + to spend on a pair of binoculars I recommend you not try!
