The Zeiss Terra® ED 8x42 binoculars are robust, reliable, and easy to use. Their state-of-the-art and sleek design makes them not only light but comfortably compact. The highest optical precision and the hydrophobic multicoating guarantee brilliant images down to the very last detail. The Terra ED binoculars are waterproof and nitrogen-filled, making them rough and ready. Terra ED binoculars are excellent value for money, making them the perfect entry into the world of Zeiss.

With its compact and attractive design as well as a nearly indestructible casing with perfect ergonomics, the Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 is the ideal all-around set of binoculars. With 8x magnification, the Terra ED 8x42 offers you both large fields of view and steady images. The compact design and the large lens diameter are optimal for occasional birdwatching. The SCHOTT ED glass with a hydrophobic multi-coating provides optical clarity and precision in all situations.

The large, smooth and easy-to-grip focus wheel makes focusing particularly easy and, most of all, quick. You will notice the advantages of Terra ED binoculars as soon as you pick them up: your index finger automatically lands on the focusing wheel. You'll never again need to think about how you hold the binoculars when something exciting suddenly happens in front of you. In next to no time, you'll have it sharply in focus.

The Zeiss T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.

With its waterproof casing reinforced with glass fibres, the Zeiss Terra ED satisfies the high standards of nature lovers. Lightweight, easy to fit into any bag and nearly indestructible, these binoculars are the perfect companion.

There are always exciting things to be seen in the world of nature, even in wet weather. This is why Zeiss developed LotuTec®. A coating for the lenses of binoculars and spotting scopes that enables a clear and unhindered view in all weather conditions.

  Admittedly it has been 20years since I bought binoculars but failing vision and a desire to actually see what is twittering around me led me to these binoculars. Light, comfortable in the hand and the clarity of vision is excellent. Well worth every penny

  Very happy with the product and service. Delivered to Norway, the item was faulty and therefore returned. The service from the Woodlore team was first class in resolving the issue. A new pair was shipped off and delivered to me in no time. These binos are now my favourite piece of kit I own and I wont be leaving on a trip without them. Along with a loupe I recently purchased, these binos has transformed my time outdoors. Wish I had bought a good pair of binos long ago.
