History of Steiner
For Steiner, superb performance and bone-deep tenacity was born in the ruin of war. In 1947, in the face of demolished infrastructures and a collapsed economy, Karl Steiner started a one-man workshop in Bayreuth, Germany, obsessed with a single goal: creating optical products so functional, sturdy and uniformly flawless that nothing in the chaotic, mass-production post-war world could compare. His passion for unmatched optical perfection pushed Steiner-Optik from a hardscrabble startup to a 50-man factory within six years, and on to become a worldwide optical icon with binoculars and rifle scopes for every purpose, a history of innovation, and legions of die hard enthusiasts in every category.
These premium German optics are now available in 65 countries, prized by sportsmen and spectators, birders and mariners, aviators and explorers, and deployed by security and military forces around the globe. The research, development and production site in Bayreuth is arguably the most advanced optical facility on earth. Steiner world-class lenses, coatings and prisms are created, perfected and produced in Germany, enduring the most exhaustive production, inspection, testing and approval process in the industry – lenses alone go through 460 exacting steps. Finished lenses, crafted and uniquely multi-coated for specific purposes, are assembled into specialized binoculars and rifle scopes, then inspected, tested and approved again. Once past final inspection, each and every Steiner optic provides the most reliable, accurate and satisfying viewing experience in its category, bar none, period.

Q1: Are blue tinted objective lenses used in military service because of the little reflection produced? Do other tints create more visible reflection thus possible being seen by the enemy?
A: That is correct.
Q2: Are these auto focus? If yes, are there any disadvantages as opposed to adjustable binoculars? Are theses binoculars too powerful for viewing sports such as football, baseball, or basketball?
A: These are not "Auto-Focus" binoculars, but "Individual Focus". You adjust the diopter of each eyepiece to your vision and then they require no further adjustments. They are not too powerful for sporting events. In fact, an 8x binocular is typically the most recommended for stadium sports.
Q3: Are these binoculars suitable for use with glasses?
A: Absolutely, the measurement to keep in mind when buying binoculars and wearing glasses is called the eye relief. For comfortable viewing through the binocular while wearing glasses you will need an eye relief measurement of 15mm or greater. These have an eye relief of 20mm.
Q4: Could you give me a low light comparison of the 8x30 military marine, the 8x30 predator and the 8x30 safari?
A: Steiner's 8x30 Predator, Military/Marine and Safari binoculars have similar low-light capabilities, though the Predators and M/Ms are a tiny bit brighter because of the UV/Glare blocking coating on the Safaris.
Q5: Is a reticle inside? Is the image color-neutral, or is a yellow or greenish tint visible?
A: These do not have a reticle, the Military R is the Steiner version that does. There is a slight greenish tint with these but it is almost imperceptible to the naked eye.
Q6: What do these weigh? Are these what I would want for a safari?
A: Steiner's 8x30 Military-Marine binoculars weigh 18 ounces. They're small and will do a nice job on a safari. Just make sure you focus each eyepiece at 50 yards before you set out, and you shouldn't have to mess with focusing again that day.
Q7: What is the minimum distance that these glasses may be focused?
A: The close focus works out to be approximately 10ft.
