  • Description

    The Steiner 8x42 Predator Binoculars from the popular Hunting Series were made for hunters who demand all-around capability in their optics - mobility without weight, ease of use and bright picture in any light. With its lightweight roof prism design, game-revealing CAT™ (color adjusted transmission) coatings and excellent low-light performance, this is the perfect choice for turkey hunters, bow hunters, black powder enthusiasts and anyone who hunts the early season or in heavy cover.  Once you’re after that trophy, nothing can hold you back. So in addition to providing the deadliest image you can get, the Steiner Predator Series will survive the worst conditions you can face. Low light or heavy glare, high water to deep cold, rock slams and grit storms, no matter. The view is always crystal clear and dead certain.  Even after countless monster-obsessed pursuits, Steiner optics are eager for more and ready to go.  Not unlike yourself.


      • CAT Color Adjust Transmission - Amplifies contrast in the peak human vision sensitivity range, to spot game in any environment.
      • "Fast Close Focus" System - Center focus wheel requires minimal rotation for quick, absolute sharpness from close up to infinity.

      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.
