The Olympus 8×42 EXWP I Binocular is a premium go-anywhere globetrotting roof prism model for universal use, providing truly excellent viewing and handling at a very reasonable price. It is great for bird watching, hunting, sports action, or just as a general travel companion. The 8×42 Magellan’s sleek rubber armored body is considerably lighter and smaller than most 8×42 roofs, despite a metal construction that can really take a beating. Its optics are fully multicoated, with phase coated roof prisms, and its speedy focusing dial is a joy to use. It also has modern soft rubber turning-style eyecups.
