Product Description

Product Description

Endeavor ED 1042 Binoculars

Vanguard's top-of-the-range 10x42 Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable colour resolution and contrast.

The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms.

The magic behind the binocular's performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces light dispersion to provide high-resolution colours and clarity. As a result, you can view objects from a distance as if they were standing right next to you. Vanguard also added an anti-reflective coating for even better clarity and a large focussing wheel for ease of use. Also, thanks to the binocular's nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design, the Endeavor's waterproof/fogproof housing can take on the most challenging weather conditions.

Lenses, prisms and coatings

ED Glass
ED Glass

ED glass effectively reduces colour dispersion and enhances colour resolution and contrast. Different light wavelengths do not come to the same point after passing the lens. ED glass helps to correct this problem. As a result, the image is sharper.

P2 Phase Coating

Developed for enhanced image clarity and true colour reproduction, P2 Phase Coating treatment to BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation.

V-Max Coating

V-Max Silver Coating is among the most cutting-edge lens treatments in optics, providing crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection.

AR coating (Anti-Reflection)

AR Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.

Emerald coating

The VANGUARD Emerald coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of colour within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.

Waterproof

Nitrogen charged and O-ring sealed, Endeavour is waterproof and fog proof to take on the most challenging weather conditions.

I had decided to purchase a new set of binoculars to use instead of my current Opticron MCF 10x24 which I purchased for about £50 in the early 80's.
I decided on the Endeavour ED 10X42 binoculars for the following reasons:
I wanted a pair of binoculars I could use with glasses,
I wanted a pair of binoculars that would give a bit more light in lower light,
I was hoping for slightly better quality.
With the above being considered I did a fair bit of research and came up with the model I finally chose.
The reason I have only given these binoculars a 3 star rating is that on trying them from bright sunlight to night time under street lighting I could see little difference in light gathering or sharpness of image compared to my previous binoculars.The new binoculars are also considerably heavier which would not be a problem if there had been a noticeable improvement in image or brightness in lower lighting conditions.
The binoculars do appear to be of a solid build quality and can be used with my glasses on although I find that I am at limit of eye relief in that I have to press glasses partly into fully retracted eye cups to get full image.
Quality overall pretty good so do not want to put others off but was expecting better for the price considering technology and lens coatings have moved on in the last thirty years....or maybe not!

I spent a lot of time reading reviews for these binoculars, other 10x binoculars in the Vanguard range, and of their competition. In the end I plumped for these as they seemed as though they'd be as good as competitors up to around the £300 mark.

While I haven't tried any of their competitors, I can confirm that the Endeavour ED are great quality.

If you've done your research you'll no doubt have found some discussion online of colour fringing. It seems as though some people are unable to detect it, while others complain that the edges of objects silhouetted against a skyline are subject to green/purple edges. I can see it, and while I was initially quite disappointed and considered returning them, I persuaded myself to take them for a more realistic test than ogling chimney pots of the houses on my street. Not all the things I'll want to look at will be silhouetted against a white sky, and the fringes of colour don't appear when viewing objects that don't have a bright sky behind.

I discovered two things; 1) I could affect the degree to which the fringing appeared by moving my eye relative to the centre of the eyepiece (the closer my eye was to the middle, the less visible the thin purple outline) and 2) the image quality is pretty damned good, and when viewing things that weren't silhouetted against the sky I really couldn't fault them.

I did some more reading and concluded I'd probably need to spend around double the price in order to get some bins that I thought would be better (it seems the ED are among the crispest in this price bracket), so I opted to keep them. I took them on a trip to the west coast of Scotland, and was very happy with their performance.

Oh I just hate how reviews tell you how wonderful something is without attaching the emotional and deeper thoughts of the reviewer, so let me start by saying when these binoculars arrived they felt slightly heavier than I expected.

Clearly they feel well made and even the box feels like quality.

I've always wanted a great pair of binoculars and was persuaded to go with these after reading reviews and understanding more about the 10x42.

They give me a wider view and they are sharp and very bright.

They give you the sense that they could sit on the mantle piece for all to see and be handy when you need them.

Everything you've read about them being top notch is true and correct... just be aware though that the weight is really the compromise on price other than that ... excellent.

Don't get me wrong they feel well balanced and easy to handle.

I did my research before deciding to purchase these award winning bins. I was genuinely delighted with the quality - the ED glass produces an amazingly clear and colourful view. Far better than my Monarchs (which were good). A real pleasure to use. They feel really comfortable and are very well made. Excellent field of view (6.5 degrees) also better than my Nikons.
The only minor disadvantages are that at 730g they are slightly heavier than the very lightest available and that you have to be very precise with the focussing wheel - this though you get used to after a few uses and is not a long term issue.

Highly recommended. Superb Value.

I did a lot research on review sites before deciding to purchase these binoculars, i can honestly say they have lived up to their high reviews.
A pleasure to use, a bit heavier than my last pair but this does not detract, they are really comfortable to hold and are well made.
A good quality case is provided, quality neck strap, clever adjustment on strap, pity the case zip did not have two zip tabs.
I am very pleased with my purchase and can highly recommend these binoculars for general use and birdwatching.
