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

Found a very interesting website called Best Binoculars and Binoculars Review website and they provide a very comprehensive review of all that is available and with quailty reviews of what is out there and believe me there is a lot and very difficult to make a choice. However I was drawn to the review on the website that the Vanguard Spirit ED 10x42 were the set that I should purchase. Recommended best buy for 2011. So sent away for them throught Amazon and alougth thy were out of stock I decieded to wait for them. A week later they arrived and WoW what a fantastic piece of engineering. Very high quality, easy to use and comes with flip down cups to protect the Hight Quality Optics. A Quality case and strap is included and they dont weigh much like some of the others available.
So what is the quality like, Well I have to say that I was more than impressed with the quality of the optics. Looking through the lenses was like 3D and 10 Times better than the Nikon ones that I had tried. So much detail was available and I was taken aback with the overall quality and detail.Read more ›
The VANGUARD Spirit ED 1042 Binoculars are really top class, giving a bright crisp view. Apparently (according to an independent review) in their price bracket they out perform much more expensive bins and were voted Best Value for Money binoculars 2011. That must surely be a great recommendation for starters.
They come with a really nice padded bag and a very smart shoulder/neck strap, both front and rear lens caps all of which can be fixed to the bins or straps which should make them difficult to lose. They are extremely easy to set up for your specific eyesight, they have wind out cups for the non spectacled wearer too. The focus wheel is designed to only rotate through three quarters of a turn so focussing is a pretty fast and easy affair.
The bins are 100% waterproof to a depth of one metre underwater so the odd downpour isn't going to hurt them at all, they are encased in a pretty rugged looking plastic which I guess will take the odd hard knock or two. The bins also have a tripod adaptor screw point.
On the con side I have noticed that in strong sunlight, and only when I scanned from side to side there appeared a purple halo round the birds I was looking at, when I stopped scanning it was fine, apparently this is called a Chromatic aberration and the special ED glass the lenses are made of is supposed to prevent this!Read more ›

My first pair of binoculars and I had considered some cheaper ones, but thought that you get what you pay for and with optical products its probably best paying a bit more. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Paul Sloane
