Expect vivid viewing to the extreme, because there's nothing typical about top-of-the-range Endeavor ED binoculars.
8 x 42 configuration offers one of the widest fields of view (7 degrees) making it easy to spot movement in foliage, and to quickly follow birds or aircraft in flight. They deliver outstanding sharpness, with exceptional 92% light transmission and incredible colour resolution and contrast. Other features include an ergonomic "open-bridge" design for increased comfort. By allowing you to wrap your fingers fully around the binoculars, and in combination with the lightweight, yet rugged construction - just 730g - you're able to hold them steadier and for longer periods of time.
The magic behind Endeavor's performance is in the premium ED glass which reduces colour dispertion to provide high resolution colours and clarity. Endeavor ED also has phase-coated BaK4 roof prisms and special lens coatings adding to the unbelievable quality of image.
Challenging weather poses no problem for Endeavor ED - O-ring sealed and Nitrogen filled, this binocular is waterproof and fog proof. so you can follow your hobby no matter what the conditions.

Optically they are excellent, with really bright and clear imaging. I took a punt on these on the basis I could return them, but I will be holding on to them.
They come with a really nice case and comfortable, adjustable neck or hand strap that can convert for a number of uses. The instructions for this aren't that clear and it took a while to realise what the very small image was portraying.
I doubt the Mark 2 versions are twice as good (which is the pricing differential).
My dilemma was the big difference in price between this model and the newer ones, not wanting to pay the newer models price I went for these. I was expecting these to be less bright than my 8x42 as they are 10x42 but was supprised to find no difference at all very pleased. The image is excellent I cannot see any fringing testing these in very sunny conditions looking at high contrast subjects. The fast focus is great to use, others say its to aggressive I disagree here, only 1 turn of the dial for total focal range is amazing my older binos take nearly 3 turns and so slow.
So glad I decided on these they really are fantastic and would highly recommend them. Left wondering what vanguard has done to improve on these in the newer models for all that extra money, how can they be better?
First thing that you see when taking them out of the box is that they are a vary nice piece of kit, both to look at and to hold, they fit in my hands perfectly.
Second, setting them up was a breeze, plenty of adjustment in the eye cups (i ware glasses and did not have any problems).
Third, the image clarity is brilliant, a good field of view, natural colours.
Last, the case that you get is adequate, but could be better, but at this price you cant complain.
