These binoculars epitomize the Teutonic ideals of durability and attention to detail. If Nietzsche were a birder, he'd use these binoculars. It's surprising to me, in fact, that such a radiant image as emerges from the eyepieces of the Steiner Merlin can be the product of mere glass and steel--an ef... Read More

    I have used my Steiner Merlin 10x42 Binocs one year. The fold-back eyecups are very flimsy and do not hold up to normal use, they've cracked and broken. The objective covers do not stay on well either. Steiner does not warranty either the eyecups or lens/objective covers, and they will not last. The click-lock connectors do not work with standard binocular harnesses and straps, so you are forced to buy the much more expensive Steiner harness. The optics are less clear than my alternate pair of less expensive Nikon Monarchs.

    These are going to be very good binoculars for birding or clear distance viewing. They are not lightweight, but I don't know what 10 X 42 binoculars of this quality would also be lightweight.. Thumbs up.

    Hard to imagine finding better binoculars under $300. Wanted for whale watching and bird watching; good for both. And night sky watching too.

    I used a pair of Leitz 8x30 binoculars for years, small handmade from the 1950s but felt I was missing out. I was right. These new Steiner 10x42 binoculars opened up so much more. They gather light well enough to take a picture through the small aperture of my cell phone camera. They can focus on a subject about 6 feet away, great for butterflies that shy away when approached while excellent for birding and wildlife. They appear and feel very rugged. They are heavy but after several 5 mile hikes they were not overly burdensome. I did change the shoulder strap going to a canon EOS strap that had rubber backing making it less prone to slipping off my shoulder. I am going to enjoy these binoculars.
