Product Specifications

If you need high performance for faster discovery, especially of birds on the move, take a close looks at the new light weight alloy bodied Steiner Merlin. They are precise, yet amazingly rugged and also fully waterproofed for even the rainiest days. The optics are made with premium optical glass and are coated with own natural color transmission multi-coating which boosts light transmission much higher than similar binoculars in this price range and yields extraordinary clarity, resolution and color fidelity. Focusing is unique "Fast-Focus" system which turns from close focus to infinite distance in two full turns of the focus wheel, for razor sharp fine tuning. The focusing is smooth and precise, and it's waterproof. Since birds are skittish by the presence of bright or light colors, Steiner tried the opposite approach with the exterior finish of the Merlin: the almost transparent neutral color on the Merlin is a unique earth tone brown; chosen by Steiner's development staff and birders as a color least noticeable to birds.
