backyard birding made easy - 04/01/2016

by kathleen from Buffalo, NY

After years of using small Nikon binoculars I finally moved up to Zeiss Terra ED 10x42. I am 65 and use progressive lenses for work and reading. I have contact lenses for hiking and sporting events. I have used my Zeiss with glasses, with contacts and just by adjusting to my "naked" eyes. These optics are great in low light conditions and have adjustments for glasses or without; extremely comfortable. Looking forward to taking a birding adventure in state park this month.
These are heavier than my little Nikons but the improved birding experience makes it the extra weight worthwhile.

love 'em - 01/10/2016

love the quick focus, the close focus, and just about everything else-
eagle optics provided a usable case and zeiss provided a free copy of the warbler guide- sweet!

Zeiss Terra ED 10X42 binocular - 06/11/2015

by Ron from CA

I really like these binoculars. They are bright, easy to focus.
Not too heavy. I use them for birding and like the colors nice and bright. I also think the depth perception of these binoculars is really good.
I would recommend them to anyone who needs a new pair of bincoluars.
They are good value for the money.

Excellent pair of binoculars - 04/18/2015

by Cody M. from Streeter, ND

Ordering and shipping were easy to do, and they arrived promptly. The focus knob is easy to use and the clarity is great. They are the best in low light conditions far surpassing other binoculars that I have used. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a reasonably priced excellent binocular!

Sharp Focus, Lots of Bang for your Bino Budget - 04/10/2015

by Bob W. from Omaha, NE

These are a fine optical instrument. Focus is sharp from center of the image to the extreme edge. These binoculars and their lens coating seem to be able to suck light into the image. I love birding at twilight and seeing more light in the Bino image than the available ambient light. A shout out to Eagle Optics for their incredible service from providing folks who actually are able to answer repurchase questions to free shipping. Providing a usable protective field bag, in lieu of Zeiss' idiotic mantle presentation case. And yes free day and a half shipping. A good experience all the way through.

Brilliant binos for the price!! - 03/29/2015

by Slim from London

My previous binoculars are Vortex viper HD 8x42 great optics very clear and sharp but 8x just doesn't satisfy my views enough!!

I decided to go Zeiss Terra 10x42 and boy this is a bargain. First impression fit & finish is superb nicely blacked out. I absolutely love the speed of the focused and the depth of field is brilliant.

Optics are on par with any binos I tried costing £500. The image is bright and contrasty, the sweet spot is generous and I found the 14mm eye relief more than adequate for those in doubt of this. Low light performance is also excellent for this price tag. I actually compared these with my vortex side by side and believe me there is hardly any difference, remember the vortex was an x8 vs Terra x10. I am now keeping these for as Lon as they can serve me. Zeiss knocked it out if the park with this pair.

Spectacular Views - 03/25/2015

by Linda L. from Texas

It's hard to believe you can pick up a pair of binoculars and see forever, but with the Zeiss Terra ED binoculars it's possible. The light that comes through is amazing and once you have used binoculars of this quality you will never want to use run-of-the-mill binoculars ever again.

Great product...Great Price - 03/11/2015

by Jon K from CA

Great product...Great price!

More Bang for your buck. I shopped around and checked out others costing double the price.

Beautiful Binoculars... But... - 02/10/2015

by Randy L. from Berlin, MA

My sixth Zeiss purchase from Eagle Optics, I buy from no one else. Love these binoculars, on par with the clarity and sharpness of my 10X32 Conquest HD's also purchased from Eagle Optics, and the free field case (thanks Eagle Optics!) certainly was appreciated. The cheap pouch was a joke, but my biggest pet peeve is the same as others, what was Zeiss thinking with the stupid and borderline environmentally irresponsible plastic case I feel too guilty about throwing into the trash? Are you kidding me Zeiss, really, what do you suggest I do with this behemouth plastic case?

5 Stars on the bino's, -5 Stars on Zeiss' "display" case stupidity.

Quality product at a reasonable price

What were they thinking? - 07/04/2014

by Joe from Pittsburgh

I used my Cabelas points to get the 10 x42 Zeiss Terra ED binocular, a very nice glass. Came with a great jewel box type display case and even a velvet-like cloth bag. My question is, do I put the bino in the bag and then the plastic box and then in my backpack or just duct tape the box to my quad rack? What a joke! A $400-$450 quality instrument that is meant to be carried to the field in a cloth bag and/or plastic box? Come on Zeiss. After the fact, I see that Eagle Optics supplies a free field case. Guess I'll get my points back and purchase the glass from Eagle. Sorry Cabelas. I know it's not your fault but I am p----d! I would rate the binocular as 5 stars but the whole package as 2 stars for idiocy.

Zeiss Terra ED 10x42 Binocular - 05/27/2014

by Steven D. from United States

Decided to purchase these binoculars after reading a bunch of favorable reviews on different websites. We will be using them mostly for wildlife viewing.

Zeiss had a great rebate offer for $50 that made this deal irresistible so I decided to purchase through Eagle since their website was very complete and user friendly.

Delivery and shipping went well...all in all a wonderful experience.

***All my friends who have looked through my new binoculars are very impressed with the quality and overall construction of them.***

The only slightly negative part was filling out and sending in the rebate form...but that was a Zeiss problem not Eagle Optics.

I would definitely purchase from Eagle again in the future.

Zeiss terra 10x42 - 04/16/2014

by Joe G. from Nyc,ny

The optics are excellent. I like to ten power over the eight. The best part is that the weight is very light and the binoculars handle very well. Excellent for birding.

Ridiculous Packaging - 04/09/2014

by Steve from Portland, Oregon

Main use for these is birding. Coming from a relative inexpensive pair of Nikon 8 X 42's it was not the increased magnification that I noticed as much as the incredible increase in clarity and color, particularly at longer distances. The depth of field is very narrow, which I like and the focus knob is solid and precise.

My only complaint about the Terra was the packaging. Yes, the gigantic clear and white hunk of plastic that looks more like a display case for a museum piece than a shipping carton. With a good field case, I can see no reason to every put the binoculars back in this monster. It is a horrid waste of material that will just be thrown away and I see no indication that it is recyclable.

Fine binos, outstanding customer service. - 03/28/2014

by Gary R from Chelan, Washington

I have only had the binoculars for a few weeks, but they are all that I expected, good quality glass and good sturdy build. They fit my hands well and the weight is fine. I had a concern with the eye relief but after testing them and comparing them to others with greater eye relief the Terras work just fine with my glasses. EOs customer service is outstanding. I exchanged emails and phone calls with Ben for about a month or more as he helped me make a decision. With his help I narrowed my choices to 2 pair. Ben sent me the 2 pair and after a week or more of using the 2 and a few more emails I made my decision and returned the other pair. Dealing with Ben and Eagle has been a real pleasure and I will certainly tell my friends of my experience and I would not hesitate to shop there again. Thank you Ben and Eagle Optics.

Great quality, but a bit too heavy for me - 03/18/2014

by ann from Salt Lake City, UT

So, I really wanted these snazzy little binos, but my eye-width seemed a bit too narrow for them. I ended up with a lot of fuzz in my field of view, even on the inner portion of the lenses. They also seemed a bit too heavy for me, as I had trouble holding them steady. They arrived in great shape, and returning them was no problem. I settled for the Vortex Viper 8x28. I know, I did sacrifice some magnification and light gathering, but I have a great quality, lightweight binocular for my little outdoor adventures.

So far, looks good - 10/24/2013

by Four by Six from DFW

Only had a while. Picture is very bright. Depth of focus is narrow, in that you will need to adjust focus wheel as you pan and locate different objects in your field of view. Lots of sun and glare diminish the contrast of the image, but at dusk the image is stunning. I have eye problems, and the diopter adjustment and past infinity focus allow me use with and without my glasses. Very comfortable glassing and ease of use. You just lift them up and there's the image - no hunting around for best image. Very happy with purchase thus far.
