Product Description

Amazon.com

With their reliable, high-quality optical system and rugged construction, Swarovski's Slim Light Compact (SLC) 56 binoculars are among the world's most popular high-end optics. The SLC 15x56 model--which boasts an impressive 15x magnification and a 56mm objective lens--offers the highest practical magnification in a binocular, ensuring the best possible results for detailed and professional bird identification. Each binocular in the SLC series sports either a high-quality Swarobright coating, which produces maximum color fidelity across the entire light spectrum, or Swarotop and Swarodur coatings, which are built to create bright, high-contrast images. As a result, you can view crisp images of your favorite finches and hawks even in low-light conditions. The binoculars also feature a nonstick Swaroclean coating on the outer surface of each lens. The coating--which helps extend the lifespan of your lens--is particularly effective when you need to remove dried-on mineral residues (such as water marks from condensation), insect repellents, and tree resin.

To promote secure and comfortable handling while you view birds or wildlife, the SLC 56 includes thumb rests on the underside and depressions on the topside of the easy-to-grip rubber armoring. The binocular really shows off its strengths when used in adverse light conditions, however, with truly awesome images that shine brightly even in the transition period between dusk and night. You can even combine the binocular with the Booster to create a monocular magnification as large as 30x. Other features include a sturdy metal housing with a nonslip rubber armoring; nitrogen purging to prevent internal fogging; and a waterproof exterior that's submersible up to 13 feet. The SLC 56--which comes with a fast and convenient SLC tripod adapter--carries a lifetime warranty.

About Swarovski Optik
Although founded in 1949, Swarovski Optik's roots actually trace all the way back to 1895, when Austrian Daniel Swarovski--who invented the world's first electric grinding machine for jewelry stones--established the family-owned Swarovski Crystal in the province of Tyrol. Since then, the name Swarovski has become synonymous worldwide with the clearest crystal, precision grinding, and a brilliant spirit of innovation, as the original enterprise continued branching out into additional lines of business.

Swarovski Optik owes its rise to Wilhelm Swarovski, son of the original founder and an avid hobby astronomer, who decided to build his own improved binocular in 1935 at a mere 17 years of age. With access to the specialized glass production and finishing technologies already used to manufacture jewelry stones in his father's factory, Wilhelm managed to develop a novel prism fabrication and grinding process that he applied in constructing his first 6x30 binocular. Wilhelm went on to found Swarovski Optik KG in Absam, Tyrol, in 1949, thus laying the foundation for a sports optics company with a global reputation. His company's first serial product, the Habicht 7x42, is still an industry standard in the field of hunting optics and continues to be produced in the best tradition of its founder.

Not a single user-review of the Swarovski 15X56 binoculars? Someone is going to have to step up. I don't have a clue how to write product reviews, but in this case, anything is better than nothing.

I use binoculars professionally. I keep a pair of the tiny Swarovski opera-glass binoculars in 8X just for stuffing into my shirt pocket on arduous hikes when I'm pretty sure I will not even use them. Usually I fish them out two or three times during a hike to see just what the heck is that unidentifiable something way up on some distant escarpment. These are binoculars we endure rather than enjoy. They provide only the most primitive function, but they do it without being a burden.

I maintain a pair of Swarovski 8.5X42 EL binoculars for boat-duty. When I'm bouncing around in the waves trying to make out whether that distant bird is a ringbill-gull or an osprey, this pair of binoculars is the ticket with relatively low magnification and with that big open space betweeen the barrels for easy grabbing in a bucking boat. My only complaint is the focus-wheel. I suspect most of us, like me, are constantly tuning the focus as we view. The focus mechanism better work so well we don't even have to think about it. Unfortunately, that is not the case with my 8.5X42 ELs. To appreciate it, imagine a piece of pvc pipe with a slightly loose coupling, greased with Vaseline, so the coupling is free to spin and function as a focus-wheel. Some days the focus feels a little gritty, and other days, maybe depending on the temperature, the wheel turns with a little series of micro-shudders, as if the Vaseline can't decide whether to skate or grab. I've even had days when the focus-wheel gave a series of little pop sounds as I turned it, as though some air bubbles were trapped in the Vaseline.

I just purchased a pair of used 15x56 Swarovski binos. I have hunted with Steiner binos for years and never had an issue. When the Swarovski's arrived at my office I removed them from the packing and started viewing the neighborhood from the 7th floor of my office. I was seeing buildings more than a mile away and reading the entrance signs. Unbelieveable! I cant imagine how a bino could be any clearer or more in focus. As a negative, these binos are a bit heavy for a long hike in the woods, but they will permit a very clear view of the areas outside of a blind or from a hillside with a 400 yard view of a valley floor where the muy grandes chase the girls.
