Vanguard Endeavor ED 10x 42mm Binoculars

Product Overview

Vanguard's top of the line 10x42 Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable color resolution and contrast.

The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms. Nitrogen-charged and o-ring sealed, the Endeavor ED is water/fog proof to take on challenging weather conditions.

Product Features

Extra low-dispersion glass effectively reduces color dispersion and enhances color resolution and contrast. ED glass aligns the colors to meet at the same focal plane to reduce the chromatic aberration and obtain the highest resolution and image contrast. As a result, the image is sharper.

P2 Phase Coating was developed for enhanced image clarity and true color reproduction. Vanguard's P2 phase-coated BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation.

V-Max Silver Coating is among the most cutting-edge lens treatments in optics, providing crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection.

Anti-Reflection Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.

Emerald Coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of color within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.

Excellent binoculars, very bright and sharp, easy to adjust.
R. D. Collins
I own both the Vanguard Endeavor ED 10x42 and the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10x42, and am able to provide a direct comparison between these two very similar binoculars.
Regolith
Diopter adjustment (right eye focus) -- The diopter ring on the Vanguards is much easier to operate than that on the Bushnells.

I finally decided that I like to bird watch enough and make enough money to justify purchasing a really good pair of binoculars. Over the years I have had many pairs of under $100 binoculars and also own a slightly more expensive pair of compact Pentax binos so, I'm used to looking through lower cost binos. I read many online reviews before my purchase. Vangaurd binoculars seems to consistently be rated as a best buy. I was willing to spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars on a pair of binoculars but I wasn't willing to spring for a grand. Vangaurds, especially with ED glass, seemed to compare favorably to much more expensive binos.

I did a side by side comparison of this binocular and the Vangaurd Endeavor 8.5 X 45 version. I actually thought I was going to want the higher power 10x42 version of the Endeavor. Based on my cheaper binoculars, I tended to like my 10 power binoculars better than lower powered ones. It look very little time to determine that the 8.5x45 binoculars were the superior ones with the side by side comparison. The 8.5x45 were significantly brighter and sharper. The field of view is listed as 340 ft at 1000 ft on both binos. However, the field of view definitely appeared to be wider on the 8.5 x 45 pair. The 10x42 worked OK with my glasses but I did feel as though I lost a small portion of the FOV. The 8.5x45 were great with glasses on or off. Using either pair it was easy to find birds hidden deep withing pine trees. The superior contrast allowed me to see details, even when birds were in dark areas, but again, the 8.5x45s were the standout. Certainly both pairs of binoculars were superior to any of my other pairs of binos and comparisons made it fairly easy to part with around three hundred bucks.

I am an amateur astronomer. I also wear prescription eyeglasses due to significant astigmatism. I need to keep my glasses on or star images look like footballs. The other reviews were positive and induced me to take the plunge when Amazon put these on a gold box sale. None of the reviews were from astronomers so I was really waiting to see what my experience would be. The title of my review says it all... superb.

Every aspect of these binoculars is well thought out, the captive lens covers, the locking diopter adjustment, the quick focusing. Also, I can't believe the close focus range. The wide field views are excellent and from what I can tell, the collimation is perfect between the two tubes.

Star images are superb with no flare and tack-sharp focus. The coatings really ensure that all the light gets to your eyes. They do very well on dim clusters and nebulae. The moon is rendered excellently with no excess glare or ghosting. Star colors come thru very well. No chromatic aberration to get in the way of the true color.

I have been waiting my whole life for a set of eyeglass-friendly binoculars with this type of image quality. To find them at the aggressive gold box discount was icing on the cake.

Bought these binos because of a review I read. I must admit that I was a little apprehensive as back in the early 90's I had a set of Bausch and Lomb Elites costing well in excess of $1000 and these had a lot of living up to do! Well I would not hesitate in recommending these binos to anyone. They may not have a 'big player' name but if you get the chance take a look at them and then compare them to a pair of Leica or Swarovski's I promise you will be very surprised. I was.
I am an avid birder and light transmission and clarity without chromatic aberration is paramount. I do not think I would justify spending a couple of thousand dollars when to me these are just as good.

I have carefully compared these Vanguard Endeavor ED binoculars (one pair each of 10x42 and 8x42) to a pair of Bushnell Legend Ultra 10x42 binoculars, all of which I purchased from Amazon. Aside from the difference in magnification, the two Vanguards are identical in appearance and function. Subsequent references to "Vanguards" include both magnifications. The Bushnells are similar to the Vanguards in design and features. The differences noted below are slight.

In both brands, overall image sharpness, image-edge sharpness, and brightness are excellent. These are the most important features in any binoculars. I studied a frost-laced spider web at 100 feet, and the clarity was amazing in both binoculars. Advantage - Draw.

Mechanical operation (main focus, interpupillary distance) -- The interpupillary distance adjustment (width), and the main focus are somewhat stiffer in the Bushnells. The main focus in the Bushnells is also a bit awkward to adjust because it has some slack that must be taken up when changing the direction of rotation of the focus wheel. By contrast, the Vanguards have no slack in the focus wheel, with immediate reaction of the focus when the wheel is turned. One reviewer noticed a faint clicking in the Bushnells when operating the main focus wheel. This is not a mechanical flaw in the adjustment mechanism, but merely a "creaking" of the rubber covering of the wheel against the plastic substrate of the wheel. Advantage - Vanguard.

Diopter adjustment (right eye focus) -- The diopter ring on the Vanguards is much easier to operate than that on the Bushnells. The locking mechanism to prevent the diopter setting from being inadvertently changed is easily engaged or disengaged on the Vanguards, but difficult on the Bushnells.
