Review: Peregrine ed 10x42 Viking optical Binoculars

Viking Optical Rewiews

Over the past couple of weeks I have enjoyed field testing Viking opticals new range of Peregrine ed 10x42 Binoculars. Testing them in a range of circumstances including, watching gulls, passerines to raptors to fully test their range. I really enjoyed sifting through hundreds of gulls in my local harbour in all weather conditions while testing these binoculars. Makes life easier to pick up interesting gulls when you are using quality optics!

Some details about the Peregrine ed 10x42 Binoculars from Viking optical;


• Extra Low Dispersion glass objective lenses
• Fully multicoated optics
• Dielectric coated, phase corrected BAK 4 Prisms
• Smooth rubber armour & fully waterproof
• Twist down eyecups for spectacle wearers
• Supplied with rainguard, case and strap
• Weight: 8×42 600g; 10×42 610g
• 10 year guarantee

There are several features of these binoculars that I found very impressive, they include;

  1. The extra low dispersion glass, making them good to use in low light and not just in good lighting situation. And also giving a crisp viewing.
  2. Weight, 10×42 610g. A good sturdy pair of binoculars, but not uncumfortable heavy while using for long periods of time.
  3. Easy to focus, while watching birds in flight or on the deck.
  4. The smooth rubber armor, easy to grip even in wet weather unlike other binoculars which for me can be a big let down, but not with these!
  5. The only thing about these binoculars for me that lets them down is the eye cups. The fact that your eye can not sit into them like the Merlin ed 10x42 for example. (Attached below). Though they are still comfortable for long periods of viewing.

So, over all I found the Peregrine ed 10x42 binoculars very impressive and brilliant for all aspects of the nature and birding world. Brilliant for birders and nature lovers a like.
