M2080 20x80 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and focused, rugged. I have been toying with these lightweight monsters for two days around the neighborhood and I am amazed. The field of view is quite big and the distortion and halos absent. I am looking forward to many years of care free use based on this brands notoriety for ruggedness, cops in my town also use Steiners (albeit tiny ones).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Used these binoculars @ King of 2 Miles (KO2M) this summer. Wow what performance! The auto focus takes the parallax out and you have a perfect focus at any distance. Bought a pair for spotting and hunting. You can see trace @600 yds like the best spotting scopes in the world. These binoculars take it to the next level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These 20x80 Steiner binoculars are the strongest, best performance, clearest binoculars that I have used and owned in my Life!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent First and foremost I’m a snob when it comes to binoculars. I own Swarovski, Leicas, Zeiss, and sig sauer which I use exclusively for long range precision rifle shooting competitions as a competitor and match director. These are my new favorite hands down. I’ve yet to see binos better at seeing trace and impacts on target. Yes they are big, but that soon becomes not a big deal once you get behind them. I fitted mine to a multi use block as a mount and it’s rock solid, can be on glass all day with no fatigue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have one now but .... I will wait a couple of years to see if they have these same power same ones all around except with image stabilization. Then I will buy it even if it is 1k more

I have a pair of Steiner Merlin 8 x 50 binoculars and love them, I like the eye cups that are standard on their binocular, can you get or does the 20 x 80 come with these eye cups 

Asked by: Robb
The 20x80 does not come with the ergoflex eye cups nor are they available.

what tripod was used in the illustration

Asked by: longstick
The tripod in the image is a discontinued product. Any heavy duty tripod will work with the provided adapter. I would recommend taking a look at Manfrotto tripods. Best Regards, Steiner Customer Service

Do the M2080 have a 195ft. FOV at 1000 yards? Exact same as the M1580? Thought it would be less because of the higher magnification, is that a typo?

Asked by: JoeJoe123
Hello, The correct answer is 174' for the 20x80s. Thanks for the heads up!

Why does the Steiner 20X80 Binoculars no longer say "Military" on the top? It now just says M20X80.

Just a branding change for 2018.
