Safari Ultrasharp 10x42 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner Safari 10x42 hunting optic. I own one other pair of Steiner binoculars which I like very much. I wanted a quality pair of larger binoculars but live on a limited budget. I bought the Safari model 10x42 and I am pleased with them. I chose Steiner because of their reputation and warranty. I think I will get many years of use from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Products and Support This is a top notch company that stands behind their products. I own 2 pair of Steiner binoculars and both perform flawlessly. My 10x26 binoculars developed an issue and Steiner honored the warranty replacement as promised. Amazing customer service. I also own a couple of high quality Burris scopes that are unbeatable for the money. This is the business model that builds loyalty to a brand. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Versatile I bought a pair of these for a safari. The day typically went from dawn to dusk. Often quite dusty conditions as well. They worked great in both low and bright light. The image clarity was terrific and focused easily. There are also compact and light enough to use all day. I also use them on canoe trips and to watch live sports. Highly recommend these.
