I am looking for binoculars that I can use for both hunting and nature/wildlife viewing. I like the XC and Predator models, but which would be more diverse? Or would you recommend a different model?

Asked by: Clarkh2
The XC would be more versatile as a multipurpose binocular, as the Predator is specialized towards hunting. The Predator's unique Color-Adjusted Transmission coatings gives colors associated with game much more contrast to the typical shades of underbrush and terrain. This color manipulation would affect bright colors that a nature enthusiast or birdwatcher may be interested in.

do they have tacticle reticle with crosshairs? i am looking for one that does not have this.

Asked by: Susan
The only roof prism binoculars that possess a reticle are the #6508 Tactical 10x42r. *All* other roof-prism models, such as this pair of XC's, have no reticle in them.

Does Steiner make binoculars that are self adjusting?

Asked by: bad knee
We do not. The closest to self adjusting would be the Sport Auto Focus feature available on our porro prism models.
