How does it compare to the predator 8 x 42?

I have two questions, actually. I'd like to know what the eye relief is for the Steiner XC 8x32 binoculars AND I'd also like to know whether the eye guards/flaps/whatever you call them fold down. Thanks!

Asked by: Donna
The eye relief is approximately 16mm, and the eyecups are of the twist-up variety to accommodate different users. The eyecup wings do fold down to accomodate those wearing eyeglasses

My eyecups and objective lens covers were damaged. I don't see this model listed on the parts list pull down menu. Are they interchangeable with eye cups from another model?
