Take higher performance into the field. TERRA Binoculars combine SCHOTT ED glass (TERRA ED 32+42) with ZEISS MC coating for pure, bright and vivid images, even in low light. With an awesome close focus and a wide-angle field of view, you’ll never miss a thing. And their extremely compact size aids mobility in the field.

With its compact and lightweight design, rugged construction, comfortable ergonomics and wide field of view, the 8x42 is the ideal companion for birders and observers who demand quality optics for open country observation. With a stunning 5.25 ft close focus and a generous wide field of view, you’ll never miss a thing.

The TERRA ED 8x42 is available in black and black/gray.

Brilliant, razor-sharp images

TERRA ED binoculars combine optical precision and hydrophoic multi-coating to deliver stunning optical performance in all conditions. This state-of-the-art coating ensures beautiful, crystal clear images, even in low light situations.

Precision at close quarters

Active outdoor lifestyles demand compact, durable and versatile binoculars. The ZEISS TERRA ED delivers razor-sharp images of far-away objects. But it can also observe nature up close with great precision. With a generous wide field of view and a close focus distance of just 5.25 ft (TERRA ED 32+42) or 6.23 ft (TERRA ED Pocket), the TERRA ED is ideal for nature observation, whether the object is far across the field or in the tree just above you.

Compact, light and robust

The ZEISS TERRA ED family is lightweight and trail-tough so it packs easily and stands up to rugged terrain. Easy-grip surfaces let you grab and lift the binoculars quickly to your eye. Smooth focus and ergonomically correct eyecups make viewing comfortable and natural. At just 10.9 ounces, the ZEISS TERRA ED Pocket is the lightest weight model in its class.

Wide fields of view

With generous fields of view for their magnification, you can quickly pick out individual birds and wildlife from large groups and seek out hidden animals in clumps of bushes.

Optimal ergonomics

Comfortable observation is not just a matter of lenses. Ergonomics plays a major role, too – The TERRA ED shares the ZEISS binocular family's innovative modern design. The comfortable focus system with the large focussing wheel ensures easy handling, optimum grip and precise focussing even wearing gloves. The eyecups round off its ergonomic perfection. Slightly slanted, they are carefully aligned to aid observational comfort.
