"Taking over from their less 8x powerful sibling from last year, these Snypex binoculars are truly one of the best mid-sized instruments that I have ever used and as such, I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them to anyone looking for a high-performance instrument for safaris and most other travel adventures.
Achieving an outstanding BBR score of 83%, they got a 9/10 for both the optical components they use and for their overall image quality.”
These high performance, mid-size Snypex binoculars offer the user greater image detail at longer ranges and are an ideal instrument for travel, safaris, hunting ,birds , whale watching and general nature and wildlife observation.
Top specification optical components include APO lenses with ED glass elements, Bak-4 Dach roof prisms with phase correction and dielectric coatings that ensure the best possible views..According to bestbinocularsreview. read complete review
The 10x32 D-ED Binoculars are very lightweight open bridge body protects top quality optics including Apochromatic lenses with ED Glass Lens Elements, fully multi-coated optics.
The 10x32 Binoculars is a compact fog and waterproof binocular with an outstanding close focus of just 3.92 ft. It features Bak-4 prisms with precision crafted ED glass. Fully multi-coated optics and phase correction coatings enable a wide field of view. This 10x32 D-ED ( 9032D-ED ) binocular delivers true-to-life images with startling clarity, color accuracy, and excellent brightness in all environments. All SNYPEX Knight D-ED Binoculars series are protected with a durable armored rubber housing to absorb shocks.
With features like aluminium focus wheels instead of plastic ones and the addition of Dielectric mirror coatings instead of silver one, this new flagship series has a number of improvements on the standard ED's and took what was already an excellent binocular to a whole new level.
Ideal Uses: Because of their smallish size and very low weight, these will make the ideal travel companion, hiking, camping or safari binocular where you still want a very good low light performance.
On top of this if you carry a lot of gear when hunting and don't stay in a small area, a smaller, lighter product like this will make your life a whole lot easier.
Their dimensions and weight also lead them to be a great choice to take along to sporting events.
The very close focus will also really appeal to those who enjoy viewing creatures like butterflies and dragonflies or indeed flowers and plants from closer ranges.
In the past, the Safari trip was often a big-game hunt, but today, safaris are often to observe and photograph wildlife—or hiking and sightseeing, as well.
Snypex improved on the design of our top-tier line to produce this 10x32 Knight D-ED Binocular. we upgraded our eyepiece and objective lens configuration to 5-elements in four groups for both improved optical quality and overall image brightness. Complementing this improvement is the use of fully multi-coated extra low-dispersion glass, and dielectric-coated phase-correcting BAK4 prisms. These technologies work together to produce bright and clear images with accurate color rendition across the entire field of view without distortion. This iteration is made with a powerful 10x magnification and a short close focus distance that allows users to make detailed observations of either distant objects or close subjects, depending on their interests.
The Knight's open-bridge design helps to reduce weight without sacrificing strength, and provides a large surface area to hold, even with the compact housing. Rubber armoring gives protection from drops and impacts while helping to provide a non-slip grip. Designed for durability, the lightweight fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for fogproof performance and makes it submersible. Twist-up eyecups provide a custom-fit eye relief for use with or without eye-wear.
Long eye relief of 17.5 mm and twist-up eyecups - great for eyeglass wearers

What is :Apochromatic Lens (APO)
Here again it is worth expanding on their exact makeup as they go far beyond what you find in your average binocular:
Whilst most binoculars will have a main lens that consist of two elements and are thus called achromat lenses. These are able to bring two wavelengths of light (usually red & blue) into focus in the same plane.
However, Snypex Optics use an Apochromatic lens (APO) design on in their Knight D-ED binoculars. APO lenses commonly have three lens elements and are able to bring three different wavelengths of light (most often red, green & blue) to focus at a common point.
Whilst APO lenses are more expensive to produce, they have the advantage in they are better at correcting both chromatic aberrations and spherical aberration and thus can deliver a much higher resolution image.
ED Glass Elements Added to this, atleast one of the elements within the objective lenses is made from extra low dispersion (ED)glass.
ED glass elements enable improved control of the individual light wavelengths and thus can make lead to a further reduction of chromatic aberrations and thus less color fringing in the final view.
