NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA., January 14, 2013 - Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world's leading manufacturer in high performance sports optics, is pleased to introduce TERRA ED, a new line of binoculars that combines the benefits of quality German engineering and design with the performance and features you've come to expect from ZEISS - all at an incredible value.
TERRA ED binoculars offer exceptional visual experiences, packaged in an attractive, functional design. Thanks to SCHOTT ED glass with ZEISS MC multi-coated lenses images are always bright and clear - even in low light conditions when wildlife is more active. Comfortable ergonomics and robust, lightweight and waterproof construction, TERRA ED binoculars are built to handle rugged terrain and harsh conditions. With a stunning 5.25 ft. close focus and a generous wide field of view, you'll never miss a thing. The compact size makes TERRA ED extremely mobile in the field. All TERRA ED binoculars are backed by ZEISS' U.S. limited lifetime transferable warranty.
"We are thrilled to offer with TERRA ED our third ZEISS line of binoculars to the market at a price that puts them within reach of most sportsmen," said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. "Carl Zeiss is the leader in world class premium hunting optics, but we have to be realists when servicing the American outdoorsmen. We are listening to what this market is asking for and delivering with TERRA outstanding optical products at incredibly competitive price points. TERRA ED will bring the ZEISS brand as an additional choice of optics to millions more sportsmen in the U.S."
With its compact and lightweight design, rugged construction, comfortable ergonomics and wide field of view, the 8x42 is the ideal companion for mobile hunters, birders and wildlife observers who demand quality optics for open country observation.
With the 10x42, we have added magnification without adding extra weight. For situations in the field that call for a closer look, such as scoring game or observing the fine details in nature, the 10x42 delivers bright, crisp images, even in low light.
