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 all the benefits of quality German engineering and design with all the performance and features you’ve come to expect from ZEISS.

TERRA ED binoculars offer best in class image quality thanks to ED glass with ZEISS MC coating objectives. This combination provides superior color correction and will minimize color fringing for pure, bright and vivid colors, even in low light conditions. And, with a 5.25 ft. close focus and a wide-angle field of view; you’ll always be impressed with the image the TERRA ED brings to your eyes. Plus, the compact size of this product makes TERRA ED extremely mobile for field use and all are completely backed by ZEISS’ leading U.S. warranty.

“We are thrilled to offer our third ZEISS series 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 majority of American hunters. Most sportsmen simply have a fixed budget for their hobby, so we have used our technology and manufacturing experience to produce outstanding TERRA ED 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 8×42 ED is the ideal companion for mobile hunters, birders and observers who demand quality optics for open country observation.

With the 10×42, we have added magnification for situations in the field that call for a closer look, such as scoring game or observing the fine details of birds. The 10×42 delivers bright, crisp images, even in low light.
