See remarks under separate post “Steiner Commander 7×50 XP”,×50-xp/
This model with compass has the same specifications as the 7×50 XP, but displays an analog compass (which can be illuminated at night) in the right tube. Due to this, the lower part of the image in the right eye is somewhat obstructed by the compass. Otherwise, this version of the Commander has the same good performance as the model without compass.
