See remarks under separate post “Steiner Commander 7×50 XP”,×50-xp/

This is the latest version of the famous Commander, with better AR coatings and a 12% larger field of view (it may currently be the 7×50 with the widest field of view, except for the Nikon WX). Since 2023, a revised version is on the market with a new armour, a central hinge and a field of view reduced to 140m.
