Remarks:

The range-finding EL-Range – 8×42 or 10×42 – comes in military green or in “shock orange” (the latter cannot get lost even at night, but BINOCULARS TODAY wonders slightly whether any hunter or birder would use the orange version and risk shying away all wildlife) and uses basically the same open-hinge design as the EL Swarovison models. It features the same excellent optics and mechanics as the other EL models from Swarovski (see separate posts), but incorporates state-of-the art laser range finding technology that provides measurements up to well over 1’500m (in BINOCULARS TODAY’S experience clearly more than listed in  the specifications, depending on atmospheric conditions). The EL-Range, in its orange version appropriately named “O-Range”, competes with Leica’s Geovid and Zeiss’ Victory RF rangefinders.
