Remarks:

The pocket Terra caused quite a surprise when it came out a few years ago. Traditionally, the “Terra” series of binoculars used to be Zeiss’ entry level line of instruments (see separate posts regarding the 8×42 and 8×32 models), but the 8×25 changed that. Priced distinctly above the cheap competitors and about in the middle between budget binos and premium competitors, it provides a sharp, bright, well corrected image. There were initially some complaints about mechanical issues (focusing too stiff, hinge too loose, etc.), but that had more to do with Zeiss’ quality control than with anything else. Of course, you wouldn’t expect a performance at the level of the Zeiss Victory 8×25 (see separate post), since the Terra is listed at less than half the price of the Victory. Still, Binoculars Today prefers the smallest Terra over some of its more expensive competitors.
