Legendary Predator C5 Binocular Line Expanded

New 8x56 and 10x56 join the popular Steiner Predator C5 line.

Moorestown, NJ — Designed for hunters and nature observers, the Predator C5 binocular line has expanded its offerings to include two new binoculars to this popular line. A new 8x56 and 10x56 offer larger objective lenses for even better light gathering, higher resolution and greater detail.

Like the 10x42 and 12x42 Predator C5s, the two new models utilize the unique lens coating that help you spot hidden game by blocking the colors of haze and foliage and enhancing the visibility of browns, reds and other wildlife colors. With the larger objective on the 8x and 10x, viewing times will be extended and images will be brighter and clearer than ever.


The popular design of the Predator C5 uses a rigid polycarbonate chassis that is both durable and waterproof. The ergonomic styling makes this binocular easy to use and focus with gloves in any weather condition. It is nitrogen-purged and comes equipped with a padded travel case, rain guards or the oculars and the attached objective lens caps. A comfortably padded neck strap makes viewing for extended periods very enjoyable.


The new larger objective Predator C5 binoculars will be available at retailers nationwide January 2010. Suggested retail price for the 8x56 is $949 and the 10x56 is $999.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been an acknowledged leader in the manufacturing of quality binoculars since 1947. In addition to the outdoor, hunting and marine markets, Steiner provides products to military and law enforcement worldwide. Allied forces around the world, including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies, have made Steiner their binocular of choice.
