Dear Folks at Eagle Optics,
I have a pair of Swarovski EL 8.5 x 42 binoculars and I need to get new eye shields asap.
I see you have them for a 10 X 42 El model - will these also fit an 8.5 x 42 model??
Thank you for help !
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.
Can you tell me which model of EL you have-the new Swarovision or the old EL?
The old 8.5x42 EL, the 34008, used to take the threaded, discontinued eye shield that Swarovski made, model #44017, and they were sold individually at the time.
That I know of, those are no longer available for us to order.
You could certainly call Swarovski if you'd like.
They can be reached at 800-426-3089.
The current Swarovision 8.5x42 EL, the 34108, takes this eye shield setup, which attaches via just pulling/fitting over the existing EL eyecup.
This set also comes with a rainguard for over the eyepieces, and will also fit the old EL: http://www.eagleoptics.com/binocular-accessories/swarovski/swarovski-winged-eyecup-rainguard-set-for-el-and-slc-binoculars
