My wife has a Eagle Optics NEW Ranger ED 8x32 Binocular that she loves! It will focus at subjects about 4 ft away. I am interested in a Eagle Optics NEW Ranger ED 10x42 Binocular for my personal use. How far from a subject, like a butterfly, must you be to get a clear focus with the 10x42's?
With any 42mm binocular, your close focus will be limited to about 5’, which is what it is with the 10x42 Ranger. This is due to the longer barrels on a 42mm binocular. If you want to get closer than 5’, then your options will be with 32mm binoculars.
If you have any other questions, just let me know.
