This week we are providing a different angle in our Gear section by sharing a list of optics manufacturers that provide remarkable binoculars for birders. This list provides a variety of popular models of birding binoculars that offer varied features and different price ranges, but all are roof-prism models – the preferred twin tube model used by birders around the world. Within this list you will find a number of binocular models from each company, along with a link to each product via the brand’s website so each company can tell their own story about their exceptional products.
We recommend using full-sized binocular models with 8x magnification and wide 42mm objective lenses for birding, or an equivalent of an 8x42 model. There are a variety of quality ranges and price ranges among the models listed below, so enjoy exploring the diversity of binoculars on the market for birders. All these optics companies also offer quality spotting scopes, just in case you’re looking interested in scoping them out too.
