Professional lens quality... for binoculars. 

Professional power

The 10x42L IS WP binoculars are the first from Canon to be engraved with the hallowed red L-series ring: a mark until now reserved for Canon's finest professional photographic lenses; the pinnacle of Canon's 60 year heritage in precision optics design and manufacture.

Raising optical performance standards, the binoculars feature 2 Ultra-low Dispersion glass (UD) lens elements on each side. Developed by Canon, these elements are effective in eliminating chromatic aberration - the rainbow-like distortion that affects lesser quality binoculars. The result is super bright, high contrast, 10x magnification viewing clarity.

Stay steady

To suppress vibrations caused by viewing hand-held, on moving vehicles or boats, the 10x42L IS WP binoculars include Canon's Vari-Angle Prism (VAP) Image Stabilizer (IS). Tiny gyros detect the slightest movements, while a microprocessor controls a special prism to correct the refraction angle of incoming light.


Designed to survive the toughest outdoor conditions, the 10x42L IS WP binoculars are fully waterproof. The design incorporates a distinctive easy-grip for wet conditions, and a robust rubber coating to withstand all your adventures. 


To prevent fogging on internal lens elements caused by the ingress of moisture, all exterior surfaces are treated with a special metallic coating. This works in concert with special O-rings and use of waterproof adhesives on all external contact points to prevent water molecules permeating the outside casing.

Precision optics

All the lens element surfaces are treated with Canon's Super Spectra coatings. These ensure vivid high contrast images with accurate colour balance by eliminating unwanted internal reflections that cause 'ghosting' (secondary images) and 'flare' (low contrast, washed out images). The exceptionally large 4.2mm exit pupil allows a bright field of view in low light conditions.


Every aspect of the 10x42L IS WP binoculars is designed around viewing comfort. A wide 65° angle of view gets plenty of horizon into view, while a 16mm Long Eye Relief minimises vignetting (or the 'tunnel effect') that can affect prescription glasses wearers. A correction lock prevents unintentional dioptric correction errors, and the extending eye-cups can be rotated for customised fitting.

Birmingham GB Retired scientist
The image quality is stunning. Being slightly heavy, they are not too difficult to keep still, but the image stabilisation takes out any shake - the effect is amazing. They are terrific for general use, bird watching, star-gazing, etc.
Like many people before me, I find the lens covers and eyepiece covers really rather inadequate for a piece of kit this expensive. They are fiddly to use and easily become dislodged.

Limited opportunities to trial during CV-19 lockdown but have been great so far for bird watching and astronomy - the excellent image quality and detail is revealed as soon as the IS kicks in.

My primary purpose it to use for sailing and from what I've seen so far the IS will make spotting nav marks much simpler by day and night.

Any product manual that tells you to soak your expensive binos in fresh water to clean gives you reassurance about the waterproofing and build quality.

Lighter than expected and the wide neoprene strap has been comfortable so I don't think I need to bother adding a shoulder harness as I'd planned.
The long reported niggles are still there and Canon really should have addressed these in an expensive but otherwise impressive product:

- the front lens cap is just poor and should have been redesigned long ago so I've abandoned for normal use and applied the usual fix of a pair of permanent attached 52mm lens protecting filters

- the dioptre adjustment lock ring on the RH eyepiece is inadequate so the adjustment is highly prone to being moved accidentally, I've never had this problem on any other centre focussed bins

- the carry case is very snug and not really room for the binocular strap to fit inside without being folded and creased which will probably shorten its life

- hoping not to be visited by the sticky rubber coating issue in 3-4 years time so will be careful aout cleaning, avoiding sun cream etc
