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.

Malmesbury GB Not much, very busy
The stabilisation is very good as I use them to watch polo, fast moving and quick turns with out loosing focus with a good field of view. Much easier than standard field glasses with the same magnification. Very Good
None, well made easy to use

Perfect for people with unsteady hands and a brilliant clear image
A bit heavy but worth it for the image quality in all conditions

Isle of Wight GB Professional photographer for fifty
The IS feature is really fantastic and makes a huge difference regardless of subject and distance. A look at the night sky will confim any doubts sceptics might have as instead of stars bouncing about they are stable and can be inspected.
Main thing is that there is some chromatic abbereration which if one is being picky is a bit of a niggle but as otherwise they are so good I'm learning to live it.

To overcome the lack of protection on the objectives I've bought a couple of 52mm UV filters and snap on lens caps.

The two year guarantee is far too short for such an item IMO

Workington GB
The image stabilising is the best bit for me which influenced my choice as I have a condition called Parkinson's which has left me with a tremor in my left arm.
This meant that ordinary binoculars were totally out of the question.
In use switching on the IS transforms their use for me.
Image lens caps are fiddly and not a very good fit. This was overcome by fitting uv filters and leaving off the caps.
