DO YOU KNOW? Every ZEN binocular has gone through rigorous waterproof testing before leaving the factory floor by following the most demanding JIS 7 (Japanese Industrial Standard Level 7). What does that mean? They immerse every binocular into a 5 feet deep water tank for 3min. Only the one passes the test can be released. So, let it rain!

Q. What's the difference between ZEN ED2 and ZEN ED binoculars.

A. The new ZEN ED2 is built upon the original ZEN ED platform by incorporating several advanced technologies on three models ZEN ED2 8x43, 10x43 and 7x36. The backbone of the ZEN ED2, its prism, is significantly enhanced with state of the art dielectric prism coatings to maximize the total light transmission.  The coating was engineered with 40+ layers of nanoscale film with precise thickness control. Unlike metallic prism coating, this dielectric coating offers a superior flat curve, averaging 99% rate of reflectivity throughout the visible spectrum range.  As a result, users are able to enjoy a brighter image with a better balanced color tone.  A proprietary new Speed-Dial  focusing mechanism with 30% faster focus rate was also developed exclusively by Zen-Ray to allow users to better track fast moving objects out in the field. The ZEN ED2 binoculars are designed to be used under the most adverse weather conditions with its Argon noble gas charged waterproof chassis and new built-in CrystalView oil and water repellent coating.
