PASSION™ HD products represent the absolute premium class from GPO. HD optics design combined with state-of-the-art multi-layer coatings creates optical excellence in transmission, field of view, edge-to-edge sharpness, close focus and color rendition. Thanks to our PASSIONdrop™ water-repellent coating, all optics are dirt and water resistant. The innovative micro bridge offers high quality and a very ergonomic design. The magnesium housing, coated magnesium bridge and aluminum rotating eyecups offer maximum robustness with minimum weight.
The diopter adjustment has been integrated into the central focusing wheel to ensure comfortable handling. If you do not want to compromise on the quality of your binoculars and are looking for an extremely fair price-performance ratio, you will find it here.
The models of the PASSION 8,5x/10x and 12,5×50 series have a magnesium body to offer you the best possible materials. The rotating eyecups are made of solid aluminum to ensure robustness and precise adjustment. All in all, you get top class binoculars at an unbeatable price-performance ratio.
Worth mentioning is the balance that also the high-magnification binoculars 10x and 12.5×50 have. Due to the optimized balance, the image unsteadiness has been reduced to a maximum. You will not notice that you are using a 12.5x magnification.
