They incorporate famous SCHOTT ED glass, with multi-coated lenses that guarantee brilliant images down to the very last detail - and are protected with hydrophic lens coating. The Terra ED binoculars are waterproof and nitrogen-filled, making them rough and ready. Terra ED binoculars are constructed with a fiberglass frame. They serve as the perfect entry into the world of ZEISS.  The Terra ED binoculars are available in four models - 8x32, 8x42, 10x32 & 10x42 and available in Black or Gray.  The 8x42 and 10x42 models are also available in Green.

A bright image, outstanding resolution of details and comfortable viewing characteristics. In combination with optimum ease of handling, these perfectly describe the outstanding properties of the Terra ED 8x42 and 10x42.


88% Light Transmission

SCHOTT ED glass with a hydrophobic multi-coating provides optical clarity and precision in all situations. 

Comfortable, fast focusing

The large, smooth and easy-to-grip focus wheel makes focusing particularly easy and, most of all, quick on a ZEISS Terra ED. You'll notice the advantages of Terra ED binoculars as soon as you pick them up: your index finger automatically lands on the focusing wheel. You'll never again need to think about how you hold the binoculars when something exciting suddenly happens in front of you. In next to no time, you'll have it sharply in focus. 

ZEISS T* Coating

ZEISS T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images­­ which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.

Compact, light and robust

With its its waterproof casing reinforced with glass fibers, the ZEISS Terra ED satisfies the high standards of nature lovers. The construction is compact, light and robust. Light-weight, easy to fit into any bag and nearly indestructible, the ZEISS Terra ED is the perfect companion. 

A clear view, whatever the weather

There are always exciting things to be seen in the world of nature – even in wet weather. This is why ZEISS developed LotuTec®. A coating for the lenses of binoculars and spotting scopes that enables a clear and unhindered view in all weather conditions.
