Medium-range binoculars don’t have a single magnification number to best fit all needs and purposes. With magnification ranging from 8x to 12x, distances at hundreds of feet away can still be seen with excellent clarity.
Magnification under 10x is more ideal for those with a shakier hand who have difficulty stabilizing the viewfinder, as the greater the magnification, the more sensitive the lens is to movement. However, if you’re looking for a pair of binoculars for long and medium ranges, the 12x is a great distance to work for both distances.
Additionally, the more your magnification increases, the more your field of view is decreased. If you want to have a broader range of vision, avoid going with a magnification higher than 10x or 12x.
Medium-range binoculars are the most common range because they are also the most versatile to use. Uses for medium-range binoculars include watching nature, catching sporting events, hunting wild animals at mid-range, or hiking or camping adventures. They are an excellent standard for military or law enforcement personnel as well.
One of the best binoculars for medium-range distances is the Prime 8x42. It has an 8x magnification as well as a 42mm objective lens, EXO barrier to prevent water, dust or debris from building up on the lens, a waterproof design and construct that keeps it protected in the rain or foul weather, and it comes with our lifetime warranty. The set even comes with lens caps attached to the ends for added protection when not in use.
