This tells you how many times an object is magnified when observed through the binoculars.

Objective lens

The diameter of the objective lens will impact how bright, sharp, and comfortable your view is. Generally, bigger is better.

Lens coating

Lens coatings reduce light loss and glare to increase contrast and diminish eyestrain. Coated: one layer on external surfaces only. Fully coated: every surface is coated. Multi-coated: multiple layers on some of the surfaces. Fully multi-coated: multiple layers on every optical surface.

Field of view

The widest dimension of circular viewing area that you can see.

Minimum focus

The nearest distance at which the binoculars will focus on an object.

Relative brightness

A measure of image brightness. The greater the realtive brightness number the better the binoculars will perform in dim light.

Exit pupil

The diameter of the objective (outside) lens divided by the binocular's magnification. It indicates the amount of light that reaches your eye (most noticeable in low light conditions). Higher numbers offer brighter images.

Eye relief

The distance between the eyepiece and your eye while still allowing entire field of view. Long eye relief is good for eyeglass wearers.
