GPO Passion 10x56 Binoculars + Gift
Price Match Promise
PASSION 10x56mm binoculars use the same coatings as the PASSION ED models, but do not have ED lenses.
The reason is that they are specialized for low-light use and the main benefit of ED glass is to reduce chromatic aberrations (color fringing), which is negated in the dark.
GPO do not make a 10x56 model with ED glass
GPO PASSION™ binoculars offer the perfect entry into the world of high-quality observation optics at an unbeatable price-performance ratio. The sleek and ergonomic design has been combined with the use of high quality materials. The entire housing is made of pure magnesium. Thanks to multi-layer coatings and adapted optics, they offer a wide field of view, high edge-to-edge sharpness and transmission values as well as a shortened close focus. Their robustness and optical performance make them unique performers in their class.
Build from a very light and durable magnesium housing, our PASSION ™ 8x/10x 56mm models are our offering aimed specifically at those who demand excellent lowlight performance at a reasonable price.
The Abbe-König prism, the superior imaging performance in transmission (91%) and contrast by large exit pupils allow a pleasant and relaxed observation even after dawn.

Very pleased with this binocular the image quality is in my opinion bright, sharp, and excellent across the whole field of view, no need to consider a more expensive product.
With Stealth Birding providing a great service thank you.
I am delighted with the quality of image and there FOV, and the amount of light they allow when the conditions are not the most favourable. I do admit they are a little heavy, this may be the reason no thumb indents on the casing, but I found you have to adjust how you hold them, by moving your hands forward toward the heavier part of the binoculars nearer the objective lenses. Making this adjustment allowed me to glass a lot longer between breaks. So for me this was the only small negative, that’s why only 4 stars. I hope in time this will diminish as I get a lot more accustomed to them. Besides that, I am a very happy man.
