The Vanguard Endeavor ED are lower-powered binoculars with a 10x magnification. Along with a 114m field of view, this Vanguard model is best suited for faster-paced action and outdoor activities. They have one of the largest objective lens diameter of the binoculars we reviewed, so they’ll perform better in low- and poor-light surroundings.
Pros: Testers noted that the Vanguard Endeavor ED were easy to operate and to focus. A wider objective lens of 42mm brings in a good amount light for better viewing in low-lit situations, and a close minimum distance of 2.5m allows you to see fine details in birds, plants and insects. A weight of nearly 24oz is average, and these binoculars are tripod compatible as well.
Cons: Some Active Junky testers felt images were slightly blurry around the outside.
Bottom Line: Although testers found them easy to use, relatively less crisp images make these Vanguard binoculars a less attractive choice than similarly priced models.
Best for: Lower-light surroundings and close-up magnification of minute details
