What is the effect of [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/steiner-binoculars.html]Steiner[/link]'s Predator hunting lens coatings when used for general viewing such as distant scenery? What is the effect on atmospheric haze? Are Predator good for all-around viewing?

Hi

You could certainly use the predators for that application. Color rendition will be slightly biased toward the red and browns, but not enough to prevent you from using them on scenery and other general uses. About the only application I would hesitate to use the Predator would be for birdwatching where color rendition is important, but, then, Steiner has other binoculars designed for that.
