SKYHAWK4.0 - fast. close. sharp!

If you look at nature in detail, you will experience the unique fascination. And this is exactly what we have developed the SkyHawk 4.0 for: To observe nature clearly and sharply at all times. Whether in the garden, in the forest or on the open field, whether in the snow or by the sea, whether at noon or at dusk. The outstanding High-Contrast-Optics deliver razor-sharp images and depict every facet of nature in detail.

With the SkyHawk 4.0, thanks to the innovative distance control system with its 360° focusing wheel, it is just a small hand movement from the brilliant observation of a bird's flight high up in the clouds to a sharply contoured large view of a beetle in the grass directly in front of you.

We have optimised the famous small, big details and s‍et a new standard in ergonomics and handling with the new design. This makes even long-term observations a comfortable experience and the new SkyHawk strap attachment offers a universal fastening option for every application need.

The SkyHawk package is rounded off by a wide range of accessories, including a high-quality bag, rain cover and lens caps, as well as a soft padded neoprene carrying strap for fatigue-free carrying, even during long hikes.

The SkyHawk series offers a unique haptic experience and captivates with its legendary Steiner ruggedness.
