The next time you’re bent on catching a glimpse of that slippery Bohemian Waxwing or Yellow-billed Cuckoo, the one thing you won’t have to worry about is focusing the lenses of your binoculars. That’s because Steiner, the German optical-design house, has made bird-watching and other wilderness activities requiring keen vision a whole lot simpler with its new auto-focusing Wildlife Pro Ultra-Sharp 8x30 binoculars. Covered in rubberized armor and equipped with highlight-transmission lenses that, in a one-time maneuver, separately adjust for right- and left-eye conditions, the binoculars are specifically made to bring even the fastest-flying fowl and other elusive creatures into sharp focus. $399,
