KOWA Genesis 8x33 Prominar XD Binoculars, Green (GN33-8)

Vendor: Kowa



KOWA Genesis 8x33 Prominar XD Binoculars, Green (GN33-8) with Prominar XD Lens are the newest Kowa binoculars to use the PROMINAR technology, utilizing four XD lenses. These extra-low dispersion glasses were developed for Kowa's incredible TSN-880/770 series of spotting scopes, and such use in a binocular is extremely rare to say the least. This advanced technology creates a bright image with high contrast and remarkable color reproduction than can not be duplicated by a normal achromatic lens.

Kowa Genesis Series Binoculars use a costly Schmidt-Pechan roof prism, which is phase coated and treated with their proprietary C3 coating technology, which allows higher transmissivity and reflectivity than any aluminum, mirror, or silver-based prism backing system.

The Genesis 8x33 Prominar XD Binoculars features a light, extremely rugged magnesium frame that's the foundation of its waterproof and fogproof body. The metal-based, rubber-wrapped focusing dial is beautifully precise, doing speedy work in reaching its impressive shortest distance of just under 1.5m.

Also, Kowa Genesis Binoculars makes for a great tool for butterfly observation. The rubber armored contours fall perfectly to hand, with an upper bridge that fits your fingertips as comfy as you please.
