The Kowa Genesis XD DCF 8×33 binoculars are one of the best 33mm binoculars on the market. With an excellent field of view and class leading close focus distance of 1.5m this model is a superb all round performer. The build quality is to the high standard you would expect from a premium Japanese product, featuring Kowa’s XD lenses, C-3 coated and phase-coated prisms, all surface multi coated lenses and a light but durable magnesium alloy body. All this technology is unobtrusively packed into an ergonomic and subtly stylish green rubber armoured body, with high quality multi-position twist-up eyecups, making them comfortable even for glasses wearers.
Phase coated BAK4 and SK15 roof prisms ensure a wide field of view, edge-to-edge sharpness and minimal loss of light. This combined with Kowa’s C-Coating makes for a stunning and truly premium viewing experience. Four XD lenses are utilised to reduce chromatic aberration, provide an exceptionally bright image and offer impressive colour reproduction. As a result, images are as true to life as they can be. The incredible 1.5m close focus makes the Kowa Genesis XD DCF 8×33 Binoculars ideal for viewing insects and butterflies as well as birds and mammals. Filters can be attached to the objective lenses adding a layer of customisation to the XD DCF, so you can achieve the types of images you want.
