Product Overview

Kowa Genesis 8.5x44 Prominar XD

Kowa's Genesis series utilizes Kowa XD (Extra Low Dispersion glass) lenses, all with the finest lens and prism coatings Japanese technology has to offer. Together, they reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and provide high-contrast views. Their flagship Genesis 8.5x44 offers a 366’ field of view, 5.5’ close focus, locking diopter adjustment, comfortable multistep twist up eyecups all in a sturdy waterproof magnesium alloy body. A tad over two pounds however, when you look through them you may forget anything but the view. Compare these to any glass in the $1000 range (or above).
