  • Conclusion: Once again it is proven that if a given manufacturer has rich tradition when it comes to the optics production and the factories, producing its equipment, are near, it can demand a lot and have good results. In the case of Kowa it resulted in a polished-up, sophisticated product which is difficult to flaw. Very good optical properties, stylish and solid housing - those things make you keen on buying.
  • Pros: very solid and stylish casing,, high quality of prisms and coatings,, low distortion,, excellent coma correction,, slight astigmatism,, chromatic aberration quite well-controlled,, low brightness loss at the edge of the field,, sharp image already from 1.7 metres,, good blackening inside.
  • Cons: truncated pupils,, short guarantee period for this price class,, the image at the edge of the field could have been sharper.
