  • Excerpt: How can it get better than this? I have two mid-range binoculars that I use for backyard birdwatching: Nikon Monarch 3's and MINOX BL's. Both very nice.

Kowa Genesis 8.5x44 Binocular

  • Excerpt: Are these the best kept secret in birdwatching? I spent six months deciding how to upgrade from my Atlas Optics Intrepid ED 8x42 Binocular . It had served me well,  but was an entry binocular to bird watching--that way, if I didn't stick with birdwatching as a hobby, I was only out a little money.

Just as it should be

  • Excerpt: I've used these for birdwatching from the arctic circle to the circle of capricorn. And they work perfectly in low temperatures and in the moisture of the rainforest. Image quality is perhas slightly superior to that of the old Leica Trinovid 8x42, at least equal. Great in low light. Yes they are heavy, but I consider that a plus. The image is more stable even without a finnstick. And if you have a finnstick with you weight is no problem. They are sturdy and reliable.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
