Kowa Genesis 8x33

  • Conclusion: Let me start in a bit subjective way. Personally I like Kowa binoculars. They are always solidly made and stylishly designed – holding them in your hands and using them is a pleasure. It is true not only for the high-end Genesis series but also the lower BD series as well. What’s more, these binoculars manage to avoid many serious optics slip-ups so their purchase can be recommended practically on spec. It would be difficult not to be pleased with such a product.
  • Cons: casing is solid but relatively light and handy at the same time,, very good transmission,, good whiteness rendition,, well-corrected chromatic aberration,, very low astigmatism,, slight coma,, well-corrected distortion,, wide field of view,, good quality of prisms and coatings., truncated exit pupils,, the image at the edge of the field could have been sharper,, not very sensible practice of putting ad slogans inside the binoculars’ inner tube,, short guarantee period...
