Kowa Genesis 8x33 Binocular

Richard, binocularreviews.org
15 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Excellent close focus I had been using a Vortex Diamondback 8x42. It had good close focus (4.5'), but was noticeably dark at distance and not as precise compared to my beloved Leica 8x42's.

Kowa Genesis 8x33

TC:, binocularreviews.org
10 May 2011
  • Excerpt: These are well designed with an emphasis on quality and function. The body is covered by a rubberized coating that affords good feel in the hands and protection to the lens barrels. They are compact and light enough to carry all day without fuss, but not so small as to be fiddly. They fit well into average hands, and are suited to use with gloves.

Solid glass without the European markup

Willie, B&H Photo
1 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Color fidelity is vivid, with edge to edge being sharp. These binocular's match up with fit and finish of any top grade Swarovski or Leica. Very compact, with quality glass in a sturdy rubber on top of magnesium housing. Waterproof, nitrogen filled, many of the same features of binocs that retail for hundreds more. Highly recommended for compact/light weight binocs for hiking/birding.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Bietet mehr als der Preis vermuten läßt

Peter Schmidt, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Habe ein Exemplar des Kowa Prominar 8x33 mit einem Nikon HG-L sowie einem Zeiss Victory FL verglichen. In punkto chromatische Aberrationen, Bildqualität bei Gegenlicht und Fokussierverhalten schnitt es deutlich besser als das Nikon ab. Außerdem lieferte es von allen drei Testgläsern das hellste und kontrastreichste Bild. Einblickverhalten und Haptik gefielen mir beim Zeiss besser, aber nicht genug um den deutlichen Mehrpreis zu rechtfertigen.
