Excerpt: I was looking into a second pair of birding binoculars because my partner is a petite person, with rather close-set eyes. The minimum interpupillary setting on my Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars is just a little too wide for her face and eyes.
Excerpt: after hearing good things about this binocular I decided to give it a go and the first thing that came to mind is how good optically the view is. bright, clear and a wide field of view this compares very close to my kowa bd 8x32.
Excerpt: I bought this in-store for general viewing on holiday. I was initially looking for the Vortex Raptor 6.5x32, which was not in stock. The man in the shop showed me the Meopro 6.5x32 as well, before finding out the Kowa. Although it is not as finely made it gives an excellent view for much less money.
Pros: Compact, Ergonomics, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I wanted a 6X inexpensive knock-around bino mainly to leave in the boat, and intended to buy either the Leupold Yosemite 6x30 or possibly the Vortex 6.5x32 porro binos . When I saw that Kowa had introduced the YF 6x30 , I decided to take a chance, as I've been impressed with whatever Kowa optics...
Summary: Bright, sharp, lightweight, and very smart. If you think porro-prism designs look old-fashioned you should think again, these look good and show just why a good porro-prism is such better value than roof-prism.
Summary: Excellent value for money. The lenses are really very good for this price range. They cut corners with the ill fitting caps and cheap strap. But you can replace these and you've got a pair of binoculars you might pay at least double this price for.
Summary: I bought these for my husband's birthday and he was thrilled with them. The magnification is great and they were crystal clear. I would have given them 5 stars but for one little niggle which is that the lens caps come off far too easily and you could be in danger of losing them.
Summary: Exellent buy. Light, wide field of view cristal, clear lenses, very little image tremour due to the 6x. As for this nonsence about loose lense covers, mine are fine and flip off with a slight touch, When in use the covers are in the well padded case, eventually I discarded them as I am not aware of...
Summary: I must say first, I'm no expert on binoculars! I needed a pair primarily for bird watching while out walking. I thought about getting compacts but decided this size might be easier to use while still being lightweight. They're very good.
Summary: I bought these binocs without having seen a review on them.I had previously checked reviews for others, but i settled on the kowas and i certainly have made a very good purchase. Not only are they strongly made,and waterproof,they are also very compact.They provide great viewing,either long range,or...
