Kowa's BD42 line of premium quality binoculars are available in two power or color choices to suit your desires, and all of them preserve the incredibly high degree of quality for which the Kowa name has become synonymous. They are easily handled thanks to the shape of their bridge, and the helicoid eyecups make them simple to share between those who wear glasses and those who do not. These robust companions are perfect for a serious birder, with the 10x42 model being a bit less bright and a bit more powerful for those that prefer a more dramatic image.

      Comments about Kowa 10x42 BD42-10B Binocular (Green):

      I bought these for bird watching and they are excellent value for money. Have a good feel- nice indent for putting the thumbs, good clear light for a 10x42 and have close focus i.e to 2 metres. However the odd thing is that "clockwise" rotation brings closer objects in focus - unlike my other bins and scope. Not sure if this is common. A friend says they are as good as his Leica's.
