      Comments about Kowa YF 6x30 Binocular (Black):

      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. the only downside to this binocular is that the eyecups don't screw out far enough to rest against my face

      Comments about Kowa YF 6x30 Binocular (Black):

      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.

      They are well made, light, and compact. I found this little bino easy and comfortable to handle, although my hands are probably bigger than it was built for. The focus wheel grip is a little unusual, but it didn't bother me at all. The objective covers also are not that great and would be easy to lose, I just leave them in the box. There is plenty of eye relief and the view is surprisingly sharp, bright and contrasty with a neutral balance. Together with the light weight this makes for easy extended viewing.

      I took these everywhere on holiday - from the Top of the Rock to Acadia - using them for general viewing and wildlife watching and couldn't be happier.
