Combined with the 8x magnification and compact 25mm-diameter objectives, this pocketable binocular also features a close minimum focusing distance of 4.9', making it well-suited for both general and close-viewing applications.

Kowa SV25-8 reviews

8x25 SV25-8 Binocular is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kowa 8x25 SV25-8 I've had these binoculars for 10 days and quite like them . They feel solid and compact, and are easy and quick to focus. The image is bright and sharp out to the edge. I wear eyeglasses and find the eye relief to be adequate, although another couple of mm wouldn't hurt. I like the light weight and don't notice the binoculars while walking, unlike my other pairs. When folded they fit in trouser or jacket pocket (but not most shirt pockets). For the price I highly recommend them, and would purchase them again. I lost the lens caps immediately, but found that 1.25" caps designed for telescope eyepieces seem to fit fine.
