Hawke Sport Optics 39201 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for performance, with elegance in mind, the 8x42 Sapphire ED Binocular from Hawke is right along with the forerunners in the field. The optics feature exemplary high-performance Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass to deliver crisp, true-color images of breathtaking landscapes, vistas, or cityscapes. With the fully multi-coated optics and high-resolution (Hi-Res) Silver phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, you will get excellent visual transparency of the optical glass and superior clarity, resolution, and contrast of images. The 42mm objectives perform well in most lighting conditions, from an early morning until night. And whether you focus on a close-up or faraway scenery, you can count on the wide 65° apparent angle of view to deliver a sizeable edge-to-edge field. Beyond optical highlights, the binocular provides a convenient center focusing and a diopter ring on the right tube, generous interpupillary range, and a short 6.6' minimum focus distance.

With its ultra-lightweight and durable magnesium housing, you do not have to worry about accidentally exposing the binocular to moisture or even dropping it into a water reservoir because it is nitrogen-filled to be water and fogproof. Its aesthetically-appealing and ergonomic rubber armoring offers a secure hold and a pleasant handling experience. To help you with focusing and correcting for dioptric differences, the oversized focus knob and the diopter ring are knurled and can be easily adjustable even when wearing gloves. To accommodate anyone with a comfortable viewing position, the rubber eyecups feature a twist-out click-stop type. Also included are a strap, lens cloth, carry case, and protective lens caps.

    Hawke Sport Optics 39201 reviews

    8x42 Sapphire ED Binocular (Green) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible after sales customer service Terrible post sale customer service. Great binoculars until the focus wheel came off after 4 months. B&Hphoto was extremely unhelpful and I am only writing this review after numerous attempts at requesting help from them. I was told that I would have to deal with the manufacturer directly to get their lifetime warranty. The manufacturer said B&Hphoto would have to pay for the postage, packaging and insurance. B&Hphoto refused to do this after numerous requests. The cost to me was $100 to send the binoculars to HAWKE, who themselves have been very helpful. Disappointed with B&Hphoto and their after sales customer (non) service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass for the money! Very clear and bright! Size is just right...focus wheel is a little free turning. but thats not too big a deal...not really any better binos than my Zen Ray ED2s, but I think they are just as clear and maybe a smidge brighter...? Leather case is super fine though!
