Apresys Optics H2008 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for performance and portability, the Apresys Optics 8x20 H2008 ED Binocular is engineered with extra low-dispersion (ED) glass, high-density phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, and broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics. These features work together to off-set the relatively small objectives and produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity and limited distortion across its entire field of view. Its dual-hinge bridge configuration not only allows the optical tubes to fold tightly together for a very compact form-factor when not in-use, but also enables those with narrow faces — like children — to comfortably use the binocular.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight and impact-resistant composite chassis that is wrapped in a slip-resistant rubber armor. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Finally, its low-profile center focusing wheel, ±3 dioptric correction, and twist-up eyecups enable precise focusing and eye relief for just about any user.

Optical Performance
  • 8x magnification
  • 20mm objective lenses
  • High-density BAK-4 roof prisms
  • Extra low-dispersion glass elements eliminate spherical and chromatic aberrations to produce accurate colors with improved contrast and resolution without distortion across the entire field of view
  • Phase-corrected prisms limit internal light diffraction to improve contrast and clarity
  • Broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum, and improves contrast and image brightness
  • 358' field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Textured low-profile center focusing wheel
  • Closed-bridge/dual-hinge configuration

    Apresys Optics H2008 reviews

    8x20 H2008 ED Binocular is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great glass for the money I took a chance on these (there were no reviews yet that i could find) and i'm glad i did. The optics offer an amazingly vivid view. I'm unfamiliar with this company and it appears to me that they have designed this binocular around the very fine Nikon Premier 8x20 (a $500 model). Both are compact, roof prism units employing excellent glass and which have their focus knobs located at the objective lens end of the bridge. This arrangement seems quite comfortable to me, given that the overall size of these is so small. Unlike the Nikons however, on these the focus knob is much smoother to operate when you use 2 fingers - one above and one below the knob. I prefer to be able to focus with just one finger resting on the top but you get used to it. Quality control issues concern me. I had to order 2 pairs of these because the first one had an objective lens o-ring that was deformed. It was immediately apparent to me upon examining the binos. How could the company have overlooked it (a stamp on the paperwork assured me they had indeed passed a quality control check). This brings me to the other issue i'm concerned about - the warranty. Apresys offers a 1 year warranty. It seems that most of the more established (and often "big name") companies offer 25 years...or even lifetime on this type of sport optic. So i bought the 2 year Square Trade extended warranty from B&H in hopes that if there are problems with the binos they will surface before that time. Don't get me wrong, i really do like these very much. And having done a fair amount of research online i don't think you can get better performance for this price!!! The image center is probably as sharp as the Nikon Premiers though the edges seem to loose a bit of that sharpness (just something i'm aware of at times when using these...but not obtrusive). It's a real pleasure to use these. Hope this helps!
