Representing the smallest aperture in the Genesis family, the Kowa 8x22 Genesis 22 PROMINAR XD Binocular provides the performance required for birding, hunting, or sightseeing without the bulk of mid and full-sized models. To improve image quality and offset the light gathering limitations of the small objectives are complementary technologies that include the use of PROMINAR extra low-dispersion glass, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, highly reflective C3 and phase-correction prism coatings that work together to produce crisp, clear, and bright high-contrast images with accurate color rendition. Added to this performance is a short close-focus distance, a wide apparent angle of view and a long eye relief, which produce an immersive observational experience for any user.

Designed for extensive outdoor use, the lightweight magnesium alloy chassis is wrapped in a protective rubber armor with a textured palm-pads and bridge to provide a slip-resistant grip. To ensure a compact and highly-packable form-factor, Kowa utilizes Schmidt-Pechan prisms that allow for slimmer optical tubes but deliver the performance of conventional roof prisms. Added to this are dual hinges that enable the barrels to fold tightly under the bridge so when they are not in use, the Genesis 22 take up as little room as possible. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature or humidity changes.

Optical Performance
  • 8x magnification
  • 22mm objective lenses
  • Compact Schmidt-Pechan roof prism optical path
  • PROMINAR XD extra low-dispersion glass reduces chromatic aberration, which causes halos and fringing, for improved color rendition and contrast
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal light diffraction to improve clarity and contrast
  • C3 prism coatings improve internal light transmission to higher than 99% across the entire visible spectrum to improve color rendition, clarity, and contrast
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view
  • 393' field of view at 1000 yards
  • Short 5' close focus distance
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge/dual-hinge configuration
  • Textured center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate, even when wearing gloves
  • Locking center dioptric correction
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use, and correct eye relief, with or without eyewear
  • Generous 15mm eye relief
  • 2.75mm exit pupil
