Sun Optics 8x42 WP Roof Prism Binocular
Key Features
  • Compact BAK4 Roof Prisms
  • Fully Multi-Coated Optics
  • Ultra-Wide 66° Angle of View
  • Nitrogen-Filled, Water and Fogproof
Ideal for making detailed observations at a distance, the Sun Optics 8x42 WP Roof Prism Binocular utilizes BAK4 roof prisms and fully multi-coated optics to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color and improved clarity. This model features an ultra-wide apparent angle of view and a wide exit pupil to help offset the appearance of visible hand-shake common with higher power binoculars. Its larger 42mm objectives, coupled with its exit pupil that completely covers fully-dilated pupils in low-light, enable their use in challenging light such as at dawn and dusk — when many animals are active, or when trying to peer into dense forests with thick canopies.

Ideal for making detailed observations at a distance, the Sun Optics 8x42 WP Roof Prism Binocular utilizes BAK4 roof prisms and fully multi-coated optics to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color and improved clarity. This model features an ultra-wide apparent angle of view and a wide exit pupil to help offset the appearance of visible hand-shake common with higher power binoculars. Its larger 42mm objectives, coupled with its exit pupil that completely covers fully-dilated pupils in low-light, enable their use in challenging light such as at dawn and dusk — when many animals are active, or when trying to peer into dense forests with thick canopies.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight and durable aluminum-alloy chassis that is wrapped in a protective rubber armor. The armoring has a matte finish to reduce glare and helps to provide a slip-resistant grip — especially in cold and wet conditions. Each optical tube is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions. A large rubberized focus wheel makes it easy to manipulate, even when wearing gloves, and twist-up rubber eyecups allow for comfortable use with or without eyewear.
