Outfitted with a magnification and objective size that has been a favorite of birdwatchers, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts for years, the Levenhuk 8x42 Karma Binocular utilizes a moderately-low magnification to maintain a wider field of view versus higher-power optics and creates an immersive observational experience. The compact BAK4 roof prisms keeps the optical tubes relatively thin to ensure that the optic fits comfortably in the hands of most users, while fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission for bright and clear high-contrast views with accurate color rendition. Complementing these performance features is a wide exit pupil so that in low-light, such as at dawn or dusk, the user's pupils will be covered when they are fully dilated and views remain full and clear without vignetting; and a long eye relief that reduces eye strain and makes long-duration glassing sessions comfortable.

Its large center focus wheel, right-eye dioptric correction, and twist-up eyecups ensure a clear focus by most users, whether they have perfect vision or wear corrective lenses, or for those who want to observe with sunglasses on. The chassis is wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armor with raised textured palm-pads to add grip security and stability in cold weather — even when wearing gloves. For convenience, Levenhuk includes a tethered one-piece rainguard and stay-on/flip-down objective lens caps are easy to put on and take off without the risk of losing them. These design and optical features make this binocular an ideal choice for hikers and hunters, sightseers and tourists, as well as outdoor enthusiasts and sports spectators.

Optical Performance
  • Moderate 8x magnification
  • 42mm objective lenses boost light-gathering ability versus compact models for improved low-light performance without the bulk of larger objectives
  • Compact roof prism light path
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity and improve contrast and image brightness
  • Highly-reflective silver prism coatings reduce internal light loss to help maintain image brightness and improve contrast
  • 330-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration
  • Large textured center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate even when wearing gloves
  • 56-72mm interpupillary distance adjustment range allows the eyepieces to be adjusted for different size faces
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction enables optical system to be customized to specific eye prescriptions for use without corrective lenses if desired
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Long 18mm eye relief makes long-duration glassing sessions comfortable
  • Wide 5.25mm exit pupil will completely cover pupils when they are fully-dilated in low-light, for clear views without vignetting
