Kowa SV32-8 overview

  • 1Description

The SV 8x32 Binocular (Black) from Kowa Sporting Optics has a traditional roof prism design offering enhanced three-dimensional imaging, less light loss, and generally sharper images. Full multi-coated lenses ensure crisp, clear images with maximum brightness while the Kowa KR coating inhibits reflections and increases resolution. Phase coating adjusts the color spectrum so that color fringing is eliminated and true color transmitted. These optical enhancements were engineered into the binocular without sacrificing the nitrogen-filled waterproofing and fogproofing. A stylish and smooth housing with rounded curving edges and strategically placed handholds make this binocular a visually pleasing item both to look through and at. Twist-up eyecups customize the viewing experience for personal preference with or without eyeglasses or sunglasses. Rubber armoring provides a secure and comfortable grip, as well as added shock resistance. This binocular is an economic answer to possession of one that is feature filled but costly.

Wide AAoV of 62.2°
A Relative Brightness of 16 and a Twilight Factor of 16 as well
Nitrogen filled waterproof and fogproof ensures all-weather performance
Rubber armoring provides a secure and comfortable grip, as well as added shock-resistance
Highly reflective Kowa KR coating minimizes light loss and produces a clear and sharp image

Kowa SV32-8 reviews

SV 8x32 Binocular (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No flaws. Every advertised feature functions as it should function. Doing the flashlight test, the exit pupil is nice and round, no spurious light splashing around (some other brands, even at double the price, had messy exit pupils and lots of light projected outside the exit pupil). The baffling inside looks good, everything is black and clean. The tension in the hinge and in the focus wheel is just right. Not too loose, not too tight. The depth of field is deep enough that the focus point does not come and go too quickly. The travel in the focus wheel is perfect for me. Don't have to push it or pull it too far to get from closest focus to the horizon. The images are as bright and clean as I would expect for a multi-coated, phase coated roof prism. No doubt there will be fringing upon further testing, as there is no ED. However, haven't seen it yet. Sturdy feel, comfortable in my hand, weight is just right, strap is VERY comfortable. Objective caps are slightly loose. Tie them together. This is what a binocular in this class should feel like and this is what the images should look like. No unhappy surprises. Why can't more makers do this? Good job, Kowa. If I purchase an ED set, I will try yours first.
