Kowa SV50-12 overview

  • 1Description

The SV 12x50 Binocular (Black) from Kowa Sporting Optics is a large sized binocular pushing the limits of handheld viewing without the wobbles. Long term viewing will, in all probability, require some kind of support for these powerful and optically precise full sized binoculars. The optics are fully multicoated minimizing light loss and increasing brightness. Phase coated for true color fidelity and provided with a highly reflective coating that produces a clear visual range and sharp image puts this binocular on a level of optical excellence. With an objective large enough for good observing during twilight hours when the game is more apt to show itself, this size binocular is also a good choice for astronomical viewing.

The housing is fully sealed, and purged with bone-dry nitrogen to ensure all-weather performance. Regardless of the climate - the field-of-view will be sparkling clear, while the optic's internal mechanism will be well protected from the negative effects of moisture. Outdoor enthusiasts will greatly appreciate the benefits of a comfortable grip and the added shock-resistance provided by the rubber armoring. Twist-up eyecups contribute to the viewing comfort; twist down for use with glasses, twist up for use without. The conspicuous red line at the intersection of the closed bridge adds a distinctly snazzy flavor to the overall visual presentation. This is a large sized, roof binocular with an especially sleek and attractive flowing design. Smooth and sleek with strategically placed indentations in the rubber, this is a scope for distance viewing and/or low-light conditions.

AAoV of 57.8°
Twist-up eye cups permit comfortable long term viewing
Polycarbonate inner body for light but strong construction
A Relative Brightness of 17.6 and a Twilight Factor of 24.5
Nitrogen filled waterproof and fogproof ensures all-weather performance
Roof prisms offer a smaller, lighter, sleeker architecture with fewer internal parts
Depressions placed in the rubber armor make it easy to grip and hold the binoculars
KR coating is a blend of special coatings that enhances the performance of the lens and imparts easy cleaning
Phase coating ensures that color wave-lengths have the same focus point reducing chromatic aberration and ensuring color fidelity
Fully multicoated optics provide multiple layers on all air to glass surfaces for a brighter, higher-contrast image with less eyestrain

Kowa SV50-12 reviews

SV 12x50 Binocular (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality! Special phase coating and larger diameter objectives make for more light transmission. Objects are clearer and sharper even at long distances. Very light (26.6 oz.) easty to carry and easy focus with larger focusing knob. I have two other pair of binoculars and these are just incredible in comparison. I have had many binoculars and these by far for the price are well worth it. Great for hunting, nature, birdwatching and general purpose viewing.
