    Cons: Not many; focus point has to be precise and wheel slightly stiff when new, and depth of field not as good as some.

    Pros: Wonderful broad bright image, very crisp. After a few minutes in hand feel lovely and natural. Fab close focus, brilliant day out and travel binocular. The cups/cover at front and rear fit better than any others I've used. Weight is perfect too.

    Summary: Have tried very many modern 8x32 bins and these just about have it all. What is perfection anyway?

    Cons: Well none, I'm use to 1970 family binoculars, from my father.

    Pros: Compact, astonishing color and contrasted images. Blow off any other binoculars in term of contrast in days light. As soon as the conditions get bad, larger aperture bino wins. But for every days wildlife watching these Kowa meet my expectations.

    Summary: It's my first modern bino, I wanted more rugged bino's for modern use (under though atmospheric condition such as rain or snowing). I just fall on a special price offer that triggered my decision. I was a bit hesitating on top brand due to prices. When comparing old German made 1970 against low cost brand I was always disappointed by optics. Not with these Kowa.
