Improved does not adequately describe all the upgrades found in the Kowa BD XD 42mm binocular. Prominar XD objective lenses significantly decrease chromatic aberration and deliver high-contrast images. Enhancements to the BD XD binocular design include additional eye relief, an expanded field of view, a 4.9 feet close focus, a smaller and lighter size, and rugged magnesium housing. Add it all up and no matter how you use it, the Kowa BD XD is built to excel.

Nice! - 08/26/2015

by Karla from Arkansas

These are great binos for use in the real world. I'm a pretty active birder in all kinds of weather and conditions. I just can't bring myself to wrap $1000s of dollars around my neck to muck around the woods. The Kowas are fairly lightweight for their size and have sweet optics. They are fantastic optics in this price range. The EO salesman was exceptionally helpful when I chose them. They have seen a lot of wildlife!

Solid mid price range binoculars. Great images for the approx $500 purchase price.
