Birders looking for a premium binocular that stands out from the pack should seriously consider investing in the Kowa 8.5x44 Genesis XD44. With its Prominar ED glass and C3 multi-coatings, chromatic aberration is virtually obliterated, giving you some of the best views possible of any bird you want to see. Other great features include a rugged magnesium chassis, a larger-than-usual objective lens size to let in extra light, a minimum focusing distance of only 5.6 feet, and a glasses-friendly eye relief of 18 mm. The barrels on the Kowa 8.5x44 Genesis XD44 are O-ring sealed and nitrogen-filled to be waterproof and internally fog-proof, making this full-sized binocular for birding perfect for all weather conditions.
