The new OMEGON 8×42 binoculars with roof prisms are a reliable companion for hiking and birdwatching tours, as well as on the water. A compact and powerful set of binoculars for nature observation.
Those are precisely the advantages of the Omegon 8×42 binoculars with roof prisms; their optics and mechanical structure are both in the upper range of their class.
Due to their shape, they perfectly fit in your hands and the rubber armouring provides a firm grip. During observation, the central focusing wheel can be easily operated with just one finger.
It takes no more than half a turn of the wheel to change focus from near to infinite, so you don’t get into irritating trial and error focusing.
The Omegon 8×42 provide a comfortable viewing posture. They come with twist-up eyecups[css] which lock into place, so as to avoid any accidental eyecup retracting during observation.
This set of binoculars offers a wide field of view and excellent sharpness across the field. Objective lenses and eyepieces are multi-coated to reduce light reflection. Lens tubes are internally matte blackened, which contributes to further eliminating any reflections that would result in poor contrast and affect observation.
Features in short:
-Comfortable viewing posture
-Good overall sharpness
-Compact size, but none the less high light transmission
-Good colour correction
-True image reproduction
