Of all the binoculars that I reviewed in 2010, these Genesis XD Binoculars from Kowa were the most impressive. Scoring a perfect 10 for their optical components quality, image quality and for their attention to detail to give them a hugely impressive 90% overall on the Best Binocular Reviews Ratings scale, these really are special binoculars.

Product Highlights

  • Waterproof & Fogproof
  • Wide Angle
  • Roof Prism
  • 6.2° Angle of View (Actual)

Kowa Genesis 10.5x44 Binoculars mark the peak in Kowa's line of roof prism binoculars. They are engineered for the utmost in performance, viewing quality, and durability. This optic is an optical luxury worth every penny as it easily holds its ground with other brands of premium sports optics.

These 10.5x44 binoculars mate Kowa's own Prominar ED glass to minimize chromatic aberration with C3 optical multi-coatings that allow an unheard-of 99% transmissivity of each element between 400 and 700nm, a feature that is very helpful when spotting birds. Most other units competing in the Genesis' range average 95%, and, as such, the Genesis series binoculars certainly stand out from the crowd.

All Genesis series binoculars feature a lightweight, yet extremely rugged magnesium frame that is the foundation of the waterproof and fogproof body. Optically, the unit can focus down to an amazing 5.5' and the boost in objective lens size from a more common 42mm to 44mm provides a clear view that is 10% brighter. Internal focusing aids in keeping the overall operating size from becoming unwieldy.

    Good overall bino
    I've spent probably close to 60 hours behind these binos to date hunting the high country, glassing for hours at a time and in all light conditions. Low light performance is very good. Color rendition is excellent. Edge to edge clarity is good but not perfect. Eye relief is decent. I have noticed a small amount of chromatic aberration in certain light conditions but for the most part is non existant. These binos are heavy, the eye cup adjustment is not as smooth as I wouldve liked for such an expensive product. If holding the binos with one hand they have a tendency to collapse so you're constantly readjusting... Overall these are a good option in this price point, but not in the 'alpha'category as I was hoping for.
