10x33 Genesis XD33 Binoculars
The 10x33 binoculars employ Kowa's own Prominar XD glass, which aims to minimize or eliminate chromatic aberration. This extra-low-dispersion glass was developed for Kowa's incredible TSN-77*/88* line of spotting scopes and using this glass for binoculars is extremely rare to say the least. Kowa uses a costly Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms, which are phase coated and treated with their proprietary C3 coating technology, which allows higher transmissivity and reflectivity than any aluminum, mirror, or silver-based prism backing system.
The Genesis XD33 binoculars feature a light, extremely rugged magnesium frame that's the foundation of its waterproof and fogproof body. The metal-based, rubber-wrapped focusing dial is beautifully precise, doing speedy work in reaching its impressive shortest distance of just 5'. Genesis XD33 makes for a great tool for butterfly observation. The rubber armored contours fall perfectly to hand, with an upper bridge that fits your fingertips as comfy as you please.
This 10x33 6.8° binoculars provide a relatively wide view coupled with extended depth of field and higher magnification in a medium size. They are intended for those with the skill to make the best use of the 3.3mm exit pupil and high 10x magnification and are a lovely choice for an experienced field guide or birder preferring compactness to absolute light gathering.
