The B&H Binocular Buying Guide

With a magnification-objective lens configuration favored by outdoor enthusiasts and outfitted with an exceptional eye relief and wide exit pupil that maximize viewing comfort, the Kowa 8x42 SV II Binoculars provide reliable performance from dawn through dusk and in all weather conditions. To deliver their performance, Kowa employs anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, phase-correction prism coatings, and oil-resistant exterior lens coatings that work together to keep the lenses clean and produce crisp, clear, and bright high-contrast images with accurate color representation.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make these binoculars durable and comfortable to use. They has a lightweight polycarbonate chassis and is protected by rubberized armor that gives them a secure non-slip grip even in cold and wet conditions. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations and environmental conditions. A one-piece ocular rainguard covers the eyecups as the binoculars hang around the neck and prevent rain and spraying water from filling them, and it attaches to the included neck strap to prevent them from being lost on the forest floor.

Optical Performance


Moderate 8x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects like animals, athletes, and architectural details while helping to produce a long eye relief and wide exit pupil

  • 42mm objective lenses deliver the light-gathering capability required for extended use during the pre-dawn and late dusk hours
  • Roof prism light path produces a compact form factor without sacrificing performance
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal light diffraction to improve clarity and contrast
  • 361-foot field of view at 1000 yards


    Use and Handling


    Closed-bridge configuration provides a solid and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism

  • Large rubber-coated center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate, even in cold and wet conditions or when wearing gloves
  • 58.5-72mm interpupillary distance adjustment range enables easy use by people of all sizes
  • Right-eye dioptric correction allows the user to fine-tune the focusing to their individual eyesight—even if they wear corrective lenses
  • Integrated 1/4"-20 threaded adapter socket on front of bridge hinge allows the optic to be tripod mounted with an optional adapter
  • Twist-up multi-position rubber eyecups for comfortable use and correct eye relief, with or without eyewear
  • Exceptional 19.5mm eye relief reduces eyestrain and improves overall viewing comfort
  • Large 5.25mm exit pupil will completely cover pupils as they open and fully dilate in low light, ensuring the entire scene remains in view without vignetting


    Construction Details


    Lightweight and durable polycarbonate chassis reduces weight without sacrificing strength and stability

  • Chassis material is temperature resistant, preventing the expansion and contraction that is common with metal, which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time and prevent sharp focus
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions
  • Protective rubber armor provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Oil-resistant KR exterior lens coatings make it easy for dirt, sap, and oil to be easily cleaned off without smudges or residue
  • One-piece tethered ocular rainguard protects eyecups from water pooling in them from rain or spraying water when hanging from the neck
  • 23.4-ounce weight
