Two full-featured, high-quality, high-power binoculars have been introduced by MINOX USA -- the BV 8x42 and BV 10x42. By using multi-coated lens elements, the MINOX optical system provides high light-transmission and excellent color brilliance, and reduces glare to a minimum. Superior detail rendition and contrast are benefits from roof prisms with phase-correction coating. With a slim roof-prism design and robust rubber armoring, these binoculars are surprisingly lightweight, resting securely and comfortably in the hand, even for extended viewing. Sealing technology protects them from dust and makes them watertight to 10 feet.
