The Kowa Promina 8x56 DCF ED Binoculars is jam-packed with features that will delight any beginner to experienced user. It offers 8x magnification and 56mm aperture with their PROMINAR lenses which provides you with high optical performance with high clarity and wide field of view so you don't miss out on anything. "PROMINAR" XD Lenses

The "PROMINAR" XD Lenses utilise a C3 coating which is build to enhance the prism reflection rate. Ultimately this technology optimises the amount of light gathered so that you attain a brighter and clearer field of view.


All lenses have multilayer coating so you that you attain a wider field of view

    One of the major causes of deterioration of viewing quality in optics is chromatic aberration (colour blur). Chromatic aberration occurs due to the dispersion of light and the different wavelengths of light focusing on different positions, resulting in a red or purple fringing around the image. The optimum optical material to minimise chromatic aberration is fluorite crystal.

    A fluorite crystal with extremely low dispersion characteristics is used for the convex lens of the KOW-PRO-856/1056 PROMINAR models. In place of an ordinary optical glass lens, the concave lens paired with the fluorite crystal lens is made of glass with special dispersion properties to reduce the chromatic aberration to a further degree.

    This combination of fluorite crystal and glass with special dispersion properties nearly eliminates chromatic aberration and redefines the standards of colour brilliance.

    This technology is the result of many years of optical design and has realised great reduction in chromatic aberration, while maintaining a large diameter lens and high contrast images when compared with conventional models.

    The XD lens used in the KOW-PRO-856/1056 PROMINAR models has characteristics similar to those of fluorite crystal to significantly reduce the chromatic aberration. All lenses are environmentally friendly Eco-Glass. (Eco-Glass is an environmentally friendly glass that does not contain lead or other harmful substances.)
