Genesis 22 10x22mm Prominar XD Binocular by Kowa Optics

Introducing the Kowa Genesis 22 10x22mm Prominar XD Binocular is a flagship ultra-compact binocular that features Kowa's legendary XD optics.

It is the smallest model in the Genesis Prominar range, but it still packs a punch with its 2 Kowa high-grade XD objective lenses.

These lenses are made with high-resolution ED glass that contains large amounts of fluorite crystal, which is the best material available today for avoiding chromatic aberration and intensifying contrast.

The result is a simply stunning view of the natural world with pin-sharp images, natural colors, high contrast, and breath-taking detail.
