The four new, updated MINOX BV II binoculars all deliver a combination of sleek, ergonomic design and performance features, with an outstanding price/performance ratio. They also offer a choice of compact or full-size models.
All four feature multi-coated lens elements that minimize reflections and provide exceptionally high light transmission, as well as neutral color rendition. Roof prisms with phase-corrected coating ensure images with excellent detail and high image contrast, even in low-light conditions. The sturdy aluminum bodies are coated with a new black rubber material (NBR) for a comfortable, sure grip and they are waterproof to about 10 feet.
