Kowa Binoculars SV42 8x42

The Kowa SV42 8x42 binoculars are in the higher segment of the SV-series of Kowa. With its 665 grams, these binoculars are suitable for various activities. Would you like to watch (water) sports events up close, spot airplanes and/or birds or are you looking for a pair of binoculars for hunting? Then the Kowa SV42 with a magnification of 8 times an excellent choice. The SV-series represents the perfect balance between optimal performance and modern design!

All components in the SV series are fully multicoated. This ensures that light transmission, colour definition, brightness and contrast always perform at their best. The roof prisms are also treated with phase coatings to increase their reflective power. This creates a sharper image and looks a lot more pleasant for the user. Also, the lenses are equipped with the Kowa Repelling (KR) lens coatings and the roof side binoculars are 100% waterproof. Due to the availability of KR lens coatings, the Kowa SV-series is easy to maintain.


Because the roof prisms are treated with phase coatings, the reflective power is increased. This results in a sharper image. The Kowa Repelling technology prevents grease, liquid and dirt from accumulating on the surface, making cleaning much easier. This KR technology also reduces the risk of scratching a vulnerable lens surface, as less bush needs to be applied to remove dirt. With the 100% waterproof Kowa SV42 8x42 fully filled with nitrogen gas, these roof-mounted binoculars can cope with all temperature fluctuations without fogging up the lenses on the inside.


The sharpness of the Kowa SV42 8x42 goes with the central focusing wheel which is very easy to handle. Under the right eyepiece is a dioptric adjustment ring with a special groove to give extra grip during use. This allows the binoculars to be precisely focused and adapted to the individual user to provide a clear and sharp image.
