Kowa Binoculars SVII 8x42

With the new SVII series, Kowa has introduced a modern and affordable pair of binoculars on the market which is equipped with high quality optics. All lenses are made of high quality Japanese eco-glass and have different coatings to achieve the best results. The housing has also been upgraded, making the SVII series even more comfortable to handle.

The Kowa SVII 8x42 binoculars are compact and with only 665 grams they are ideal for various purposes. 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 SVII with lenses of 32mm and magnification of 8 times is an excellent choice. The SVII series represents the perfect balance between optimum performance and modern design!

All components in this SVII 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 results in a sharper image and a much more pleasant view for the user. The lenses are also equipped with the Kowa Repelling (KR) lens coatings and the roof prism binoculars are 100% waterproof. The KR lens coatings make the Kowa SVII series 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 fragile lens surface, as less pressure is required to remove dirt. With the 100% waterproof Kowa SVII 8x42 fully filled with nitrogen gas, these roof prism binoculars can cope with all temperature fluctuations without fogging up the lenses on the inside.


The focus of the Kowa SVII 8x42 is controlled 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 accurately focused and adapted to the individual user to provide a clear and sharp image.

Field of view

The SVII 8x42 from Kowa has a huge field of vision with 110 meters at 1000 meters.


The Kowa SVII 8x42 binoculars come with a comfortable carrying strap and a water-repellent bag in addition to the lens caps and eyepiece protection cap. This means you don't have to worry when it suddenly starts to rain or when you are at the water's edge. Of course a manual is included and the SVII 8x42 is delivered in a luxurious package.

If you want to observe objects or animals in a relaxing way, it is also possible to place the new Kowa SVII binoculars on a tripod. For this you need to use the optional Kowa Binoculars Tripod Adapter. This adapter can be mounted on the front of the binoculars by removing the cover with the name Kowa on the front of the binoculars. This Tripod adapter can be found with optional accessories.

Application Kowa Binoculars SVII 8x42

The Kowa SVII binoculars are extremely compact and lightweight. This allows them to be used for various observations. From birdwatching and/or airplane spotting to water sports events, but also for hunting. The KR lens coatings make the Kowa SVII series easy to clean.

The 100% water and fog resistant rubber armour ensures that the lenses are well protected against accidents.
