With a magnification-objective lens configuration favored by professionals all over the world, the HAWKE Frontier ED X 8x42 Binocular delivers bright high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity across its expansive field of view.
The binocular features extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass with phase-correcting and dielectric coatings on the BAK4 prisms. Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics round out the optical features, and when combined with the glass and prism systems produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate colors and enhanced clarity without distortion or fringing. The wide apparent angle of view presents an immersive observational experience with the ability to take in large areas without having to move.
A fast-focusing mechanism runs through the full focal range in just 1.5 turns of the large center focusing knob, making finding subjects fast and tracking moving targets easy. Designed to stand up to a life lived outdoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to give them a waterproof rating of IPX7 and make them fogproof even when moving through extreme temperature variations.
The chassis is made from a magnesium alloy to make them lightweight and corrosion resistant. Hawke includes tethered front and rear lens caps to add an additional layer of protection in the field, with the ability to quickly react to glassing opportunities without fear of losing the caps.
