From the invention of the original spotting scope in the 1950s, every decade has seen Japanese optics manufacturer, Kowa continue to innovate in the world of optical design & technology.


This legacy continues today with the reinvention of the popular Kowa BD Binocular series. Introducing the BDII-XD. A range of enhanced optics at the forefront of imaging excellence utilizing Kowa’s premium XD lenses.


The BDII-XD series feature ED (Extra low dispersion) glass to improve optical performance, but the story does not end there. ED glass is manufactured in a variety of quality grades.


Every BDII-XD model features Kowa’s environmentally friendly, legendary XD objective lenses. This high-resolution ED glass contains large amounts of the mineral fluorite crystal - the best material available today for light transmission ensuring an image with edge to edge sharpness and virtually zero chromatic aberration (color blur). The result: a simply stunning view of the natural world.


Kowa lens coating technology, developed over decades, further enhance the light transmission properties of all lenses and Kowa’s unique KR coating repels dirt and fluid.Enjoy sharp images with natural color, high contrast and incredible detail, from dawn through to dusk.


Every model in the BDII-XD range benefits from a magnesium alloy chassis, a sophisticated molding process produces the feel and strength of metal with the added benefit of decreased weight.The lightweight, rugged structure can tolerate the severest conditions and provides a sense of security and longevity.


The BDII-XD are built to last. Use them with confidence. Surrounding the tough magnesium alloy body is a protective layer of rubber armor, not only providing a sure, comfortable grip but also increasing the level of durability.Each BDII-XD is fully waterproof and dry nitrogen filled to prevent the lenses from fogging and Kowa’s KR coating protects from dirt and other foreign residue build-up that may affix to the lenses during use.


One of the stand-out optical features of the BDII-XD series is their enviable large field of view, boasting class leading wide angle performance. Viewing is super comfortable on the eye, making long periods of use out in the field a pleasure. 

The BDII-XD series are engineered to enhance your viewing experience. A sleek, ergonomic design with a specially selected tactile rubber armor layer ensures easy and comfortable operation - elevating every moment of use.


A fluid, responsive twist focus wheel delivers pinpoint accuracy and smooth twist eye-cups ensure optimum viewing for both eyeglass and non-eyeglass wearers. Tailor the BDII-XD specific to your own viewing requirements with an easy to use diopter adjustment system. The ergonomic body of the BDII-XD series is as impressive as the optics it protects with every curve considered to make observation both relaxing and free from fatigue.

Review by Dennis Mau, Posted on 17-10-2019, 5 Stars.
The new Kowa BDII-XD 10x42 is very impressive. I received it today from USA Binoculars. The quality is very high just like the 6.5x32. I can't find anything wrong with it and I am pretty picky. The focuser is smooth and has no slack, the IPD tension is perfect and the eye cups move smoothly without any play and there are three adjustments. I can actually use it at the 2nd click on the eye cups without blackouts and that is rare for me. Compared to something like the Nikon HG 10x42 the Kowa is more compact, it is lighter, it has a bigger FOV, it controls glare as well and it controls CA better. The only advantage I see with the HG is the edges are sharper and the Kowa compensates with a bigger FOV. The Kowa must have a lot of fluorite crystal in it's lenses as they advertise because it has hardly any CA. It showed less CA than My Swarovski SV 12x50's. I have heard Kowa's are known for good CA control. It is a very good value for $400.00 in a roof prism
