About this product

The Minox HG binocular range is characterised by sharp optics and natural colour rendition, due to their aspheric lenses and extended objective lens diameter.  The combination of 21-layer M* lens multicoating and the silver-bearing Minobright coating on the phase-corrected roof prisms delivers maximum light transmission and contrast, and the German-engineered magnesium body delivers this image clarity in a lightweight frame.  The binoculars in the Minox HG range have been beautifully designed, with an innovative Quick-Close-Focus (QCF) dial that adjusts sharp images from infinity to close up in less than a full turn and a sleek rubber-armored exterior that protects against knocks.  Minox HG binoculars are filled with argon gas to eliminate fogging and are waterproof to a depth of 5 metres.  The characteristics of the Minox HG binoculars make them ideal for nature watching in all conditions, where image definition is critical.

The Minox HG binoculars come complete with a case and neoprene strap.

Minox HG Binocular range voted 'Best of the Best' by Field & Stream Magazine.

"In our optical quality tests, the Minox HGs were excellent. They also have some of the nicest-feeling engineering and smoothest-turning focus knobs we've found in any binocular. The addition of a distance scale on the focus knob (made possible because the wheel turns less than one full rotation in going from closest to most distant) gives the HG binocular the unique function of acting as a range meter.

The central focus wheel also serves as the easy-to-turn, locking diopter adjustment wheel. The eyecups, with gentle detents, twist out with unusual smoothness and precision. Eye relief for glasses wearers is excellent, as is the optical quality.

Several of our testers remarked that the HG gave a nice feeling in the hand. We judged it to be a great buy for someone looking at the upper end of the mid-priced field, for quality comparable to the high-end binoculars"
Michael and Diane Porter, Bird Watcher's Digest
