Minolta 8x40 Activa WP.FP WA Binoculars 8460417 Features:

Weatherproof & Fogproof Construction

Minolta Activa WP.FP binoculars are ruggedly constructed for reliable performance anytime and anywhere -- even in rain, snow, and sea spray. These top-quality instruments offer a degree of protection equivalent to IPX4 in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards - protected against strong water splashing from any direction. Additionally, Activa WP.FP binoculars are filled with nitrogen gas, which prevents the lenses from fogging up with sudden temperature changes. 

Superior-Quality Optics 

Minolta 8x40 Activa WP.FP WA Binoculars are crafted with 100% multi-coated optics including high-refraction BaK-4 glass prisms and hybrid aspherical lens elements *, for unsurpassed contrast and brightness with clear, crisp viewing right out to the edges of the viewing field. .

Long Eye Relief for Eyeglass Wearers

Conventional binoculars with normal eye relief do not provide a proper viewing distance for eyeglass wearers, because the focal point of the eye is too close to the eyepiece lens. The result is an incomplete and uncomfortable "tunnel-vision" image when viewing with glasses on.

Minolta Activa WP.FP binoculars solve this problem by featuring a long eye relief up to 19mm, providing full-image viewing for eyeglass wearers. The retractable eyepiece cup is easy to adjust with a simple motion -- just twist it down clockwise for viewing with your glasses on.

Wide Range of Magnifications 

Minolta Activa WP.FP binocular will suit virtually any activity or interest. They are ideal for birding, nature/wildlife observation, concerts, theaters, exhibitions, traveling, hiking, marine sports, sports events, and astronomy. 

Wide Angle-of-View 

Models 7x35, 8x40, 10x50, and 12x50 provide a wide angle-of-view which allows more area to be viewed without moving the binoculars. A wide-angle-of-view is especially valuable when viewing moving objects. 

Durable, Rubber-Armored Body 

For a secure grip even in wet conditions, Activa WP.FP binoculars are coated with durable, protective rubber armor. 

Click-Stop Diopter Adjustment 

Diopter adjustment allows the user to pre-set the binoculars to his or her eyes' requirements -- this adjustment is independent of focusing and needs to be set only once for the user. Positive click-stops prevent the adjustment ring from rotating accidentally during use. 

Center-Wheel Focusing 

For following fast action, focusing should be quick, easy, and precise. Activa's oversized center-focusing wheel can be operated easily with either hand, and allows you to quickly zero in on a subject or track moving objects effortlessly. Center-wheel focusing is quick and smooth even when wearing gloves.

25-Year USA Limited Warranty 

Minolta Activa WP.FP binoculars are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for 25 years from the date of purchase.

Helpful Positive Review Minolta 8X40 Activa WP.FP WA Binoculars by Legacy Reviewer, July 24, 2007
