Minox Binoculars



With their sharp optics and natural color rendition, the MINOX APO-HG binoculars already rank in the top binocular engineering class. MINOX engineers have been able to extend the field of view by up to 15%, demonstrating the latest technologies in the manufacturing of high quality binoculars. These binoculars are made at our parent plant in Wetzlar, a further reference for highest optical performance.

"Made in Germany" is the seal of approval standing for quality, precision and solidity and expresses our corporate philosophy - a guarantor of meticulous care and precision during the entire development and production process and of products that meet uncompromising demands.

The APO-HG binoculars deliver maximum performance in every discipline. One of which is to include the 21 layers of M* coating and the silver-containing Minobright reflective coating on the phase-corrected roof prisms. Excellent handling of the binoculars is made possible using the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF) feature developed by MINOX. Just a single turn of the focusing knob enables a very fast precision adjustment from close-focus to infinity, with a very sharp image.

The MINOX APO-HG line also features very high quality ED glass and offers the user an outstanding optical performance for superb viewing.

MINOX APO-HG binoculars come in an exclusive wooden box together with an elegant leather case as well as a neoprene strap and lens cleaning set.

Bowsite Notes:

I own a pair of Swarovski 10x42 ELs along with Leica compact binoculars. My first reaction after receiving my pair of Minox APO HG 8x43's was Holy Crap! These things were every bit as clear and sharp as my Swarovski glasses yet quite a bit lighter. I noticed a slightly better light gathering characteristic over my ELs as well. The same precision German manufacturing process is evident in these binoculars. Minox is not a well known brand in the US, but it is very well known in Europe as being in that top tier with the other European brands. If you are in the market for serious optics, you really should try Minox. - Pat Lefemine, owner
