    Fujinon KF ‘H’ series

    KF 8X42H

    The KF 8X42H are affordable entry-level birding binoculars. 8X42 is generally regarded as perhaps the best binocular spec for most birders, since the 42mm objective (front) lens with 8X magnification offers the ideal compromise between magnification, light gathering ability, good field of view and a relatively large exit pupil (4mm).

    The Fujinon KF 8x42H is a decent looking, nitrogen filled roof prism offering pretty good optics in this class. The build seems fairly rugged with a high-quality rubber casing. Eye relief is good at 18mm (long enough for people who wear glasses).

    I was very impressed with the optics offering a bright image which is very sharp and clear. The image was so good that for a while I thought that I was testing a 10X instrument and not an 8!

    This pair also did very well in the low-light comparison I conducted with all the models (see below). The field of view is a good 7.5o. Although high end binoculars these days boast some impressive sounding figures as regards field of view, I am not too sure whether there is such a huge benefit in extending field of view from 7.5 to say 8.5, but more on that later.

    These are entry level binoculars, and one does not expect everything to be top-drawer. The eye-caps are somewhat flimsy and I doubt they would stay in a fixed position during a long day in the field. I also found the focus ring to be a little stiff making fast focusing difficult and a little awkward.
    The binoculars have a solid feel to them and are a little heavier than the compact W range at 670g. Overall the KF 8X42H are a good pair of binoculars at the price and a viable option for beginner or casual birders (or as a spare pair).

    Summary – Fujinon KF 8X42H
    • Very impressive optics offering a bright image which is very sharp and clear.
    • Does very well in low-light comparisons.
    • The KF 8X42H are a good pair of binoculars at the price and a viable option for beginner or casual birders (or as a spare pair).
