Description

The Zhumell 8x42 Nova ED BAK4 Prism Roof Binocular is the newest entry from Zhumell, and their first to feature ED (extra-low dispersion) glass for unrivaled clarity and lightness. At a significantly lower price point than their peers, the Nova 8x42 Binoculars offer crystal clear views with BAK4 prisms and fully multi-coated ED lenses. Encased in a rugged and easy-to-manage rubber casing, these binoculars offer plenty of practical features to get excited about. Twist-up eyecups for comfortable viewing, independent right diopter and center focus knobs, and a water- and fog-proof body make these the perfect choice for anytime, anywhere. The Novas also come with lens caps, a carrying strap, and a nylon case. All Zhumell binoculars also come with a 25-year no-fault warranty.

    I was advised to buy a more expensive brand ("you get what you pay for") but took a chance on these, which had all the features I am looking for, but are not well known. I knew I could return them. In fact they're comfortable (not heavy), they're clear, the image is crisp and bright. They compare favorably to much more expensive brands and models. I'm so happy and I'll be keeping them!

    Some blurring at edge of field, overall sharp image. Feels quality in the hand. Tiny bit of slop when switching directions on focus wheel. Minimal CA. Included strap could be better.

      Comments about Zhumell 8x42mm Nova ED BAK4 Roof Prism Binoculars:

      Zhumell has produced a very solid product here. I consider myself quite expert at evaluating optics in a practical sense and for a mid range binocular this has met most of my criteria. There are plenty of binoculars in the $200 to $400 range that don't fare as well. Overall- very pleased.

        Comments about Zhumell 8x42mm Nova ED BAK4 Roof Prism Binoculars:

        These binoculars are very compact with superb optical quality. They give sharp, bright, contrasty views, with a solid focus ring and diopter adjustment. The field is sharp almost to the edge, although there's a tiny bit of chromatic aberration toward the edge of the very wide apparent field of view. Some pincushion is evident when panning. The accessories are all very functional, the case has a belt loop and both the case strap and the bino strap are comfortable. The owners' manual belongs to some other binocular, as the diopter adjustment described does not exist in these. i purchased these binos for general use and also for astronomy. I had these at an excellent observing site Saturday night and was impressed by the quality of the view. For amateur astronomers, I can tell you that the Milky Way appeared granular; M31, the Andromeda Nebula was beautiful and detailed, with the bright nucleus and arms extending to the sides, and with some mottling visible. M33 appeared as a gray irregular patch, and M8, the Lagoon Nebula, showed detail. A globular cluster in Delphinus showed up as a round patch. Stars were pinpoint almost to the edge of the field. These binos are an excellent value, as they were only $91 and previously retailed for $229. They are competitive in quality with binoculars at that price and higher.
