Konica Minolta announces the release of the Classic III series, Porro-prism binoculars that are water resistant and that boast a wide field-of-view and a functional design. Available in four configurationsthe 7x35WR, 7x50WR, 8x40WR, and 10X50WRthe Classic III is ideal for a range of situations, including bird watching or sporting events, or just enjoying the outdoors.

Water-Resistant
All Classic III series models are O-ring sealed, preventing moisture from getting inside even if the binoculars get slightly wet with droplets of water or light mist. Because these binoculars are designed for outdoor use, theres no need to let light rain stop you from enjoying the view.

Optical Performance
The Classic III series prism glass is made from high-refraction BaK4, which offers minimal flaring and superior clarity. Multi-coated lenses mean bright, high-contrast images.

Wide Angle and Long-Eye Relief
The Wide-Angle 7x35WR, 8x40WR, and 10X50WR models offer a 65 apparent angle of view. This lets you see more from side-to-side when looking through the binoculars, making it easy to find things faraway and to follow moving subjects. In addition, the 7x50WR model has long eye relief, so users wearing glasses have as full a field-of-view as users who dont.

Body
The Classic III series has a new rubber-armoured design that allows for a secure grip. The high-quality focus knob makes for easy, precise adjustments and puts you firmly in control, whether watching a sports match or observing wild animals in their natural habitat.
