    Kowa Genesis XD 8x33 or Kowa BD II 8x42 XD?

    I have a new Kowa YF II 8x30 that is Assembled in Philippines. I have an older Kowa 6x30 YF II that is MIC. For myself, it's nice to see the new YF II is Philippines. Considering the price, they are both great imo.

    Kowa Genesis XD 8x33 or Kowa BD II 8x42 XD?

    If I was given the choice I would go with the Genesis because it is overall a higher quality binocular, costing twice as much, and made in Japan.
