Athlon Argos G2 8x42 HD Details

The 8x42 version of the Athlon Argos is truly an all-purpose binocular that won't let you down in almost any scenario but is one that really excels in lower light conditions and at reasonably close observation distances. The bright, high-quality image and wide view ensure that birders, hunters, and general nature enthusiasts will be able to quickly locate and follow their subject even in thick, dim lit woods, before sunrise or at dusk. This is also the ideal instrument for use in urban gardens and your local park. These binoculars also have ample eye-relief and adjustable twist-up eyecups that will please those who wear glasses. 

Athlon Argos Binoculars

Consisting of six different roof prism models, spread between three different size categories, the Athlon Argos G2 series can be summarized as a diverse, affordable mid-level range of binoculars with an excellent performance to cost ratio.
Particularly notable at this price point is the high level of optical coatings that are used and which directly contributes to their class leading views.

Important Features

The lightweight magnesium housing is an economical option commonly found at this price point because it is relatively robust, lightweight and completely resistant to corrosion. It is completely sealed and filled with Argon gas ensuring that the Argos is not only fog and waterproof, but also impervious to dust and other small particles. All models also have a large, easy to reach central focus wheel, comfortable twist-up eyecups with intermediate click stops and a right eye diopter adjustment to calibrate the binocular to match your particular eyesight.

Optical Properties

The of quality of optics incorporated into the Argos is very impressive at this price range: The whole system is fully multi-coated with anti-reflective coatings that reduce undesired reflections as well as increase light transmission resulting in brighter, more defined images. 
Roof prisms are fashioned from quality BaK-4 glass and are phase corrected. But what is really extraordinary is that these prisms have Dielectric mirror coatings applied to them, wheres most of their direct competitors will use silver. The difference in the amount of light that gets reflected is not trivial and certainly contributes to a brighter, better quality view.
On top of this, the Argos also uses Athlon’s Xtra protective outer lens coatings as found on the top end models.


Athlon Argos binoculars come bundled with a good assortment of accessories. This includes a well padded, comfortable neck strap. A protective carry case, with its own adjustable strap and a Velcro closure. Tethered soft rubber/plastic objective lens covers, a well-fitting rain guard and a good quality lens cleaning cloth.
