Athlon Neos G2 8x42 HD Details

This 8x42 binocular is the perfect general use, all-rounder within the Athlon Neos G2 line-up. This is because the moderate 8x magnification combined with reasonably large 42mm lenses provides a good balance between image detail, the width of view, image brightness and steadiness.
This specific combination ensures that you can very quickly locate what it is that you wish to observe and more easily track it if it is moving. Image brightness in poor light is also good and most users will have no problem in maintaining a steady view. This all adds up to a great viewing experience in a wide range of environments and conditions.
The 17mm of eye relief is also generally considered to be enough for eyeglass wearers to achieve a full image without dark rings on the edges of the view.

About Athlon Neos G2 Binoculars

An entry-level series, the Neos G2 is the least expensive offering within the Athlon Optics stable. It encompasses a wide variety of models and thus is sure to accommodate users shopping on a tight budget.
There are four roof prism models, with either the standard sized 8x42 or 10x42 models or the more compact and travel-friendly 8x32 and 10x32 options to choose from.
Available in either 10x or 12x magnifications, the two larger 50mm Neos binoculars use porro prisms and thus have the more iconic binocular shape with the objective lenses sitting further apart than the eye-pieces. Whilst this design is not as compact as the roof prism one, it is very comfortable to hold and produces a better stereoscopic image.

Important Features

All Neos binoculars have a composite shell with a durable rubber armour coating on the exterior which as well as protection, also adds grip and is a more camouflaged, less reflective surface.
The housing is o-ring sealed and is internally filled with Nitrogen gas to ensure that the device is both 100% water and fog proof. These seals also prevent dust and other particles from entry and the dry, oxygen-free interior prevents any fungal or mold growth that you sometimes find on unprotected binoculars.
Focusing is achieved via a large centrally positioned wheel and all models come with a diopter adjuster and multi-positional twist-up eyecups to ensure that they can be customised to meet your particular requirements.
These binoculars are also easily fixed to a tripod using a common adapter which attaches to the screw thread on the front hinge. This ensures a completely steady image and is especially welcomed on the heavier, more powerful models or for those with very shaky hands.

Optical Properties

All models within the Neos series use prisms made from BaK-4 glass and whilst the two 50mm porro prism options are fully multi-coated, the four roof prism versions are only multi-coated.
Added to this, if you also consider that porro prisms do not require special coatings to achieve total light transmission and that the roof prism models use silver and not the dielectric coatings as on Athlon’s more expensive ranges then there is no doubt that the 10x50 and 12x50 Neos will not only capture more light but transmit a higher percentage of it to your eyes than the roof prism versions.


Athlon Optics supply these Neos binoculars with a soft carry case, neck strap, both objective and ocular lens covers and a cleaning cloth.
