The Vixen Optics 10x42 Artes J DCF ED Binoculars are designed to produce the exceptional image quality that one would expect from an optic made in Japan.

Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass is used for the objective lens elements and BAK4 glass for the roof prisms to start the performance. The next layer includes phase-correcting, highly reflective prism coatings, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, all of which combine to increase light transmission, reduce color fringing, and enhance clarity and contrast throughout the wide field of view. Each of these elements offers the user a vivid, clear observational experience with accurate color representation.

Vixen uses an open-bridge/dual-hinge layout to complement the optical performance. This configuration lightens the optic while giving more surface area than closed bridges for a more comfortable grip without compromising overall strength and stability. The optical tubes are covered in a slip-resistant rubber armor, and the chassis is constructed of a strong, lightweight magnesium alloy. The binoculars' optical tubes are nitrogen-filled, O-ring sealed, waterproof, and resistant to internal fogging to withstand the rigors of year-round use. In order to prevent arm weariness and distracting hand tremor during prolonged observation sessions, the ARTES-J can be tripod mounted with an optional Vixen Type-M adapter.



➼ Powerful 10x magnification allows for detailed observations of distant objects
➼ Moderate 42mm objective lenses provide improved low-light performance versus smaller-objective models, without adding excessive bulk
➼ Compact BAK4 roof prisms deliver a round exit pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
➼ Phase-correcting prism coatings increase contrast and clarity while eliminating halos and off-axis comas
➼ Highly-reflective dielectric prism coatings transmit greater than 99% of light entering the prisms to limit internal light loss and maintain image brightness, contrast, and clarity
➼ Extra-low dispersion glass corrects chromatic aberrations to produce accurate colors without fringing
➼ Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity, and improves contrast and image brightness
➼ Wide 60° apparent angle of view helps to minimize the appearance of visible hand-shake that can distract from views when holding high-power optics
➼ 315-foot field of view at 1000 yards
