Planning to buy a Zoom Binoc?

I was most delighted to receive the product so promptly here in New Zealand. Sadly most disappointed that Nikon zoom optics cannot focus sharply at any stage beyond 15X. It is excellent in terms of field of view & viewing angle as well as quality of optics, however sadly I regret having bough the zoom category as any zoom over 15x till 22x lacked quality of focussing with the exception that for close objects the 15-22X it did a great job.

I was most delighted to receive the product so promptly here in New Zealand. Sadly most disappointed that Nikon zoom optics cannot focus sharply at any stage beyond 15X. It is excellent in terms of field of view & viewing angle as well as quality of optics, however sadly I regret having bough the zoom category as any zoom over 15x till 22x lacked quality of focussing with the exception that for close objects the 15-22X it did a great job. However try to focus on a large object like the moon using 22X zoom; it could not show the entire object in focus & the focus was poor, too gross & not expected of Nikon, for some cheaper alternative I would have accepted but not from Nikon. So major setback here is that the zoom after 15 -to 22 is practically useless, for both astronomy & terrestrial observation or it is a defect in mine. Another observation is that the 50mm lense caps are cheap plastic compared to the beautiful eyepiece caps of excellent quality rubber. Also those objective lense (50mm) caps have a split (as the original design)in their strap connector, this may be convenient to load them on to the attached neck strap (of very good quality) however this design will also cause them to fall off while in use. This would need to be looked at or else do not keep the caps on strap. Overall why pay so much for the zoom factor when anything beyond 15x is not worth it. Might as well go for a cheaper 50x50 maybe.

I often use this Nikon binocular to watch stars at night. I can see Orion Nebula with 22 times maginification, look like a star with 10 times but 22 times, I can see the difference. This Nikon binocular is really handy. I even have a 25 to 125 times mag. 80 mm lens size binocular but it is bulky and not handy so needed tripod. As far as performance and quality, I love this Nikon binocular.

Exactly what I was looking for

I did my homework before deciding on this particular product & I'm pleased with the results. They're actually steadier at the higher magnifications than reviews I had read. The only problem was the dial didn't want to go all the way back to 10x zoom when it had been turned all the way to 22x. It seems to have worked itself out now after doing it multiple times. All in all, we're very pleased with the product

The product was as described and received in a timely fashion. This is a quality product and I would recommend to others. The lenses are quite clear and focus easily. My long term use is not yet established but if remains as is I would recommend these binoculars to others.

Primarily used when photographing wildlife in nearby sanctuaries. Bright, clear images make these great for spotting subjects to photograph. I've used them now in two wildlife areas and kayaking once. They're not ruggedized, so be careful you don't drop them. I'll never go back to the $25 big box store optics i've used before, there's just no comparison! Now I'm curious just how much better premium optics like the Monarch line can be, if these are so good.
