Nikon binoculars are very sharp and for the price it was a good deal.
Great for hunting. Easy focus. The optics give a clear, stable image. They work great during dawn and dusk light conditions. All round great binoculars.
Took these hunting in NW Montana and I encountered wind, rain, snow, dense brush, you name it- used these one day to glass the mountainsides for mule deer. I am very happy with my purchase and a guide I was with is going to buy the same after borrowing mine.
Excellent brightness and clarity.
For the price the image quality of these binoculars is outstanding. They are not too bulky and are not heavy. Adorama shipped the same day I ordered and they only took four days to arrive in regional Australia - amazing speed.
These will work great on my next hunting trip out west.
I have never tried a thousand dollar pair of binoculars, but I don't see how you can get any better than these. If you are looking in the 8-12x magnification range, look no further. The 42mm objective lens seems to be the perfect choice, the close focus is superb. Most likely because of the ingenious coating method and primo glass, you get the perfect amount of light coming through at all times of day, the color and contrast is brilliant. The adjustable eyecups are also a great design, I use them rotated all the way out and my wife, who wears glasses, uses them fully retracted.
I use this product in my job to conduct bird surveys and general habitat assessments. These binoculars are clear and make identifying birds very easy. The focus wheel however could have been made to focus more quickly i.e. less rotation. My major problem with this product is the weak construction. I bought 3 of these in all and 2 have cracked eyepieces. As a result they are no longer tighly screwed on. I have had them for about 2 years and they seem to need some realigning. The protective covering for the lens were poorly designed as they do not stay in place and sooner or later they become lost. On the plus side though, the price is great for this quality glass. If you take real good care of them they will last a long time.
These binoculars provide great magnification, excellent resolution, and superb clarity. From observing Big Horn Sheep in the Rocky Mountains to identifying birds in the back yard, these have performed perfectly and are a pleasure to use. Focus is fast and smooth. Construction is very light, yet extremely strong and durable. The only improvement might be image stabilization, but that would certainly impact the price.
