The Nikon PROSTAFF 5 binocular comes in black finish and is available in 8x42, 10x42, 10x50 and 12x50 variations. It is built with Nikon's multilayer-coated lenses, which provide higher light transmittance across the entire visible light spectrum. By eliminating the loss of light due to reflection, these multilayered coatings ensure a more natural, clearer view.
The PROSTAFF 5 utilizes Nikon's high-eyepoint design that provides a clear field-of-view and long eye-relief. The long eye-relief ensures a sufficient space between the user's eye and the binocular's eyepiece lenses to make them comfortable for everyone, even for those wearing eyeglasses. The multi-click turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to find the correct eye positioning to see the full field of view.
Made with lead and arsenic free Eco-glass, the optics in the PROSTAFF 5 are not only of Nikon-grade quality, but are also environmentally friendly. The body is made with a fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin, making it both lightweight and durable. It is also nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for waterproof/fogproof performance

My wife and I just returned from a 12 day trip on the Amazon River. These binoculars were great to have along. Being waterproof was very important on this trip and we were not disappointed. We were able to find/see birds, mammals, and reptiles easily with these binoculars.
