About Nikon

The Action VII Series binoculars utilize a multicoated, high resolution, aspherical lens system engineered to provide an extremely clear, distortion-freeimage over the entire field of view. The advanced eyepiece design also offers substantial eye relief, which makes the binocular eyeglass compatible

The Action Series binoculars are built on an all-metal chassis and lens fittingshoused in a tough, lightweight polycarbonate body shell. The binocular bodies are ergonomically shaped, tripod adaptable and are rubber coated for an easy, non-slip grip. A new black color scheme complements the updated design of the Action Series binoculars

Like all Nikon central focus binoculars, the new Action Series features a diopter control for total viewing consistency. This control, located on the binocular's right eyepiece, is essential to compensate for common left eye/righteye vision imbalance

Nikon Action Series binoculars incorporate multi-layered anti-reflective lens coatings formulated to deliver optimum brightness, high contrast, true color rendition and flare-free viewing. The Action Series also utilizes BaK4 high index prisms for clear, round images free from vignetting

Excellent Value

I selected the brand because I'm a second generation Nikon photographer (my mom was a photo-journalist and used only Nikon). I've had wonderful experiences with their cameras and lenses so I didn't even look at other brands. I chose the 8x40 format because it provided a steady, hand-holdable level of magnification with a very wide field of view.

I selected the brand because I'm a second generation Nikon photographer (my mom was a photo-journalist and used only Nikon). I've had wonderful experiences with their cameras and lenses so I didn't even look at other brands. I chose the 8x40 format because it provided a steady, hand-holdable level of magnification with a very wide field of view. This package has proven pleasant for daylight viewing of birds and wildlife as well as for stargazing in the evenings. I've been able to enjoy gorgeous views of Andromeda, Orion, the seven sisters, etc. from my back porch. These are light, sturdy and resist the elements well. The optics are extremely sharp in the top 3/4th of the image with a little bit of mushiness in the bottom. They present an excellent value for the money.

A good choice for birds at home & away

By

from Upper Middle Coast, TX  -  Casual/ Recreational

Good quality optics & very affordable A little on the heavy side, but I will park them at the ready on boat or at home for the occasional opportunity to observe nature up close. I may acquire another or two to replace the three pair that I suddenly realized had all been degraded by time in the Texas elements.

Great value

I replaced a 20 year old Nikon with their newest lo-end binoculars. Excellent trade, the new set is lighter, wider field, and new, new, new.

Fine optics

By

from Rocklin, CA  -  Avid Adventurer

Fantastic optical quality for the price. I can't get over how good they are for being so cheap. The eye cups may not work for everyone (eyeglass wearers) but they get the job done for me. I recommend you go ahead and buy these if you're still thinking about it.
