I use the Nikon Binoculars primarily for hunting and they perform great.
I am a beginning bird watcher. Someone told me that I didn't need to spend more than 7 or 8 hundred dollars for a good pair of binoculars. A lot of money for a beginner. These Nikons are a great buy for someone starting out. Easy to focus, crisp image, waterproof, and well priced.
Great for birdwatching. Very light weight doesn't bother my neck after long hikes.
Very usefull for wildlife spotting while doing wildlife photography and wildlife sound recording.
Mainly use as bird watching and with my Celestron telescope.One of my best purchases ever, great expierence, will use Adorama for continuing online purchases as the need arises.
I bought these Nikon Monarchs for birding after reading many positive reviews on line. Previously I used the Nikon Action line and wanted to upgrade. What initially struck me about the Monarch binoculars at the first use was how lightweight they are. In addition, the image is very bright compared to other binoculars at this price point. They "feel" like much more expensive binoculars. As other reviewers have noted, the lens caps are somewhat annoying and have a tendency to flip back up and obscure the lens. They appear to be easily detachable, however. I would definitely purchase these again.
My last pair of Nikon binoculars were Made in Japan. These are made in China. Quality seems up to Nikon standards, but I didn't understand that these were made in China. I am a one man army who doesn't care to support Communism.
I purchased this binocular for myself after reading the rave reviews in birding magazines - I love it - it can't be beat, particularly at this incredible price. I then bought this one for my spouse - she is just as impressed! I highly recommned this for even the most experienced birder!
I bought these for a whale watching trip. Sharp focus even on a boat in big swells.
Objective lens covers attach by way of a recess in the binocular body and a plastic extension of the lens cover. If inadvertently pulled loose the lens cap button that fits into this recess can be easily damaged resulting in less secure attachment of the cover when lowered for use. When this happened to me the manufacturer promptly and with no questions asked replaced the cover.
