The Nikon Monarch 8.5x45 features Nikon's dielectric coated prisms to help you make every last second of legal hunting time count. A lightweight new body design provides excellent balance and the user friendliness of smaller objective models. Long, 20.6mm eye relief and waterproof/fogproof ruggedness makes the Monarch X at home on tough stalks or slow sits in the stand.

Gave two to my brother for 60th BD The 8.5 is easier to hold than 10.5 great for scenes looks better than real life I have monark X 10.5 it has its advantages
I am a birder. This is my second pair (one for home, one for the car) of these binoculars. They are sharp and remarkable in low light. For the price this may be the best binoculars on the market.
Good for viewing detail in birds at ten feet as well as at 150 feet. Easy to use. Fairly light weight.
