About Nikon

The Nikon Fieldscope 82mm ED utilizes either an angled or straight all-metal, O-ring sealed metal body that is waterproof, shockproof and fogproof for use in any weather condition. The body incorporates an ergonomically designed, rubber coated, ridged focus ring for quick focus and easy long-term focus maintenance. Both versions are compatible with common tripods as well as Nikon's exclusive Window Mount for steadier viewing from a vehicle.

The hearts of Nikon's Fieldscope 82mm ED scopes are their advanced optical designs and components. The lens glass is a select gradeof ultra-premium ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass that is expertly ground and precisely polished for unexcelled image resolution. The lenses and high-index BaK4 prisms are coated with multiple layers of Nikon's own proprietary anti-reflective compounds to enhance light transmission, provide true color rendition, and deliver flare free viewing, making them ideal for spotting long range game or varmints, or discerning bullet holes in distant targets

Both new models incorporate a sliding sunshade for the objective lens that not only reduces the effect of glare on sunny days, but also serves to keep rain and dust off the objective lens in wet or dusty conditions.

The Nikon Fieldscope 82mm ED straight body measures 12.8" x 4.25" and weighs 56.4 ounces with 25x eyepiece. The angled body version measures 13.3" x 4.25" and weighs 56 ounces with the same 25x eyepiece. Both models close focus down to 46 feet, and provide a 256-foot field of view at 1,000 yards with a 25x eyepiece in place. Both versions are eyeglass friendly, allowing 14.5mm of eye relief.

Nikon Fieldscope 82mm ED scopes are compatible with a wide range of Nikon's waterproof Fieldscope eyepieces as well as the Nikon Photo Attachment (not merely a camera adapter tube, but a high specification lens assembly comprised of 4 elements in 4 groups for Nikon quality photographs). The range of eyepieces includes a 25x, 30x wide angle, 38x wide angle, 50x, 50x wide angle, 75x wide angle, and a 25x-56x zoom and a 25x-75x zoom. The Nikon Photo Attachment converts the 82mm Fieldscope to a 1000mm f12.2 camera lens.

Solid Performance

I purchased the angled scope to carry out waterbird research. Tested over six months of fieldwork it proved to be instrumental at lower magnifications for species counts, and at high magnifications to clearly identify species if I had any doubts. I used the scope on a carbon backpack tripod which as a unit was quick and easy to deploy and provided a solid base.

Exactly What I Wanted

By

from Keene Valley, NY  -  Professional Guide

I've had a Nikon Fieldscope ED 60 for 20 years and have loved it--I dropped it multiple times, left it out in the rain and in the snow: in short, completely mistreated it. Nevertheless, it stayed outstanding despite the abuse. When I felt the need for a more powerful scope, with more light-gathering ability and a significant zoom factor I looked at several top manufacturer's--Leica, Zeiss, Swarovski, Kowa, etc. I simply preferred the quality of the image through the Nikon ED 82--it seemed clearer and crisper than the other scopes, and had a kind of immediacy I can't really put into words, an astonishing clarity that I guess I got used using a Nikon ED 60 lo these past twenty years.. The quality of construction alone would have decided my choice, the precise, smooth focus and the precision feel of rotating the angled viewfinder, to say nothing of the case that took me longer to figure out than my last DSLR (a D300) but that, when I put in facing the right direction, worked like a charm. Bravo! John Thaxton

Great scope

By

from Perth Aus  -  Avid Adventurer

Just works well as it should. Might not be the best but it's rugged and hard to fault. I use it at work inspecting equipment at a safe distance, often high up or high voltage, when binoculars just won't reach or give me the detail I need.

Amazing Detail

By

from Perth West Aust  -  Avid Adventurer

I'm amazed but the detail that can be seen with this scope. At high magnification it gets a little dark and the eye relief is reduced but still good. Needs a good support.
