Comments about Nikon Nikon 10 x 42 Monarch ATB, Water Proof & Rubber Armored Roof Prism Binocular with 6.0 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A:

I use this product in my job to conduct bird surveys and general habitat assessments. These binoculars are clear and make identifying birds very easy. The focus wheel however could have been made to focus more quickly i.e. less rotation. My major problem with this product is the weak construction. I bought 3 of these in all and 2 have cracked eyepieces. As a result they are no longer tighly screwed on. I have had them for about 2 years and they seem to need some realigning. The protective covering for the lens were poorly designed as they do not stay in place and sooner or later they become lost.

On the plus side though, the price is great for this quality glass. If you take real good care of them they will last a long time.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 10 x 42 Monarch ATB, Water Proof & Rubber Armored Roof Prism Binocular with 6.0 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A:

These binoculars provide great magnification, excellent resolution, and superb clarity. From observing Big Horn Sheep in the Rocky Mountains to identifying birds in the back yard, these have performed perfectly and are a pleasure to use. Focus is fast and smooth. Construction is very light, yet extremely strong and durable. The only improvement might be image stabilization, but that would certainly impact the price.
