Comments about Nikon Nikon 10 - 22 x 50 Action Zoom Xl, Weather Resistant Porro Prism Binocular with 3.8 Degree Angle of View at 10x, U.S.A.:

The Nikon construction is 3/5 Particularly the focussing (moving)part of the ocular lenses does not inspire confidence. The Zoom mechanism is ingenius & top class, mechanically speaking. The optics are really good till 18x, then re focussing is required, additionally the inter ocular distance (angle) has to be altered to re adjust to higher zoom. This is obviously causing some eye strain. Focussing at high zoom shows very low depth of field & is extremely difficult to focus. Armour on Body & focussing knob as well as weight are all very good. The ability to zoom in on objects close by at max. zoom is great, but beyond 100 feet approx the 22x zoom is not good as depth of field deteriorates terribly, also the distance between eyes has to be readjusted. According to the accompanying literature: focus the binoculars at max zoom & then zoom out for correct continued focussing. This is positively inaccurate. Overall great Bino to watch close by objects with max zoom, but for distant objects, any zoom above 18x is a complete waste of money. Hence advice if you are looking for high zoom (above 18-50X) binoculars try the fixed not zoom ones, as I am disappointed with this aspect of the Nikon. Apart for these cons optical quality is very good & rest of their body construction is solid. The neck strap is of very good quality. The addition of the tripod mount is thoughtful. Case could be made of waterproof material especially if it is to be carried outdoors.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 10 - 22 x 50 Action Zoom Xl, Weather Resistant Porro Prism Binocular with 3.8 Degree Angle of View at 10x, U.S.A.:

I was most delighted to receive the product so promptly here in New Zealand. Sadly most disappointed that Nikon zoom optics cannot focus sharply at any stage beyond 15X. It is excellent in terms of field of view & viewing angle as well as quality of optics, however sadly I regret having bough the zoom category as any zoom over 15x till 22x lacked quality of focussing with the exception that for close objects the 15-22X it did a great job. However try to focus on a large object like the moon using 22X zoom; it could not show the entire object in focus & the focus was poor, too gross & not expected of Nikon, for some cheaper alternative I would have accepted but not from Nikon. So major setback here is that the zoom after 15 -to 22 is practically useless, for both astronomy & terrestrial observation or it is a defect in mine. Another observation is that the 50mm lense caps are cheap plastic compared to the beautiful eyepiece caps of excellent quality rubber. Also those objective lense (50mm) caps have a split (as the original design)in their strap connector, this may be convenient to load them on to the attached neck strap (of very good quality) however this design will also cause them to fall off while in use. This would need to be looked at or else do not keep the caps on strap. Overall why pay so much for the zoom factor when anything beyond 15x is not worth it. Might as well go for a cheaper 50x50 maybe.
