Great binocular, excellent warranty
 
First- the negative point. My first pair fogged up on the inside after a couple of weeks. I took them back to the store where I got them, but could have sent them back to Nikon just as easily, thanks to the excellent warranty. Point is- save the box and receipt. It is worth noting that I haven't heard of anyone else who had theirs fog up, I suspect that I had the bad luck of getting the one bad pair. Nikon has a no-fault 25 year warranty anyways. Covers are pretty bad too, but they had to ...

You get more than you pay for
 
Pros:- Price for value ratio is enough when deciding to buy this product.I do think, however, that all those 5-star reviews are a bit misleading in a way that they are biased by the price/performance ratio. The truth about optics is that $300-optics will always remain $300 worth of optics. After reading all the reviews I admit I did expect more then I got, but just barely. Surely enough, I am far from being disappointed.- Small size and lightweight.Considering...

Excellent
 
I brought these about four months ago and love them. The main reason I brought them was for bird watching. I spent a bit of time researching, as I wanted a good pair of binoculars. They have a really nice fell and weigh 689grams with the strap on. I've dropped them once and there was no problem. Not long after I got them I took them with me on a Safari to Mali, Africa. The first evening I used them I was standing on a hill looking into a valley while the sun was going down. When I looked through...

probably the best you can get for that price
 
An excellent binocular. Great color definition, pretty bright an wide field of view, soft and rapid focussing central knob, good close focus distance and nice and practical lens caps. They also have a nice ruber covering which feels very good on your hands and may be an effective shock absorber. The case is also ok and another great feature: they weigh only 620 grams.I finally picked up these binoculars from the Eagle Optics Ranger Platinum 8x42, which I have used before getting a ve...

Fantastic value! Excellent Binoculars!
 
I purchased the Monarch's to replace an aging pair (30 years old). The first thing that came to mind when I first used them was...WOW! The clarity is outstanding...especially for the price.Many prior reviewers complained about the lens caps. I personally find them very functional and not at all what was portrayed. Perhaps I have an upgraded model, but the objective lens caps are attached to the barrel and one needs to simply unsnap the covers and twist them towards the middle of the ...

Performance at a reasonable price
 
I really like these binoculars. They are light, bright, work well with eyeglasses and I give five stars because they are excellent value. I bought these binoculars for a nature trip in the Amazon and I use them in the back yard, on hikes and occasionally at the symphony or opera. My sister, an ornithologist, told me to get the most expensive binoculars I could afford. To her binoculars are a professional tool but I really didn't want to afford a thousand bucks like she was suggesting. She a...

Tack sharp, lightweight and well worth owning.
 
I did alot of research before deciding on this pair. As an experienced photographer, optical quality was my top priority.I originally purchased them for hiking and long range mountain scanning in southern Oregon, and while initially perplexed between the 10X or 8X version; I found the extra sharpness of the 8X resolution negated the need for a 10X magnification, because they rendered so much detail.With the 8X, I spotted a fire lookout station that I'd never seen before, ...

Bargain of the century?
 
Bought these bins recently, they really are excellent, very easy to use, good feel, amazing light gathering and reproduction, and only 1 and 1/2 pounds. If you read Cornell Lab of Ornithology review, there is only 1 set of binoculars under 1000 dollars that beat these,(and they are 6x lenses not really suitable for general birding.)Everything about them feels and works like 1000 dollar lenses with two exceptions, the lens cap and raingaurd, the former in particular would be a disgrace on 50 dol...

lovely lovely viewing
 
i have been waiting for a pair of these for almost a year, and got them just 3 weeks ago. just a great piece of optics: the weight is right (not too light to shake easily, not to heavy to tire the arms), balance is great, clear with an amzing depth of field. if you are a freak of optic tests you might notice the slightest traces of both chromatic aberration (border of dark objects on light background in extreme contrast) and spherical (straight lines slightly curve at the edge of the view)- but ...
