Great Binoculars
 
I bought the Nikon Action 10x50 binoculars to replace an old "no name brand" pair my father gave me 30 years ago. I didn't use the old ones regularly until we moved to the Gulf coast. The old binoculars were in sad shape so I ordered the Nikon. Wow was I surprised. Bright, clear view, true color, I didn't know binoculars could work so well. The EX Extreme is easy to focus, easy to adjust and light enough to carry around all day. The case that comes with them doesn't provide much protection...

Great optics.
 
Optics are clear and sharp. Because of magnification, astronomy viewing of stars should be done with tripod. Handheld makes objects shaky and with star trails. First night could see M13 (Hercules Cluster) easily.

Great value binoculars
 
After having purchased the 7x35 binoculars from the same series for birdwatching, and being very impressed with their quality, I decided to also try the binoculars with the highest magnification in this series, the 16x50. The large magnification is a good choice to observe things that are far away and not fast moving, e.g. wildlife, or also (distant) plane spotting, or watching ships. A 16x magnification results of course in a much smaller field of view, and image quality, although very good, is...

Jumps into your hand like it lives there.
 
This binocular simply fell into my hand as though it were made for me personally. Love at first feel? Yes!I compared this binocular to several others in the same price range, here is what I found:Fit and finish: Nikon is easily the equal of any Vixen or Pentax or Olympus (I didn't try Canon).Feel: Nikon was by far the best.Optics: Nikon did something clever here. First of all, they gave this one a wider field of view than, for example, the Pentax P...

Very good in this price range. Not perfect.
 
Since it looks like Amazon is consolidating several of the Nikon Binocular reviews into one, this review is for the Nikon Action Extreme (#7245) 10x50 Binoculars. I wish Amazon didn't do this since the specs are much different between the "Action" and "Action Extreme" models. ...Anyway, the Action Extremes are very good binoculars. They are not the best you can buy, but you can buy much worse. Actually, there is only one thing that keeps me from giving the 7245's a 5 Star Rating. The optical coa...

12x50 not as good as expected based on reviews
 
Note updated March 2010: Amazon has now moved the reviews back into separate magnifications and is no longer combining the reviews as they did when I originally wrote this!Note: Amazon is combining reviews for Action Extreme models with 50mm objectives; 7x50, 10x50, 12x50, 16x50 etc.We already had the Nikon Action 8x40 which I think was reasonable quality for $60, but I was somewhat disappointed by the Action Extreme 12x50 I bought when I wanted something waterproof and ...

Superb Optics, Comfortable Depth of Field. Excellent for Raptors, Shorebirds
 
I took the plunge on 10x50's after reading a compelling article on the Cornell Ornithology website.These Nikon Action EX 10x50 binocs are unusually well-crafted for a "low end" product. Their optics are sharp and bright, even at dawn or dusk. Their eye fatigue index approaches 18. Their ergonomics and controls are rugged and smooth. Most of all, the wiggle you'd expect from 10-power binocs are rarely a problem here because the frame is lighter than most products in this price-range. ...

At this price, buy them, but consider a harness
 
A quantum leap up from even name brand binoculars from the big box stores. This is a great deal.I knew I wanted big binoculars to add to the two (I thought) adequate, smaller binoculars I'd used for outdoors. I knew I'd use them everyday from the house to watch wildlife, and only infrequently use them on the trail. Once I'd looked through the Nikons, though, I haven't picked up the others and know that I'll wear myself out carrying these around rather than sacrifice clarity and br...

Excellent Craftsmanship For Budget Sensitive Users
 
For the average user, not needing specialized or unique features in a binocular, this seems to be an excellent choice for general use. The binocular's modest weight should not prove an undue problem for most users. The carrying strap is of acceptable quality as is the carrrying/storage case. Suitable protective caps are provided. Glasses wearers should not expect great frustration with the eyepieces. The binocular feels comfortable and steady in smaller and larger sized hands. Focus adjust...

Best "Bang For The Buck"
 
I have a fair amount of experience with good optics as an avid amateur astronomer. I have a Meade 10" SCT GPS telescope that is used on a regular basis, as well as an 8" reflector scope and really appreciate quality optics. I needed a pair of relatively decent binoculars to use around the rural property I live on.After extensive research and shopping, I settled on the NIKON Action Extreme 10 x 50. The waterproofing was a nice, and important bonus. However, the real pay off is in ...
