Living in the upper Mid West, the landscape's heavily forested and glaciated.It's time to see what I was missing.Nikon lens/prisms are World renowned,...and for the dollar, arguably the best.I wanted Roof Prism binoculars, so that made the decision easier.Magnification is a preference factor, I chose 10X magnification after trying a family members 8X(more on this later)+ Trailblazers became the logical choice because of the larger 50mm object...

Great general purpose binocular
 
I have been in the military for several years now and have come to use many binos/optics in my line of work. Leupold and Steiner being the majority of all military enhanced optic makers. Most professional military binos are 8x42mm. However, it isn't always enough, I decided to spend the frugal money on these Nikon's ATB's and have been throughly pleased.The Image quality alone shows Nikon's tried and true dedication to superior lens quality.The Nikon's large objective len...

Light weight and easy to handle
 
I recently purchased these binoculars after comparing against Nikon Monarch binoculars. The Nikon's well-known model, Monarch binoculars (8 x 42mm) are somewhat smaller, compared to this Trailblazer (50mm model). Since I use these binoculars for astronomy and star gazing, I need binoculars that have a large aperture as possible. Besides, I wear the eye-glasses. So, I wanted binoculars that have a longer eye-relief, also. This model has 19.6mm (0.78") eye-relief. After considering all the ab...

Very good for the price
 
I'm happy with these bino's. They are a bit big but they have better eye relief than my brothers 2 1/2 the price monarchs 10x42's and I need that because I wear glasses and the field of view is very good. The single eye right side diopter adjustment is harder than it should be and thats why I'm not giving it five stars. Nikon said you should only need to adjust this once and leave it alone but I've been hunting for over 40 years and used many a bino and when you are looking at distances that var...

disapointment
 
I purchased these binoculars from Amazon based on the Nikon name and customer reviews. I suppose my expectations were too high. The optics were respectable, with well lit imagery. The disappointing part was the made in China construction, they felt cheep. They were bulky and heavy and the focus adjuster felt crappy. I returned them, and purchased the Bushnell Legends, they are constructed in China as well, but they are very nice for the money. The glasses feel great and work exceptionally well, ...

Not a bad bet
 
The camera body is very good. The lense looks properly aligned as well. However, I noticed anistropic chromatic aberrations prominent esp at the edges. Thus unless your subject is right in middle of your view, you might see aberrations on sharp edges. However the product is very good and for a amateur its recommended.

Chromatic aberration up the wazoo
 
Simple. It was an open-and-shut case. I got it out, tried it for a few seconds. Its chromatic aberration made my head spin. I shoved it back immediately and sent it back.By the way, there are too many pockets that may retain water. I wouldn't call this water-resistant, let alone waterproof.This thing sure made it easy for me to decide.I ordered a 10 x 20 Zeiss Conquest. Obviously, the two belong to two different categories, but the image quality of the Zeiss m...

Looks good. Feels good. Is great.
 
I like the way these binoculars feel in my hand. Even better, I like what I see when I look through the lenses. Have to remember to adjust the eye pieces but after that it's pretty smooth sailing. Only got them a week or so ago but took them out bird watching recently and it was a delight. Liked that I could use them with sunglasses and without. Images were all sharp and clear. And it was easy to focus and follow birds as they flew across the sky. Last night I brought them to the Hollywood Bowl ...

These are a real value
 
I am a hunter - so seeing clearly what I am looking at is very important to me. When I was looking at these, I was upgrading from some pretty cheap,russian-made binoculars. I examined a wide range of options from yet more Russian-made binoculars all the way up to some pretty nice Leica optics. These were probably 90% of what I saw in the Leica for about 10% of the price.I've had them out in the field already and I am even more satisfied now that I made the right decision. They mi...

Amazing Clarity
 
Took awhile to get used to the eye piece adjusters but these binoculars are really bright and clear.
