Customer Reviews

Very happily using these for bird watching! Very nice. These were a gift for my Wife for bird watching. She does not like to go hiking into the woods but prefers to stay near the car. These binoculars give here the "reach" to see the birds without having to walk long distances to get close. She likes to use them on a monopod, especially when she is using high magnification.They provide a clear "crisp to the edge" of the field of view.Note that these have a "close focus" of 49 feet. For astronomy purposes or many sports and outdoor uses this may not be an issue but for bird watching many people would prefer something more around 12 to 20 feet. However, for my Wife, this is not an issue.Also note that these have a field of view of only 3.9 degrees at 10X. Compare this to a typical 10X50 which would be around 6 degrees. Again, my wife is fine with this but if you are expecting something like 6 degrees these may not meet your expectations. Just something you get used to.I would recommend these to friends. 5Perfect mounted on a tripod. These are great, and perfect for whale watching. Just lightweight enough to hold, but also sturdy. We mounted them on a tripod, and they actually came WITH the mounting hardware. 5I recommend getting another pair I got these for deer hunting in the Eastern Sierra. I was disappointed by the poor image quality compared to my Nikon Monarch 7 10x42. At the high magnifications I found it very difficult to look through the lenses for any length of time. Eventually I put these away and went back to using the Monarchs. I plan to return them. 2Excellent binocs SUPER pleased with these. I am a tour guide in National Parks and this year Denali. These were instrumental in spotting and viewing the wildlife. Super crisp. Always received compliments on their quality when guests borrowed them. AND they're durable - I dropped them I don't know how many times and they are still in tip top shape. 5Great product... grey market warranty? Great pair of binoculars. Bright clear images across all zooms. Seem well built. Not too heavy, not too late. Even the lens caps, strap and included tripod mount are top notch and what I expected from a Nikon product. Only issue is the warranty appears to be grey-market... that is non-US as all the warranty centers listed within the warranty paperwork are in Europe, Africa and Japan. USA is not listed. Hopefully there will be no warranty issue. Returned a similar pair of Bushnell's and these are might and day better. 5Great Binoculars for the price - clean and bright optics but with some fringing zoomed max. The binoculars are well made and the optics are great. Compared directly to a previous pair of 12x binoculars or a different but popular brand these appear brighter by nearly 1 stop at 12x. The 1 stop brightness seems to extend close to 16x mark after which they lose perhaps 1/2 a stop of light. Having the ability to go to 22x is great but at that magnification I observed a little bit of purple fringing and aberration on the edges of high contrast subjects - not a dealbreaker but just something to be aware of. For the photographers amongst you, these are not at par with the high cost high magnification camera lenses in terms of optics but then they cost just a fraction of what those cost and yet come close (when magnified unto 16x). In the 18x-22x range I would compare them to basic kit lenses of lower end consumer grade cameras. Overall I would rate then as great considering their relatively low cost (when compared to camera lenses). 4I usually don't leave reviews but: I had read one very good review where they had stated that they were not binocular experts, but went on to say that they had bought several pairs of binoculars over the years, that didn't have the clarity that they had expected, until they bought these. Their review compelled me to write my review!! I agree with them 100% these binoculars are of very good quality, you feel it in the weight at a solid but fairly light 33 oz. ( or roughly 2 lbs. 1 oz.) and rubber armored! I have had several pairs of binoculars myself, and when you zoom in and refocus you just can't get them to come in clear unless you back off the zoom a bit then they will become clear. So what good is zoom if they're not going to be clear when zoomed in all the way. Well good news for the folks that bought these, because these are crystal clear while zoomed all the way in!!! Also if you focus these in while zoomed in all the way, as you back the zoom off they will stay focused! Also what is not mentioned is these binoculars come with a neck strap, a padded case that has a belt loop, so you can ware it on a belt up to 2.5 inches wide, and lens covers, along with the tripod adapter that is mentioned.I would definitely recommend these to anyone!! 5Up Close and Personal These binocs rock! I had a smaller pair from a different manufacturer but wanted to go 'bigger'I am an amateur photographer (NIkon DSLR) and really enjoy photographing wildlife. Particularly birds of prey.But birds of prey are sometimes shy and also nest and sit in high places. These bad boys will zoom in to where you need to goThey are a bit heavy, but that's the price you pay for the extra power (channeling Tim Allen. . . UUUUGGHHHH..power)I saw another review complaining about a sometimes wavy image. But when you are viewinglong distance heat waves are going to be a factor. That's not the spec's fault. That''s just natureI've really enjoyed them so far. And Nikon makes top notch products 5CAN'T GET PAST THE SMELL As soon as I opened the box and removed the binoculars from the enclosed plastic the smell was overwhelming. From what I could tell from my VERY limited usage (approx 3 minutes) it seems put together well, the focus was sharp although the adjustment was somewhat rough. I'm not sure what they make this item out of but the chemical ingredients are dangerous. I can't give a definitive review because the odor was making me sick. This is a prime example of a Chinese made item manufactured without any product quality scrutiny/ over site at best. At worst it's intentional without any concern for the purchaser of this product. I have Nikon scopes and find them to be excellent. This is made of some cheap rubber/ plastic material that gives off a horrendous and probably toxic odor. 3BIG NAME NIKON PLACED ON A Quality-SOCCER-MOM PAIR OF LONG EYES ***I am in favor of big name brand manufacturers designing and building products for the average consumer in a less than pro standard budget. However, Nikon is associated with Japan's uncompromised quality, build an precision. In this particular case, they nust placed their big name on a Quality Chinese pair of long eyes. No Nikon glass, and no Nikon precision manufacturing standards.Don't get me wrong, if you are an outdorsman, you could still use them, but don't expect a true Nikon performance rivali g tbe Big German and Austrian names.Soccer Moms should be so very happy and content with these binoculars. They come in a mid level elegant case, but unfortunately not very secure. It can open accidentally if you're not careful. Bird watchers also will find it useful, but only in the lowest powdr setting. The Zoom design, anyway, is not all that great. No precision and likely unreliable for anything beyond the most marginal use.All in all, they are great on a generic name, but marginally OK when you expect a Nikon optical product.One thing to consider, however, if you, as I, decide to feturn it and invest in a German name; You will pay at least five fold the price. I have a need for the German name Extra Low Dispersion glass, and the precision along with the indistructible build quality, therefore, It is well worth my investment to go the German route.*** 3
