Conclusion: The comparison of the tested lens’s pros and cons, one glance at its price tag, the results it got in our tests and the performance and prices of its rivals – all these show clearly what kind of instrument you deal with here. The Nikon 8x32 SE corrects all optical aberrations well or very well. Additionally, as most of top-of- the- range Nikons, it provides a very flat field of view which is almost perfectly sharp to the very edge.
Pros: solid, handy casing, very comfortable to hold,, good transmission,, excellent whiteness rendition,, low chromatic aberration,, very low coma,, slight astigmatism,, sharp image practically to the very edge of the field of view,, low brightness loss on the edge of the field,, high quality of prisms and coatings.
Cons: the instrument is not waterproof and it is not nitrogen-filled,, too many flares near prisms.
