Excerpt: These binoculars seem very well made. They feel sturdy and precise. The views are very sharp. Even at night, stars were resolved into points of light without any aberrations. They are also easy and comfortable to hold and adjust. One big selling point for me was that they have a 8.3 degrees of view, the largest I've seen in 8x40 and similar binoculars. Unfortunately they are quite large and heavy despite their relatively modest 40mm objective lenses.
Excerpt: I bought these for my wife for when we go birding. I'm now jealous of my wife. For the price these are great. They're easy to focus, bright, and aren't too heavy. The field of view is large, making spotting easy. The only down side is a slight bit of chromatic aberration.
Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: This replaces two Tasco 7x35 binoculars that were over 25 years old. Wow...times have changed. I use these for bird watching and am very happy with this product. A shade heavy from what I am used to but I think the weight helps steady it. The only thing I can complain about is I wish they had a shoulder strap for the carrying case, otherwise it is a great pair of glasses for what I use them for.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Simple To Adjust, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I purchased the 8X40 binoculars for an upcoming trip to some national parks. I've never owned or used binoculars before; so I have nothing to base my comments on other than I really like the binoculars. They are probably just what I need, and they seem to be well made. The binoculars were recommended to me by a friend who owns a pair of Nikon binoculars. After trying out the binoculars (looking at deer in my backyard), I kind of wish I had a built in camera.
Summary: Very easy to use. I live on the beach, so I mostly use the binoculars to view cruise ships, birds and fishing boats. I like it very much. Very clear and uncomplicated. Very happy I purchased it.
Excerpt: These Binocular are great for what I purchased them for. Bird Watching. Easy to focus. If you wear eyeglasses they are perfect for the user. The only disadvantage that I have with these Binoculars, they are a little heavy.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Nikon products are excellent, and this is a perfect example

Summary: The size, weight, and clarity are excellent. Nikon makes excellent products at a resonable price. I own Nikon hunting scopes, spotting scopes, range finder, and camera. I am a working middle class guy that can afford Nikon..
Excerpt: My fiancee has gotten into bird watching at the house. Bought it for her birthday. She loves it. Lot better than the inexpensive one I have. Great clarity and easy to focus. The draw back is distortion on the edge of the lens. Disappointed since its a nikon. I have their camera and know their quality. Still good buy for the money.
Pros: Close Focus, Strong Construction, Waterproof
Excerpt: Want to see anything at a distance? On the open water, in the mountains, animal watching, sporting events, concerts, sunbathers. High quality, comfortable, easy to use, your friends will want to by a pair. For the price, these are the Best binoculars - hands down!
