Summary: Very good value for money. A little heavy & bulky, but for the price give excellent results. I use them mainly for bird watching, and find them very satisfactory. You would have to pay quite a lot more to get any that are significantly better. There are Nikon 10 x 40s that are also good, and a bit smaller, but you sacrifice quite a bit if light with these, and I would then go for the 8x32s.
After reading other reviews thought these were worth a go.

Summary: Very pleased they are comfy to hold have a neck strap and a soft spongey case and are crisp and clear to use. If I had to be critical then the lens caps are a bit of a faf and likely to get lost,but really to get such a nice clear set of bins for this money is very pleasing and hard to believe.
Summary: I bought the Nikon Binoculars to replace an aging 10X50 Miranda pair which I regarded as OK but my wife found to be lacking in vision clarity. What a difference when we used the Nikon product. Sharp in focus images, I have a Nikon Digital Camera which serves me well. My only regret is that Nikon products are mainly manufactured in China or other Far East Counties. This is a reasonably priced quality product.
Summary: Whilst fishing in northern India my guide Sanjew started to use this model of binoculars to view birds.I have never been able to use binoculars properly in the past,always having to close one eye or the other,sorry do not know the technical term.Basically my two eyes never seem to come together properly when looking through both eye viewers.When Sanjew asked if i wanted to have a look, i expected the same problem.
Superb value & excellent optics for not that much money.

Summary: Lets not forget these binoculars are produced by one of the most respected camera manufactures in the world, a manufacturer that uses their own glass and not sourced from another company. On enquiring in my local professional camera shop I was informed that even these Nikon binoculars have Nikons on optical glass which for the money is remarkable.
Summary: I was expecting better from Nikon optics however these binoculars suffer significant colour aberration. i.e. Everything down the left of the field of view has a yellow shadow and everything down the right has purple. Back to Amazon they go...
