Conclusion: A record-breaking score in our test (no other pair of binoculars, tested by us so far, has reached a result over 150 points) and the lack of flaws that could be put in the ‘cons’ section are an explicit proof what kind of equipment we deal with here. If you don’t want to compromise on anything this set of binoculars is definitely for you.
Pros: very solid and sealed casing,, high transmission,, perfectly sharp image throughout the whole field of view,, chromatic aberration splendidly corrected,, very low astigmatism,, slight coma,, negligible distortion,, low brightness loss on the edge of the field,, nice exit pupils on black background,, good whiteness rendition,, perfect blackening inside inner tubes,, wide IPD range,, high quality of prisms and coatings.
Conclusion: Compared to other top of the range binoculars, I would say that the Nikon EDG 10x42 binoculars are priced pretty well. If you take this into account with their excellent, class equalling but not class beating optical performance and their quality construction with all the features you would expect to find in high end optics, I would say that they make excellent value for money.
