Nikon Monarch 10x42 DCF

3 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Monarch had been considered to be one of the better nature observation instruments for many years. Unfortunately, a lot of better rival products have been launched on the market recently and they have endangered the position of the Japanese tycoon very seriously.
  • Pros: light and handy casing made of polycarbonate resin reinforced by glass fibre,, good quality of prisms and antireflection coatings,, well-corrected coma and astigmatism,, slight chromatic aberration,, low brightness loss at the edge of the field,, sharp image already from 1.8 metres.
  • Cons: too high distortion,, the image at the edge of the field could have been sharper,, distinctly truncated exit pupils.

  • Conclusion: Overall these Nikon Monarch ATB 8x42 waterproof binoculars are quality optics at a competitive price, this is something I think Nikon set out to achieve and have done it well. The result being that they are some of the best selling binoculars in their class.
