Nikon Monarch binoculars are impressive....

  • Summary: Clarity after focusing is very good for binoculars under $300.00 Easy to grasp and light weight for hours of usage. My only dislike; it did not come with a strap.It should have... Nikon's legendary positive reputation for excellent optics made me decide to buy them.

Nikon Monarch ATB 12x42 Binocular

jamaulwall, Ebay
23 September 2009
  • Summary: I was looking for a compact, clear, bright, and sturdy set of binoculars. After reading multiple reviews of this product and seeing they had a $50 rebate going on at the time of my purchase I couldn't pass these up. I'm glad I didn't, they are by far the best binoculars I've ever used. They are compact, lightweight, yet sturdy. Best of all, theyare amazing clear and bright. I can't believe the clarity difference between my old Bushnell binoculars and these.

Top Quality Product

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Top quality optics. Smooth adjustments (unlike some of the notchy, fiddly diopter adjustments on compact versions). Solidly built. Conveniently attached lens covers. Wide, comfortable strap. Good price. What's not to like?

  • Summary: These binoculars are excellent quality and value for money, they have optics comparable to much more expensive binoculars and should be your number 1 choice for an all round binocular that will perform perfectly in any weather come rain and shine. They are light enough to be held for long periods of time without any shoulder fatigue or hand shake/wobble, they are also well made and are of strong construction which will i am sure will last for decades before wear and tear...
