Summary: The Nikon binos are clear, lightweight and easy to focus. They are perfect for my use during moose, deer and raw deer hunting. The climate where I hunt is wet and cold and they function well also with gloves on. It is the best pair of binos I have used.
Summary: My birder friend told me that if I were looking for a pair of binoculars these were perfect for me. High quality, clear and great for people who wear glasses which I do. I have been so happy with these well built and sturdy binoculars that I would highly recommend these to other birders out there.
Summary: I like Nikon optics, and these bino's are as great as the other Nikon products I've acquired. This makes at least the 3rd purchase I've made from Optics Planet, and all have gone flawlessly - the products arrive undamaged and in the time frame stated. I'm a little clutzy with computers, but the staff is very friendly and helpful on the phone, no extra cost. The price was also the best I could find.
Summary: These binoculars are not waterproof. I used them for 2 months (they have a warranty of 25 years, one would think 2 months would not be a problem) and they started getting foggy inside of the lens. To top it all off, Nikon was not willing to refund when I contacted them - who can go into the field with a product that can't last 2 months? Lame product, lame company, not worth the money.
Cons: Not waterproof, not great optics, not as cheap as they should be
Summary: I was amazed when i looked through these, if i didnt see the writing on them i would of swore these were made by a brand 5 times the price. These are perfect for glassing open fields and woodlines all day. I would buy again in a heartbeat!
