Summary: I didnt know much about binoculars so I did my research. I literally flipped a coin to see whether I would buy the Monarch 5 or 7. I ended up buying the 5's and saved money. I cannot imagine the Monarch 7's being much better than this. The low light visibility is great with these. Thats what I was really focused on because I stay late in my bow/rifle stand. I was used to using a cheap pair of bushnells from the 90's. These lenses make hunting so much more fun.
Summary: I use a Nikon camera for nature photography and have been very satisfied with their products. I use the binoculars for "spotting" mostly. Whether shooting and spotting my array or checking wildlife shots for photographing, I could have spent more, but I am pleased with the performance of my Nikon choice for what I utilize them for.
Excerpt: I was looking for a moderately price pair of binoculars. I have had a pair of Nikon binoculars for 20 years or so but wanted to get something up to date.I wear glasses so I wanted a pair with good eye-relief. This pair is outstanding. They are very easy to set up. The focus is very easy to adjust.I am very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I previously owned Nikon Aculon 8x42, my first pair for birding. They are very good, but a bit too heavy and I thought I could look for something a little better. My selection of binoculars 1st depended on the interpupillary distance being small enough for my eyes. I thought I could do research online, but unfortunately specs don't always include this measurement and sometimes the models change (tried Eagle Optics Ranger and their older model would fit me, but the newest...
Excerpt: I needed binoculars with a narrow interpupillary distance. Although the specification says 56 mm for the minimum IPD, it looks like the actual IPD is 55 mm which worked out great for me. These binoculars are also lighter than most 8 x 42 binoculars. The fog proof feature is also great. The one thing that I wish it had was a larger field of view, but that might be impossible to have without compromising the other great features of this binocular.
Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: I bought this product as I was in the market for a top quality binocular. The only thing I dislike is the front eye cups as they are too loose. It's no zeiss but at the price there's nothing better.
Summary: I have had many pairs of binoculars. These Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 are excellent. I have owned many more expensive binos that were not nearly as clear and bright as these. I have not found a pair of glasses as good as these for the money.
Excerpt: These are great binoculars, the optics are wonderful. the eye piece lens caps suck. Not sure what to do about that, Thinking about making my own,I'm Happy. B and H was fast and efficient as usual.
