Summary: Got them for Christmas and they are much clearer than the other ones I was using. List price seemed a little steep for the quality but work just fine for what I use them for. Neckstrap is very comfortable and the lense caps were much more convenient than other caps/covers on some others I've tried. Not the best out there but I would recommend them to others.
Summary: These are awesome binoculars for the money. The clarity is amazing and the size is perfect for bringing along on a hunt. I have zero complaints! I have been able to size up a deer so much better using these than previous binoculars or a scope alone. Nikon products have been the answer for me on several occasions and these are no exception! Recommend these for anyone looking for great deal! Also, Opticsplanet.com is great to deal with.
Summary: I recently had my Monarch ATB replaced with this new Monarch, and I am happy to say this is a very solid improvement. No chromatic aberrations that plagued my original binoculars. Build quality also seems to be significantly improved as well. Bright viewing. Focus knob is a bit stiff-this may change with use. Kind of heavier than it seems-which testifies to a better build.
Summary: purchased nikon 12x42 binoculars to replace a pair of 12x50"s made by u.s.a optic manufacturer,that twist up eye cup broke for the second time in two years.nikon eye cups are sturdier and clarity is good.hunted at dusk in low light conditions nikons performed o.k.but prefer larger objective.overall nikon monarch 5 is a well built product for the price.
Summary: I bought the Monarch 5 after looking through my friend's Monarch 3. They are both great!!! Not sure I can tell the difference (if you want to save a little). Lightweight, comfortable, and great resolution! I would not buy another binocular! I've looked at the other "expensive" brands.....I find these comparable.
