  • Excerpt: my wife and I are avid bird watchers. the monarch 5 is good as or better than her older monarch. crystal clear viewing and no eye strain at all. the best feature is the accuracy of the focus wheel. I bought the 10 power and my wife has the 8 power. the 10 power is just as bright as the 8 power. for the price you can not beat the performance. 5 star all the way. thank you b@h for a great price too!

  • Excerpt: I was looking for the best optics on a budget. These<br />binoculars fit the bill! Everything is bright and they show colors and defintition very well. With the ED glass and muli-coatings I see many years of use.

Fabulous value

  • Excerpt: I tried these binoculars out at Bass Pro Shop before ordering them on B&amp;H photo. I knew I wanted them the second I picked them up, but I am not well-versed in binocular lingo, so I asked the opinions of some of my seasoned co-workers before committing to them. I was told that the Monarch 5 8x42s were the best pair of binoculars you could get in this price range, and so far I completely agree.

  • Excerpt: We really like our new bincoculars. We've had Nikons before...and we just wish Nikon would work a bit harder at producing lens covers that stay in place better... Otherwise, nice set of magnified 'eyes'...

Perfect for hunting in central Texas!

  • 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.
  • Pros: Awesome clarity and perfect size!
  • Cons: NONE!

  • Excerpt: Binoculars used for birding and provides good definition, color clarity, and decent in low light. Like the light weight, clarity &amp; sharpness of image that is needed for bird identification at a distance. No negatives so far.

Great Improvement

Riffo, reviews.nikonsportoptics.com

  • 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.
