Bright

  • Excerpt: Good clear view even at dusk, but what surprised me the most was that at dusk, they are brighter than my Swarovski EL's. Not as sharp as the Swarovskis (duh), but brighter. In sunlight, the Monarch 7 image was clear and crisp. Definitely reocmmend especially if you don't want to spend a lot.

Typical Nikon Quality and Performance

Bruce K., B&H Photo
12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Needed a lightweight binocular for a field trip we have scheduled. I had already purchased an Alpen 599 but the limited field of view and my hand movement was too pronounced. Because of the size and weight I decided to keep the Alpen plus my wife can use them (she prefers the compact size). I have 2 older (over 30 years) Nikon compact binoculars and am very pleased with them. To me, Nikon binoculars (the better ones) were always too expensive to justify the cost.

Very Bright and Light Weight!

  • Excerpt: We tried the Monarch 7, 8 x 42, which were great and provided excellent light. But for $100 less, these are considerably lighter and the light is still great! Just took them out birding and they were wonderful. Have never had a great binocular before these, so not much good to compare to, but as newbies, we're feeling very pro. About to order a second pair...now.

excellent small binoculars

  • Excerpt: I bought these to replace an older pair on Monarch 7 (8x42) that I have used for birding for years. I am constant amazed at what a great pair of binos this series is at the price. A recent review of birding binoculars in various price range (available online) done by the Cornell Laboratory for Ornithology rated the Monarch 7 8x42 binos a best buy in their price range.

Great Glass

  • Excerpt: Needed a compact pair of binoculars for bow hunting. Perfect size, lightweight and awesome performance for its size. Bright sharp images, excellent depth and field of view. Very good in low light conditions. These binoculars easily rival my Monarch 5 10x42's. I'm very pleased with the performance and price.

Small, compact design - great for travel

  • Excerpt: Bought these to replace bigger Nikon binoculars (7 x50 Windjammer and 16 x 50 Extreme Pro) to take on a trip to Alaska. I like the fact they are small and lightweight. They seem to be brighter and very sharp in low light. They have Nikon's ED glass in them so I hope when I get out in the field with them to see if the ED glass makes a difference.

Lightweight High Quality Optics

14 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I am an avid birder, and my primary binoculars are a pair of Zeiss 8 x 42 FL's. I purchased the Nikon Monarch 7 8 x 30's for my wife to use on an upcoming Tanzania trip. I haven't had Nikon binoculars before, but while working part-time in a sporting goods store I had the chance to examine many Monarch riflescopes, and was very impressed the optical quality, particularly at their price point.

Briliant and Light

  • Excerpt: Very light, performances are wonderful for such a weight.Brilliant and sharp images. Still, you will never get the comfort of the heavier ones.Probably, one of the best binoculars in the history for birdwatching in long hikes.
