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

  • 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).

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.

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.

  • 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.

7 January 2014
  • Excerpt: These binoculars have outstanding light transmission, color rendition and clarity (resolution). The build quality is excellent, and they are light enough to carry around all day. My only real problem with them, and the reason I didn't give them 5 stars, is the noticeable chromatic aberration along...
