Summary: I recently bought a pair of these binos and I love them. The low light capabilities are amazing. When its dark I can very easily see things through the binoculars that I barely see with my bare eyes. They are very light weight and have very good glass in them. The only problem I have had is with the twist out eye cups. I don't think it is a manufacturer problem because I got some sand in them now one of them won't stay out.
Summary: Best I've ever owned for the following reasons: - Crystal clear image, even with very little light. - Rubberized body coating makes for a confident grip, even in wet conditions. - Narrow compact design. - Adjustable eye pieces, when wearing sun glasses. Combined with an S4Gear lockdown harness, it's been the perfect combo for biking and bird watching. ONLY gripe is with the eye piece lens cover accessory. - It is too loose and falls off with the slightest bump.
Summary: I'm a conservation biologist I bought these binoculars to use in the field. I am presently working in a pretty open environment (long leaf pine/wire grass forest). This environment shouldn't be that tough on field gear, but my first day out with my Nikon ProStaff 7 the protective coating on the lens's started to peel off.
Pros: Comfortable to use, Crisp Colors, Lightweight
Summary: Picked these up the other day for my Birthday and wow they are awsome. Great warranty, but the things that sold me on these were Waterproof, easy to use and focus, great with eye glasses. The detail and clarity is outstanding. Could not be happier with them. Use them for hunting, camping, and sporting events. Nikon is a great product you wont be disapointed.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: If it had been possible I would have given them three and a half and not four. The binoculars are very good and although they are larger than I really wanted its ok. BUT the real "pain in the butt" are the lens caps. I have seen other comments to this effect so its not something new but a big negative in the sale of this item. Nikon what were you thinking of to put such rubbish on a good product.
Summary: needed some binos but baulked at the idea of paying top money for european quality, was looking around for some mid range, spotted these and at the excellent price were a no brainer, if they weren't up to it i hadn't lost too much. i can live without the last 20 minutes of twilight at this price.
