Great equipment

  • Summary: Have used 14x40s for four years and love them. I use them primarily on a small boat and the stabilization is unbelievable. You couldn't dream of this level of magnification without it. I have found these binos to be everything as advertised. They are waterproof and very durable. Aboard my boat they endure some fairly rough treatment in tough conditions and hold up well.

Dont Buy These Binoculars

Adorama
12 July 2013
  • Excerpt: These binoculars are not "waterproof" The battery unit rests on the outside of the unit and internally corroded to the point the AA battery clips dropped out in less than 2 years. This occurred while these binoculars were turned off & sitting in a drawer of the main cabin of an air conditioned 42ft boat. Other cameras & flashlights in the same drawer had no corrosion problems at all.
  • Cons: Not Waterproof, Poor Construction

Not one adverse comment from my rescue service mates who have tried them

  • Summary: I could not believe how how stable these binos are. Probably would have gone up a magnification or two if i had known. Well designed with all the necessary buttons at your finger tips while holding them. Cannot recommend Optic Zone highly enough.

Binoculars don't get better than this.

ebdkc, Ebay
3 August 2012
  • Summary: Excellent optics and the stabilization works well. The refurbished product looks good as new, and at around half the list price it's a bargain. Minor con: bulky, won't fit in your pocket.

Truly Stable at 40X

LPW, Adorama
14 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Fantastic optical stability system. Both on land where it precisely controls hand held jitter, and at sea where it controls jitter and a separate system compensates for vessel motion.
  • Pros: Case included, Close Focus, No "jitter" even at sea, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Very stable view, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: None

Rock Steady Stability at 40X

Eagle Eyed Lloyd, Adorama
7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It's a Nikon, and lives up to their reputation for ease of use, ruggedness, and clear bright images. Stability system provides rock steady images on land AND at sea! I used it, at sea, in Alaska. It compensated for boat motion and hand motion. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Comfortable, Has Case and Wide Strap, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: None

Best Binocular Product I have owned

Herb, B&H Photo
14 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I will be using this product on my boat this coming summer. I have used it on land, and it blows away my other binoculars. (Steiner 7X50 ect). The stabilization capabilities are unbelievable. Most faraway views become almost "Rock Steady" as compared to other units. The only comparison can be made with a unit and tripod arrangement. My only "Con" about this product is the weight.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Heavy

Excellent, especially for marine use

Frank, B&H Photo
13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I needed binocs for use on a boat to eliminate movement, these are perfect. Well worth the money. For land use the fine shake setting is good too but they really shine for marine use.
  • Pros: Waterproof
