Summary: I have had this binocular for quite a while. They offer sharp crisp images at 8x zoom. The zoom is good upto 15x. At 24x too the image is not that dull like other compact zoom binoculars. It produces pretty lit images at 24x as well however one needs a steady hands to hold the binoculars.
Summary: If you are after a high level of flexibility and clear optics, then these binoculars may be for you. I have some Olympus zoom binos, which are very good, but this Nikon is superb. The porro prism offers excellent light-gathering and the focus adjustment is precise.
Summary: Bought these binoculars for bird watching. I was initially surprised by how plasticy these bins were, espcially for the price of nearly £100, but its how they perform that matters and I am not disapointed here.
Summary: The product is lightweight and easy to use, but having had a pair of small 7 x 24 field binoculars for several years we expected the nikon ones to be far superior, but they are o.k. At high magnification the image is poor.
light weight makes it easy to put in a pocket Cons - dim view
24 June 2012
Summary: Pros - compact, light weight makes it easy to put in a pocket Cons - dim view, barely usable on the higher magnfications. Build quality is not robust - after 15 months the magnification dial, which is not that smooth, stuck on the maximum setting and Nikon refused to repair it under warranty.
Summary: Das Fernglas ist leicht, handlich, gut verarbeitet und hat eine schöne Optik. Es lässt sich gut zoomen. Ab einem Bereich um 16 ist es ratsam ein Stativ oder eine feste Auflage zu benutzen. Die Schaerfe und Klarheit ist nach meinen bisherigen Eindrücken sehr gut. Alles in allem gebe ich ein sehr gut.
