Well Worth The Money

Summary: I had a pair of these--earlier model--for years. Great for sport spectating & travel. Dropped them from a bleacher (55th row). Since then have been using some cheesy Bushnells. Glad to be back with the Nikons, there is really no comparison--easy to focus, sharp clear vision.
Summary: I love these binoculars so much that they now stay in my glove box for when I'm out in the country for an impromptu walk. They are very well made - they claim to be shoc proof and water proof though I haven't dropped or soaked them yet to test that. The best thing about them though is the clarity of the optics. They use Nikon lenses which are some of the best in the world. Even though I have the 9x25s it's like looking through much larger binoculars as they are so clear.
Summary: It's 33 years since I bought my last (and first) pair of binoculars which are still going strong and in constant use to view wildlife in the back garden. As I'm getting older I thought it would be helpful to have a pair to keep in the car rather than having to remember to take the one pair with me whenever I go out and might need them. These Nikons are just the job. Compact, lightweight, bright, clear, positive, precise.
Summary: A little heavier than my old Travelight binocs which I accidentally dropped into water. These are waterproof (probably accounting for the additional weight) according to the spec. A bonus for me. They are very sharp and produce a clear image. The build quality is excellent. I use them for bird watching and when I'm carting around my camera these binoculars are easily handled both in terms of weight and size.
Summary: I've had a pair of these binoculars for over ten years and thought they were fantastic. Unfortunately they had a fall which made them quite useless. I bought a replacement pair which of course weren't exactly the same because everything changes over time. Initially I didn't think I would like them, they are a bit heavier and the adjustments are a bit stiffer. However, after giving them a fair trial I think they are just as good as my old pair.
