    Excellent value – bright, sharp, fast focus, lightweight. I use them for birding. My only grumble would be the lens caps – the rear ones are loose and the front caps awkward to stow, but I knew that and bought them anyway because they are such good binos.

    You asked for feedback on my purchase. I have just returned from 3 months in Africa and I LOVED LOVED LOVED my nikon binoculars. Thank you SO SO SO much for your advice and help. And I am so glad I didn’t get the Swarovski – so much more costly and I don’t know if they could be That much better. I did heaps of bird watching and they were a joy –
    I Love them – thank you all

    The Nikons were the last touch of my retirement plan. A home on a hectare of bush with flowering natives. I don’t even have to go outside, just take the Nikons from room to room. So far all my bird viewing has been done through a camera lens, time to relax a bit and just enjoy watching. My Nikons have proved ideal, with the added bonus of not even having to wear my glasses


  8. Judy

    Light weight, terrific field of view, clarity and light capturing properties. Yet another great Nikon, but i do feel sad to pension the old ones off after all these years of faithful service.

    I bought these binoculars about 6 months ago and have used them when bird watching, even in wet weather. They have a good weight and are wonderful for overall binocular use. They are sturdy and not that hard to use.

    I have a fetish for binoculars I must admit. This was my 4th pair and I bought it here 5 weeks ago. I already had Nikon’s before so I know they are one of the best and for a very reasonable price. I had the chance to test all 4 models: Prostaff 8×42, Prostaff 10×42, Monarch 8×42 and Monarch 10×42. This model – PROSTAFF 8×42 – is the best one you can get for under $500 and here’s why:

    1. 8×42 is a perfect balance between wide FOV and large lenses. This model specifically is much lighter and very easy to carry around.

    2. Waterproof, fogproof and shockproof so if you’re an adventurer like myself you will appreciate these features. Some cheaper models claim to have these features but in real life they are not 100% durable. I go birding and on Safaris so I prefer to spend another $100 and go for quality.

    3. Nikon optics, what can i say.. You just have to look through these binoculars to understand. I compared them to my others and can notice a much brighter and sharper image every time. These by the way are similar image wise to the Nikon MONARCH but cheaper!. Slightly longer design that’s all so absolutely no major difference as far as I could tell.

    4. Fully multicoated lenses, good eye relief, good design all together.

    5. Price – they are mid-range (and on good discount here) but quality wise they are simply tops.

    I did a-lot of research guys- everybody loves this model. My only decision was between these ones or the 10×42. I got these ones because u can get a wider image which is important for me as I scan large bushy areas so I can’t go with too much magnification. I already dropped these, hit them, got them soaking wet and god knows what else! They can seriously take a beating. I just want to say that if you have 1,000-$2,000 go for Leica but otherwise these are 90% the same!! Good value for money for sure.
