what can I expect in edge sharpness Monarch 8x42?
Just bought a pair of Nikon Monarchs 8x42.
Just tried them out and so far look very good except for edge sharpness.
the top is not in focus bottom is little better and sides are fair . Question
Did I get a bad copy or is this normal . Seems to have a sweet spot in center and falls off more then I thought
it would . thanks William

Typically about 75% of the field of view is sharp, falling off rapidly to the edge - this is typical at this price. However, the falloff should be uniform in all directions. If you have one quadrant noticeably worse, I'd suggest getting a repalcement.
