Nikon 8.5 x 45 Series Monarch X Binoculars

The Monarch X have been out (or at least advertised) for a while, yet I have yet to see a review of these. How do they compare with other binocuolars in the same price range? Are they better optically than the Monarchs or is the increase in price simply a reflection of their larger size and open bridge design?

Happy New Year!

They are more expensive for both reasons. My Monarch Xs are clearer, brighter, and have better edge to edge resolution than my Monarchs. The new design costs more money, also. The Xs are very good, but certainly are a far cry from the Premiers or the Edge series.
