Nikon action 16x50 binoculars

Postby CDonoso. on Fri Feb 17, 2012 12:22 pm

Well, from the replie (thank you Jne_K) that i reciebed of my last topic i confimed that zoom binoculars are not an option.
For this reason i will get 16x50 nikon binocular, but again i have to choose betwen nikon action extreme 16x50 or nikon action 16x50.
The reviews in opticsplanet about both of them suggests that Nikon action 16x50 is better than N.A.Extreme.
Without considering water-foogproof of N.A.extreme ¿Is it any optical diference or something else that can explain or support the price diference betwen them?

Expecting your replie

Optically, very little difference. However, the Nikon Action Extreme has much better eye relief than the Nikon Action. If you wear glasses when you observe, be sure to get the Action Extreme. You'll also find the AE to be a better choice if you mount them on a tripod even if you don't wear glasses, because you won't have to get as close to the eyepieces to see a full field of view.
