Excellent binoculars!!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 15, 2011

Excellent quality for the price, sharp, bright & clear. First impression as clear as my Zeiss Diascope ,
Its perfect for bird watching and is very bright

Before getting the monarch i brought and tried many others below $200 mark from different vendors but none of them could come close to the monarch. I would say its the best you can get in this price range

I have compared the new di-electric (7294) and the old model with silver coatings (7430). I found the new model gives true colors while the old one had yellowish tint. The di-electric prism coating is excellent for low light situation and for star gazing, in fact i like it more than my 15x70 astronomical binocular for star gazing , the view is more wide ,clear and stable . Even though objective is 42 it gathers good amount of light in low light situation may be has to do with di-electric coatings


The only Cons : Objective cover is attached to the body and gets in way while stargazing , I thought writing of dialectic coating was embossed but it turned out to be a sticker and has fallen off , but these are definitely not a deal breaker for such nice pair of binoculars

Pros: Di-electic coating ,phase coating, Very Good clarity
Cons: Obecjective cover gets on way while stargazing...

Very nice for the money

I bought these for bird watching and I'm very happy with them. There are higher quality ones out there, but those demand a much higher price. These definitely do the job for someone looking to save money. I would buy them again. ...

quality problems

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 19, 2010
the optics are excellent but the eyepiece adjustment for eyeglasses fell off almost as soon as I used these. We also bought a 10x40 pair and they had the same problem within two weeks of use. We had older nikon monarch binocs we bought in 2006 and they were great but were stolen and these were their replacement. I think there is a quality controll problem here and I wonder how well these will hold up long term....

Impressive

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on March 18, 2010
I was looking for high-end optics for bird watching but didn't want to spend $1,000 plus for great optics. After reading reviews and after finding the Nikon 8X42mm Monarch ATB binocular at a dealer, so I could check them out first, I was sold on them. The OpticsPlanet purchase price was the lowest I could find anywhere and they were immediately shipped, with free shipping. After using them now for about a month, I could not be more satisfied.
Pros: optics resolution, quality
Cons: lens caps...
