great for bird watching

by Percival, from United States, AZ Written on September 6, 2014
Easy to operate, light weight, good value and good optics. The kind of quality you would expect from Nikon. Great for bird watching or sporting events. I took these binoculars with me on a day hike and really enjoyed them. They allowed me to stand off at a good distance and still observe the wildlife without disturbing them....

Outstanding performance and value

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 3, 2011
Bought mine about four years ago for hunting and have been very pleased. They are a bit bulky and heavier than more streamlined roof prism design, but the trade off is super wide field of view, clarity and most importantly outstanding light transmission at dawn and dusk. Have had several buddies w/ MUCH more expensive glass remark that theirs can't compare to my $150 Nikons!
Pros: Great light transmision in low light. Super wid field of view.
Cons: A bit bulky for my hands- one handed focus (while holding rifle) is a bit tricky ....
Would recommend: Yes

Nikon rulezz!!! :)

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 24, 2010
I bought these binoculars for hunting and sightseeing. To say that I'm satisfied is to say nothing - I'm really happy.

Wide field of wiev. Picture is clear and without aberrations. Colors are vivid. Even in dusk or on a break of dawn you can see things easily and clear.
Body is sturdy. Grip is very comfortable. Adjustments easy and intuitive. User manual comprehensive.
I really like eyecups design - in closed position they allow you to use binoculars while wearing sunglasses or prescription glasses; when eyecups are in retracted position they place your eyes at correct eye relief.
What I don't like is the design of objective covers - they tend to slip off the neckstrap and can be easily lost.
May be a bit heavy and bulky for long hunting on feet when you carry with you many other items and equipment, but picture quality and sturdiness is definitely worth this little inconvenience.

For $100 that I've paid for DEMO/Open BOX piece I consider it a bargain! Unmatched price/quality imho. By the way I didn't find any traces of use or wear&tear on binoculars upon receiving. The only thing that saddened me a bit was 90-day limited warranty for Nikon Factory Remanufactured product instead of Nikon's lifetime warranty. But being the long time user of other Nikon products I do not think that the need in warranty repairs will ever arise.

Highly recommend.
Pros: Bright clear picture, excellent value for your money
Cons: Maybe a little bit heavy and bulky for hunting on feet...
Would recommend: Yes

good&fair WP 8x field BINO for 130$

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 18, 2010
One of the best field 8x WP bino on the market for less than 130$. Though the range of dioptry tuning might not fit EACH&ANY viewers eyes, but for the most of viewers - will be the perfect choice. Also the ergonomics and the caps-not-able-to-loose are good features.
Pros: tough, with metal parts, wide range field, ergonomics
Cons: dioptry tuning feature might not fit some viewers eyes...
Would recommend: Yes

Nikon 8x40 Action Extreme Waterproof Binoculars 7238

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 28, 2010
In the past I thought the binoculars I had purchased were quite good for the price paid. I was wrong! One look through these Nikon Action Extremes and there was no comparison.

Sure they cost more than my old ones, but not that much, especially from Optics Planet, $125US, here in Australia, $599A which is about four times more than I wanted to spend. So for me, a great bargain, even with the exchange rate.

I have used them for Bush walking, bird watching and out in the boat. I have found them easy to locate objects with the wide field of view. They are also great in low light conditions.

Delivery time was as stated by Optics Planet, 10 days and that included a "Long Weekend" here.

Overall, Very Happy and would highly recommend.
Pros: Light weight, comfort, clarity, value for money
Cons: Lens caps a bit ordinary and tend to fall off...
Would recommend: Yes

Nikon 8X40 Binoculars

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on April 14, 2010
I was really surprised at the clarity of these binoculars. I have pair of high quality, high priced binoculars that are no better than these Nikons. I especially like the fact that you can mount these on a tripod for stability.
Pros: Waterproof, fogproof and shockproof...
Would recommend: Yes
