Bought these for better bird watching and the clarity is fabulous. Weight very manageable and very easy to use. Adjustable eyes cups very comfortable.
I have had this product for several years and it is impressive. Besides the warranty this item exceeds my expectation for it' construction and build. It is a very solid binoculars and the roof prism is different from the Monarch 3. It does not have a yellowish hue from the silver roof prism. The colors are more true to it's original color. I originally bought this to help me with viewing nature and it can not be beat. much better imaging than many of it's competitors with a wonderful price to boot.
I owned a pair of Nikon ATB Realtree camo 12x42 for a long time, and hunting one day the focus eye cups broke and the prism inside the binoculars came loose and I was no longer able to focus them. I sent them to Nikon to get fixed and they replaced them with the Nikon Monarch 5 12x42 black. The pros: they are lightweight, crystal clear and the image is 100 times better than my old Nikon. They are slightly smaller. I like the feel of them but wish they were camo. The focus knob is really sensitive almost to sensitive.
The cons: They could be a bit brighter in the mornings and evenings, I don't know if its the 12x magnification that makes them a little darker at crucial time, but they are still better than the old Nikon. The other problem i have is the covers it is a good design but they still suck. The bottom eye covers pop out and the top cover is just a joke in its self. I don't understand why binocular companies not just Nikon can't produce a lens cover that is effective. Over all the binoculars are really awesome, I am a avid hunter I hunt all the time in the Mississippi Delta. I hunt ducks, deer, hogs, squirrels, and everything else. I would highly recommend these to anyone and would take them on any hunting trip or sight seeing adventure.
Performed as expected. Happy with my purchase. Would recommend.
Had these for a year, and I love them. Very clear.
I haven't had these long, but I love them. I wear glasses, and for once I've found a pair of binoculars that I don't have to take them off to use! I can't believe the power of them. 20/20 vision and you can see specific single hairs on an animal. Five star!
I love this product!!! I use for sporting events and for birding. It is very easy to use and lightweight. I was kinda worry about making this much of a investment, but you pay for what you get! You will not be dissapointed!
This is a Sure win.I have several Nikon products and this is another Great product - now they can work on a 14 or 16x42, but these are working out to my specs; clear, easy to handle, and element proof!
Very happy with my purchase. Excellent workmanship!!
