      Binoculars a "must" on safari

      While in Kruger National Park in South Africa, I had the most remarkable experience of being able to look directly into the eyes of a young leopard who was perched very high up in a tall tree. That moment alone made the purchase of these binoculars worth every penny that I spent on them. Even though many of the amazing birds and wildlife that we had the privilege of seeing on safari were, relatively speaking, close to our vehicle, having these binoculars made the up-close experienc all the more intimate. Nikon's 8 x 42 binocular was perfect for our purposes.

      For many years, I use Bushnell's to watch birds. But this Nikon ProStuff 3S has much better Len and Build quality with reasonable price. I wear glasses so it takes sometimes for me to get used to it. One reason is the user guide for glasses wearer does not work for me, kind misleading. That makes me deduct one star from it. Once I self-learned how to adjust, it has no problem at all. I like this binoculars.

      This is my second pair of Nikons I have one that are 10x for concerts, golf and other outdoor activities and I have one pair recently purchased with 8x magnification which are great for football games. Also can attest to the lifetime warranty as I had to send in my 10x for repair to one of the eye pieces and they were returned repaired and in like new condition with no charge to me. Nikon stands behind their products.

      Good optics. Not wide field of view.

      The overhead prism correction for the fact that straight through refractor telescopes turn the image upside down is optically successful and a much better, if more costly, solution than other optical arts and tricks. However, this sort of prism produces a not very generous 'wide' field of view. That is why, to get the wide field of view a bulkier and heavier optical system is needed and is typical. For those of us who enjoy compact and light weight binoculars these are the best solution possible.

      Bought these for our upcoming Alaska trip. So far they seem to be an outstanding value. Very clear and even while wearing progressive glasses. Not issues focusing for me and my wife, been checking out the Cardinals in my yard and the wildlife in the wetlands. Light weight compare to my old pair.

      Bought these before a cruise to Alaska and very happy. Good sharp detail in 50-100 yards and enough detail for general viewing at 400 yards. Light weight for size. Lens cap setup is awkward but minor problem. Found easier to use with glasses off

      The Nixon Prostaff binoculars are a great buy. They are great for using for traveling , thanks to their compact size. We took them to Alaska and were able to see more sea life than most of the other travelers because if the viewing distance. A worthwhile purchase!

      Needed binoculars for our recent Alaskan cruise and these fit the bill! I wanted a pair for each family member so Whether we were just whale watching from our balcony or on land excursions, we didn’t miss seeing anything.
