    These are amazing binoculars for this price range! They are easy to focus and crystal clear. Another huge plus is the size; they are compact and lightweight.

    I thought I would stick with Nikon since I'm a Nikon shooter and they don't disappoint, the quality is Excellent and View is very clear I use these when I'm shooting pictures of wildlife so that I don't have to keep the camera up to my face all the time .

    My goal was to upgrade from a small light weight 10 power binoculars convenient for traveling to something with better resolution even though heavier and larger. I looked at 4 Nikon models and setttled on this one because 8 power was better than 10 power for steadiness, roof prisms provided more comfortable holding than poro prisms, and the much more expensive Monarch model didn't seem to be worth the additional money. I am pleased with the construction quality, image quality and performance of this one. The size and weight is acceptable.

    Have a really old stadium pair. Optics were losing their sharpness. These Nikons are so crisp and clear. If I had the funds I probably would have gone up in price. But these are great for checking out my hummingbirds.

    The view through these binoculars is crisp and clear. I'm glad we took the chance and bought these. I mainly use them for bird watching and sightseeing.

    I bought the binoculars for my coming trip to national parks. After received it, I am not surprised with Nikon's build quality and optical quality, just similar as all Nikon cameras I have owned. It is light enough for the travel and with manageable image stability due to the optimal magnification. I believe it will be the powerful tool in the coming travel.

    Excellent clarity for viewing wildlife. I wish it was a little lighter for carrying while hiking.

    Excellent binoculars: clear, sharp viewing; easy focusing; feels well made, sturdy. Although a little heavier than smaller binoculars, viewing is bright and enjoyable.

    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.

    I did like the clarity with these binoculars but did not find them easy to use with glasses. With contacts, they were great.
