About this product
The 12x42 Monarch 5 Binocular from Nikon combines fully multicoated optics with a rubber armored fogproof housing to produce the image quality and handling that is characteristic of Monarch series binoculars. This iteration of the Monarch 5 features extra-low dispersion (ED) lens elements that transmit bright images with enhanced color fidelity and contrast. To preserve the image quality of these high-transmission lenses Nikon also outfitted this Monarch 5 with phase-corrected roof prisms. Using dielectric coatings these prisms align incoming wavelengths of light and render well-defined edges with lifelike color.This version of the Monarch 5 all-terrain binocular boasts the same weatherproofing and functionality as its predecessor. The 12x42 configuration of the Monarch 5 has a 5° angle of view and can focus to within nine feet making this set of glasses well-suited for almost any glassing activity. A nitrogen-filled fogproof housing provides this set of binoculars with the build quality needed to endure a long day of observation in unforgiving conditions. Non-slip rubber armoring twist-up eyecups and a comfortable 15mm eye relief equip the Monarch 5 binocular with the features needed for reliable and comfortable outdoor viewing.

The binoculars were just whatI was looking for, a good product at a good price. I was originally looking for the Nikon Monarch 5 10 x 42but as these were not in stock I chose the 12 x 42 - a good decision. Very pleased with the binoculars and equally so with the speed of delivery to my home. It is great when one orders something and the follow up is almost instant. Well done.
