Nikon[R] adds to Monarch[TM] 7 line.
Fans of Nikon's Monarch 7 binocular line can now enjoy the performance and clarity of this series in two new scaled-down models--8x30 ($379.99) and 10x30 ($399.99). Made of fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin and covered with rubber armoring, both are 4.7"L x 4.8"W and weigh just a hair over 15 oz. Field of view at 1,000 yards is 435' for the 8X and 351' for the 10X. The ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass and dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coatings provide users with brighter images and colors. Like all Monarch 7 binos, these compact models also have fully multicoated lenses and prisms. Eye relief is a generous 15mm, the rubber eyecups turn and slide, and they are waterproof and fogproof.
