I bought these binoculars in the UK a few weeks ago from a different retailer (sadly, in the UK we do not have anything like the Wal-Mart Supercenter just a few minutes from our rented holiday villa in Venice, FL). I already own a pair of Pentax XCF 10x50s which I bought for basic astronomy and general use (bird watching etc.), but find my hands aren't quite steady enough to handle that level of magnification. Also, the outer-edge sharpness of the Pentax binos is kind of disappointing. These little Nikons are a revelation by comparison! The 8x magnification, 40mm objective lenses, multi-coated glass and BAK-4 prisms combine to give a steadier, clearer image without any loss in low-light performance. The clarity of image is outstanding, and the wide angle field-of-view is particularly useful for astronomy, as is the quite excellent edge sharpness which - to my amateur eyes, at least - is near perfect (much better than the Pentax's). They also came with an excellent neck strap which is wide and comfortable, and a basic soft carrying case. Nikon could improve this offering with a greater degree of weatherproofing and a better carrying case... but then, the binoculars would cost more, so it's unfair to expect these extra features at such a low price. As it stands, these are a bargain, and easily warrant a five-star rating!
First off, we got this in about two days shipping during the holidays, right to our door! Great service, Wal Mart! This is a very nice set of binoculars. Quality design, great travel case and nice covers for the lenses! Got it for my husband to bird watch from the living room out into the back of our property and it's great! Wanted to get the Sharper Image ones with the ability to take pics, but all the reviews I read about them were bad. Very pleased with this purchase!
This is first time I am using a high quality binocular and I am very pleased with the result.
Distant objects really look clear and watching stars at night is also fun.
Drawback - I have to take off my glasses otherwise the view becomes very limited.
I wanted binoculars for bird watching in my back yard and taking with me on walks, etc. I needed to replace a pair of ancient binoculars that had seen their day. I did a lot of research and decided on these binoculars after reading other favorable reviews. I am very happy with them. Very easy to use and focus. I would highly recommend them.
I just bought two pairs of these binnoculars and going to buy a third one. One for the Jeep, one for the ATV, one for my truck. I have expensive solar powered transmitting equipment on a mouintain peak and when my electronic sensor detectors go off I can easily view the mountain top and see if it was a bird or human being setting off the alarms. I never know what vehicle I will be driving out here, in the desert mountain areas. Personnaly they perform equal or better then my $300.00 pair of binnoculars. Highly recommend them for the price!
I am a bird watcher and have used more expensive binoculars in the past but none are as good as the Nikon binoculars. I have had problems focusing both eyes but not anymore, these binoculars are bringing me great joy!
I was at a loss about what to get my mom for Christmas. I happened to think about How much she loves to feed the birds and watch the wildlife in her big back yard in Tennessee. I researched some birding websites and found that these binoculars were recommended for backyard bird watching. She loved them! They were her favorite gift. My dad says she uses them every day. I've tried them and I'm pretty impressed, too. They are extremely clear and make things look as though you can touch them. Would definitely recommend these. Great price for the quality.
This is the best pair of binoculars, I have ever owned, considering what they cost. As good as ones that were in the $200.00 range.
These binoculars are by far a excellent choice for the price. The optics are clear and the field of view (40mm) makes any object "POP" and are easy to handle. Being that they are the first pair I've purchased, but looked at many, the Nikon 8 x 40mm Action Bicnoculars are outstanding. A big plus is that Nikon carries a 25 year warranty. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!
I purchased these for my Husband who is extremely picky. We had done alot of research on binoculars to make sure he got the correct ones. These were perfect and much cheaper than we had found on other sites. The site to store option was very easy to use! I would recommend these to anyone!!
I got these for my hubby affter reading nearly a couple hundred positive reviews. I had no idea what to buy for him. I was convinced these would be perfect for him and he LOVES them! For years, he had been using these awful, cheap, practically disposable binoculars that were free with a sports mag subscription and I couldn't stand the thought of him using them anymore. He loves to bird watch! The clarty is amazing and it brings the wildlife up close, and personal! He said he never knew hummingbird eyes were so big! lol
We bought these binoculars after reading the information and suggestions on several websites. They are really great! They are strong enough to focus in on wildlife at a distance and still focus up close to get a good view of the animals that aren't as far off. We live out in the country and have lots of wildlife on our farm as well as our livestock. The reviewers were right about these being the perfect binoculars for birdwatching. I would recommend them to anyone.
Binoculars are a great buy. They perform as well if not better then som of the more expensive ones. And expensive they can be, I was shocked to see some of the binoculars range in price from, $9 all the way up to over a $1000. Yes that high so i do believe I got a good buy for the price, a bargin that works and does as advertised!!
These are good bionculars for the money, but if you want a great pair of binoculars, go for either the Leupold or the Nikon in the $300-$400 range. There is a reason why the great binoculars just cost more money, they're better.
I bought these binoculars based on everyone else's good reviews. These are heavy, awkward, and do not get clear- no matter how you focus them. The view is very small- meaning if you are trying to see something- you just get a tiny bit of it. I would return them, but I spent WAY too much on shipping for Christmas to make it worth it. Garage sale quality. Maybe I can unload them on ebay.
A quality product at a very good price
I bought this for my father for Christmas and he absolutely loved it. Also my husband tried them out and said they are TOP quality and I will be purchasing a pair for him.
These are outstanding binoculars -- very bright, excellent resolution. The 8x magnification is great for hand-held use -- you get a good up-close image without much shaking. The build quality, fit, and finish are all excellent. My boy scout troop loved using these at scout camp. Even at 8x, it's amazing to see craters on the moon and thousands of stars in what appeared to be a sparsly populated patch of sky to the naked eye. And we had these binoculars at hand just as an eagle began making slow circles high above the waterfront! Magic.
These binoculars are easy to focus in whether wearing glasses, or not. They present a clear and bright picture without shaking. I would recommend them for anyone who likes the outdoors!
Great binocs for the price
