Description

Superior waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof attributes to withstand extreme conditions. Extremely clear, distortion-free image over the entire field of view.

 

Nikon is world-renowned for producing top-quality optics, and the Nikon 8x40mm Action Extreme EX waterproof, ultrawide-angle binoculars enhance that reputation. Action EX is aimed at hunters and others who want traditional Porro-style binos with superior waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof attributes to withstand extreme conditions.


Each EX is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for total waterproof and fogproof performance in any environment. Binocular bodies are ergonomically shaped, tripod-adaptable, and rubber-coated for a non-slip grip, whether wet or dry.


Optically they're ready for action, as well. Lens elements incorporate multi-layered anti-reflective coatings to deliver optimum brightness, high contrast, true color rendition, and flare-free viewing in most lighting conditions. A unique, click-stop eyecup design provides variable eye relief that is customizable to each user's eyes and eyeglasses. There's also a diopter control to correct for normal right/left-eye vision imbalance.


Action Extreme EX binos help separate branches from antlers, giving you that rare shot at a trophy!

I bought these binoculars to compare to some high quality roof prism binoculars that are highly rated on many websites. I did a comparison between these Nikon Action Extremes and the other 8x42 roof prism binoculars and here are my specific findings: 1) The Nikon Action Extreme 8x40 is extremely bright, which makes viewing an absolute pleasure. The view was noticeably brighter than the roof prisms (which were twice the price). 2) The Nikon Action Extreme focuses reasonably close, but not quite as close as competitive roof prism binoculars. 3) The Nikon Action Extreme is larger/wider than a comparable roof prism. 4) Image quality is outstanding, easily matching (or in some cases even exceeding) more expensive roof prism binocular designs. 5) For further comparison, I tried these binoculars against a set for 1/5 the price, and the Nikon Action Extreme 8x40 was so much better that even the low price of the cheap porros wasn't attractive enough to overcome the image quality issues with the cheap brand. The Nikon Action Extreme 8x40 is, quite simply, a superb value. The other porro that should probably be considered in this price range is the Leupold Yosemite.

Ultimately, I rated the roof prisms (which again, were twice the price) as being slightly better with a wider field of view and better contrast. I also appreciated the smaller width. But with crowd-pleasing image brightness and a great in-hand feel, these Nikon Action Extreme 8x40s are a safe bet for just about everyone.

The width/size may not please some people and it will definitely take up space in a suitcase if you intend to travel with it. I absolutely hate the objective lens covers; you'd think Nikon could have spent a dollar more and gotten covers that fold down and have a retaining loop around the lens body. Focusing is not as quick as with some roof prism binos. These minor concerns (at least for me) are far outweighed by the outstanding image quality of the Nikon, the fogproof/waterproof/nitrogen-filled construction, great eye-relief for eyeglass wearers, and the great in-hand feel. One of the best affordable porro-prism binoculars on the market, as well as being just plain one of the best binoculars around. Very Highly Recommended.

It seems like a quality binocular, but there are no lens cap attachments or holders and in the first field use, we lost one. I purchased them for my husband thinking they were good for bird watching and at a distance they are but not for bringing the bird right up close. They will work well for home use. When the birds are not so far away.

    I bought these for my husband, for bird-watching and for use at the beach. (To spot dolphins, not women) He is extremely pleased with them, and showed me how to use them. Easy! And they are lightweight, an added plus.

      Comments about Nikon 8x40mm Action Extreme ATB Binoculars:

      I have a Canon 8X25 IS roof prism pair. I bought the Nikon 8X40 poro prism to compare the different optical systems. The Nikon's larger objective lens and poro prism brings a wider and brighter view of the same distance. It is bigger and heavier than the Canon, but rugged and waterproof. The Canon's image stabilizer compensates my essential tremor, but the Nikon's extra bulk also helps. At one third the price of the Canon the Nikon is a very good buy.

      Customer Q & A

      Q1: What is the difference between this model being wide field of view as opposed to the higher 10x50 or higher models of being wide angle? I am interested in bird watching, hunting, viewing animals at about a mile or so away in detail, but also having a wide field of view.

      A: With binoculars the higher the magnification the smaller the field of View at 1000yds. (Similar to a Flashlight beam) With a Wide angle what they have done is positioned the prisms inside the binoculars to give a larger field of view than you would normally have in a binocular of the same magnification. For the farther the distance you are viewing the higher the magnification that you will want but the higher you go the more shaky the image becomes. So for long distance viewing you may want to consider more of a spotting scope.

      Q2: How much do these binoculars weigh?

      A: They weigh 30.1 oz.
