Description

Nikon MONARCH 5 8x42 Binoculars

The new MONARCH 5 combines the superiority of Nikon’s ED (extra-low dispersion) Glass Lenses with Fully Multicoated Eco-Glass Lenses to deliver images that are extremely lifelike in color and detail. The MONARCH 5 also features a lightweight design, turn-and-slide rubber eyecups and long eye relief that makes this binocular comfortable and easy to use.

 

Lightweight Champion of Dawn & Dusk

Even with an uncontested heritage of all-conditions optical performance, the all-new MONARCH 5 further elevates its game with improved agility and advanced low light brilliance.  By shaving nearly an ounce of weight from its rugged frame, the new MONARCH 5 is more athletic than ever, while the addition of Nikon ED glass lenses puts it in a class of its own for battling darkness with sharp, high-contrast views.

 

Nikon’s ED Glass Lenses - The Difference Is Clear

All MONARCH 5 binoculars are now built with Nikon’s legendary ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lenses, which correct chromatic aberrations across the furthest limits of the visible light range and effectively compensate for color fringing.  Even when observing objects that would make chromatic aberration the most apparent – such as adjacent whites and blacks – the images will maintain superior contrast and resolution thanks to the ED glass lenses. The improved resolution also provides brighter, more natural looking images, making the MONARCH 5 a serious contender to be your “go-to” binocular for years to come.

 

Extremely Portable - Now Lighter Than Ever Before

Almost a full ounce lighter than its predecessors, the new MONARCH 5 is even easier to take with you on your next outing. Its small size, combined with a sleek easy-to-grip body design, makes it the ultimate binocular to carry with you.

 

Enjoy Comfortable Viewing With Nikon’s High-Eyepoint Design

Nikon has manufactured the MONARCH 5 binoculars, as well as many other of its optics, with a high-eyepoint design. This provides a clear field of view for everyone, even when the user is wearing eyeglasses, with sufficient space between the user’s brow and the binocular’s eyecups.

 

Greater Light Transmission With Fully Multicoated Eco-Glass Lenses

Multilayer coatings, which provide an even higher light transmittance across the entire visible light spectrum, are applied to all of the lens and prism surfaces that transmit light. This minimizes the loss of light due to reflection, thereby ensuring a more natural, clearer view.

 

Dielectric, High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coatings Produce Rich, Accurate Colors

Applied to all lenses and prism surfaces, this technique provides almost the same brightness as that perceived by the naked eye, and clear high-contrast images that display accurate color reproduction.

 

Turn-and-Slide Rubber Eyecups
The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups allow users to adjust the eye-relief for a custom fit - providing a full field of view and maximum comfort during extended periods of use.

 

Durable Rubber-Armored Body
Built to handle any environment, the MONARCH 5 has a rubber-armored coating to withstand extreme use and provide a non-slip grip, even in the wettest conditions.

 

Smooth Central Focus Knob
With this simple and intuitive design, bringing objects into focus has never been easier.

 

Waterproof and Fogproof
MONARCH 5 binoculars are Nitrogen filled and O-Ring sealed for complete waterproof and fogproof performance.

          My neighbor had admired my Nikon 8x36 Monarch ATB binoculars and asked me to keep an eye out for some similar ones for him. He is deighted with these binoculars and with the very rapid and excellent service of Hayneedle.

          Haven't had a chance to use them on my safari yet. Checked out some birds just fine. The eye caps won't stay on but the folks from Hayneedle are working with me so hopefully this will be resolved before I leave.

                I love the feel of these glasses and the strap is soft and comfortable. These are my first high end binoculars for bird watching. And although I just received them and haven't really used them much, they were easy to focus and overall I am happy with the purchase.

                    I will be using this for field training with my labs - when they do long water blinds. These will work great. I will set the focus at the distance where I will need to use them, so they will be all set. The light and clarity of objects at a distance is really great.
