Comments about Nikon 12x56mm Monarch ATB Binoculars:

Bright and clear view. Smooth center focus. I like the feature where the rear covers stay attached to the binoculars. I also like the twist-out eye relief spacers. The front cover could use a better design. The only real dislike I have is that the eye-balance, focus wheel is very stiff.

    Comments about Nikon 12x56mm Monarch ATB Binoculars:

    These binocular is superb. Sharp, crisp and clear images, feels robust and heavy (which is what I prefer). Very easy to focus with just about the right tightness. I found I don't need to manipulate too much the right diopter, as it's just bang on target. Only downside I noticed is that there seems to be a slight color washout/aberration in the color rendition at the extreme edges of the object being viewed, in strong light...and the one I got was not made in Japan; it's China.
    Overall, this binos are a keeper.

      Comments about Nikon 12x56mm Monarch ATB Binoculars:

      These binos are one of the best "Bang for your buck" deals out there. The 12 power Nikons have an exit puple of 4.5. This is a must for glassing early and late into the evening. These binos proved to pass the test and allowed clearity throughout the day. Used them on an Arizona Deer hunt and had no problem identifying game out to over a mile.

      Comments about Nikon 12x56mm Monarch ATB Binoculars:

      I'm an Applied Ecologist, ornithologist and nature photographer. This binoculars have one of the best value in market, they possess all of the lens technology that make great binoculars great, at a very affordable price. The only downside so far, is how easy it is to break and lose the front lens caps, and at extreme edges you can see some mild color aberrations at very strong sun light.

        This fine binocular is easy to operate and provides crystal clear images. Since it provides 12x magnification, user need to have a steady hands to get a stable picture.

        The manufacturer should supple instruction how to anchor the binocular on the tripod adapter supplied. After 3 days, I am still struggling how to fix the binocular on the adapter.

          Comments about Nikon 12x56mm Monarch ATB Binoculars:

          Nikon 12x56 provide the power needed to see wildlife at great distances in the open country of the southwest. The 56 mm objective gathers light during the critical time periods of dawn and dusk. There is always a trade of between high magnification, light grabbing ability and stability of image- these Nikon 12x56 are a great compromise at a great price.Recommend a tripod for extended viewing and stability of image.
