Almost an ounce lighter than its predecessor and built with Nikon ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses, the new MONARCH 5 is a serious contender to be the “go-to” binocular for any outdoor enthusiast. The MONARCH 5 delivers sharp, high-contrast views that are the result of a state-of-the-art optical system. Featuring Nikon’s premium ED Glass lenses and Dielectric High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coatings, the MONARCH 5 displays exceptionally accurate color reproduction and a clear, natural looking image. Each of its Eco-Glass lenses are Fully Multicoated to provide maximum resolution and light transmission. The MONARCH 5 binocular comes in black finish and is available in 8×42, 10×42 and 12×42 magnifications. It utilizes Nikon’s high-eye point design to provide a clear field-of-view and long eye-relief. The long eye-relief ensures a sufficient space between the user’s face and the binoculars’ eyecups to make them comfortable for everyone, even for those wearing eyeglasses. The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to find the right eye positioning for extended periods of use. The MONARCH 5 also utilizes a smooth central focus knob that makes it easy to bring object into focus for fast viewing. Built for extreme usage, the MONARCH 5 is Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, making it completely waterproof and fog proof. A protective, rubber-armored coating strengthens its durability and ensures a non-slip grip during wet and dry conditions.

Nice and compact, but optically only slightly better than the physically larger and heavier Bushnell 8×42 We recently purchased Nikon Monarch5 8×42 ($246 on Amazon) binoculars and Bushnell Legacy WP 8×42 ($83 on Amazon). In side-by-side testing the image quality and the built quality of the Bushnell (poro prism design) are very similar to that of the Nikon (roof prism design). The most notable difference is weight and size. The Nikons are much smaller (due to the roof prism design) and the 21 oz (1.5 lb) feels much lighter than the 25 oz (2.0 lb) Bushnell. The Nikon has a 6.4 degree FOV (51 degree apparent FOV and the image sharpness falls off outside of a 5 degree diameter (80%). This is very good. The Bushnell FOV is 8.2 degree (65 degree apparent FOV) is considerable larger than that of the Nikon, but the sharpness falls off outside of a 5 degree diameter (64%). When wearing glasses the usable FOV of the Bushnell and the Nikon is the almost the same due to the better eye relief of the Nikon. The image quality of the Nikon and the Bushnell based on stars is similar and excellent, but…

Great binoculars, lousy lens caps We bought two pairs of these binoculars as an upgrade from less expensive (e.g. $70) birding binoculars. The optical quality and overall construction of these binoculars is excellent, the image is much brighter with better contrast and much less off-axis problems (which is the big problem with our old binoculars). The lenses are so good, they bring out the flaws in my sixty-year old eyes–and that’s a compliment. I also like the grippy rubberized coating, which makes the Nikons comfortable and easy to hold.
