With the release of the new, enhanced MONARCH 5 binocular, Nikon has raised the standard of how a binocular should look, feel and perform.
This new binocular is almost an ounce lighter than its predecessor, thanks to a lighter rubber armor material. With the inclusion of Nikon's 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. Nikon's legendary ED glass lenses effectively compensate for chromatic aberrations to provide images of superior contrast and outstanding resolution. The overall resolution and contrast are even more noticeable thanks to Phase Correction Coatings.
The MONARCH 5 also features Dielectric High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coatings, which help display exceptionally accurate color reproduction and a clear, natural looking image. Each of its Eco-Glass lenses are Fully Multicoated to provide maximum light transmission.
The MONARCH 5 binocular comes in black finish and is available in 8x42, 10x42 and 12x42 magnifications. It utilizes Nikon's high-eyepoint design to provide a clear field-of-view and long eye-relief. The long eye-relief ensures a sufficient space between the user's eye and the binocular's eyepiece lenses to make them comfortable for everyone, even for those wearing eyeglasses. The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to find the correct eye positioning to see the full field of view.
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 fogproof. A protective, rubber-armored coating strengthens its durability and ensures a non-slip grip during wet and dry conditions.
The MSRP for the MONARCH 5 binocular is $299.95 for the 8x42 model, $329.95 for the 10x42 model and $349.95 for the 12x42 model.
