From the Manufacturer
The best selling Action series has been updated for 2004 with enhanced styling and lower prices, while maintaining the highest of optical standards. Nikons new Action features multicoated aspherical lenses for clear edge-to-edge viewing, more than ample exit pupils for superior light gathering ability and BaK4 high-index prisms for exceptional brightness and resolution. The Actions with 50mm objective lenses are available in 16, 12 and 10 power configurations. These binoculars will ensure that the action is always up close and very personal.
A great bang-for-the-buck binocular, the 16x50 Action VII Binocular
is the highest-magnification, largest-objective entry in value-driven porro prism lineup. It features an extremely high magnification, bold view that's bright and characterized by the subjects being cast against extremely blurred background features. This is a sensible hunting or astronomy option when one cannot approach their subjects and where a bigger binocular is acceptable.
