After much angst over the 8x vs 10x, I ordered the 8x and am very satisfied. I use them primarily while hiking and ATV'ing the trails on Cape Breton Island, N.S. I find the optics are exceptionally sharp and the easy to use w/ w/o glasses. I would recommend these to anyone who wants quality binoculars without paying alot!

I did replace the strap with a harness system and the lenses covers at both ends with ones that stay on when they are supposed to. Those products are from Eagle optics:

For the objective lenses, I ordered Vortex size medium lens covers: [...]

Ben Lizdas at Eagle Optics helped by actually trying them on the current model Nikon Prostaff 7 8x42 before I ordered them.

Excellent binoculars. Exceptionally bright and clear optics. Easy to hold and focus. I gave it 4 stars because the lens caps suck. They dont stay on well and will be easily lost.

I ordered these for a trip that may have put me in the tropics/marine environment. My trip went early and the package didn't make it. Optics we had available all fogged up except the nitrogen filled/sealed ones, so these would have been great.
These have great eye relief and adjustable (by rotating) eye cups. I don't have to remove my glasses if I don't want to and still get a full field of view. They can focus very close up, about 3-4 M (13 ft). The views are very clear with no aberration/color at the edge of the field like you usually see on cheap optics. My only complaint is the loose fitting caps for the eyepieces. They must have used the caps for a different pair of Nikon binoculars just to save a few bucks not having to stock another part number... pretty lousy and useless for keeping dust out. The caps fit my daughter's zoom Nikon binoculars, and were probably made to fit that model (or similar)
- Fix this Nikon -- I give it 3.5 only because of the lousy eyepiece caps... nice optics too bad they'll get all dusty because the caps are way too big, and keep slipping off in the case or when carried during a hike.

I received my new Nikon 10x42 Prostaff 7 Binoculars almost overnight and have thoroughly enjoyed using them. They are light weight, focus fast and clearly and have a bright field of view. The Nikon 10x42 binoculars operate and perform just like most of the other positive reviews posted on the website, the one negative just like others have commented are the poor lens covers; which is a minor thing.
Overall great binoculars and I am very pleased.

I would recommend these binoculars to birders, hunters, sports fans. Very versatile size and power. I have a 20 year old pair of tasco binoculars and the difference is amazing. Very clear, excellent color. I have been buying more as gifts.

I use these binoculars for bird watching. I did a lot of research on the internet and with the Audubon Society. This item is exactly what the Audubon Society suggested for "birding" and the price was great.

This binocular is surprisingly light and has great optics. I use them for hunting and general viewing. I would recommend them to anyone who doesn't want to spend alot of money but wants a good product.
