Customer Reviews

These are very high quality binoculars and are a pretty good weight.
MindCreations
I recommend bracing them against something solid or putting them on a tripod (mount included) when you are at maximum zoom as they will be difficult to hold steady.

These are no ordinary binoculars. They are a miracle. They exceeded my expectations and I am proud to own them now.

Its usable right out of the box. The controls are very easy to use, even my 4 year old son knows how to focus the binoculars. You can keep the zoom level at 10X for most viewing. When you really want to zoom in, the binoculars provide upto 22X zoom by just sliding a lever. At 22X zoom, you need steady hands or a tripod to view appropriately. The 10X zoom is more than sufficient for exploring the distant objects around you.

For starters, when you buy a binocular, you need to consider two aspects. The binoculars are usually represented in the format A X B where A is the magnification and B is the diameter of the front lens in millimeters. The more the better for both A and B.

This Nikon binocular is capable of magnifications ranging from 10 to 22. The front lens is 50 mm which is more than sufficient for everyday daylight and night viewing.

The Nikon lens are world-class providing crystal clear view. At night I focussed on the moon and could see the mountains on the moon very clearly.

Overall I would definitely recommend this product for everyone. Even adults who think that binoculars are for children must try this product as it will amaze them. Not to speak of teens who will marvel their "birds" in close-up!!!

I have used Nikon binoculars in 8x40 and 10x50 and these are excellent for glassing while hunting. I liked the idea of having a zoom feature so as to examine subjects in more detail when necessary, but zoom binoculars don't have a great reputation from what I have read. I purchased the 10-22x50 with some apprehension and am I ever glad I did. The optics are fantastic at 10 power with no distortion and are a pleasure to look through. There appears to be some bluriness when zooming up to 22x requiring some diopter readjustment. I was never 100% satisfied with the focus at 22x, but I would strongly recommend this binocular to anyone who requires a zoom binocular. I found that I could view subjects offhand at 22x, but I will primarily use this power with some support as it is difficult to steady. I am extremely satisfied with this binocular and can honestly say that the zoom feature and additional magnifaction have greatly enhanced my viewing experience.

I bought these binoculars about a month ago because I wanted something really powerful/top of the line that could be used with basically doing anything. These things are SO powerful that it's scary. We went to a concert last week and were wayyyy far away from the stage. We used the zoom on these to the 22 mark and it was TOO close!

These are very high quality binoculars and are a pretty good weight. They come with a soft case and covers for the lenses and eyepiece, and a tripod mount. There is a small lever on the right eye piece that you can ease left to right in order to take advantage of the 10-22 zoom. Because the diameter of the lenses is 50, these binoculars allow a good deal of light to come in so that you will see a bright, crisp image.

If you are into star-gazing then you are going to need a tripod. Nothing expensive, just something to steady the binoculars so that you won't be struggling to hold them completely still in your hands. When you're that close with the zoom you're going to need it.

Highly recommended!

The Nikon Action was my first pair of binocular's. After researching for hours I purchase these and they worked great. You can use the 10X zoom to look for objects like bear, dear, birds, etc. and then zoom in with 22X zoom. The lens are pretty clear. Very satisfied.

Great binoculars. The zoom is perfect for sporting and field events. A little heavier than I had anticipated but still easy to support. Get a tripod if you need to view for extended periods of time.

I got these binoculars and the image was clear and crisp. I was very impressed with the zoom distance, and still being so clear. This is a top of the line binocular and very worth the price.

The binoculars come with a carrying case, protective lens covers, and a strap. These are easy to use, but a tripod is recommended.

This isn't by any means a pro pair of binoculars, but for the casual traveler they are just AWESOME. Even with the max zoom I was able to see everything clearly without a tripod/monopod (monopod arrived today, combined it's just perfect, even can see the moon with detail) The focus range is incredible and the image clarity is like seeing an HDTV. For the casual user 5 stars or even 6!!!

First, my rating needs some explanation.
I have some Ziess WWII Bino's that are rarely used for a couple of reasons. They are a VERY rare, expensive, heavy and fine example of what Bino's are all about.
Would you carry several thou worth of Bino's to a concert or whatever and have a fun evening without a great deal of concern? This is where these 10X22X50 Nikon's SHINE and why I use these Nikon's.
For the money, I'm impressed. If you understand value and how to use them, these Nikon's can't be beat and all this with the Nikon lifetime paperwork TOO, a true "no-brain-r.
All the same, I'd like to suggest, go look through a pair of hi-buck, big objective, long range, poor light situation binoculars to get an idea of what the big money will get, to have a future point of reference when you win the lottery.
Is this Nikon glass up to that... not by a long shot but for 90% of what binoculars are for, these little marvels do a very good job without field striping you bank account and if they hit the floor, you won't be have to deal with an insurance claim.
