Technical Details

Product Description

Product Description

  • Aspherical eyepiece lenses, ergonomic body, and quick central focus
  • Large exit pupils
  • Multicoated lenses and high index BaK4 prism
Updated styling, top-notch optics and much lower pricing make Nikon?s latest Action Series binocular a prime choice for quality minded, value conscious sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts.

The new Action Series binoculars utilize a multicoated, high resolution, aspherical lens system engineered to provide an extremely clear, distortion-free image over the entire field of view. The advanced eyepiece design also offers substantial eye relief, which makes the binocular eyeglass compatible.

The new Action Series 7x35 will provide a field of view of over 420? at 1,000 yards, giving it a true wide field viewing capability. The new Action Series 7x35 has an Apparent Angles of View of 65 degrees or higher, making it a true wide angle binoculars.

This Action Series binocular is built on an all-metal chassis and lens fittings are housed in a tough, lightweight polycarbonate body shell. The binocular body is ergonomically shaped, tripod adaptable and rubber coated for an easy, non-slip grip. A new black color scheme complements the updated design of the Action Series binocular.

Like all Nikon central focus binoculars, the Action Series features a diopter control for total viewing consistency. This control, located on the binocular?s right eyepiece, is essential to compensate for common left eye/right eye vision imbalance.

Nikon Action Series binocular incorporates multi-layered anti-reflective lens coatings formulated to deliver optimum brightness, high contrast, true color rendition and flare-free viewing. The Action Series also utilizes BaK4 high index prisms for clear, round images free from vignetting.

From the Manufacturer

Like the Actions with 50mm objective lenses, the 8x40 and 7x35 models in this ever-popular series have been updated with enhanced and ergonomic styling and a lower price structure. They also feature aspherical eyepiece lenses with multi-coated prisms and a quick central focus system so that there is never a delay in observation. With a field of view of over 420’ at 1,000 yards, these particular models of the Action Series are a true "wide-view" binocular. For the discriminating and value-conscious outdoorsman, there is no finer binocular than the Action.

I chose 7x35 binoculars for general field use, bird watching, and wildlife study. I had originally planned to buy the more expensive Action Extremes for their shock and water resistance. But on a recent visit to the big city, I had a chance to compare them with these, side by side and was unable to convince myself to buy the more expensive pair.

After looking through both the Action and the Action Extreme, I felt that I could not obtain a sharp focus with the Extremes. Puzzled, I asked the salesman to break out a second pair, but again could not focus the Action Extremes as clearly. I was quite ready to pay extra for the shock and water resistance of the more expensive binoculars, but sharp focus and clarity of view trump the other qualities.

After three weeks of use, which have included birding, an airshow, and some casual observation of the night sky, I am quite pleased with these. They are lightweight, fast and easy to focus.

The only complaint I have is that while the eyepiece lens covers are easily, conveniently, and semi-permanently secured to the neck strap, the objective lens covers are not. The objective lens caps are equiped with molded slots that can be attached to the neck strap, but they work poorly, and are NOT secure. I found myself crawling around in the mud looking for the lens caps several times before deciding that they were best kept in my pocket. This is an irritating flaw in an otherwise well designed and nicely made product.

As an amateur astronomer, I am always on the lookout for good binoculars, and have had experience with quite a few - even a few very highly rated high-end types. I saw the Nikons in a sporting goods store about 6 months ago, and was impressed at the clarity and depth of field apparent even within the store. After asking permission to take them outside, observations confirmed my initial impressions. They are nearly as bright (and clearer, better color rendition) than a "standard" brand 7x50 - perhaps because of excellent multi-coatings. The 9+ degree FOV makes them ideal for digging out fainter constellations and asterisms. Stars remained point-like nearly to the edge of the field. True, I couldn't see too many Messier# galaxies, but you can't see many with ANY 7x bino, most requiring at least a decent 10x50. The compact size also makes these useful for daytime applications, such as birdwatching and other nature related activities, or watching athletic events.
This was my first experience with Nikon binoculars, and based on this purchase I soon bought the Nikon 10x50s as well. Although I thought I got an incredibly good buy at the time, I have since learned I could have saved 15% by buying on-line - no matter, they are still "keepers" with which I will never part. An incredible value. For the casual user, they may be all the binocular you will ever need.

I bought these binoculars for bird watching and for that purpose they work great. I have a pair of 10x50 and although I really like them I wanted something smaller and steadier. I will still use my 10x50's but more for raptors in flight or bird watching in the woods, these ones are a lot more confortable when watching birds at a medium range, casual bird watching around the house or simply trying to follow a bird to its nest (due to the large field of view).

There is some distortion around the outer edges but it isn't bad, I actually only noticed it because I was deliberately looking for it. The images are sharp and I am surprised at how bright the images are considering the price and size of the lenses. Some bird watching sites would have you believe that you have to spend an arm and a leg on a pair of binoculars in order to bird watch properly, that is not the case. This pair will show all the detail on birds (even the tiny ones).

Verified Purchase
I own another pair of 7x35 binoculars, and thought they were pretty good until I picked up these Nikons. There's no comparison. The Nikon's optics are far superior. Images are sharp from edge to edge. There is a minimal amount of purple fringing and internal reflections, even under harsh lighting conditions. The FOV is a very wide 489' (9.2 degrees). I doubt there is a better pair of binoculars at this low price point.

Excellent multicoated optics.
Ultra Wide FOV.
Well built.
Great value.
25 year Limited Warranty. No Fault Policy.

Mediocre accessories. (lens caps, case)
'Weather Resistant'. Not waterproof/fogproof.
A little heavy.

With a wide angle 9.3 deg of view the Nikon 7x35 Action binos give a spectacular view that is bright and have very good optics for their price. Thats why I bought them - they were cheap. I had no idea they'd be this good! They are very easy to use. The center focus is smooth and can be turned with one finger. The diopter adjustment is on the right eyepiece where you'd expect it - and is easy to turn but not so easy as to get readjusted by a slight bump. Diopter scale is kind of hard to read - maybe Nikon could have put some color on the + - marks? While I wish Nikon had included the same twist up/down eye-cups they included on the 8x42 & 8x25 Trailblazer ATB I do understand these are budget binocs. Instead Nikon put on rubber cups that just fold down for eyeglass wearers like me - or pop up for those lucky enough to have 20:20 vision - but they aren't otherwise adjustable. While the 7x35s aren't quite as good as the 8x42s or 8x25s for sharpness they do come close and more than a few friends and family that have compared them see no reason to buy the 8x42s for well over twice the price. And they are all impressed with the bright wide angle views.

But this isn't a review of the 8x42 or 8x25 Nikon - its a review of the 7x35 action model. I'm presuming the Action Extreme use the same optics since when I compared them all specs were the same - just no waterproofing on the regular Action models. Since I bought these to leave in my golf cart and I live in a dry climate waterproofing wasn't necessary. When it rains around here its an event and we put up the clubs and go home.

I do have a few things I'm critical of with these binocs besides the eye-cups. The caps don't fit well - they fall off in the case!
