Not what Nikon used to be,
This review is from: Nikon 7295 Monarch ATB 10x42 Binocular (Electronics)
The optical quality is fair. However the eye cups will break when used to adjust from a person who is wearing glasses to one who is not.Look closely at the quality of this connection point and you will see it is extremely fragile.Do some research and you will find many others with the same problem. Also, Nikon doesn't really want to take responsibilty for it. They MAY fix it without charge, but you'll still be expected to pay for all shipping charges.

Broken eyecups are a common problem with binoculars these days. I've had the same issues with Pentax roof prism binoculars similar in design and price to the Nikon Monarch. The eyecups tend to fail even if the binocular is handled carefully and stored correctly. I think the main issues are poor manufacturing and cheap materials. You would expect that from an inexpensive binocular that coasts less than $100, but not something in this price range.

I've never had a broken eyecup [or anything else] on my fully uncoated binoculars made in 1912 at Jena.

Bought Nikon Monarch 10X42 back in 2004 and no eye cup issues. Do you drop yours or slam them into your eye sockets? Curious since you are pretty unique with this issue.
