Most purchases in life are compromises - you give up something to get something. I think that's what the guy that came up with the adage "There's no free lunch" had in mind when after he accepted that offer of a free meal and then had to sit through a one hour multi-level marketing spiel.

Such is the case with binoculars. There is no free lunch. You give up something in order to get something. In the case of these Nikon Action 10x40 binoculars, however, what you get is a lot for what you give up.

What you GET:

1. Aspherical lens. This is a good thing. Most inexpensive binoculars come with spherical lens shapes because they are easier to make. Essentially, the curve of the lens is rounded in a constant curve, like that of a ball or sphere. This is easy to make because the manufacturer only has to use one shape of grinder in order to shape the lens and one shape of polisher to polish it. The problem occurs when you look through it. Objects seen through the middle of the lens are more or less in proportion. However, as you get near the edge of the lens, the image becomes distorted relative to the center because the light has much less glass to pass through near the thin edge than in the thicker part near the center of the lens. You notice this as distortion when looking at vertical or horizontal lines near the edge of your field of view. Aspherical lens correct for this distortion but require the manufacturer to use a more complicated, and expensive, set of grinders to make the lens elements. If you're bird watching or using these for football games, a little bit of edge distortion might not bother you. However, if you are looking at buildings or bridges, you'll definitely notice the distortion.

2. Ergonomics.

I have always had binoculars. But I can safely say that I have never had a pair this sharp at anywhere near the price. They snap into focus and the image is sharp as a tack. The ergonomics are very good they fit my hands and the control is right where you expect it to be. The controls are silky smooth making focus and diopter adjustment quite precise.

The rear lens caps slip onto the neck strap where they are reasonably secure. Unfortunately Nikon couldn't come up with as good an answer for the front lens caps. They have small loop with an opening so you can clip them onto the neck strap. Not very secure. More likely they will go in my pocket. Good luck finding a replacement, Google couldn't.

The nicely padded soft case does not come with a strap. It hangs from the binocular strap when they are in the case. I still haven't come up with a good solution on what to do with it in the field. However the strap on the binoculars is nice and wide 1 1/4"

Nikon 7266 Action 10 X 40 mm Binoculars

I've always been a Nikon camera fan, and these are outstanding binoculars, with the same look, feel and optics you find in their highest quality cameras.

If you spend a few moments learning about how to buy binculars, you'll be able to choose, as I did, a product that is well built and designed for what you are doing (hummingbird watching here). Learn what Magnification Power, Objective Lens Diameter and Exit Pupil mean.

The case is clean in design, very nice and functional.

This is a simple but useful site I found on how to pick binoculars. Many thanks to the author for posting this.

Good luck and enjoy.

These binoculars are good in all categories. They are not the cheapest you can get nor the most expensive, but they do a great job for everyday use. They have good weight, so they feel like they are made of good quality material, but are not too heavy to make your arms ache from extended use. They have a nice strap and case and have great, clear optics. Don't waste your money on any other cheaper binoculars and don't spend any more on other more expensive ones unless you have a specific need that requires "high end" binoculars.

I have used these binocs in lowlight and in full sun and you have very little glare because of the multicoated lenses. The 40mm lenses, although not as large as the 50 mm do work well in lowlight conditions and night time stargazing. They produce very clear images at anywhere from 10 feet to more than 1000 ft. I would certainly buy another for a present or any of the other size binocs in nikon's lineup. They certainly know how to make an extremely high quality product for a very reasonable price. A lot of people complain about the front lens covers and I must agree with them, at least when I initially took them out of the box, but after about 10 minutes ponderng over what to do to fix the problem of an open loop on the front lens covers, I came up with a great cheap and easy fix that doesn't ruin the overall look of the binocs at all. I'll try and attach some pictures at a later date. If you are trying to keep from losing your front lens covers, I remembered I had a package of 3/32" electrician's heat shrink tubing left over from another project. I simply snipped a short length of it and slipped it over both sides of the loop and hit it with a bbq torch lighter for a couple seconds and presto chango the lens cap will now stay on any strap you affix it to and not fall off and get lost. The shrink tube creates a permanent link between the two halves of the loop and won't fall off or get damaged and if it ever does fail, it's easily removable with a razor blade and can be reapplied in under 2 minutes. Heat Shrink Tube Assortment - 10" - 3/32 to 1/4-inch
