Almost an ounce lighter than its predecessor and built with Nikon ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses, the new MONARCH 5 is a serious contender to be the "go-to" binocular for any outdoor enthusiast. The MONARCH 5 delivers sharp, high-contrast views that are the result of a state-of-the-art optical system. Featuring Nikon's premium ED Glass lenses and Dielectric High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coatings, the MONARCH 5 displays exceptionally accurate color reproduction and a clear, natural looking image. Each of its Eco-Glass lenses are Fully Multicoated to provide maximum resolution and light transmission. The MONARCH 5 binocular comes in black finish and is available in 8x42, 10x42 and 12x42 magnifications. It utilizes Nikon's high-eye point design to provide a clear field-of-view and long eye-relief. The long eye-relief ensures a sufficient space between the user's face and the binoculars' eyecups to make them comfortable for everyone, even for those wearing eyeglasses. The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to find the right eye positioning for extended periods of use. The MONARCH 5 also utilizes a smooth central focus knob that makes it easy to bring object into focus for fast viewing. Built for extreme usage, the MONARCH 5 is Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, making it completely waterproof and fog proof. A protective, rubber-armored coating strengthens its durability and ensures a non-slip grip during wet and dry conditions.

Well enough about that, now on to the binoculars themselves. In a word, they're spectacular. I'm used to some of the older and larger Porro prism binoculars or the smaller, cheap roof prism type. But regardless of style, I've never looked through a nicer pair of optics.
Before buying these, whenever I was out somewhere in nature, I'd always wished I had some nice binoculars with me, and since I have a big trip coming up, I thought I'd spend the money on a nice pair, and these blew me away. The very close minimum viewing distance is nice, as it makes looking at birds and squirrels a lot of fun. The long distance adjustment works very well, too. Looking past the optics, I wanted a pair that would be small enough to carry with me and won't be a burden (like while camping), but something large enough to provide good magnification. These are pretty much just the right size, as they're easily packable, but still large enough to feel good in the hand and have just enough weight to easily hold them steady. The rubber coating has a nice feel, and I think it should be able to protect them well. The objective lenses are set back enough that I don't have to worry about them taking damage if it bumps up against something flat. The objective lens covers are very nice and snap on tight. The tripod mount threading is nice, as securing it to something with legs really helps with stability.
I am looking forward to using these more thoroughly on our trip and will try to post back about how well they work.
The pros: These are solidly built, no joke feel like a tank would not worry about dropping these at all and they are pretty compact for the magnification.
These might have been the top dogs back in the day, but they are nothing more then overpriced junk now.
Chromatic Abberation Control: 3/10
Wanted to add that I bought The Nikon Prostaff 8 x 42 3s wgich was 1/3 the price and it had much less noticeable color fringing, my unit must omhave been defective, but first impressions are everything especially when products are hhndreds of dollars.

Status update: I contacted Nikon and they say this is the only lens cap that is available and that it will stay on while the binoculars are folded in for storage. Not a very satisfactory answer, so I've reduced my rating to 4 stars from 5. I am now on the search for either some other product's lens caps or a way to modify these. When you have them around your neck going through brush and tall grasses, you don't want the lens cover to fall off. A snug fit would be much better.
The only thing that is not perfect is the eye relief and position is not very forgiving with or without glasses. This may just be a function of 10 power vs 8.
It was love at first sight!
The case is well padded but the cover is not quite covering the binoculars.
As it would not protect the binoculars if it started to rain, I bought a better case made by Steiner, Germany.
Happy Trails! :)
