The article is very helpful if you are not sure what you need and they rated the 8x42 Monarch 5 as best mid price binocular with performance that challenges $1,000 models. So I purchased them for a Christmas gift for my wife and I.
Have to say I love the 10x42 but believe the optics are even better on the 8x42. They are very bright, no distortion and incredibly fast and smooth focus. These Nikons don't use the folding eyecup on my old binoculars ane while some reviewers did not like them as an eyeglass wearer I find them superior especially if you will share the binocs with someone who does not wear glasses.
There are a lot of less expensive options out there, but this really is a case of you get what you pay for. I recommend them.
Just a tip for folks looking into bins. I'd suggest going to the local Big 5 or sporting goods store and just try out different models to see the quality and price of each one of them. This is where the difference really came in. A lot of the models we saw gave us "double vision" because of the optics being off center and feeling the higher end models really made my decision to go up in price with the pair of bins.
I went to Big 5 to check out bins and learned a lot comparing the low end sub $100 models, and sub $200 models. Right now my GF has the Leupold Rogue 8x50 but I might let her choose between the Monarch 3s and Prostaff 7s as a present and return the Big 5 pair.
For bird watching in the field my wife uses the Prostaff (because they're small and light. we're both lugging cameras with long lenses.) and I use the Monarchs. The Action binoculars are relegated to observing the back 40 through the kitchen windows. The others are good binoculars. The Monarch 5's are great.
