Nikon Introduces New MONARCH 7 Binoculars
July 12, 2012
Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of its MONARCH 7 binoculars 8×42 and 10×42—premium models within the established MONARCH series.
The MONARCH 7 is the result of Nikon's pursuit of two values—technical perfection and practical usability. Incorporating high optical performance in a compact body to follow Nikon's exclusive premium model EDG series, the New MONARCH 7 adopts ED glass (extra-low dispersion glass) and dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating. This delivers superbly bright, beautifully defined images, as well as the wider apparent field of view, unprecedented for this class of binoculars. The Nikon MONARCH 7 is best suited for serious enthusiasts, assuring a superior view.
- Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass for chromatic aberration compensation and brighter, clearer viewing
- Wide apparent field of view (58.4° for 8×42, 60.7° for 10×42)
- Dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating ensures superior transmittance uniformity across the visible range resulting in brighter images and more natural colors
- All lenses and prisms are multilayer-coated for the brightest images
- Scratch-resistant coating is applied to the outside surfaces of objective and eyepiece lenses
- Phase-correction-coated roof prisms for high resolution
- High-eyepoint design provides a clear field of view even for eyeglass wearers
- Waterproof (up to 1m/3.3 ft. for 10 minutes) and fog-free with O-ring seals and nitrogen gas
- Turn-and-slide rubber eyecups with multi-click facilitate easy positioning of eyes at the correct eyepoint
- Flip-down objective lens caps
