Nikon Introduces PROSTAFF 5 Binoculars
July 9, 2013
Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of four new PROSTAFF 5 binoculars: the 8x42, 10x42, 10x50 and 12x50.
These new models — even more user-friendly than the existing PROSTAFF 7 range — are perfect for people who are using fully waterproof binoculars for the first time for nature observation and other outdoor activities.
All four offer a bright field of view. Nikon particularly designed the two 50mm models of the series for users who put priority on a brighter field of view as they often observe their subjects in darker conditions.
- Multilayer-coated lenses for bright images
- Long eye relief design ensures a clear field of view, even for eyeglass wearers
- Turn-and-slide rubber eyecups with multi-click facilitate easy positioning of eyes at the correct eyepoint
- Waterproof (up to 1m/3.3 ft. for 10 minutes) and fog-free with nitrogen gas
- Lightweight body uses fibreglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin
- Eco-glass optics that are free of lead and arsenic are used for all lenses and prisms
