Nikon Introduces MONARCH 7 8x30/10x30 Binoculars

August 19, 2013

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of its MONARCH 7 binoculars 8x30 and 10x30. These new models complement the existing MONARCH 7 8x42 and 10x42 binoculars.

Integrating two values that Nikon has consistently pursued, namely, technical perfection and practical utility, the MONARCH 7 8x42 and 10x42 made their sensational debut last year. The new MONARCH 7 8x30 and 10x30 models now join this series, upholding that same level of incomparable optical performance. Brighter images and natural colours are realised by Nikon's optical technologies such as ED glass (extra-low dispersion glass), dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating and phase-correction-coated roof prisms.

Built small and compact, these amazing binoculars are suited for those who seek high-performance products, and also for birdwatching enthusiasts who demand high performance in a compact body.
