5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value and very well made, 8 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon Sporter EX 8x42 Binoculars (Electronics)
Bought these after reading lots of reviews of binoculars for general use and basic bird watching, Nikon are a well known make and have a good optical reputation. Came very quickly, simple but well packaged. Very good optics, clear and work well in any light, worked well for star gazing letting me pick out most constellations really easily. For general bird watching they are great, mostly I use hides so have somewhere to rest, out and about they are perhaps a little heavier than I anticipated but only noticeable if standing for a long time, watched some deer on a walk and the detail was much better than a friends binoculars. Tested the waterproofing in some heavy rain, quick wipe and good as new. Like the way the eye pieces lift on a screw mechanism and the rubber cups, only minor complaint is the lens caps aren't a single piece and I don't trust the way they clip onto the neck strap. Saw then retail for over £80 more which is always a good feeling.
