The mechanics are also excellent. The eye piece and central focus wheels rotate easily and smoothly.
Given that they are gas filled and waterproof, for someone that enjoys the great outdoors you could not buy better at this price.
But don't let that put you off - the kit is great, and I am sure I can find replacement lens caps with a better spec.
I would recommend these to anyone contemplating a binocular purchase - they are still lighter than many other less powerful models with smaller objective lenses. They are also waterproof - an indispensable feature for the UK weather. The wide strap also means that you don't notice the extra weight around your neck either.
Two tiny gripes :
1. The lens caps can easily get lost
2. The eyepiece diopter adjustment tends to stiffen up, causing the binoculars to "fold up" when you try to rotate it while observing. If you rotate it a few times before focusing, it's no problem, and this may just be a feature of my pair, or that they are just new. My son has a pair of Nikon Travelite compacts, and these have a nice easy "click" mechanism foe eyepiece adjustment. A shame this feature is not on the Sporter EX. Nikon is a quality reliable brand, so you can buy with confidence.
Well worth the money, and if you look carefully on Amazon, you'll probably find that you can pick up the 10 x 50 cheaper than the 10 x 42.
I found them a little bit long in length, and a little heavier than smaller ones.
The lens caps are light and flemsy... could be easily lost....... a pity really.
However for what I wanted them for, the size and weight was acceptable.
The fact there waterproof is excellent.....
However I really like them. easily focused and you get a very good clear image with them.
(which is the most important part)
I am pleased, quality of Nikon is very good and the image you view is clear and excellant.
Finally i must say they are value for money........
P.S. Pay particular attention to there weight and size when your ordering.
making sure they satisify in this regard for what you,ll be using them for.
Otherwise you will enjoy.........
I found these to be an absolute bargain for the price I paid and would definitely recommend these to anyone wanting a good quality pair of binoculars that will last a lifetime
The only real negative is that the eye covers are simply not fit for purpose, they just will not stay on the binoculars. They fall off if you hold the binoculars upside down so they have no chance of staying in place on a long walk. As they don't have any attachment to the strap you are almost guaranteed to lose them. If you don't care about the eyepiece covers then these are 4 star binoculars.

For the price the optical quality is excellent. They are about the strongest magnification you can handhold and the extra light gathering of lens makes a big difference.Published on 4 Dec. 2013 by Em
