Nikon Action 8 x 40 Binocular

 

Used it to view the forest behind my house it just came alive. The view was amazingly clear it was like looking through 3-D glasses! Will definitely recommend it for first time users who want a quality product and willing to pay the premium.

Biggest bang for the money

Cannot view Terrestrial objects. Bulky

Nikon Action 8 x 40 Binocular

 

First of all, it's comfortable to hold or hang on the neck. Nice overall design. The view through the lens is very clear for a good couple of miles. It has focal adjustment and fine adjustment at right eye. My only problem is it a little hard to make...

very clear view; good focal adjustment control

little hard to make left and right focal identical

Nikon Action 8 x 40 Binocular

 

I used it for a day, but I really love it. At this price to get a binocular from a company like Nikon is really great. Pretty light so I can carry it with me for my trips. Will surely recommend to you all.

Great binocular. Easy to focus. Very light

The instructions to attach the eye cap and lens cap to the neck strap are not that good

Nikon Action 8 x 40 Binocular

 

I WAS USING A ZEISS BINOCULAR 8X40 FROM WORLD WAR 11. THE OPTICS AND CLARITY ON THIS NIKON 8X40 SURPASSES THE ZEISS AT A PRICE THAT IS AMAZINGLY LOW. IT IS EASIER TO HOLD AND QUICKER TO FOCUS.

GREAT CLARITY ESPECIALLY FOR WATCHING BIRDS

COULD NOT FIND ANY

Nikon Action 8 x 40 Binocular

 

I bought this binocular because my neighbor had the Nikon Action 7x35 and I tried it out and was impressed. I now have improved even on his with this 8x40. I might add I got it for a lesser price than he paid for his.

Optics are clear as a bell.Easy to focus and not too heavy

None that jump out at me at this time

just so you know

 

Made in People's Republic. Japanese brand, manual with lots of Japanese, but tiny, at the bottom, you see our friend, the Not-Japan. Just so you know.

I can see things closer with it

Massive (although you don't need extra support)

Product Specifications

The Nikon Action Extreme binoculars feature an all-metal chassis with lens fittings housed in a tough, lightweight polycarbonate body shell. Like all Nikon All Terrain Binoculars, the EX is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for total waterproof, fogproof and shockproof performance in any environment. The binocular bodies are ergonomically shaped, tripod adaptable and are rubber coated for a non-slip grip, whether wet or dry. The new Extreme ATB offerings utilize high-resolution lenses and prism systems crafted from Nikons exclusive Eco Glass, which is made without the use of arsenic or lead. This lens system provides an extremely clear, distortion-free image over the entire field of view. The lens elements each incorporate multi-layered anti-reflective coatings formulated to deliver optimum brightness, high contrast, true color rendition and flare-free viewing in most lighting conditions. The Extreme series binoculars each feature a unique, click-stop eyecup design that not only delivers long eye relief, but also allows for variable eye relief that is customizable to the users own eyes and eyeglasses. The binoculars are central focus with a diopter control to correct for normal right/left eye vision imbalance.
