Great for People with Glasses
Nikon MONARCH 5 12x42

MONARCH 5 12×42 is all about agility and performance, even under the most impractical conditions. Equipped with powerful ED glass lenses, it is more agile and more athletic than its predecessors. This technology corrects chromatic aberrations, effectively maintaining the contrast and resolution of images. As such, the images look more natural even from afar.

If you have poor eyesight and wear corrective lenses, you won’t have difficulties using MONARCH 5 12×42. As one of the best Nikon binoculars, it boasts a high-eyepoint design, which offers a clear field of view even when you are wearing eyeglasses. There is a smooth central focus knob, too, which makes it easier for you to focus on your subjects. Additionally, it has turn-and-slide rubber eyecups, ensuring your convenience through and through.

The Dielectric High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coating applied to the lenses and prism surfaces ensure that the brightness of the images is as accurate as it is when perceived by the naked eye. With this capability, you can trust that the views are as precise as possible.

With a sleek, easy-to-grip body design, it is easy to carry. It also has a rubber-armored coating, allowing it to withstand extreme conditions. The nitrogen filling and O-Ring sealing make it waterproof and fogproof. Surely, it is the perfect binocular for everyday use.
