Nikon’s popular and successful Monarch 7 line has received new additions, including scaled-down models available in 8×30 and 10×30 sizes.
The 30mm objective lens models feature a compact body design, both measuring 4.7 inches long and 4.8 inches wide. Each are made from fiberglass reinforced polycarbonate resin and fitted with rubber armoring, according to a news release. They also weight just less than a pound and offer a field of view of 435 feet at 1,000 yards for the 8×30 model and 351 feet for the 10×30 model.
Like all of Nikon’s Monarch 7 binoculars the new 30mm models feature ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass to compensate for chromatic aberration, and dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coatings to provide users with brighter images and colors. All Monarch7 binoculars also feature multicoated lenses and prisms. The roof prisms are also phase-correction-coated, offering higher resolution, more true color rendition and contrast, according to the release.
The new 30mm MONARCH 7 models feature more than 15mm of eye relief to ensure a clear field of view for all users, even those wearing glasses, as well as multi-click turn-and-slide rubber eyecups to easily find correct eye point. These optics are waterproof and fogproof, according to the release.
