Nikon introduces three new 56mm-diameter models of Monarch 5 binoculars

Nikon today announced three new 56mm-diameter models of its popular Monarch 5 series binoculars. This follows the launch in May 2013 of models with a 42mm-diameter objective. The new Monarch 5 series binoculars come in three configurations: 8×56, 16×56 and 20×56. They all achieve bright images even in dark conditions and even at the low magnification of 8x. The 16x and 20x models also provide a wide field of view so the user can easily spot a subject from a long distance. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass is used in all models to minimise chromatic aberrations.

NikonBrighter images and more natural colours are ensured by the employment of a dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating. These and other features make the new models ideal for professionals engaged in nature observation and protection. Birdwatchers will love them, too.
