Nikon E series first launched in 1978 and became upgraded in 1999 under the name E II. With two compact models for daytime use with 8x30 and 10x35 configurations this traditionally designed Porros offer one of the widest field of view on the market, even with the 10x model. They are built out of magnesium alloy, eco-glass and fully multi-coated optics with anti-reflective abilities. The traditional black rugged leather armouring makes them incredibly appealing for every enthusiast. They are suitable for wildlife observations of the birds and other animals, and are very hand-friendly even when hiking, traveling or going on a safari.
Nikon E II offers classical compact binoculars that implement modern optical technology for amazing viewing in the nature. They are built out of Magnesium alloy chassis, the material that significantly reduces the weight. This way they are incredibly comfortable to carry in hands or around the neck, even for longer periods of time. Even though the Porro prism design makes them quite sturdy and stiff, the E II binoculars are incredibly hand-friendly thanks to not only magnesium alloy but also thinner leather armouring and smaller dimensions due to compact-size. These great companions have traditional design using black leather, which is rugged and helps to hold them in your hands quite firmly without worrying that they might slip out of your hands. E II binoculars are splash-proof and able to withstand a drizzle, but it’s still recommended you avoid getting them in contact with great extent of water or extreme temperatures. They are also tripod adaptable.
E II series offer great optical performance which is the result of incredibly bright Porro prism design that helps to draw in more light than modern roof prism binoculars. The glass elements are made out of special eco-glass that doesn’t include any lead or arsenic materials that could harm the environment in the process of making. Lenses are also equipped with fully multi-coated system which significantly increases the light transmittance, so we can easily say the E II binoculars will perform well even in the dim light conditions. These modern optical technologies help not only enhance the brightness, but also give great resolution from amazing color rendering to rich contrast. The images are incredibly lifelike and razor-sharp without inner reflection, thanks to anti-reflective abilities of the coatings. E II series offers central focusing mechanism with rubber and grippy wheel, together with right-eye diopter that helps to eliminate differences in eyesight. They also integrate twist-up eyecups to eliminate vignetting even if you are wearing eye glasses, since you have more possibilities to adjust the distance of your eyes to the ocular lens.
The E II comes in a padded leather case where you can store them and use them for protection. There are also objective lens covers and rainguards added to protect lenses from scratches or damage.
