Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 Details

For the past few years, Nikon sport optics has been producing high-quality optics for all levels of enthusiasts and professionals alike. One such set of binoculars are the Monarch 5 8x56 Binoculars. The Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars are the perfect outdoor companion. These high-quality binoculars have a sleek design and deliver premium performance in all conditions.

About the Nikon Monarch 5 series

Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 Binoculars are part of Nikon's series of high-performance, fully multi-coated roof prism binoculars. All Nikon Monarch Series are winning designs that are meant to meet the needs of avid outdoor enthusiasts looking for an "all-in-one" package with great optics and excellent durability.

Nikon Monarch 5 series are high-quality binoculars, made in China. The Monarch series has been on the market for a decade and is one step higher quality of binoculars from the Prostaff series.

The Monarch 5 is available in 6 models: 8x42, 10x42, and 12x42, 8x56, 16x56, and 20x56.

Weight and Size

Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars are well-built, durable, and offer superior performance in a variety of conditions. They're also quite large and heavy, so they may not be the best option for people who need to be mobile. They're 20 cm long, 21.5 cm with extended eyecups, and around 14.5 cm wide. However, if you're looking for a high-quality pair of binoculars that will offer superior performance in most situations, the Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 is a great option.

Design and Housing of Nikon binoculars

The Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars have a classic design with all-black housing and golden details. The polycarbonate housing is rubberized, which will protect the binoculars against any impacts. They are also waterproof and fog proof, filled with dry nitrogen. Although they are tripod adaptable, it is a bit harder to reach that feature.

The single bridge design of the Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars is one of the most important features of these binoculars. It allows the barrels of the binoculars to be set very close to each other, which makes them more compact and easier to hold. This also helps with the weight distribution, making them feel lighter in your hands.

Optical properties of Nikon binoculars

The Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars are a high-quality product that provides a great viewing experience. They have Schmidt Pechan's good quality prisms and Extra-Low Dispersion ED lenses, which work together to provide a clear, sharp image with vivid colors. The binoculars also have a wide field of view, making it easy to see everything in sight. They are also very easy to use, with a close focus distance of only 7 meters.

The Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars provide an incredibly sharp image in the center and on the edges. The colors are also very vivid, which gives you a clear and realistic view of whatever you're looking at. The binoculars also provide a very flat view, which makes it feel like you're right in the picture.

Field of use of Nikon binoculars

Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 Binoculars are the perfect binocular for those who enjoy hunting at twilight. The 56mm objective lens is great for low light situations, which is just what hunters need when they’re out in the field with their prey. Nikon has also made these binoculars big and bulky to make sure that they stay on your face no matter how much movement you do while hunting.

These binoculars may not be ideal for birdwatching or hiking, but if you want a pair of good quality low light binoculars then these are definitely worth considering. As always, Nikon has put lots of thought into making this product as high quality as possible without sacrificing any features that would make it more user-friendly.

Close focus range and eye-cups 

Binoculars Nikon Monarch focuses on the needs of the user. The fluid focusing wheel makes it easy to adjust the focus for the user, and the ridges help with grip so that you don't lose your grip on the binoculars. The turning is smooth, and it only takes 1.5 turns to adjust from one end of the spectrum to the other. The close focus range is 7m.

The diopter adjustment ring is made of plastic and located on the right eyepiece. There are no numbers, just + and –. This can be a bit confusing for some people, but with a little practice, you'll be able to adjust the focus without any trouble.

The eyecups on the Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 binoculars are made from a soft rubber material and can be folded down for people who wear eyeglasses. This is a great feature because it means that you don't have to remove your glasses in order to use the binoculars.

Nikon Accessories

Nikon Monarch 5 comes with a few items: a soft bag that has no strap, a neck strap, and two plastic eyepiece covers - one for each lens. There is also an instruction manual with the information included. 

The last item in the box is rubber objective lens caps which can be attached to the barrels of the binoculars.
