      Comments about Nikon 12x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

      These are excellent for the price. The sweet spot is brilliant with great detail, color, and 3D feeling. But, the rim of the FOV is distorted. This is too be expected at this price-point. If you are concentrating on a little bird in the sweet spot, you may not notice the distortion at all, but it is there. Panning will make it more obvious.
      They feel very sturdy and comfortable in my hands.
      I wear glasses and have no problem.
      I have owned them for 15 years. They are my "backyard" binoculars.

          Comments about Nikon 12x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

          Optical technology has come a long way since I bought my last pair of binoculars about a decade ago. I wanted a kind of "universal" binoculars that would work well in daytime (wildlife viewing), and reasonably well at nighttime (astronomy). These Nikons are amazing! The optical clarity of this unit is impressive. I could clearly see the faces of sea lions from nearly a mile away, and I could see the the full moon with a new level clarity, like never before :)At this price point, I could not be happier with the performance of these binoculars, and the $ gift card only sweetened the deal. On a somewhat negative note, these binoculars are 12x50. They bring distant images right up to you, but all those lenses have their weight. These binoculars might be a little heavy for some individuals to handle. For me however, the clarity and performance justify the weight. So what if my arms need a break? I have something to look forward to, literally.

            Comments about Nikon 12x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

            I wanted a pair of powerful binoculars for travel out west, that produced a clear and sharp image.
            In testing them locally I found them to be exceptionally sharp, especially in night use. The only problem I have is they are larger and heavier then I would like, and have a little shake at the longer focal length. I did purchase the tripod adaptor which helps with that problem.

              I have owned 5 pairs of binoculars. These are the brightest, have the crispest image, no discernable distortion, are fairly light for a 12 x 50, and seem well-built.

              At the price, I am well pleased. Nikon makes a good product.

                This binocular was purchased to replace a Bell&Howell 8x40, for bird-watching and general nature studies. This Nikon does not disappoint--very high quality in construction, image sharpness and light gathering. I was afraid that with the 12 power I would notice a more shaky image--but I had no problem viewing long distances without a tripod. Completely satisfied!

                        We use these to watch the wildlife around our Florida area. With a pond right outside our rear door, we often get to see exotic birds and fauna up close and personal.

                        These are high powered, sharp and easy to focus and very durable, impervious to the high humidity of this area.

                        Other than size, necessary to provide this level of magnification with light gathering lenses that make clear vision easy, absolutely perfect!

                            My husband had a pair, I liked them so much I decided to get a pair. Great when your out near dawn or dusk. Eyecups adjust well with or without glasses.

                            Great grip and perfect fit. A little heavy but extremely high quality.
