      Comments about Nikon 16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

      Close birdwatching the day they arrived proved amazingly clear with good contrast. Last night, viewing Comet Lovejoy with the use of the included tripod adapter on a Gitzo Tripod, the scatter of light was minimal. It provided great views of star clusters and the Orion Nebula. The eye objective with adjustable depth eyecups for eyeglasses was a nice bonus. Well constructed and water resistant against evening dew also a bonus. The assembly of the case could be better.

      Pleased with 16x50 Nikon binoculars

            Comments about Nikon 16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

            I bought thereto use for general astronomical viewing in an area with lots of town light. They're great for this and have exceeded my hopes. They also provided enough magnification to see Comet Lovejoy recently. I strongly recommend using them on a tripod. They come with a basic tripod mount adapter, which works fine.

            I can't really say anything about terrestrial use, since we've only had them out at night, but the image is sharp and bright, and the adjustments easy to make.

            The only reason they didn't get the 5th star is that on bright planets, especially Jupiter, there's a faint green edge, so the optics could be a little more precise, but it's not problem. Jupiter's moons were bright and sharp.

            Overall, they're great for the price and for our intended application.

              Comments about Nikon 16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

              I'm a birder of sorts, and my wife and I have two pairs of 10x50 Nikons that work just fine. I wanted more enlargement, and these 16x50s are just what the doctor ordered. They don't weigh but a few ounces more than the 10x50s, but seeing something at 60% larger is a real thrill! The housing is comfortable and provides a good grip, and the lens protectors fit very snugly. The eyepiece adjustments are easy to use and change for different users. I love 'em! You'll only find a problem in getting black outs now and then if you don't get your eyes in the right registration with the lenses. Once you figure that out, there's no problem. Focusing is a dream; at 50-feet or so, you focus by mere inches. You won't be dissatisfied with these. Nikon is the best!

              Heavy, yes, and that's the one and only con I have for this well built piece ( some may need a tripod ) The optics are amazing, the view is so bright and clear and I am so surprised at how crisp and detailed the subject was at a distance of a couple miles, I've owned binoculars, spotting scopes and telescopes all my life but when I hold this Nikon I can feel it is a substantial piece, and compact for it's power and a precision optic that can't be beat for the price, just remember 16 power is on the border of hand held and using a tripod...you won't be sorry with this one!

                  I'm using these because I live in a highrise with the best view in the world and wanted to get a better view of the boats and wildlife from my balcony. Glad I chose the 16x50's instead of 10x50's - the extra magnification is helpful. The 16x50's are right on the verge of requiring a tripod (not necessary, but very helpful), and when looking at slow-moving things (boats, the moon, buildings, etc) I always use the tripod. No fog issues, even with cold a/c inside, straight to hot humid Fort Lauderdale outside. I would have given 5-stars, but one point is subtracted because I don't feel that the tripod mount tightens enough - it's a touch wobbly - but then again, maybe I'm just doing something wrong and ill figure it out with a few more weeks of playing with it.

                          I use the 16x50 Action binocs for animal spotting in conjunction with my photography work. I bought them to have the ability to "reach out and touch" the animals at a distance and they do this job VERY well. SOlid build by what I can see. Rubber coated. NIce case but no carry strap for the case. Tripod mount works fine and you WILL need it to steady the view. These binocs are powerful and hand holding for a solid steady image is next to impossible if what you are viewing is far off. Step down 1 perhaps for better hand hold viewing. BUT, if you want to get out to great distances,(you should see the moon through these things!) THIS IS THE PAIR FOR YOU. I think for the quality I am getting, the price point is fair. I give this product 5 stars as for what I bought it for, it functions flawlessly. With the lifetime warrenty should ANYTHING go wrong with it, why NOT get it?

                              I mainly use it for hunting or when I am sighting in a new rifle and it is just the right power for 200 yards.

                              The one complaint i have is that there is no microfiber towel that comes with it... For the money you spend you would think that the towel to clean the lenses would be included.

                                      Very good clarity of view and light enough to use hand held. Nice ergonomic feel with rubber coating and tripod adapter included is a pluss for long term viewing. Eyecups adjust well with or without glasses.

                                          Comments about Nikon 16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular:

                                          After having purchased the 7x35 binoculars from the same series for birdwatching, and being very impressed with their quality, I decided to also try the binoculars with the highest magnification in this series, the 16x50. The large magnification is a good choice to observe things that are far away and not fast moving, e.g. wildlife, or also (distant) plane spotting, or watching ships. A 16x magnification results of course in a much smaller field of view, and image quality, although very good, is not quite as good as for the 7x35. Part of this is probably also due to the fact that 16x magnification is best handled with a tripod or the binoculars resting on something. Luckily these come with a tripod mount already! But they are still light enough to be held by hand, and I am very happy with using them in the field without tripod. Again, solidly made and a great value!
