        Comments about Nikon 8x36 Monarch ATB Binocular (Black):

        Very sharp and bright - only negative in my opinion is that the eyepiece cap is not very secure, and when the eyecups are retracted, the optics are pretty vulnerable. Lens caps, while fitting snugly, have a slot for attaching to strap, but no other mesna of securing. Otherwise, these are really sturdy optics for a great price.

          Comments about Nikon 8x36 Monarch ATB Binocular (Black):

          Both front lens caps on my "Monarch" binoculars disappeared in the first month. I have since learned from other bird watchers that these poorly-designed caps for Nikon's very popular "ATB" and "X binocular series have been a continual problem and un-redesigned for almost ten years!
          Why can't Nikon provide a re-designed cap?

            Comments about Nikon 8x36 Monarch ATB Binocular (Black):

            I recently purchased the Nikon Monarch 8 X 36 binoculars from B&H. I use the Monarchs when I go on nature trips. I'm a photographer and the Monarchs are very valuable for spotting wildlife in the field.

            The Monarchs have crystal clear optics and I give them an excellent rating of 5 stars. They are lightweight and a very nice size (comfortable). Check the Monarchs out - its Nikon and they are great!
