  • Multicoated Optics
  • Center Focus Wheel
  • Twist-Up Rubber Eyecups
  • Rubber Armored Housing

The black 10x42 Aculon A211 Binocular from Nikon is a handheld fixed-magnification optic with multicoated aspherical lenses and an ergonomically-designed housing. For the redesigned Aculon series, Nikon packages the Aculon A211 binoculars with environmentally-friendly Eco-Glass elements composed of responsibly-sourced arsenic-free material. The Aculon binocular's Porro prism design delivers enhanced depth of field, and its multicoated aspheric optical path delivers the image clarity and flat FOV demanded by nature observers.

Also new to the 2013 version of the Aculon binocular is a sculpted rubber-armored housing that is designed to fit comfortably into the observer's hand and provide non-slip handling. Grooved ridges atop the housing and a generously-sized focusing wheel enable adjustments to the interpupillary distance and the point of focus even while wearing gloves. Nikon's Turn-and-Slide eyecups allow quick re-setting of the eye relief. The combination of image quality and user-friendly design make the 10x42 Aculon A211 a cost-effective option for intermediate to long-range glassing.

          Comments about Nikon 10x42 Aculon A211 Binocular (Black):

          The only negative I gave it one less star for, is that eyeglass wearers (who need them when they use binoculars), will not find these have enough eye relief for them.With that said, I think these are fantastic binoculars, and even more so for the money not spent on higher priced bins.These are super sharp in the central field of view, and objects just snap into focus-just like my 7x35 Aculons-I could not be more pleased with the performance or view. The detail you can see with these are worth the little extra bulk of a Porro prism binocular-though I find these very ergonomic for my medium-large man's hands. Small handed people might find it a bit of a challenge, but don't dismiss them until you've tried-they are well worth a try.If you haven't had a high powered bin like 10x, then they might be a little hard to hold steady at first, but with some practice and under the right conditions, they are very useful to have around to see that extra detail with a closer view.Nikon has done a great job with the Aculons. I have not tried the 8x, or 12x (and higher), but judging by the 7x and 10x, you would be hard pressed to find a better bin for anywhere near the purchase price. And B&H is the place to buy them-their integrity and good prices are a welcome friend on the net, I have found.Enjoy the 3D view-once you have, you might not be using roof prism binoculars much afterwards!

          Performance and quality are wonderful. Although it's heavier than what I'm used to, overall it's a great piece for birdwatching. Nikon never disappoints.

            Best Pricing on Binoculars

            By Ms. B

            from Alabama

            Comments about Nikon 10x42 Aculon A211 Binocular (Black):

            The pricing is perfect $ less than box stores in our area. Better service considering most of the box stores were sold out or the workers were lazy and wouldn't acknowledge us to open the case. Shipping was super fast 3 days! Obky downfall which would have happened either way was the binoculars come with a strap, carrying case and lens covers and we purchased a carry case..ooh well it can be used fir something else. Other than that we are super pleased with our order

                I use it for bird and boat watching at the shore, and it is easy and smooth to focus, and reasonably light to carry. Detents on the right-eye focus make occasional fine tuning quick and easy. Great binocs that you can use without a tripod.
