Product Highlights
  • Aspherical Lens System

  • Center Focus Wheel
  • Twist-Up Rubber Eyecups

The black 12x50 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 with 50mm objective lenses delivers the image clarity, brightness, 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 adjustment to the eye relief. The combination of image quality and user-friendly design make the 12x50 Aculon A211 a cost-effective option for intermediate to long-range glassing.

        This set of binoculars was bought for my wife to use in her birding hobby. She already had a smaller magnification pair and has really been pleased with the closeup images she now sees!

          Comments about Nikon 12x50 Aculon A211 Binocular (Black):

          I've had and used several binoculars of various brands over the past 30+ years and these are one of the best. I know if Nikon puts their name on something it will be a good product and I wasn't disappointed. In fact for the price they work better than I expected. I had tried some Nikon 16X50 at a local retailer but I didn't care for them. Too much chromatic aberration. Too strong and hard to keep steady. These are just about right magnification wise. CA is very much reduced and they are pretty sharp. Good for general viewing and not bad for astronomy either. You can easily see the 4 major moons of Jupiter. You can adjust the eye relief to extend in steps which is a nice feature. But they do not cup around your eyes like others I have used. This helps block out stray light from the sides. Comes with a nice case, strap and lens covers. The binoculars are covered in rubber which is good protection and for gripping but makes it difficult to insert and remove from the case. You can minimize this by squeezing them together before you insert them. Other than those two minor complaints I'm very satisfied with them. I gave em 5 stars for price and performance.

                Definitely a rugged, no-slip model. The diopter adjustment is a little tricky (hard to grab and stiff to turn) but that's not a big deal, since it's probably going to be adjusted only if multiple people are looking through the binoculars.
                Other than that, I rate it A-OK -- a good bargain for a reasonable price.
