The 8x56 Monarch 5 Binocular from Nikon features high-transmission optics and a weather-sealed housing that deliver the image quality and reliability characteristic of Monarch series binoculars. This large-objective model from the Monarch 5 lineup features 56mm objectives and the same premium, eco-friendly glass optics as the rest of the Monarch 5 binoculars. The lens system is made of lead and arsenic-free, extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements, which efficiently transmit light through the optical channel and maximize image brightness.

To complement the high-transmission ED lens system, Nikon equipped the 8x56 Monarch 5 with multicoated roof prisms that render a luminous view that is packed from edge-to-edge with sharpness and contrast. Phase-corrective prism coating aligns the incoming wavelengths of light, preserving color fidelity and detail; a highly-reflective dielectric mirror prism multi-layer coating maximizes light seen through the eyepieces. This range of optical technologies allows the Monarch 5 binoculars to produce lifelike colors and impressive brightness—even while viewing during twilight hours or under heavy cloud cover.

In addition to their premium optics, the 8x56 Monarch 5 boasts the same user-friendly handling and all-terrain construction as their smaller-objective stable mates. A rubber armored body with sculpted grips gives these glasses an ergonomic feel and provide slip-resistance. The nitrogen-filled fogproof housing is built to endure long days of birding or hunting in heavy rain or extreme humidity. Other user-friendly features include a mounting socket for a tripod adapter and twist-up rubber eyecups with multiple click-stop positions and a 20mm eye relief that permits a comfortable viewing distance even for eyeglass wearers.

The combination of a weather-sealed housing with ED lenses, long eye relief, and 56mm objectives make this configuration of the Monarch 5 a full-featured binocular for almost any mid-range observation.

    Excellent binoculars

    Comments about Nikon 8x56 Monarch 5 Binocular (Black):

    Awesome product, high contrast easy to use. The color correction is outstanding. Crisp image to the edge. No noticeable color on bright objects. After a lengthy cool down period. Star images rounded up better. The neck strap is too short and I am not fond of the eye lens covers. Excellent product.
