Nikon puts a modern spin on their original 1917 design, with the black 7x15 Special Edition Binocular. Retaining the configuration and styling of the original, this compact optic has been updated with BAK4 prism glass and anti-reflective lens coatings to produce bright and clear images. All-metal construction and a reverse Porro prism design give this vintage binocular a durable feel and a pocket-sized form factor. To protect it and complete the retro-vibe, Nikon includes a brown leather carrying case.

  • 367-foot field of view at 1000 yards

7x15 Special Edition Binocular (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny but not a toy. I saw these a couple of years ago in Japan. My old binoculars needed replacing. I am a little old lady, I travel a lot, I travel very light. So, these seemed like just the ticket. When they arrived and I figured out which end was which - I was amazed at how good these are. I am heading off across the US and Canada on the train later next month - I'll take the little binoculars and will update this review if any thing comes up that will change my rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent optics when you travel light Very compact and very light, with very good optical performance. Not really for low light, but when you don't want to carry full size, or even the normal compact size binoculars, these are for you. Will slide right in any pocket, or wear around your neck and you'll hardly notice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition I have 15 pairs of high end binoculars and really didn't need another pair until I saw these.I am glad I bought them as they are really fantastic for their size. I am amazed at their quality. They also are a nice minature pair. These are smaller than opera glasses and are not cheap looking. They will attract attention. If you want them for anything in the early morning and evening these are not for you. You can fit them in the palm of you hand and shirt pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Understand the trade-offs made for compactness I bought this to replace a pair of Leica Ultravid 8x20 BL as my everyday-carry jacket-pocket binoculars. They are very compact, and unlike opera glasses they have a useful 7x magnification. The porro prism is in a reverse configuration, where the objective lenses are more narrowly spaced than the oculars, which reduces 3D separation, but as I have a strong directive eye, it doesn't make that much of a difference. Build quality is excellent (apart from the neck string that you have to knot yourself), and the supplied carrying case is a nice bonus. That said, the focusing wheel is awkwardly placed and very stiff, and takes quite a few revolutions to go from minimum focus distance to infinity. The binocular housing expands as you focus (not internal focusing), which means they are not going to be fully watertight. Eye relief is also inadequate for eyeglass wearers (I have a fairly moderate prescription). Like all small binos, they are not forgiving of poor eye placement. Image quality is decent, but not outstanding given the small aperture. There is noticeable curvature of field, but no chromatic aberrations that I can detect. On paper the 7 degree field of view is more than the 6.6 of the Nikon High Grade 7x15 monocular I also own, but in practice the small eyepiece design and eye relief make the usable FOV smaller. Close-focus distance is decent at 2 meters, but the stiff focusing wheel means these are not going to be a butterfly enthusiast's binoculars of choice. I think these binoculars are great for the purpose I bought them for: a lightweight pair you almost forget you are carrying with you at all times. A monocular can also serve that purpose, including Nikon's excellent High Grade series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great things do come in small packages These have a clear image over the entire viewing area. The all metal construction feels like a quality product as soon as you pick them up.
