Nikon 7549 overview

  • 1Description

Nikon's 10x42 Monarch 7 ATB Binocular is outfitted with anti-reflection, fully multi-coated, extra-low dispersion glass elements and highly reflective dielectric-coated and phase-corrected roof prisms, to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color rendition and minimal color fringing across the entire field of view. Its wide 61° apparent angle of view helps to offset the distracting hand shake that often accompanies high-power optics such as these, allowing users to make detailed observations of distant subjects, while the 42mm objectives boost its light-gathering ability to improve views in challenging light such as during the pre-dawn and late evening hours or in foggy and cloudy weather. With the combination of spacious field of view; glass, prism, and optical coatings; and long eye relief, users can enjoy a comfortable and immersive observational experience in most lighting conditions.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make this binocular durable and comfortable to use. It has a lightweight and durable reinforced polycarbonate ATB chassis and is protected by rubberized armor that is accented with indented palm rests to give it a secure non-slip grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations and environmental conditions. A one-piece ocular rainguard covers the eyecups as the binocular hangs around the neck and prevents rain and spraying water from filling them, and the objective lens caps are also tethered to keep them safe from being lost on the forest floor. The exterior lens surfaces are treated with a clear armor coating that helps to prevent scratches and abrasions, while allowing dirt, debris, oils, and saps to be more easily cleaned off without leaving residues.

Optical Performance
  • High 10x power enables detailed observations of distant subjects
  • 42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability without adding excessive bulk or weight
  • Roof prism light path ensures optical tubes remain thin for a compact form factor
  • Extra low-dispersion glass reduces chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased contrast, improved color rendition, and sharpness without distortion across the entire field of view
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to improve light transmission, contrast, and resolution
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission across the entire visible spectrum for accurate color rendition and improved contrast and clarity
  • Highly reflective dielectric prism multi-layer coatings boost internal reflection to >99% to maintain image brightness and improve contrast and clarity
  • Wide 61° apparent angle of view reduces the appearance of the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics and provides an immersive observational experience
  • 351' field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration provides a solid and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large slip center focus wheel allows for precise focus control, even while wearing gloves
  • Right eye dioptric adjustment collar helps to compensate for individual eye prescription
  • 56-72mm interpupillary distance range allows easy use by a wide variety of people
  • Twist-up/click-stop rubber eyecups for use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter for hands-free use
  • Comfortable 16.5mm eye relief helps to reduce eyestrain and improves viewing comfort
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils when they open and dilate as light fades to keep the full scene in view
Construction Details
  • Environmentally friendly Eco-Glass is made without lead or arsenic
  • Protective lens coating on external surfaces to prevent scratches and abrasions, and to make cleaning them easier without leaving residues behind
  • Lightweight and durable fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate chassis
  • Chassis material is temperature resistant, preventing the expansion and contraction that is common with metal, which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time and prevent sharp focus
  • Textured protective rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip, especially in cold and wet weather
  • Indents on the sides of the optical tubes are ergonomically placed where the hands naturally fall for a more comfortable feel in the hand and a more secure grip
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to 3.3' (1m) for up to 10 minutes and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes and environmental conditions
  • Black coloring allows it to remain inconspicuous in all environments
  • One-piece tethered ocular rainguard protects eyecups from water pooling in them from rain or spraying water when hanging from the neck
  • Tethered fold-down objective lens caps prevents losing them during observation sessions
  • Weight: 23 ounces

Nikon 7549 reviews

10x42 Monarch 7 ATB Binoculars (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent. I have the 10x42 Monarch 5's and needed an additional binocular and the discounts available made these an inexpensive upgrade. I had very much liked the Monarch 5 and wondered whether I would be able to see much of a difference. Not too much, but they are a bit better. Once you get to a certain level of quality it seems to take a lot more money to get a little benefit. Admittedly my application is not demanding, but for the price both these and the 5's are terrific. Light weight, smooth focusing, nicely shaped and beautiful optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binoculars I wanted a new set of bino's as my previous set fell apart. I chose these based on price and reviews, especially from the Cornell Ornithology Lab, as I plan on using them mainly for birdwatching and astronomy. They arrived quickly and in great shape, and are exceeding my expectations - rugged, comfortable, with clear and sharp images. I was particularly concerned with individual eye focus, as my eyes are very different in acuity, and they adjusted perfectly and keep the adjustment. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product at a reasonable price The Monarch 7 ATB Binoculars are a considerable step up from previous generation Monarch ATB's. The wider field of view and brighter, sharper image make these an excellent choice. They have to be one of the best binoculars at this price point. They bridge the gap between previous ATB's and the more high end binoculars, such as the Nikon Premier. My wife owns the Nikon Premier binocular, and the differences between the 2 glasses is minimal. The Monarch 7 ATBs have slightly more abberation toward the edges, but in most cases you will not pay attention to this. It is also slightly less bright, but then again, the Nikon Premier is 2.5 times the cost. The Monarch 7 is also light as a feather. You can hold it to your eyes for extended periods and not feel any discomfort. They are well made and durable. They also come with objective lens covers, a rain guard, a thick comfortable strap, and a well-padded carrying case. Overall, the Monarch 7 ATB is an ideal choice for the outdoor enthusiast. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific affordable binos for birding I have an older pair of Nikon monarch binos 10 x 42, which I liked. But this new Monarch 7 has a wider field of view, a little more clarity, quick center focus knob. I have a pair of Monarch ATB 8 x 30, which are really nice and light and great sharpness of focus, but needed a little more magnification, which the Monarch 7 gives me. It has become my most used binos. And they are affordable! I also have a pair of Zeiss, much more expensive, and my new Nikon monarch 7 is far better in all respects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Low Light Optics I compared these binoculars to a less expensive pair of Leopold binocs in full daylight and was a little disappointed. They were very similar in clarity and brightness. And then I tried them at dusk, 30-40 minutes after sundown and there was no comparison. The Nikons were still very bright in the low light where the Leopolds were almost useless. Overall I am happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the Right Size I have several binoculars ranging from quite small 7X21 to 11X80 I used for astronomy and my old standby 10X50's. What they were all missing was a wide field of view. I have several telescopes and enjoy the newer wide field eyepieces and sharp optics. I started looking for a new pair of binos that weighed less, had a wide field of view and good optics. The Nikon 10X42 looked like it had the features I was looking for. They arrived promptly from B&W and the first thing to strike me was the small size and light weight. They were not much bigger than my hands and less than half the weight of the old 10X50's. The view was excellent and the very wide field was wonderful change from what I had been used to. Amazingly close focus, clever attached caps for the eyepieces and objectives and a soft case that has plenty of room are all welcome features. Under the dark sky the central stars are tack sharp and remain so out to about 80% of the field. The outer 20% is somewhat softer but still much better than any that I own. The 42mm objectives are not optimal for star gazing but but the trade off for the weight and wide field of view makes for a pleasant evening of viewing. They are the perfect compromise for daytime birding, wildlife, sports, recreation viewing and then still very good under the stars and small enough to take anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, but not perfect Pros: Very bright, great center image quality, WIDE field of view, smooth and precise control, good and practical objective lens cover. Also from the spec (without testing it myself), waterproof, very pleasant color. Cons: Edge image quality is not as good (but consider it is FREE due to the wide FOV), eye-piece cover is loose, some CA under very high contrast and white background. I have a Nikon EDG 85mm VR, so I can compare this one with the top of line Nikon (which is world class). The image quality is close in the center, very pleasant to use in Safari. With this FOV this wide, I really don't see ANY reason people still considering 8x binos. It is certainly not perfect. But when I look at other 5-star product here, this one really is a better choice. Of course, if money is not an issue at all, go for the Nikon EDG, or the new Monarch HG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I own several pairs of 8 power binoculars made by Leupold, Leica, and Swarovski. I wanted a pair of 10 power binoculars and did not want to pay up for the high end brands. These Nikon 10x42 Monarch 7s are not quite as clear as the high end ones, but for the price are great. The depth of field is not great, but that may be related to the wide angle nature of the optics.
