Nikon 7573 overview

  • 1Description

Engineered for detailed long-range observation, the black Nikon 12x50 ProStaff 5 Binocular gives users the ability to make positive identification of large game animals, read buoys, or spot obstacles at great distances. Its 12x magnification draws distant objects in for better viewing, while the large 50mm objectives offset the dimming that can occur with high magnification and boost the light-gathering ability to improve views in the early morning and late evening or in foggy and cloudy weather. With the combination of objective lens size, optical coatings, and comfortable eye relief, users can enjoy bright and clear views in most lighting conditions.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that make this binocular durable and comfortable to use. It has a lightweight, reinforced polycarbonate resin chassis that helps to reduce the weight despite the large objectives, and is protected by black rubberized armor. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible, as well as resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations and environmental conditions. A tethered 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 can clip onto the neck strap to keep them safe from blowing overboard or being lost on the forest floor.

From the boat to the blind to the range, this ProStaff will quickly become your go-to binocular for your all-weather observing needs.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 12x magnification makes this an ideal optic for long-range observation
  • Large 50mm objective lens diameter draws in more light than smaller models to help offset the dimming of the view that is common when using high-power optics, especially in challenging light
  • Roof prism light path ensures optical tubes remain thin for a compact form factor
  • Anti-reflection multi-coated optics maximize light transmission across the entire visible spectrum for accurate color rendition and improved contrast and clarity
  • 246' 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
  • Twist-up/click-stop rubber eyecups for use with or without eyewear
  • 15.5mm eye relief helps to reduce eyestrain and improves viewing comfort
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils in low light to help keep the full scene in view
Construction Details
  • Environmentally friendly Eco-Glass is made without lead or arsenic
  • 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 resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes and environmental conditions
  • One-piece tethered ocular rainguard protects eyecups from water pooling in them from rain or spraying water when hanging from the neck
  • Objective lens caps can be clipped to neck strap to avoid losing them during observation sessions
  • Weight: 28 ounces

Nikon 7573 reviews

12x50 ProStaff 5 Binocular (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice glasses Haven't had for very long yet but the glasses are great. Good feel in hand and not very heavy. Viewing is excellent at longer ranges as well as closer up. Will be using these on trip to Africa in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent overall; misleading answers from B&H. All the hype applies, yet, as I have elucidated elsewhere, the staff is sorely misinformed regarding removal, counter-clockwise, of the central axis cap. If one actually manages to get it off, the two barrels of the binocular will become noticeably loose. Nikon amicably promised to replace the one I needed to damage in order to remove, but it has taken six months to get it here. Their excuse: more than one item, but an unidentified number needs to be gathered in order to send the shipment from Japan. It's plain absurd...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pros: Great optics - clear, crisp, and powerful. Easy to hand-hold. Cons: Nothing to hold the covers on, so they could potentially be lost easily.
