Nikon 7579 overview

  • 1Description

Nikon's 8x30 Monarch 7 ATB Binocular takes the features of the 42mm models and puts them into a smaller and lighter chassis to create a highly portable optic engineered for performance in all weather.

Outfitted with anti-reflection, fully multi-coated, extra-low dispersion glass elements and highly reflective dielectric-coated and phase-corrected roof prisms, the images produced are bright and clear with high-contrast and accurate color rendition and minimal color fringing across the entire wide field of view. Its 8x magnification brings subjects up close, without sacrificing the field of view or narrowing the exit pupil too much. The 30mm objectives boost its light-gathering ability versus compact models, without the bulk and weight of full-sized ones that can cause fatigue while hanging around the neck or when held up to the face. With the combination of spacious field of view and glass, prism, and optical coatings, users can enjoy a comfortable and immersive observational experience while on the move in the field or sightseeing around town.

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.

From birdwatching, to orienteering, to sightseeing, the 10x30 Monarch 7 is built to be your constant companion for all your glassing needs.

Optical Performance
  • 8x power magnifies objects without sacrificing field of view or exit pupil
  • 30mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability versus compact models without the bulk or weight of full-sized ones

  • 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 60° apparent angle of view presents a panoramic view with an immersive observational experience
  • 435' 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

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: 15 ounces

    Nikon 7579 reviews

    8x30 Monarch 7 ATB Binocular (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Binoculars Having used a Swarovski 8.5x42 EL SV, it was a great comparison with this Nikon. Image quality and brightness is outstanding. Depth of field actually better than the Swarovski's. However it's not a flat field, and that's where the big difference is. In addition eye placement is important as well. Rated 4 stars due to those reasons. Only main issue is the eye guards. They DO NOT STAY ON. Common Nikon! Really? It's a simple thing to create.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright Good clear view even at dusk, but what surprised me the most was that at dusk, they are brighter than my Swarovski EL's. Not as sharp as the Swarovskis (duh), but brighter. In sunlight, the Monarch 7 image was clear and crisp. Definitely reocmmend especially if you don't want to spend a lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Nikon Quality and Performance Needed a lightweight binocular for a field trip we have scheduled. I had already purchased an Alpen 599 but the limited field of view and my hand movement was too pronounced. Because of the size and weight I decided to keep the Alpen plus my wife can use them (she prefers the compact size). I have 2 older (over 30 years) Nikon compact binoculars and am very pleased with them. To me, Nikon binoculars (the better ones) were always too expensive to justify the cost. With the current discount the price still seemed high for the Monarch 7, but a bit more reasonable. Since I already had the compact 10x from Alpen, I decided to get the 8x Nikon. Well, I couldn't be more pleased. You can check out the specs for field of vision and so forth on the spec page.From personal experience, I can tell you the wider field of view makes a world of difference both in locating objects and reducing the amount of noticeable hand shake. The added weight of the Nikon (about 7 oz.) as opposed to the Alpen probably helps. The optics are crystal clear and at night I can still see fine. The weight isn't bad considering these are not compact/pocket binoculars. It is comfortable to wear around the neck with the wider strap. The attached front and real lens covers are nice, no more worrying about dropping them or finding a place to store them. The case has a belt loop, no strap which is fine by me. I prefer the weight on the hips rather than around my neck. The case also has plenty of room for the neck strap. The older Nikon compacts also had plenty of room for neck straps. It really bothers me when they don't allow enough room to close the case when the newer wide neck straps are attached. The Alpen has this issue with its tight fitting case.The Nikon Monarch feels very solid and the mechanisms are smooth. It is comfortable to hold and not large or as obtrusive as full sized binoculars. The ED glass and water proof features are nice. I can just rinse them off after a dusty day of trekking. The weight is under a pound and that can be significant when you have 3-5 pounds of camera and glass around your neck already (another reason to keep the Alpen). My full sized binoculars are all in the 40+ oz. range.Hopefully these will last me another 30+ years, probably longer than I will need them. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight High Quality Optics I am an avid birder, and my primary binoculars are a pair of Zeiss 8 x 42 FL's. I purchased the Nikon Monarch 7 8 x 30's for my wife to use on an upcoming Tanzania trip. I haven't had Nikon binoculars before, but while working part-time in a sporting goods store I had the chance to examine many Monarch riflescopes, and was very impressed the optical quality, particularly at their price point. My impression was that they were as sharp as, and brighter than many scopes costing two to three times as much. Other than the known brand quality, the biggest selling point for me on the Nikons was the weight, at 15 oz. about 8 - 10 oz,. lighter than many 8 x 32's. Weigh is certainly an issue for international travel (and for smaller users, say a 5'1 100 lb. wife). As I had a short birding trip planned to Phoenix AZ, I decided to take the Nikons instead of my Zeiss. Overall, I was very pleased with the handling and optical quality. I have fairly large hands, and holding the binos and operating the controls was not an issue. The focus was fast, but not touchy, and the eye relief for me (I am a glasses wearer) was excellent. Optically, the image was sharp and no color issues were noted. The sharpness appeared good near the edges of of the field, but I am not fanatical about that - after all, what I look at is usually centered. Contrast and low flare on backlight objects was good. And the field of view is phenomenal. A quick comparison shows them to be about equal to my Zeiss in that regard. I estimate close focus to be about 6 feet. The light weigh made them a pleasure to carry, particularly for an old guy at 6,000 ft. Ounces do count. The only issue that cropped up was that the plastic cover piece for the front of the hinge assembly worked loose. Fortunately, I noticed it before it came off entirely and re-tightened it. To sum up, I am very pleased with them, especially at the price. I'll probably use them locally when I don't expect to encounter low light issues, and the size and weight will allow me to pack them as a back-up set on trips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Bright and Light Weight! We tried the Monarch 7, 8 x 42, which were great and provided excellent light. But for $100 less, these are considerably lighter and the light is still great! Just took them out birding and they were wonderful. Have never had a great binocular before these, so not much good to compare to, but as newbies, we're feeling very pro. About to order a second

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent small binoculars I bought these to replace an older pair on Monarch 7 (8x42) that I have used for birding for years. I am constant amazed at what a great pair of binos this series is at the price. A recent review of birding binoculars in various price range (available online) done by the Cornell Laboratory for Ornithology rated the Monarch 7 8x42 binos a best buy in their price range. These 8x30s aren't quite as bright maybe (and weren't available at the time of the review in 2013), but they weigh 2/3 as much and are great for travel. My older 8x42 monarchs compared well to binos costing 3-5 times as much (I've actually compared them side by side in the field). This pair of 8x30s isn't quite as bright as the 8x42s I am replacing, but I wouldn't expect them to be. They are still amazingly bright though! And they are as sharp as the Monarch line is famous for. If you are shopping for a pair of binos in this price ranges and you DON'T look at monarchs, you are doing yourself a disservice. These things are much smaller than I expected, but still useable by my average adult male hands. If you have really big hands, you might find these a bit small, but for the average person they are fine. The lens caps are better than the old series of Monarchs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Nikon Monarch 7 8x30 is very nice! The new Nikon Monarch 7 8x30 is very nice! I have been using mine and I am very satisfied with it. The thing is really cute kind of like the Swarovski CL and about the same size but lighter YET! It is REALLY light. It is weird how much smaller a 30mm can be. The mechanics on it all work fine including diopter, IPD tension and eyecups and typical silky smooth Nikon focus. The accessories are all great with a nice rainguard, great strap, nice little case with belt loop and good tethered objective covers. Very typical Nikon high quality with a nice comfortable cushy rubber armour. I like it better than the Swaro CL for 1/2 the price. It has a much bigger FOV than the Swaro and in contrast to it's bigger brother the 8x42 Monarch 7 HD it is dead sharp on-axis. As sharp as my Swarovision and Conquest HD on-axis although these two do have a bigger sweet spot and of course the Swarovision has those sharp edges. IMO it is a better binoicular than it's bigger brother which too me is not that sharp on-axis. Very nice binocular if you are looking for something portable in the sub $500 range that is easy to carry around and you don't want to put up with the idiosyncrasies of a compact. I haven't looked through the new Swaro 8x25 but I will bet this little jewel will smoke it and it isn't much bigger. B&H has them in stock now and they have a no-hassle return policy.
