The Nikon Monarch 5 ATB 8x42 Binoculars (model 7576) are one of the best bird watching binoculars you can purchase. There's been a name change with these - they used to be called Monarch ATB Binoculars or the Monarch III, but are now simply the Monarch 5 line. The view all models in the popular Monarch line, view our comparison tables on our Nikon Monarch Binoculars review page.
We've done a lot of research before choosing our binoculars and decided upon the Nikon Monarch 5 ATB 8x42 Binoculars for several reasons. For the price and all the below features, we really couldn't find a better deal. We use them for leisure bird watching activities as well as in our professional work doing bird surveys.
Latest price for the brand new model of Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars at Amazon (which usually has the lowest price with free shipping): Cornell Lab of Ornithology Annual Binocular's Review:
The Nikon Monarch's are:
...clearly the top-rated of any mid-priced, full-power birding binoculars. These lightweight, waterproof, and very comfortable binoculars focus down to 6 feet (they were given the name "Monarch" to attract butterfly watchers) and offer an image and feel that surpasses many models costing two or three times more.
Only in a direct comparison with the top-priced binoculars could our reviewers discern the narrower, slightly duller image, which was not quite sharp at the edges. But with a street price well under $300, the Monarchs are a steal.
I really don't think you can beat the Nikon Monarch's for the price unless you consider something like these Zeiss 8x42 FL T Binoculars (over $1,000).
We use our Monarch's for bird watching, but we know that hunters also love them for their crisp, clear images and lightweight, rugged construction as well.
