Nikon Monarch ATB 8X42 and 10X42 Binocular review – What is this?? Binocular reviews on a photo site? Yep! Not only do I love photography, I also really like good binoculars. The fact is that there are quite a few photographers who carry binoculars in their kit! Especially the nature/wildlife crowd.
The Nikon Monarch 7 ATB 10x42 is a great binocular, and is just a step down from the Editors' Choice Award winning Vortex Viper HD 8x42 in just about every metric, including price. The Monarch 7 produces a great image, but it is just slightly less crisp and bright than what the Viper offers.
