    Nikon Action 7×35 EX Extreme ATB Binocular

      I use my binoculars almost exclusively for hunting, scouting, and navigation aboard my yacht. I compared these Nikon 7X35s with: Tasco 7X35 wide angles from 1978; Pursuit 8X42 roof prisms from 2015; and Binolyt 7X50 marine binoculars from 2005. With 50mm optics the Binolyts, which exceed the Nikons in build and quality, are an unfair comparison and they are quite heavy to carry around the forest. The Pursuit binoculars are quite good for the money, but as roof prisms are not optically up to either the Nikon or the 45 year old Tascos. Nor are they particularly light, weighing in the same as the Nikon and only slightly less than the vintage Tascos. The most important thing of note is that while all three of my other binoculars share one thing in common — excellent blackening within the tubes with everything treated to be anti-reflective. The Nikons, viewed head on, look like the front end of a ’59 Cadillac. Shiny metal and no effort to treat tubes and mounts with anti-reflective coatings. It didn’t take long on forums to find that other users are noticing glare under some circumstance — typically on the beach and watching birds. I contacted Nikon about this who first told me they don’t claim the interior to be blackened. When I sent photos of the box which clearly shows the claim they came back to me suggesting that I send them in under warranty for “service”. The box states: “Internal blackening minimizes light loss inside binocular tubes.” This is not true. The cutaway illustration on the box also shows the blackening on the interior. Many other references on the web offer this quality as a selling point. As the cost of shipping these to Nikon would simply add more cost to the Nikons and leave me with optics that have been disassembled, never a good idea on something only a couple of weeks old, I have declined and decided to keep them as “cheap” glasses. While the Nikons do have many fine qualities, it might be worthwhile considering Bushnell or another no-name brand as this is already the low end of the market, but which may be equal and less-espensive. In a direct comparison, as you can see by the photos, the Nikon and the Tascos are nearly the same size and shape. Lenses are the same size. They are comfortable in the hands and settle there like they are meant to be there. They are essentially identical in weight. The lens multi-coating, unless modern coatings are invisible, seems minimal but I’m sure it is just progress and that it does its job well. However, as Nikon does not openly state “fully multi-coated” which is the best, opting to say “multi-coated” which means only that some lenses are multi-coated. The good — eye relief on the Nikons is generous so no need to remove glasses to use them. To that end, the eye cups twist down and are held securely by detents — they are better than any I’ve seen on lower cost glasses. The Tasco has virtually no eye relief and, although usable wearing glasses (due to an already wide angle of view), the Nikon is better and very nice in this regard. The eye cups are unlikely to shift in use or during carry. Likewise, the diopter is well secured and unlikely to shift in use. The glasses are rubber coated and waterproof/fogproof, which is a huge advantage over the Tasco although in 45 years of use I never experienced problems using them outside and when not in use kept them in a ziploc bag with desiccant. Optically, they are on a par with the Tasco, which is to say they are quite good. The caveat here is that while the Tascos are sharp across the entire field-of-view, the Nikons are sharp only in the centre and there is noticeable blur in some of the peripheral areas. Not a problem but does interfere with how some of us scan an area panel by panel. Narrower angle of view, but still wider than most. The not-quite-as-good — Focussing is stiff and slow due, no doubt, to the o-rings that make it waterproof. An acceptable compromise. It is precise without sloppiness. The Tasco is faster. The aforementioned lack of black-out inside the barrels is a concern. The caps for the lenses, particularly the objectives, are very poor and will be lost or lose their resilience in pretty short order. The strap is the typical cheapie but better than the narrow piece of plastic the Tasco came with. A decent camera strap will fit and should be ordered at the same time. Overall, they are good for the purpose. Porro-prisms in a 7X35 are quite compact and light while offering vastly superior viewing, including enhanced depth perception, to roof prisms in the under $500 category. For something that will be expected to go everywhere in the forest, ride in the back of a truck, and so on, these are very good and compared to many, superior. I will say that I’m certain these will become the one pair I use for nearly everything and, at my age, will be the last pair I need to buy. I recommend these for anyone who needs good optics, reasonable weight and size, and is spending money to acquire a reliable product and not to impress the rest of the world. These will do the job you need and with a little care may be the only pair you ever buy. Bear in mind, however, these are “cheap” binoculars where Nikon has cut corners to maximise profit rather than benefit the customer. Be sure to consider all options before paying extra for these.

      Literally stellar views… I use these for astronomy and they are perfect for that application. The 7x power is low enough to easily allow hand-held viewing without the stars “jumping” all over the place. The wide-field view is amazing for sweeping views of the Milky Way. And the multi-coated optics are very well corrected, sharp and high contrast all the way out to the edge of the field of view… no signs of coma. Views of the Pleiades are stunning. In theory, 7×50 glass should yield a brighter and more detailed view, and I have some very nice 7×50 binos. But in practice, I have not found this to be the case. The 7×50 glass is heavier and more difficult to hold over extended periods, and they are not any brighter than these 7x35s. Now my eyes are older, and don’t dilate as wide as they did when I was young. So maybe that’s part of it. So unless you are a teen or 20-something, stick with the 7×35 glass and you won’t be disappointed. These are a great bargain, and high quality wide-field astro-bino. And they can be tripod or mono-pod mounted if you prefer. Read more

      What do you want to know? I think the performance and features of this currently $130.00 pair of binoculars rivals that of binoculars costing $300.00 or more. The field of view is luxurious at 9.3° (or 488 feet at a distance of 1,000 yards (3,000 feet)). My pair are the 7x35mm model. For my personal use, a magnification of 7 is perfect. 6 is too little to see sufficient detail, and 8 is too much as it is hard for me to hold the image steady without a tripod. The exit pupil is nice and bright at 5mm (35mm objective lens diameter divided by magnification 7). For comparison, I have a pair of waterproof/fog proof Bushnell Trophy binoculars (8×25), and their field of view is 400 feet at 1,000 yards, fairly typical for a lot of binoculars. 88 feet is a substantial difference in terms of what you can see in the field of view horizontally and vertically without moving the binoculars. A larger field of view is supposed to be especially useful for viewing wildlife or athletes in motion. Owing to refractive surgery, my distance vision is at or very close to 20/20 in both eyes, so the adjustable eye cups have to be fully extended for me to be able to see the full field of view. I have yet to try these binoculars out on someone who wears glasses to see how well the binoculars can be adjusted to compensate for the distance between the eyeglass lenses and the eyes, but I will do so in due course and edit this review accordingly. These binoculars are supposed to be waterproof and fog proof, purged with dry nitrogen and sealed with o-rings. I probably will not be testing this aspect of them too much. They seem quite tough and durable, but I think one would have to be careful when adjusting the adjustable eye cups. Do not over torque or over twist them or they might break off. Be careful when removing the eyepiece cover from the eye cups. Twist the eye cups down (carefully) flush with the eyepieces of the binoculars before storage or while not in use, in any case before applying the eyepiece cover. This way, the eye cups are not likely to get knocked or pulled off. Aside from this apparent inconvenience, I do not think you will find many binoculars in this price range with this level of performance and this many useful features. I wonder if the adjustable eye cups on more expensive center focus binoculars are sturdier. The only other basis I have for optical comparison is a pair of Steiner Navigator II binoculars (7x50mm), but on those, the focus of each eye must be adjusted separately, and they do not have adjustable eye cups. They are also nitrogen purged and waterproof and fog proof, but their sturdiness also comes at a cost because they cannot be focused as quickly as a pair of center focus binoculars. Since they are intended for marine use, quickness of focus is not as important, but it does limit their usefulness in other activities such as bird watching. The Steiner Navigator II’s are also relatively heavy to me. In terms of weight, for me, these Nikon binoculars seem to be somewhere in the middle: not too heavy and not terribly light. You might want to hold a pair up to your face for a while to see how fatiguing it is for you as this can be an issue with wildlife and sports viewing. But in most respects, I cannot recommend these enough for those who, like me, are interested in birding and sports viewing but who do not have $300.00 to $500.00 or more to spend on a pair of binoculars. For what it is worth, I read that the US Secret Service have used and perhaps continue to use Nikon Action EX binoculars. I guess they get optimum performance at a price that will not break the American taxpayer. I hope that is honest and straightforward enough and fair to all parties concerned. Read more

      This is the second pair I have purchased. This time for my wife who wanted a durable binocular for use on our property that boarders a state forever wild sanctuary. The first pair I purchased I use for work. They are durable and take a beating. They are with me every day in all sorts of weather. The 7×35 magnification make them easy to use, easy to find my target and hold steady. Excellent low light capabilities. They have traveled with me from Alaska to Panama too. I throw them in my work bag that I leave in my car in sub-zero weather to temps as high as 103F. Read more
