Press Release: Nikon logo
Nikon UK have announced five binoculars from the all-new EDG series (pronounced edge) extending its range of high performance binoculars which currently includes the HGL series. With two models from the EDGx32 series, and three from the EDGx42 series, these are the first binoculars ever to use Nikon’s legendary, performance-proven ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass – cutting edge technology that offers significant advantages.

ED glass came to the forefront of optical technology when it was first used in Nikkor lenses, making them the most sought after optics in photography. By eliminating the chromatic aberration that occurs when varying wavelengths of light pass through optical glass, the Nikon EDG binoculars can offer unparalleled performance; delivering high contrast, high resolution images.

Nikon’s EDG optical system also incorporates phase-correction coated roof prisms to enhance resolution, as well as dielectric coated sub-prisms to maximise light transmission. Together with fully multicoated lenses and the specially engineered ED glass, the high-grade prisms deliver bright, clear and vivid images right across the viewing field.

The Nikon EDG binoculars were specifically designed for ergonomic functionality, durability and precise balance in the hand. The magnesium alloy body is sculpted into an open bridge quadrangle, offering a tough, lightweight design that will mean you can take these binoculars anywhere.

Specially engineered thumb-indexing contours on the underside of the 42mm body ensures comfortable hand positioning, whilst its waterproof and fog-proof qualities, with O-ring sealing and dry nitrogen-filling, means it can handle the toughest conditions.

To further enhance viewing quality, the EDG binoculars also have a convenient dual-phase central focusing mechanism that provides both precise focusing and diopter adjustments.  This single, discreetly integrated multifunction control locks the focus when diopter correction is necessary for unparalleled speed and convenience.

With the 42mm EDG series, Nikon is introducing a 7x, 8x and 10x model, whilst the 32mm series will be available in 8x and 10x model.  In all models the Nikon EDG features twist-out, click-stop eyepieces for an optimum view with or without eyewear.

As some users prefer ergonomically contoured horn-shaped eyecups to block out peripheral light, Nikon has included easily detachable cups with each EDG binocular model to accommodate all user preferences.
