Be a good sport - Nikon have announced the release of their new Sporter EX series of binoculars.
Nikon UK are pleased to announce their new binocular series, Sporter EX, for all-round use. Fully waterproof and fog-proof, Nikon Sporter EX Binoculars (8x42 and 10x50) offer great value in a lightweight and user-friendly package.
Multicoated, specially engineered lenses and high-eyepoint design ensure a sharp and comfortable view, whilst fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin dramatically reduces the weight of the body, making them perfect for use in any terrain.

- Multilayer coated lenses
- Turn-and-slide rubber eyecup with multi-click
