Nikon has announced the Nikon Monarch HG 8x30 and 10x30 binoculars. The binoculars use extra-low dispersion (ED) glass to correct for chromatic aberration, and provide a high quality image. There's a scratch resistant coating, dioptre adjustment, magnesium alloy body, as well as a waterproof and fog-proof design. The Nikon Monarch HG 8x30 has an RRP of £899, with the 10x30 available for £949.

From Nikon: London, United Kingdom 28th June 2018: Nikon today announces the introduction of the lightweight and compact 30mm-diameter models (8×30 and 10×30) to the MONARCH HG series - the most advanced series in the history of MONARCH binoculars.

The 30mm-diameter model is both compact and lightweight, with its magnesium alloy body weighing just approx. 450 g. It provides a sharp and clear view all the way to the periphery and maintains a wide field of view with natural colour fidelity - both features of the MONARCH HG 42mm-diameter model, but in a smaller body.

As with other models in the MONARCH HG series, these new binoculars feature the same sleek design and deliver the same fine performance. The binoculars’ wide apparent field of view (60.3° for the 8×30 and 62.2° for the 10×30) provides spectacular viewing, while the Field Flattener Lens System assures a sharp and clear view all the way to the lens periphery. The use of extra-low dispersion (ED) glass corrects chromatic aberration that can cause colour fringing to achieve a contrast-rich and high-resolution image.

A high-quality multilayer coating is applied to all lenses and prisms. Dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating and phase correction coating are applied to the roof prisms, which combine to achieve a bright view with light transmittance of up to 92 per cent or higher, plus natural colour fidelity.

The compact magnesium alloy body offers waterproof/fog-proof performance (up to 5 m for 10 min.). The high performance prevents fogging inside the optical system even in low-pressure environments up to altitudes of 5,000 m.

This new model comes with a neck strap that reduces strain on the user’s neck, and a semi-hard type case to protect the binoculars in transit. Nikon MONARCH HG 30mm-diameter binoculars are ideal for bird or nature-watching enthusiasts, as well as those who enjoy different kinds of outdoor activities and want to travel light.
