by Rugman1956 Well worth the money!
I have several pairs of better binoculars I use for hunting, the Nikon Monarch 7's 10x42, Zeiss Conquest 10 x 42, Vortex Razor HD 10 x 42 and a pair of Swarovsky SL 10 x 50's. The binoculars range in price from $500 for the Nikons, $1000 for the Zeiss, $1280 for the Vortex and $2400+ for the Swarovsky's.
I have compared all four side by side in bright light and at dusk on numerous occasions. The Swarovski were hands down the best but they should be at more than twice the price of any of the others. Both the Swarovsky and Vortex have substantially better clarity and low light transmission then the Zeiss or the Nikons. The Vortex don't hold a candle to the Swarovskis but they are considerably better binos then the Nikons or the Zeiss, sharper and much better light transmission than either of them.
When I compare the Nikons to the Zeiss I cannot see any noticeable difference between the two of them. Both are equally clear, equally good in low light situations and both have equally good ergonomics.
Given that the Vortex Razors and Zeiss Conquest are twice the price (or more) of the Nikon I would strongly.recommend the Nikon Monarch 7 ATB's. Focus and diopter adjustments are very good, eye cups and rubber armor are excellent and basic performance is more than commendable for binoculars in this price range.
I think that the Nikon Monarch 7 ATB's are a great choice for those looking for a good quality, moderately priced binoculars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D. Nikon is different than the competition
I just purchased the Monarch7 10x42 after four trips to the local sporting goods store to compare their huge selection of competing brands. The final comparison was at dusk, outside the store. After multiple frustrating attempts to see any significant difference between brands within the brightly lit store, I did the dusk test. Even then, it was difficult until close to darkness. However, Nikon was obviously superior in color contrast and sharp focus than the other brands. The store employee who was assisting agreed in the end, after he previously recommended another brand. He is now converted to Nikon. The others used for comparison were: Leupold McKinley, Zeiss Conquest, Vortex Razor and Viper. The superior look, feel and operation is a nice bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Poppy Excellent birding binoculars
I have several pairs of binoculars in different configurations and use them according to where I'm going and what wildlife I expect to see. The Monarch 7 10x42 is an excellent binocular for birding within a tree canopy in search of small songbirds. The wide FOV (6.7 degrees) is a distinct advantage in tracking small birds that are constantly moving. I'm aware of only one other 10x42 with a wider view, but it is more than twice the price! HD glass and dielectric prisms are features of premium grade binos, but are used in this mid level model as well. The eye relief is adequate and eye cups are comfortable after long use. Small body and close inter-pupillary distance allows for small kids to also use. Focus is smooth, 1.4 turns end to end. Bright, clear and sharp resolution. I don't see any distortion anywhere, but see some minor color fringe on white. I've purchased three of these to give as gifts because they are such a versatile binocular.
