Nikon binoculars - product range, tips for buying and special features


Whether in the theatre to get a better view of the actors and performers on stage, for ship observation on holiday at the beach or on a hike for a closer look at the surroundings: binoculars are versatile and in demand among beginners and advanced users as well as professionals. Nikon is a well-known manufacturer of binoculars whose products are characterised by high optical quality and enormous versatility. Nikon pays great attention to environmental friendliness in the production of its binoculars. Accordingly, no toxic or irritating materials such as arsenic, lead or chlorine are used.

At the moment, Nikon has more than ten different series in its range, each of which comprises about five specimens. The individual series and models differ not only in their magnification factor, but also in many other characteristics. Therefore, there is a suitable Nikon binocular for every field of application. The "High Grade Light" series is especially suitable for people who want to use binoculars in the forest or at dusk, because the specially coated prisms make it possible to image the surroundings very brightly. For mountaineering, hiking and trekking, the products from the "Sporter EX" series are ideal, as they are extremely stable and robustly made.

Even in view of the extensive selection, however, it is difficult for laypeople to find a suitable model. If you have problems choosing, it is best to continue reading in the lower section of our online shop. There we go into more detail about the current range of Nikon binoculars, explain the most important advantages and disadvantages and tell you what you should look out for when buying.

About the Nikon company

The Nikon company was founded in 1917 - at that time still under the company name Nippon Kogaku K.K., under which it produced optical war equipment together with Germany. Germany was also involved in the development of telescopes together with Nippon Kogaku K.K. at that time. It was not until 1946 that the company officially adopted the name Nikon. Soon it finally began to produce binoculars. These decades of experience benefited Nikon, because today the company is considered one of the world market leaders in this field. Many people first think of digital compact, mirror and system cameras when they hear the name Nikon. Likewise, the lenses of this manufacturer are world-famous. Few consumers know that Nikon also offers microscopes, prescription glasses and spectacle lenses in some countries. In the field of binoculars, Nikon is broadly positioned and has suitable models in its range for beginners as well as for professionals and amateurs.

Product series and magnifications offered

The variety of binoculars that Nikon has on offer, it sells in different series. Under the designations "LX SE" and "E2" you will find two premium series that are located in the upper price segment. Accordingly, they are aimed specifically at professional users such as hunters, the police or the military. In addition, the following product series are offered:

In total, the range comprises over 20 different categories. Compared to other binocular manufacturers, the range is therefore extremely extensive. You will find a special pair of binoculars for every field of application, whether you are a sportsman, a hobby astronomer or a hunter. There is just as much choice in the magnification as there is in the individual products. The factors start at 7X and end at 18X. Some models are equipped with a zoom and can reach magnifications of up to 22X.

What to look for when buying Nikon binoculars

If you are thinking about buying Nikon binoculars, but are still unsure about which model is best for you because of the large selection, you should first think about the area of use for which you want to use the binoculars. Then it will be easier for you to decide which features and functions you absolutely need. Nikon, for example, offers binoculars with the following special features:

  • Integrated compass, which is aligned worldwide and has an illumination as well as a bearing mark
  • With image stabiliser, which prevents shaking and thus offers a better image
  • Waterproof - depending on the model, up to ten minutes and up to one metre depth, because the binoculars won't fog up thanks to nitrogen filling and an O-ring seal
  • With adjustable eyecup for comfortable positioning on your eye
  • With central focusing ring that allows quick and easy operation
  • With zoom so you can select different magnifications depending on the current condition
  • Rubber armour, to increase shock resistance and provide a firm grip
  • Large eye relief for improved field of view - perfect for spectacle wearers
  • Dielectric and highly reflective mirror coating for very good image brightness and ideal colour fidelity
  • Exceptionally high resolution due to phase-corrected coating
  • Multi-coated lenses, producing a very clear and bright image
  • Foldable for easy stowage in your luggage - perfect for travelling and hiking

Also, take a closer look at the accessories. For example, some models come with a swim carry strap or a handy carry bag, so you can save money on additional extras. Ideally, you should read a few experience and test reports before buying. Other consumers are often a valuable help in deciding whether a pair of binoculars is really suitable for you and your desired purpose, or whether you would be better off with another model.
