Taking into account the margin of error, the result of the Monarch HG 10x42 is practically the same as the result of its predecessor, the HG 10x42 DCF. On the one hand it might seem pointless to buy a new model when the old one is equally good; on the other hand several other factors should be...

  • +

    very stylish, solid and waterproof casing,, record-breaking field of view, very wide for the 10x42 class,, good transmission,, very good colour fidelity,, low astigmatism,, slight coma,, negligible distortion,, practically imperceptible brightness loss on the edge of the field of view,, good quality...

  • -

    a bit too high chromatic aberration on the very edge of the field of view,, truncated exit pupils.

First of all, I apologize for having 3 reviews on this product. I assure you I am not trying to troll Cabelas, nor do I have any special interest with Nikon. So after having problems with the diopter adjustment on 2 previous models, why did I purchase a third ?

Outstandingly good! Bizarrely these HG binoculars are lighter than the HG-L version (the 'L' standing for lightweight!).

Have you ever reviewed a product you were excited about initially and then had a problem with it? Well, that's exactly what I just did with the Nikon Monarch HG 10x42 and will have to eat some crow.

These are very well made binoculars. Most of my comparison is with the Monarch 5 ED 10x42 which I also own. (I also have a pair of Kowa BD XD 10x32 and Steiner wildlife xp 10x26) Optically the Nikon HGs are outstanding. No discernable chromatic aberration in most of field.
