The all-new Nikon Monarch 5 ED binoculars take our most popular binocular to new heights of quality, and style.

The Nikon Monarch 5 ED binoculars are now built with Nikon’s legendary ED (Extra-low dispersion) glass lenses, which correct chromatic aberrations across the furthest limits of the visible light range and effectively compensate for color fringing. Even when observing objects that would make chromatic aberration the most apparent, such as adjacent whites and blacks; the images will maintain superior contrast and resolution thanks to the ED glass lenses. The improved resolution also provides brighter, more natural looking images, making the Monarch 5 ED's a serious contender to be your “go-to” binocular for years to come.

Multilayer coatings provide an even higher light transmittance across the entire visible light spectrum, are applied to all of the lens and prism surfaces that transmit light. This minimizes the loss of light due to reflection, thereby ensuring a more natural, clearer view.

The Nikon Monarch 5 ED binoculars are ideal for birdwatching and other nature activities, for use on a boat, sightseeing, astronomy, etc.
