Overview: The Nikon Premier 8 x 42 waterproof binocular
provides superb optical performance in the field under virtually any conditions.
The sturdy, die-cast magnesium body makes it lightweight without sacrificing
durability. It features high-quality optics and prisms to give you bright, clear
images. The Premier 8 x 42 comes with a neck strap and a soft, leather storage
Waterproof: The Premier 8 x 42 is
nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to prevent fogging, and to protect the
internal optics from condensation and mold. The binoculars should suffer no
damage to the optical system if submerged or dropped in water to a maximum depth
of 1 meter for up to 10 minutes. The Premier can be used in areas of high
humidity or rain without worry.
Multi-coated Optics: The Premier binoculars feature lead-
and arsenic-free Eco-Glass lenses, with proprietary lens and prism coatings. The lenses feature multiple
layers of anti-reflective compounds for excellent brightness and resolution. The
eyepieces have aspherical lenses to give you a flat field of view without
aberration. The Premier delivers high-contrast images with accurate color
reproduction, due to the high reflection silver prism coatings.
Focus Knob: The Premier has a smooth, central quick focus knob for
bringing your subject into focus.
Locking Diopter Ring: The right eyepiece has a diopter ring for
adjusting the binoculars to your eyesight. A diopter index indicates the "0"
position, as well as eight "+" and "-" positions. The
diopter ring lifts up for adjustment, and returns to its original locked
Turn-and-Slide Rubber Eyecups: The multi-setting, click-stop rubber eyecups make it easy to
position your eyes at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort during
extended use. The Premiers offer a long, 20mm eye relief, allowing you to
get a full field-of-view through the binoculars, even while wearing eyeglasses.
Rubber Coating: The body of the
Premier has a durable
rubber-armored coating to give you a non-slip grip, and to protect the
binoculars in virtually any weather.
