If, like much of the world, you have less-than-perfect vision, you'll probably remember the first time you were given a professionally prescribed pair of eyeglasses and slipped them on to survey your new world. The breathtaking experience of seeing everything with enhanced clarity and focus has probably stuck with you. So when we tell you that you've never experienced anything like Nikon's EDG series of precision sport optics, keep that first pair of glasses in mind. While there are lots of binoculars in this world, it's doubtful you've used any as spectacularly clear and bright as the EDG series.
Every aspect of Nikon's EDG 10 x 42 binoculars testify to their pedigree and legendary build quality. From the lightweight yet rugged magnesium-alloy body, to the meticulously crafted extra-low dispersion glass lenses, to the dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coatings that preserve almost all the brightness you can perceive with your naked eye, the EDG 10 x 42 binoculars reposition your point-of-view in space. At a 10X magnification, you'll feel like you're significantly closer, yet still seeing things as you would naturally. It sounds simple, but only an optical instrument with this kind of craftsmanship can deliver an experience that feels as true and intimate as this. Innovations like Nikon's Field Flattener lens system minimize field curvature, with the end result being images that are sharp and undistorted even at the image periphery.
The body's rubber armor coating ensures that you'll maintain a secure grip in any weather, and the dual-focus knob with locking diopter adjustment will allow you to quickly adjust to changing scenes in a fluid manner. An O-ring sealed and nitrogen-filled design means fogproof and waterproof performance. In fact, EDG binoculars can withstand up to 10 minutes submerged in up to 16.4 feet of water.
