Overview: The Nikon Premier LX 8 x 20 HG L DCF is a compact
waterproof binocular with superb optical performance in the field under
virtually any conditions. It features high-quality optics and prisms to give you
bright, clear images. When storing, you can fold both eyepiece tubes inward to
an easy-to-carry 2-5/8" width and slip it into the soft, leather case.
Waterproof: The Premier LX 8 x 20 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 3 meters for up to 5 minutes. The Premier LX can be used in areas of high
humidity or rain without worry.
Multi-coated Optics: The Premier LX binoculars feature
Nikon's most advanced 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 LX delivers extra-high resolution images, due to the
Phase correction coated prisms.
Focus Knob: The Premier LX has a smooth, central quick focus knob for
bringing your subject into focus.
Diopter Control: The binocular has a rotary diopter control
positioned at the center of the main body on the eyepiece side for
adjusting the binoculars to your eyesight. A diopter index indicates the "0"
position, as well as eight "+" and "-" positions.
Turn-and-Slide Rubber Eyecups: The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to
position your eyes at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort during
extended use. The Premier LXs offer a long, 15mm 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 LX has a durable
rubber-armored coating to give you a non-slip grip, and to protect the
binoculars in virtually any weather.
