Stunning binoculars from Nikon

Nikon Sporter EX 10x50
Advantages: Waterproof - Fog proof - Equisite zoom with amazing quality - Easy to hold
Disadvantages: Quality of zoom underwater isn't perfect - Expensive
The Nikon Sporter EX 10x50 is without a doubt the best binoculars I have ever used. I myself use them for bird watching, however they are also suitable for hunting, marine and other nature scenarios. These are simply amazing... they are very easy to use and are easy to hold. I often go bird watching for extended periods and these are just perfect - weighing in at less than 1kg after a while you really get used to holding them. The fact that they're fog proof and water proof also means I needn't rely on the weather to enjoy my hobby.
The price tag (£160+) is, you might think quite high. But actually, for binoculars of this spec that isn't bad. The quality at full zoom is magnificent and I can't imagine bird watching without them again. They were bought for me as a present (bunch of friends chipped in) and I'm truly glad I have them. It came with a carrying case which is very useful. One of my friends borrowed the binoculars a while back for underwater purposes and he said they held up very well and the zoom was incredible, though lost some quality underwater.
Personally, I love these binoculars and I think if you ignored the price tag and bought them you'd definitely see what I mean. You simply can't turn back once you've used these and they've become an essential part of my hobby. If, like me you are passionate about bird watching or nature viewing... you owe it to yourself to try these.
Summary: These binoculars are a real must have if you enjoy hunting/bird watching or simply enjoying nature
