If you are looking for superb binoculars with crisp, clear viewing and easy to focus, This pair is for you. It is comfortable to use by someone with or without eyeglasses.
It is worthy of the brand name NIKON. There are a lot of 8X40 binoculars out there. One can try to save money on a cheaper pair but will it be as good ? Most will not. This is an excellent example of "You get what you pay for..."
The only possible downside for some people is that it is not a compact pair. It is full size. But to me, a quality full size pair of binoculars can seldom be equaled in performance by a compact pair.

Good product for general, low intensity

I bought the binoculars for novice-level birdwatching. The magnification level was not as goo as I had hoped. My hope is to trade up to a better model.

              Customer Q & A

              13 Questions About This Product
              Q: "I need a binocular that I can use with my glasses?"
              A: The measurement that you will have to take into consideration when using a binocular without taking off your glasses is called Eye Relief. If it is 15mm or greater than you do not need to remove your glasses when using the binocular.
              Q: "I am looking for a pair of binoculars that would be used for hiking and short excursions?"
              A: I would recommend getting the Nikon Action Extreme 8x40 as it is a fully waterproof, fogproof, shockproof binocular.
              Q: "Is there an accommodation for affixing these to a tripod? If not, please provide manufacturer name, model number, etc. for binoculars so equipped. Use would be indoors - a sun room overlooking a long, long lake?"
              A: Yes, there is actually a tripod adapter available for this binocular that is sold separately.
              Q: "What type and power would be recommended for sporting and concert events for up close viewing?"
              A: An 8x40 or 8x42mm binocular is a good, general-purpose viewing instrument that will work well for the uses you describe. The 8X magnification is not so great that it's difficult to hold images steady. And a 40 or 42mm aperture is large enough to give good image brightness and a wide field of view. If you're going to be outdoors, you might like to choose binoculars that are rubber-armored and waterproof, as well as fog-proof.
              Q: "What is the weight of the 8 x 40 Action Ultra-Wide-View compared with the 7 x 35 Action Ultra-Wide?"
              A: The 8x40 weigh in at 26.3 ounces, while the 7x35 tip the scales at 25.2 ounces.
              Q: "What is the eye relief of the Nikon 8x40?"
              A: Eye relief is 11.9mm.
              Q: "Which pair of binoculars would you recommend for watching sporting events, specifically football?"
              A: Nikon Action 8x40 Ultra Wide View binoculars are great for watching football.
              Q: "Recently I bought the 8x40 Nikon Binoculars. Is this enough/good for astronomical view of stars/moon?"
              A: Nikon 8x40mm binoculars are not especially recommended for astronomical viewing. You will probably find that you would like more magnification and a larger aperture than the 8x40 provides.
              Q: "What is the difference between the Roof prism and the Porro?"
              A: Roof prism binoculars are the "straight-through" style with two round "barrels." Porro prism binoculars have their eyecups offset from the objective lenses, forming a "dogleg." The best binoculars in the world today are roof prism models.
              Q: "For astronomy which is best, 8X40 or 7X50 Nikon Action?"
              A: Between the 8x40 and 7x50 I would recommend the 7x50 for astronomical use. For looking at the night sky - you want to gather as much light as possible. A 50 mm objective lens will gather more light than the 40 mm will - and therefore you will be able to see more stars because of this. The 1x difference in magnification really isn't enough to worry about making any sort of real difference between the two. The craters on the moon should look spectacular with either one.
              Q: "Do the Nikon 8x40 Action Ultra-Wide come with a neck strap?"
              A: Yes, all Nikon binoculars come directly from Nikon with a carrying case, neck strap, and U.S warranty card. I believe that these also come with eyepiece and objective covers as well.
              Q: "What binoculars are best for viewing sailing regattas from land?"
              A: Nikon 8x40 Action Ultra-Wide-View binoculars are a very good general viewing binocular with a nice, wide field of view. This should allow you to get a good view of the action on the water. However, you might possibly want a little more magnification if you're interested in seeing any of the boats close up. If that's the case, you'll like the Nikon 10x50 binoculars. These still give a reasonable wide field of view, and they offer an additional 2X magnification.
              Q: "What will you recommend between Nikon 7x35 Action Ultra-Wide-View and Nikon 8x40 Action Ultra-Wide-View? I will be using it for sports, sightseeings, etc?"
              A: Many folks -- birders especially -- consider an 8x40 or 8x42 to be the perfect binocular. It gives you enough magnification to bring distant objects close, yet not so much that image shake becomes unmanageable. We'd agree with them: the 8x40 is a winner.
