    Since it looks like Amazon is consolidating several of the Nikon Binocular reviews into one, this review is for the Nikon Action Extreme (#7245) 10×50 Binoculars. I wish Amazon didn’t do this since the specs are much different between the “Action” and “Action Extreme” models. …Anyway, the Action Extremes are very good binoculars. They are not the best you can buy, but you can buy much worse. Actually, there is only one thing that keeps me from giving the 7245’s a 5 Star Rating. The optical coatings could be better. The binoculars suffer from some internal reflections when used under difficult lighting situations, such as viewing a bright object like a full moon. The optical coatings are better than your average binoculars, but not as good as some other models. Most of the better ones will cost much more though. During normal circumstances though, the 7245’s shine. They have excellent edge to edge sharpness and clarity. I have no problem seeing very fine detail at far distances. All in all, I give them 4.5 stars.

    Pros:
    Moderately priced.
    Waterproof and fogproof.
    Rugged construction.
    Excellent performance under most conditions.
    Long eye relief (17.2mm).
    Good accessories.
    25 year limited no fault warranty.

    Cons:
    Optical coatings could be better.
    Slightly heavy.

    I took the plunge on 10×50’s after reading a compelling article on the Cornell Ornithology website.

    These Nikon Action EX 10×50 binocs are unusually well-crafted for a “low end” product. Their optics are sharp and bright, even at dawn or dusk. Their eye fatigue index approaches 18. Their ergonomics and controls are rugged and smooth. Most of all, the wiggle you’d expect from 10-power binocs are rarely a problem here because the frame is lighter than most products in this price-range. Indeed, without a harness or monopod, you can watch a Bald Eagle fish the surface of a river for a quarter-mile and not miss any of the action.

    While I use these primarily to view raptors at distances of 500+ feet, they focus very clearly at 27.5 feet, too. Whatever the distance, the view is bright, the colors generally vivid and the detail superb.

    That is not to say that Leica wouldn’t produce a superior product; but at a fraction of the price, nearly 50% off retail, they are wonderful. Keep a pair of 8×42 binoculars on-hand, especially if songbirds are your passion; but if you expect to do some long-distance viewing, these Nikons are a sensible buy.
