    Cons: The only real demerit to the Nikon 8x30 was mentioned in the allbinos review: the FOV is only 6.5 degrees. But your humble reviewer wears glasses so can\'t see the periphery properly anyways.

    Pros: Caveat: have old tired eyes and wear glasses so whizzy-wuwu optics are of less concern than functionality and weight. The Nikon Prostaff 8x30 are perfect so even bought a second pair as a backup. They weigh only 15 ounces and hang perfectly....you hardly know they are there. The brand Z $800 8x32 weighs 22 ounces! Ridiculous...you might as well buy a 20 ounce Nikon 8x42 and get a nice large exit pupil and extra brightness for $100. The hinge, focus, and diopter of the Nikon 8x30 are tight enough to hold their settings and not need constant diddling.....more time looking and less time fiddling with the knobs. Lastly, the styling is sedate and understated. Lots of binos have a disagreeable toys-r-us look.

    Summary: The Nikon Prostaff 8x30 binoculars at $115 were a bargain. I took a target to the store in Seattle and tested out every brand they had for resolution. If you wear glasses and your eyesight has degenerated, why pay $500 to $1000 for overweight hyped glass that has to be babied everywhere you go? Considered the Nikon Monarch 8x30 but the optics were no better to these tired eyes and the price tag $350.
