    Cons: the initial price a bit high

    Pros: Very sharp on axis Good edge clarity up to 80% Very contrasting image. One of the most contrasting binoculars Very good light transmission Very large field of view 8.3 deg. Natural and crisp colors Good 16.2mm Eye relief for spectacle wearers, very easy to see through it. Robust and compact construction. The smallest 8x30 and the most beautiful

    Summary: The HG 8x30 optics are side by side with the more expensive Leica Ultravid 8x32 or with Swarovski new CL 8x30

    Cons: The focus wheel is touch tight on my sample, though very smooth. Doesn\'t bother me. There is a bit of chromatic aberration outside of the center, and at times a touch of glare.

    Pros: Great contrast, great sharpness, huge FOV, lovely colors, very light weight, excellent ergonomics.

    Summary: A really lovely little bin, extremely compact with very high quality. Its only competitor is the Swaro CL-B which gives a bit more neutral and cleaner view but with a restricted FOV and with an inferior short focus distance. I like both but prefer the Nikon.

    Cons: My major gripe is that the binocular case has no belt loop to enable you to thread a belt thru it. The convenience of this compact bino is to hike with it attached at the belt.

    Pros: The optics are a little sharper than the Monarch 7 and they handle stray light better. The bino is built better that the 7 and the eyecups adjustments are cleaner and more precise in their movement.

    Summary: My Monarch 7 8x30 was my favorite bino until I tried the new HG which I do like better though 2x the price.
