The Nikon Prostaff 7 binocular rivals Nikon Monarch 8×42 ATB in terms of clarity. When eye cups are brought near to a user’s eyes, one is immediately met with a clear, crisp image of an object ranging from 13 feet away to half a mile.

While using this binocular, you can clearly view objects which are located a half mile away. The Binocular also has a wide field of view that allows users to view large area without necessarily having to adjust or even move the binoculars.


With a magnification power of 10x, this binocular offers excellent vision. What makes Nikon Prostaff 7 10×42 stand out when compared to the other 10x binoculars is its limited amount of shakiness which is displayed while viewing moving images. Typically, most 10x binoculars will amplify hand movement while viewing these images but this binocular is surprisingly stable.

Ease of Adjustment
