Taking its place at the top as one of their flagship series, the Nikon 10x42 EDG Binocular is outfitted with complementary optical technologies that work together to offer the performance required by tactical professionals and discerning hunters, birders, and outdoor enthusiasts.

Every part of the light path gets special attention to improve the view. This starts at the objective lenses through the use of anti-reflection fully multi-coated extra low-dispersion (ED) glass; moves to the prism system, which is phase-corrected and dielectric-coated; and finally comes to the eyepieces, which employ a field-flattener lens system. Together these systems maximize light transmission, eliminate internal interference, and correct spherical and chromatic aberrations to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity across the distortion-free field of view. The powerful magnification makes this EDG binocular ideal for long-range use by allowing for detailed observation of distant subjects, and the 42mm objectives boost light-gathering ability without the bulk and weight of larger models.

Built for comfort and durability, the body design is ergonomically shaped to fit well in the hand for a balanced feel. The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable magnesium alloy that is wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armor. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to almost 20 feet, and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperatures or weather conditions. Nikon includes a set of removable angled eyecups that mold to the side of the user's eye socket. These keep stray peripheral light from interfering with the view and eliminate distractions during viewing. To help alleviate the hand shake and arm fatigue that are common when holding high-power optics such as this, Nikon made this model of the EDG tripod mountable with an optional adapter.
