Comments about Nikon Nikon Action EX 8x40 Extreme Binocular:
I come from a family of bird watchers and although I haven't used my new binocs very much yet, I'm very pleased with them. The clarity of the lenses are far more superior to the others that I have tried and I'm especially excited that I no longer have to worry about capsizing in the canoe since they're waterproof! I would however have prefered to have a hard case and a strap on the case, not just the binoc strap.
