Nikon Monarch M5 8x42 Binoculars

Bright images and rugged construction

These binoculars use premium optical elements with ED (extra-low dispersion) glass. Advanced reflective coatings help them deliver brilliant light transmittance and beautiful natural color fidelity. And the textured rubber armor on the body keeps your grip secure — wet or dry — and lends extra shock-resistance to the binoculars.


Overview: The Nikon Monarch M5 8×42 is a bright binocular with a 42mm objective lens that gathers abundant light for bright, clear images. The M5 binocular features renowned Nikon optics, and a tough rubber-armored body for a non-slip grip and protection from bumps. The binocular comes with a neck strap, eyepiece cap, flip-down objective lens caps, and a soft storage case.

Optics: The Monarch M5 binocular delivers excellent optical performance due to its ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and multi-layer coatings on the lenses and prisms. The eyepiece and objective lenses are protected by scratch-resistant coatings, and the interior lenses are protected from fogging, even a high altitudes. The roof prisms on the Monarch M5 binoculars have a phase-corrected coating applied to the prism surfaces for higher resolution.

Waterproof: The Monarch M5 is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to prevent fogging, and to protect the internal optics from condensation and mold. The binoculars should suffer no damage to the optical system if submerged or dropped in water to a maximum depth of 1 meter (3.3 feet) for up to 10 minutes. The Monarch M5 can be used in areas of high humidity or rain without worry.

Focusing Ring: The Monarch M5 has a Dach prism central focusing system with a focusing ring that makes it easy to bring your subject into focus.

Diopter Ring: The right eyepiece has a diopter ring for adjusting the binoculars to your eyesight. You can rotate the ring clockwise or counterclockwise to bring the object into focus. A diopter index indicates the “0” position, as well as “+” and “-” positions.

Eyecups: The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to position your eyes at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort during extended use. When wearing eyeglasses, you should leave the eyepiece fully retracted. The Monarch M5s offer a long, 19.5mm eye relief, allowing you to get a full field-of-view through the binoculars.
