Nikon Expands Award-Winning MONARCH HG Binocular Line


Nikon Expands Award-Winning MONARCH HG Binocular Line

Melville NY (June 28, 2018) – ( – With a century of optics-building technology at its back, Nikon announces its most advanced, highly engineered MONARCH binocular is now available in a compact form. The new MONARCH HG 30mm series follows in the footsteps of its award-winning* 42mm siblings and provides nearly identical performance specifications in a smaller size and nearly 8-ounce reduction in weight.

For The Best Images, You Need the Best Glass

Extraordinary optical performance is key to the new MONARCH HG 30mm binocular. The optical system of the MONARCH HG is engineered around its ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass with high-quality multilayer coating applied to all lenses and prisms. Dielectric high-reflective multilayer coating is applied to the binoculars’ roof prisms, achieving a bright view of up to 92% or higher light transmittance, and natural color fidelity. To assure long-term optical acuity, scratch-resistant coatings protect the MONARCH HG objective and eyepiece lenses.

Field Flattener Lens System Keeps Everything Sharp and Clear

Nikon’s Field Flattener Lens System works in conjunction with MONARCH HG 30mm’s extraordinarily wide field of view—8.3° and 6.9° respectively in the 8×30 and 10×30 models—to provide a sharp, clear view to the lens periphery. This specification matches the FOV of the 42mm models of the same magnification.

Compact & Lightweight for Increased Agility

The new 8×30 and 10×30 MONARCH HG are built with a body made from magnesium alloy, providing optimum strength, impact resiliency and weight reduction. Tipping the scales at just under 16 ounces each, the binoculars’ slim body profile is further enhanced with rubberized panels to provide a sure grip in any conditions. A high quality neoprene neck strap provides increased comfort and further reduces neck strain during long days in the field.

Built To Perform In The Toughest Conditions

Nikon shields MONARCH HG’s interior lenses from fogging with an extreme waterproof rating that assures fogproof integrity even at altitudes equivalent to 16,000 feet. For total versatility, the MONARCH HG 30mm binoculars include both integral flip-down rubber objective lens covers and rubber objective trim rings that can be interchanged at the user’s discretion.

No Fault Lifetime Repair/Replacement

MONARCH HG binoculars are not only built for all-terrain ruggedness and all-conditions integrity, Nikon’s No-Fault Repair/Replacement Policy also protects them for life. The 8×30 and 10×30 models include a semi-hard case to protect binocular during travel or storage.
