The 8x32 EDG Binocular from Nikon is a
premium set of glasses that features a high-transmission optical path
and a weather-sealed magnesium-alloy housing. A wide 57.2° apparent
viewing angle and 8 ft minimum focus distance make the 8x32
configuration of the EDG binocular ready for almost any close to
mid-range viewing task.
EDG series optics use extra-low dispersion
(ED) glass elements, as well as dielectric and phase-correction coated
prisms to transmit a bright image that is color faithful and rich with
detail. Nikon's Eco-Glass optics are made of responsibly-sourced lenses
and prisms that contain no lead or arsenic. Additionally, the field
flattener lens system corrects almost all field curvature and improves
clarity along the edge of the field of view.
adjustments for each eyepiece, a 18.5mm eye relief and Turn-and-Slide
eyecups with multiple click-stop positions help the EDG series optics
provide a comfortable viewing distance for almost any viewer—even
eyeglass wearers. Detachable angled rubber eyecups included with this
binocular can improve the viewing experience by shielding the viewer's
eyes from ambient light.
The magnesium-alloy housing is
nitrogen-filled for fogproof performance and wrapped in a slip-resistant
rubber armoring that makes this binocular easy to handle even when
conditions turn wet or cold. A sculpted body with ergonomically located
gripping surfaces, in addition to a fast focus adjustment wheel, equips
this binocular for user-friendly handling.
