New these generally run in about the $130-150 range.

They have a roof prism light path, coated anti-reflective lenses and are sealed to be waterproof.
8x42 is a very popular setup for birding (my intended use), and should be good for hunting, etc.

Deal expires on 6/25 at 11:59pm EDT.

If they are just mainly going to sit in the bag, I would recommend a small mini-pair of binoculars. If you are actually going to bird watch or something, then these would be good. 7-8X is the perfect magnification for watching birds. At 10X you lose a lot of ability to track objects since the field of view gets smaller with higher magnification. At above about 15X it is almost impossible to use without a stabilizing pod of some kind, because you naturally just shake too much. The 42mm objective on these is well-sized to 8X magnification and will do well in low-light. I like 50mm objectives even better, but they are heavier. If you will use them, this is very good. Higher priced models will often have better ground lenses or superior coatings to capture more light with a smaller or equal sized objective.

Otherwise if you need something super small they have minis like these for cheap: https://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-P...th=1&psc=1

Looking to buy my first set of binoculars. Would these be a good set? I'd imagine I'd toss them in my bag when I go backpacking or for a day hike.

I grabbed a one to replace an older similar Nikons that were stolen out of my work truck. I am a land surveyor and use these in my work. They were the best binos I have had and replaced a much more expensive Leopold that did nothing but fog up and eventually succumbed to everyday hard use.

Nikon makes very good quality binocs, but sadly stopped production as in done. Price is right. If you run across some 1960's Bushnell's, made in Japan, grab them as the glass is outstanding and they are generally inexpensive.

Edit: CORRECTION: Mistake made as Nikon stopped mfg rifle scopes and NOT binoculars. Sorry for the wrong info.

So I went with the bushnell mainly because they have ED glass which greatly reduces color aberration ( at least in telescopes) ;sure it does the same with binoculars, but to what extent I do not know.

I tried the Nikon Prostaff 5 8x42 at Hunt's Photo & Video and seemed pretty good. Picked them for around $150. First time I purchased a binocular and at the park I enjoy looking at the river and seeing people on boats and ducks and birds.

They are built very strong. A good choice for beginners.

Stopped production on all Nikon Bins or just this model?

Oh my mistake..Nikon stopped making rifle scopes! My apologies and can blame it on the Vicodin express train I'm on after some dental work. Scheech. Sorry folks.
