The body of this is unit is also unique, in the sense that it is extremely lightweight but still durable enough to be trusted on even the most extreme adventure. The durability of this device is achieved thanks to the use of a fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin as the primary material for the body. The model is also waterproof and fogproof.

What’s more, the Nikon unit will allow for a very comfortable viewing experience due in part to the high-eyepoint design. The turn-and-slide multi-click rubber eyecups will enable the users to adjust the eye-relief easily for a personalized fit.

As is expected with Nikon products, this option too puts a lot of emphasis on the optics quality so that the user can enjoy a great viewing experience without the need for a big budget. The use of multilayer-coated lenses will provide higher light transmittance across the entire visible light spectrum.


The coating will minimize the loss of light that can occur due to reflection, giving you a more natural and clearer view. The large 50mm objective lenses will enhance your viewing capability in low-light conditions. You will be able to use this option at both dawn and dusk with minimal image quality degradation.

If you are in the market for a portable device, but you also don’t want to sacrifice on durability, the Nikon 7573 PROSTAFF 5 sees the use of a fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin as the primary material for the body.

The material is a true marvel of engineering and will allow you to enjoy the benefits of lightweight and portable binoculars without having to worry that your new purchase won’t be able to handle the harsh conditions you may encounter in your adventures.

Comfort is an essential factor for Nikon, and this model seeks to satisfy the needs of as many types of people as possible. The device is fitted with a high-eyepoint design which will provide a clear field of view for everyone, even if the user is wearing eyeglasses. The design will ensure that there is always enough space between the user’s eye and the eyepiece lens.

You may also customize the eye-relief with the help of the turn-and-slide multi-click eyecups until you get a full field of view and the maximum comfort you require during extended periods of use.


Known issues

Some buyers are a bit unhappy with the fact that this model is not tripod-adaptable. This means that you will get unsteady images at the full 12x magnification unless you have very stable hands and the weather is calm.
