Nikon introduces the MONARCH M5 and M7 Binoculars

Sydney, Australia – 22 September 2021 – Nikon Vision Co. Ltd (Nikon Vision), a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation (Nikon), is pleased to announce the release of two new binocular series, the MONARCH M5 and M7. These are the successor models to the MONARCH 5 and MONARCH 7, which have been highly acclaimed all over the world for many years.

The MONARCH M5 and MONARCH M7 both feature extra-low dispersion (ED) glass employed to correct chromatic aberration that causes colour fringing to achieve contrast-rich and high-resolution images. For a bright view and natural colour fidelity, a multilayer coating is applied to all lenses and prisms, dielectric high-reflective multilayer coating, and phase correction coating are applied to the roof prisms.

The MONARCH M5 Series

The MONARCH M5 Series consists of three models: 8x42, 10x42 and 12x42. Their exterior has been completely redesigned from the MONARCH 5 binoculars into a clean form with straight lines. Nikon MONARCH M5 binoculars are ideal for nature-watching, birding, and many other outdoor activities.
