Nikon's Monarch ATB 42mm binos ($280-$350) now have the Dielectric High-Reflective Multilayer Prism Coating formerly found only on the company's high-end optics. This coating makes objects brighter, crisper, and more detailed in low light. A new body style provides unparalleled strength and ruggedness in an optic that is comfortable to carry all day.
The Monarch ATB is available in 8x42, 10x42, and 12x42 configurations in a traditional black finish or Realtree APG camo. In my opinion, the new Monarch is the best glass available at a price that doesn't require a second mortgage.
