"New Nikon USA website"


Rancho Cordova, US
          

So I'm looking for a set of binoculars and I'm thinking lets go with Nikon not necessarily because of blind brand loyalty but because they are a very good optical company. Anyways, I went to the website and it appears to me as fi they have finally updated the website. I don't know why, but I never really liked the old one.

Anyways, take a look: www.nikonusa.com

By the way, I'm looking for a pair of binoculars for astronomy. I know I want a 7x50 or a 10x50 with a long eye relief (I wear glasses). Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

I also found out that Nikon has a Binocular No Fault Policy , too bad there isn't a Photography No Fault Policy.

Yes, they have been keeping themselves busy revamping the Nikon USA site for some time now. However, I just don't like the gray (rat) colored background.
It woud seem that the guys doing it are no photographers.
At least in some instances; for example, if you want to see the technical specs on a lens, they give you it's weight and overall dimensions.
On the binoculars:
Look into the Sports Section (or Birding) for the Action V 10x50 Lookout IV
also, into the Active Lifestyles (or Hunting) for the Tundra ATB 10x50
Probably one of the best is the Superior E 12x50 (Birding)
I had a great Astronomy Astroluxe 10x70 that got "lost" and I will need to replace for my wife.
Another model, a very compact 10X50 (which I don't see in the new lineup), I enjoyed for quite a long time for any type of activity, but then some friends of my daughter borrowed them for an outing and returned them without the rubber eyecups (#^@!*&+!!!).
Have a great time

JRP-

I agree, whoever is setitng up the technical specs on lenses missed the boat...I hope the full product line catalogs maintain the information.

As far as the binoculars are concerned, I went with the Action V series, 7x50 shoreline under $100 at B&H. Nice and bright. I decided against the 10x50 because of the shallower eye relief. These things are BRIGHT. If I upgrade, I'm definately looking into the Superior E 12x50. Sorry to hear about the "lost" Astroluxe - that would definately put me back some.

Hope everything went well with the surgery. Keeping you in my prayers...
