Nikon Monarch 5 10x42 Binoculars $295.08 Delivered @ NoFrills eBay


For anyone who wants a good quality pair of binoculars, the Nikon Monarch 5 10x42 is now under $300. They were already very cheap before the eBay sale at $368. There is a very good reason these are probably the most popular bird/butterfly watching binoculars in the world-they are very affordable and very good quality. They have ED lenses but do NOT have an anti scratch coating. The Monarch 7 has an anti scratch coating but cost over $200 more for the anti scratch coating and a little wider FOV.

At this price, it's pretty much unbeatable for entry level quality binoculars. Usually they are more expensive than the Vortex Diamonbacks and Bushnell Legend L series.

For comparison
Bintel: $479
Ted's: $424

  • Very good bin for the price.

  • Thanks FiftyCal, just bought some for a Serengeti Safari. Didn't expect to be buying Bino's today that's for sure.

    • I just bought a pair for hunting. Didn't expect to buy them today either, but decided to take a look.

      I've been following the price of these for about 6 months and anything sub 450 is already a pretty good price. Sub 400 is uncommon outside of that listing. Sub 300 seems to be unheard of

      • Funny how you can use these for both sides of looking at wildlife lol. Thanks again for the deal.

  • Are the Prostaff 10x42 comparable?
    I bought my dad a set of the Prostaff 10x50 for $252 after discounts.

    • The Prostaffs are decent but a step below. The Monarch 5 have ED glass, whereas the Prostaff do not.

  • Great price, and completely agree with op about these binoculars, they're the most common for birders, until they decide to shell out $3000 or so on a pair of Swarovski binoculars. We bought ours from a 20% off Ryda sale some time back, but No Frills is cheaper on this 20% off sale.


    Wow sweet deal. Snagged one for a trip to the Serengeti in a few months. You really can't beat that price and added a small additional item to get TRS on the deal to make it even better.

  • I spent $100 on an Olympus 8X25 PCI about 2 years ago. It's for bird watching. I would like to upgrade but I'm too cheap.
