Birding Binoculars

From: Laura
Subject: Birding Binoculars

I’m a novice birder just out of college, and I’m looking for decent binoculars at a student price. My ornithology professor in college purchased binoculars from Eagle Optics for the class, and he suggested that I look into getting a Vortex Diamondback for myself. I’m trying to compare the Nikon Monarchs to the Vortex Diamondbacks, but I’m unfamiliar with some of the terminology and measurements. Other than the difference in price between the two, is there any other great variation that I should consider, since I’m just starting out in birding?

Thanks, Laura.
The Diamondback and Monarch are both great at their price. The main differences are that the Monarchs are a bit sharper and brighter optically and that the Diamondback will have a more comprehensive warranty coverage.

The Vortex would come to Eagle Optics if you needed service.
You would send the Monarch to Nikon for any repairs or service.
