Nikon's Monarch 5 vs 7. Which to choose?

Nikon's Monarch 5 vs 7.  Which to choose? | How to Find the Best Binoculars | Scoop.it
We bought and compared the Monarch 5 vs 7 to see which we would choose if we could have only one.
Best Binoculars's insight:

Nikon upgraded the Monarch 5 to include ED glass and made it look similar to the Monarch 7 - what's the main difference between the two and is it enough to make the Monarch 7 worth the higher price?  I love the comparison reviews at www.OpticsReviewer.com - I can't think of any other single site that is as helpful or provides in-depth information in an easy-to-understand way!

Just Say No to Zoom Binoculars – Big Binoculars

Just Say No to Zoom Binoculars – Big Binoculars | How to Find the Best Binoculars | Scoop.it
In general, zoom binoculars have a host of problems that can't easily be overcome, and will always be out-performed by fixed-power binoculars (of similar price). We do not recommend zoom binoculars for this reason.
Best Binoculars's insight:
Zoom binoculars continue to be bought by those who hope they're getting a significant benefit from the "zoom feature." This well-illustrated article is particularly good in explaining why that isn't true.

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Incredible Zoom Binocular Sunglasses | How to Find the Best Binoculars | Scoop.it
These reviews are bullshit http://t.co/ibSRfyujZl
Best Binoculars's insight:

The customer reviews on these "Zoom Binocular Sunglasses" are worth reading if you've been thinking about buying.  There are two points worth making in this regard: 1) zoom binoculars are optically and mechanically inferior to single magnification power ones, and 2) optics worth having cost more to manufacture than the price at which these are selling.
