    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    I think I read somewhere that Kyoie will not sell Monarchs to USA customers because Nikon USA sells them here, unlike EDG and E2, but I could be wrong on that.

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    There's a whole world of options in small 8x roofs. You could go with one of the lighter, smaller ones like Nikon MHG 8x30 or a regular 8x32 model. I would try them out in person. It's the only way to sort out the options, especially if you're seeking eye relief, more comfort, less blackouts...
