Nikon 7238 Action Ex Extreme 8 X 40 mm All Terrain Binoculars – Customer Review:
CRAZY GOOD FOR THE MONEY!
These are for anyone on a budget that wants to upgrade from that old pair of travel binoculars or from Uncle Fred’s 1954 hand-me-downs. They are *Waterproof* (very important, it’s easy to confuse these with the lower-quality Nikon Action range) and fogproof, with clear and bright images. Very solid feel and compact for a full-size Porro-prism design. The 7×35 version of the Action Extreme won the highest position in the Cornell Ornithology Lab 2005 binocular shootout out of 15 budget entries – probably because the 8×40 was not tested.
Yes, they aren’t perfect – higher price will get you sharper optics, lighter weights, and slightly better handling – but at this price the only alternative I could find is the Leupold 6×30 Yosemite for around 25% less – and that model is a 6x magnification.
I’m not sure why, but many sites don’t cover the warranty on these. You get excellent support from Nikon USA – a 25-year no-fault warranty with a $10 fix or replace fee for the original owner. Combined with the low price and build quality this could be the last pair of binoculars you will ever need to buy.
