If you are a diehard Nikon optics aficionado—serious enough to want to be one of only a handful of people worldwide to own a particular model—then you’ll want to take a look at these exclusive 100th Anniversary Limited Edition Nikon binoculars, which include the iconic 8x30 EII and the recently introduced, hand-built WX 7x50 IF and 10x50 IF models.

Since its introduction nearly 40 years ago, the 8x30 E Series has become one of Nikon’s best-selling binoculars, and are recognized as “the standard” among Nikon binocular fans. An updated 8x30 “EII” model was introduced during the late 1990s and continues to sustain popularity. While maintaining the optics and magnesium-alloy body design of the current 8x30 EII, the 100th Anniversary Edition offers an exclusive metallic grey body color with 100th Anniversary logo imprinted on the objective side, special 100th Anniversary Edition neckstrap and case and a distinct product package design with 100th Anniversary logo sticker affixed. Production of the 8x30 EII 100th Anniversary binocular will be limited to just 400 worldwide. MSRP: $799.95

  



WX 7x50 IF and 10x50 IF
Now, if your wallet is deep and you want to be part of something with even more exclusivity, only 100 (combined total) of the Anniversary Edition WX 7x50 IF and 10x50 IF binoculars are being offered. Here are some of the features that make these hand-built binos so spectacular: A super-wide field of view and a Field Flattener Lens System compensate for curvature of field across the entire field of view. This means that the sharp image obtained at the center of the field of view continues all the way to the periphery. Additionally, the WX series employs Abbe-Koenig prisms that feature total reflection on all surfaces, and provide a high light transmission rate. High-quality multi-layer coating, featuring uniformly high light transmittance across the entire visible range, is also applied to all lenses and prisms to realize a clearer, more natural view. Also, three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements employed in each tube compensate for chromatic aberration that can cause color fringing, realizing a contrast-rich and high-resolution view. A WX binocular exclusive tripod adaptor (TRA-4) and hard case are also supplied. Both models come engraved with 100th Anniversary limited edition serial number, the Nikon 100th Anniversary logo on the binocular body and a commemorative leather strap embossed with 100th Anniversary logo designed for the WX models. Again, the WX 100th Anniversary Edition is restricted to just 100 total production of both models combined. MSRP: $5,999.95 for the 7x50 and $6,399.95 for the 10x50 model.
