Nikon Action Extreme 12x50 ATB
Released September, 2005
The Pros:Ergonomically designed - feels very comfortable in the hands. Wide viewing - features a larger field of vision compared to similar binoculars. Lots of sharpness and detail at the center.
The Cons:Mediocre lens quality and prism coating. Poor lens cover design - will easily get lost. Might be too heavy for children.
The Nikon Action Extreme 12x50 ATB, now available as the mostly similar 12x50 CF, are one of six options in the Action Extreme line of Porro-style binoculars intended for hunting and other outdoor activities, and targeting buyers requiring superior durability in a variety of conditions.

Full-size models (50mm objective diameter) are also available with 7x, 10x, and 16x zoom. Like the other Action Extreme models, the 12x50 ATB feature a more rugged construction than regular Nikon binoculars, ensuring waterproof, fog-proof, and shockproof performance. The lenses feature multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings, reducing glare, increasing light transmission, and optimizing image quality. The cheaper 7x50 version, however, provides a brighter image.
