Nikon Prostaff P3 8×42 binocular review

The Nikon Prostaff P3 binocular line is a series of four entry-level binoculars aimed at an audience who wants Nikon-quality optics but at beginner prices. The P3s come in 8×30, 8×42, 10×30 and 10×42 versions and we’re reviewing the 8x42s because they sit roughly in the middle of the four models price-wise.

Their resin body is coated in a rubberized armor and all the controls work smoothly with a confident tension in the focus wheel and hinge to hold firm when needed. They sit at the bottom of Nikon’s pyramid of binoculars with the P7 range slightly above the P3 and the Monarch line well at the top featuring the very best binoculars Nikon can produce.
