Nikon Prostaff P3 8x42 binoculars review

There’s a lot to love about the Nikon Prostaff P3 binoculars. Here, we’ve reviewed the 8×42 models as they give 8x magnification with larger 42mm objective lenses that are best suited to stargazing but three other models exist in the line-up: 8×30; 10×30 and 10×42 versions. Each slightly more expensive as you go up in magnification and objective lens size but they are incremental differences.

The Prostaff P3s are a roof prism design binocular and as a result, are slim in shape. They’re also light at just over 1 lb (465g) and can easily fit underneath a zipped-up overcoat should the rain start to fall. They feel pretty durable in the hand as well, a stiff hinge prevents them from slipping apart when hiking and a smooth focus wheel is simple to operate even with thick gloves on. The resin chassis is enveloped in a rubberized armor to prevent damage from knocks and scrapes.
