For over 90 years, Nikon has been making premium quality optical products for all types of outdoor pursuits. This long history of experience in engineering quality optics, aided by modern computer design, results in optical systems that achieve an ideal balance of maximized light transmission, high resolution and razor sharp, aberration-free images. With these optimized designs, Nikon utilizes the highest quality materials, superior production capabilities and strict quality control to build, service and support premium sport optics products.
Nikon offers a full line of quality binoculars, riflescopes, rangefinders, spotting scopes and Fieldscopes designed to meet the demands of our customers worldwide. Whether the requirement is for entry-level, advanced, mid-priced or high-end optics, Nikon remains committed to offering the discriminating user the finest selection of high quality optics available.
Nikon has been a longtime leader in the development and utilization of lens multicoatings in order to maximize light transmission. For instance, in the popular 10-lens surface riflescope optical system, Nikon was a driving force in genuinely bringing riflescopes up to an unprecedented level of 95% light transmission-the theoretical maximum- with well-balanced color contribution.
And while reducing the number of lenses in a scope in an effort to increase light transmission is possible, the compromise would be less compensation of aberration. Optical resolution can only be obtained through utilization of quality glass in sufficient quantity to form the optical composition. The combination of maximized light transmission, high-definition contrast and critical optical resolution is crucial for getting your crosshairs on game in dawn, dusk and twilight hours.
