Nikon are pleased to announce a new addition to the Sport Optics range. The new HG L Series Binoculars offer the same high level of optical performance, durability and mechanical precision as the current HG Series, but with the added benefit of being almost 20% lighter than their predecessors.
The HG L series are the ideal binoculars for top-end birdwatchers and all those who demand the highest quality with a lighter feel. In addition, the external materials of all new HG L series binoculars do not use chloroethylene*, this is fully aligned with Nikon’s commitment to the environment.
The new HG L Series Binoculars will offer the same range as the HG Series and will be available from September 2004.
