In 2021, Nikon replaced its successful Monarch 7 binocular line, first with a just slightly refined „Monarch M7“ line of binoculars, then for some sizes also with an upgraded M7 PLUS – written „M7+“ – version which, in contrast to the M7 binoculars, features the field flattener from the Monarch HG line of binos. The Monarch M7 8×30 presented here is in essence the same as the previous Monarch 7 8×30 (see×30/ ), but the M7 got an external makeover with a modernized body armour, lockable diopter adjustment ring (same system als in the Monarch HG) and improved AR coatings.
