Very bright and clear.

And the diopter is nice since once you get "your" spot you don't have to look through the binocs to get your right eye focused.

Very pleased and would recommend these glasses for general viewing.

UPDATE:
I came across a deal for a pair of Vanguard 10.5x45 ED binos ($350 with a $50 mail-in rebate). I ordered the Vanguard thinking that having ED glass it is going to kick my Pentax's a#%?!. Well I received the Vanguard in great anticipation. I took them out last weekend to see who wins the battle. Surprise-surprise, Pentax is the better of the two. I am seriously in doubt about ED glass. The Vanguard CA is much worse than Pentax. Because of the glowing reviews and all the 5 Star recommendations, I thought the Vanguard can at least better the Pentax in sharpness. Mistaken again. The Pentax is the clear winner by far. So people buy this thing knowing that you are getting a bargain. Again, if you want the ultimate binos, go get a Leica but bring another $2K with you because that is what the Leica will cost you. But for us the regular folk, the Pentax is a bargain to behold.

Original Post:
I did a lot of research in buying these binoculars. Originally I bought a Barska 10x42 on a local retailer visit. I knew the optics could not be that good given the price ($40) but I wanted to have a pair of compact 10x binos. After using the "cheapo" binoculars for a few months, I knew I was missing a lot so I decided to research and test different units. I looked at Nikon's Monarch ($320) Leopold's ($499) offerings. For good measure the sales guy at Bass Pro showed me a pair of $2,000 Swarowski binos. All three were good. I was told for very far viewing the extra money for the Swarowski's pay dividends. Well I am a photographer and use premium lenses to capture images. I know the glass makes all the difference. I have always been a Pentax fan. The reviews on Amazon and few others pointed me to the Pentax unit. One major deciding factor was to be the warranty coverage.

I'm a research nut, really picky about my gear, and more than able to pay for what I want. These binoculars kick serious &$%*. 10 power, believe it or not, may be too much. I don't think you would go wrong with 8 but I went with 10 because I often have my rifle scope on 10 power also. You pick up more field of view with the 8 power also. And you can't touch this quality of optic for anywhere near the price of these on Amazon. Note, these are not compact binoculars you will stick in a chest pocket, but they aren't the full size, full frame version either. They're a really good medium size, fit in the cargo pocket on your hunting pants and aren't too heavy to carry. Perfect if you're just sitting on the stand or riding around. The strap needs work though, bad design. I'm looking for an alternative strap.

Well, let me start off by saying I am no binocular expert--in fact the only binoculars I have ever owned were cheapy cheapos and I could never get those to work correctly. I could never get that nice circle of a view like they do in the movies, and I could never seem to get them completely focused.

After mulling over how it would be cool to have a nice set of binocs for an upcoming trip I started to research them and at first I fell into the trap of wanting really high power binocs. Celestron had a couple of decent priced models but then I started researching "top end" binocs. I have to say I was kind of flabbergasted when I saw they could cost 3k!! (Although I really shouldn't have been that surprised since I own a dslr and those lenses can get very pricey.)

Well, I wasn't going to spend anywhere near 2-3k but I did see a pair of pentax binocs for about 1k which people said were as good as the Leica and Swarovskys. My camera gear is Pentax and they do make some top notch quality glass, so it wasn't surprising that they made quality binocs but 1k was still way more than I wanted to pay.

Then I found these and at 213 I finally found a price point I was comfortable with. And man, these are nice glasses--Night and day from cheapo brands. You can comfortably look through these for hours and not get strained. And the diopter is nice since once you get "your" spot you don't have to look through the binocs to get your right eye focused.

If you are looking for good but well priced binocs or if you've never had decent ones, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

BTW, someone mentioned that 10x is about tops for hand held and I would have to agree. Well, maybe if you are a brain surgeon you can go higher. But realistically don't go thinking you are going to be hand holding 12X+ binocs without severe shake--unless you get electronically stabilized ones$$$.

I have experience with many different binoculars, some very expensive. I found these binoculars to be as good if not better than just about all of the ones i have used. Considering the price, i would consider these to be the best! I highly recommend.

Color Name: Black
I have owned my pair of Pentax binoculars for almost 10 years now and they have been to Africa three times on hunting safaris and then on sightseeing trips and other hunts. I have used them for hours a day and have never had any eye fatigue. They are crisp and clear and bright. The only problem I had was with the right eye cup. It is a friction extension eye cup with this older pair and the right one became loose so it would not stay extended. I checked the web and found I could send them in for $19.95 and they would be covered under the warranty. Impressive. I just sent them in today so I don't know what will become of them but I have faith in Pentax. I will write an addendum to this review if things turn out bad.

Needless to say, I think these binoculars are the best deal out there for this price, and with a lifetime warranty. I would probably pay more than double for these binoculars after looking at others. One of my best purchases.
