I purchased these a couple of years ago for mountain rescue work. I wanted something lightweight, sufficient power, and that would work well with glasses. They succeeded superbly on all accounts. I now am glasses-free (thanks to Lasics!) and the binocs work equally well without glasses. Nice adjustments that are easy to locate and use. They are an excellent trade-off between weight and size on one hand, and performance on the other hand. Also, they seem to be rugged, although I have yet to launch them off a cliff face.

Considering the cost of some binoculars, these are affordable and offer great performance.

Update November 2012: I still have not launched them off a cliff face, but they continue to work beautifully. On a recent search and rescue mission, two of my team mates were surprised at the clarity and magnification as we searched a rock face for two lost (and possibly injured, or worse) hunters. My mates were ready to toss their larger and heavier binocs. These would have been perfect for our recent safari to Tanzania, light weight (the guide did have Nikons, great units too, but much larger and heavier).

This is my first high quality binoculars and I've very impressed with Pentax in the quality of the product. I have other Pentax products and they all seem to be of very high quality and good performance.

The binoculars come in a very nice case that is slightly padded. It also comes with a very nice method of attaching and detaching the neck strap. Instead of having to loop through a small hole like most binoculars, these come with little snap in clips that clip right into the body instantly. You can also detach them quickly as well. Although not necessary, it is a very nice touch and it is the little things in this binocular that I find stand out.

Another nice touch is that the diopter setting for the right eye is in the center of the binocular that stays hidden until you need to adjust. You just push on the "button" and it pops out to let you adjust to your eye. Then you simply push it back in , which has a nice quality snap, and it will stay protected against accidental changes.

The binoculars also allow two eye relief settings. The eye cups pop out to two different heights or can stay flush if needed. Finally, to change the width of the eye distance both pieces bend TOGETHER evenly and smoothly which is nice. Everything feels very solid and seems to have been thought out well in design.

Now onto the quality of view. Excellent. Very impressed. Everything is very clear, sharp and also bright which is good considering this is a 10x25 binocular. Generally 25mm binoculars are dim and worse at higher magnifications. I was debating getting the 8x25 instead to get a brighter image but the optics are very well designed that it picks up light well.

Features I am pleased with:
* An affordable, light-weight (10.6 oz) binocular with fully multi-coated optics for hiking, travel or general use including occasional bird-watching (not for tracking birds in flight) during daytime outdoor activities
* One central focusing knob with adjustable diopter ring getting the targets in view quickly
* Eye-relief of 15 mm (14 to 16 mm recommended for eyeglass wearers; other comparable model has only 11.1 mm)
* Exit pupil of 2.5 mm (2 to 4 mm recommended for daytime use)
* Field of view 261 ft (wide enough for 10X magnification power)
* Near focusing distance 6.2 ft (other comparable model has 9.8 ft)
* Tripod socket (nice extra feature for occasions requiring real steady viewing; any tripod with traditional mounting platform works okay without requiring an adapter U suggested)
* A good trade-off between weight, performance and cost

I was looking for a binocular under 1 pound that nonetheless had the optical quality of a larger binocular. Consumer Reports recommended this one, and the price was right--in the range of $70-$80. They are indeed lightweight, compact, easy to focus, let in adequate light, and the view is very sharp and clear. My only complaint is that the strap attaches forward of the center of gravity so that the binocular has a tendency to flip upside-down against my bosom. The field of view isn't very big-natch, they're "compact" - so they are good for bird watching, looking at distant details, etc., but I wouldn't recommend them for watching sports. This model is affordable and useful for my modest needs.

Beware: Though these binocs are not bad optically for what they cost, they are fragile. My pair lost barrel alignment after only a few months of use. They were not dropped or handled rough. Pentax charges $20 to repair under warranty and you pay the shipping to them. That's more than a third the cost of the binocs. There's something wrong with that picture.

Perfect for use to take to sports events. Light weight and very comfortable to hang around your neck for long periods. The clarity and light input was great and we found 10x magnification to be just right for watching hockey games from our near nosebleed seats. Pop out eyepieces are very convenient for eyeglass wearers.
