Basically, these binocs are a real treat to own and well worth the price. I hope that Pentax (and hopefully other companies) continue this line of product development. If an image-stabilized version of the 8.5x21 came out for $400, I think I would buy it and just keep the other pair around as a spare.Read more ›
Carrying one of these in the field is like having a long-distance dissecting microscope in your pocket.
I purchased mine prior to a hike to Paradise Park on Mt Hood in Oregon, and I could not be more pleased with its performance.
For example, an unusual-looking fly alit on a wildflower in the meadow, and I was able to observe both in great detail.
The anatomy of the fly was quite clear -- its palps, its eyes, the veins of its wings, even the hairs on its body -- all were crisply presented.
Similarly, every structure of the flower was revealed -- a better view, in fact, than I might obtain with a magnifying glass in close proximity.
It was also easy to get a good image of distant objects; for example, to observe features on the mountain, or to identify birds in the trees at a range of roughly 50 meters.
For distance viewing it is certainly no match for a full-sized binocular, in part because the small separation of the objectives cannot support the enhancement of depth that a large binocular offers.
On the subject of size, this instrument is surprisingly small. With the eyecups turned down and the eyepieces at maximum separation, it measures 4.25" wide by 4.5" deep by 2.25" thick.
With the eyecups fully extended and the eyepieces at minimum separation, these figures become 3.5" x 4.75" x 2.65" respectively.
The included eyepiece cover and case fit the binocular best with the eyepieces at full separation.
The eyecups are rigid (not roll-down) and rotate as they extend, with click-stops at zero-, half- and full-extension.
The instrument alone masses 296 grams (~10.Read more ›

Fabulous. Like carrying around a field microscope that also works for birds. For far range bird viewing you'd need something more powerful, but this is a gem for the... Read morePublished 6 months ago by A.E. Gronvold

Totally amazing! Use around the house for a better view of anything a bit too far away to see clearly, even a spider in the corner of the ceiling.Published 10 months ago by Anthony Ingenito
Bought as a gift. For the price, it's an excellent set of binoculars. Little hard to adjust for comfortable viewing, but it's not hard to use.Published 11 months ago by Chris Casper
I bought these to look at mosses and flowers close up without all of that bending that seems to effortless when you are decades younger than I am now. They work perfectly well. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Stevan Davies
