Superior Optics As expected, this Pentax product is excellent value for the money. This model has superior sharpness and provides a bright field of view. IMHO, overall optics are A+. The ability to mount it on a tripod makes it great for using it for bird watching. For it’s size it is not excessively heavy. Overall, well constructed. Water ressistance is another plus.The only draw backs I note are:1. The cover for the eye piece is a one-piece design that fits over both eye pieces. One needs to “spread” open the binoculars in order for the eye peices to grip the cover.2. The covers for the main lenses tend to come off when the binoculars are removed from the carrying case. Not a big issue…perhaps a hard case would have solved that issue. The lens caps them selves seem to fit snuggly.

Excellent astronomy binoculars I had been looking for binoculars for general use and astronomy. Look at a constellation with 10 stars to the naked eye and then there’s hundreds! The crispness of the image was stunning, in all conditions from dull to bright sunlight, with light transmission excellent and minimal obvious internal reflections even looking towards a source of light. These feel incredibly good in your hands. They have slight ergonomic depressions as though someone squeezed their hands into them so hard it left a slight imprint. The Pentax uses a flatter lens system which effectively makes all of the field of view you see very sharp.
