Excellent binoculars These Pentax binoculars cost me less than half what I paid for the Zeiss binoculars (which I returned), yet provide better quality, better optics and a more rugged “feel”. The Zeiss binoculars, however, look nicer, are much more compact and are much lighter than the Pentax, oh….., the Zeiss came with a very nice leather case.Conclusions:Pentax pro: more rugged body, better and sharper optics, it’s water resistant, and a very good value.Pentax Con: Heavy, much larger.Considering all of the above, I am glad I returned the Zeiss and kept the Pentax binoculars.

A step up These binoculars are definitely a step up from the cheaper ones I used to buy. I have worked my way up from discount-store cheapies to sub-mid-range (sub-$100), to these, which I bought based on a recommendation in Field and Stream magazine. The clarity and construction quality compared to previous binoculars I have owned is noticeable.The Pentax warranty is a little odd, in that you pay a shipping and handling fee and send them back, so you are always out money, even if the defect occurs early in the life of the binoculars. The good news is that it is a lifetime warranty and covers damage incurred by the owner (other than purely cosmetic damage, theft, or loss), so I think it’s probably a pretty good tradeoff.I have read that a good pair of binoculars has to cost $500 or more, but these are good enough for what I do with them (camping, hunting, sports, etc.).

Great Binoculars at a Excellent Price Extremely clear and lightweight. I used these for bird-watching. The large field of view is the main reason I selected these. I wanted to be able to quickly spot birds in flight or on the move and felt the large field of view would help.There are several binocular reviews online which place these in the top 10 for good balance of features and price. My wife has the Nikon Monarch which is an excellent pair of binoculars for about the same price. If you want to shop/compare, you may considered those as an alternative. However I’m very pleased with my Pentax.The only negative is the strap is very thin and seems to be low quality. I’m looking to change mine strap to something more comfortable. Regardless, I highly recommend these binoculars.
