PENTAX quality and clarity are within reach, at a price that’s within reach, too. These compact porro-prism models feature a dual-axis, single body design with synchronized eyepiece adjustment. Aspherical lens elements give you edge-to-edge sharpness. Clear images and clearly affordable.

Product Features

  • Fully-multi-coated optics assure maximum light transmission resulting in high quality viewing. Every surface of every element is fully coated minimizing internal glare and flare and giving a bright clear view.
  • Unique Uni-body design enhances durability by locking objective lenses in a single housing and synchronizing the eyepiece movement. This minimizes moving parts and assures these binoculars will function properly and clearly for years to come.
  • Aspherical lens elements, which are critical in compact binoculars, provide exceptional edge-to-edge sharpness. This assures that items on the edge of your field of view are just as sharp as those in the center.
  • The UP models are offered in unique, attractive color options that match your personal style.

Highly recommended! Superb! Don’t buy the discontinued original model just to save a few bucks. Get this one. It’s contrasty and sharp and unlike the older version, it is fully multicoated. On the old model, the external eyepiece lens does not have the greenish tinge of the multicoated new version and you get light from behind you reflected back at you. The 6.5x power is quite adequate and you don’t get any shaking distractions of the 8.5 version. Close focus is spectacular. Highly recommended!

The king of “bug binoculars” and a very nice compact model overall These are very nice little compacts. They’re not as difficult to use as others I’ve tried. The problem I have with compacts is the eyepiece (ocular) lenses are always small with a very narrow beam of light and these eyepieces have to be placed and held directly over the center of the eye. Higher power compacts such as the 8×21 and 10×21 models are virtually impossible for me to use since that beam of light is even narrower. The 6.5x Papilios are a bit brighter and easier on my eyes. To anyone who hesitates due to the lower magnification, don’t sweat it. A 6.5 magnification is pretty decent and it’s easier to hold steady, especially compared to 10 power models. I doubt you’ll see much difference between a 6.5x and a 7x.

Would buy again. Excellent for my purposes. Got these for small/convenient glove-box binocs…but they’re really better than that. Chose the 6.5x for larger exit-pupil, less jiggle, and better close-focus…and they deliver on all three specs. Small, light, smooth controls…very convenient. Oh yes…notice, too, that they come with a lifetime warranty. Pretty sweet.
