    All of the binocular products from Pentax are made with the highest quality optics and mechanics. They're very serious when it comes to the quality of their products, including safety, and work toward meeting all the required standards.
    There are approximately 45 types and models of binoculars available from Pentax, grouped into either the compact and full size category. Pentax binoculars have various levels of magnification available. Their Papilio series has a magnification of 6.5X, but other magnifications available on other binoculars are 7X, 8X, 8.5X, 9X, 10X, 12X, and 12.5X. Few binoculars are higher in magnification. Pentax offers a fairly standard range when it comes to the objective lenses of all their binoculars. The average objective lens size of them all falls around the middle of the 17 to 60 range. With all of Pentax's binoculars, you'll get just over 100 ft. of view at 1000 yd. with their highest F.O.V. reaching over 400 yd. at the same distance.
    Some standard features are added to the selected models like, multicoating the lens elements that ensures the maximum light transmission through them; high performance glass Bak-4 type for good color reproduction and lesser aberrations;  and waterproof and fog free design.

    Delivered promptly binoculars exactly as advertised. Excellent optics for the money.

    I have been very pleased with this pair of binoculars. A good clear bright view through the optics easy to handle but I agree with other reviewers that the lense caps are far too loose and do not fit the shape of the lenses.

    An excellent deal from Microglobe for one of the classic porro-prism binoculars. At this price you cannot go wrong with binoculars that are as good as anything more than twice the price. Rugged good in the hands and incredibly sharp and bright images perfect for Astronomy and excellent as an all round pair that you can take anywhere without worrying about damaging easily.

    I own a few binoculars but these are amazing and have a wow factor that even surpasses my Pentax 7x50 which I always thought were the best binocs under £500 I ve used. Prior to buying these I tried a few "highly regarded" binoculars from Nikon Heliosport etc but none of them stood out as an improvement on what I own and I began to wonder how they gained such excellent reviews; I suppose it depends on what else you compare them with.

    Excellent binoculars. Well pleased.

    The bad, stiff focus wheel, and the good, everything else ok some might moan about the narrow view but not me these things make the Nikon EX, Bushnell Legend, Opticron Imagics look like cheap junk.
    I own or have owned all of the above so I can compare them and beleave me they really are that good, the only bino I own that can match the PCF WP II is Opticron badged HR WP. and then they cost twice as much.
    The fit and finish is just way out in front of anything on the UK market, the optics are as good as the HRWP 8x42 and that bino is one of the best porro's ever made.
