Summary: I bought these for hunting this year, and I'm really happy with them. I'm amazed at how clear they are. They are lighter than I thought they would be and they lens coating makes then excellent in low light conditions.
Excerpt: I purchased these binoculars for my girlfriend and the clarity is equal to my Swarovski's. She loves them-light weight and compact. So good I purchased a pair for my friend for helping us hunt a new deer and elk area. William F. Lee.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Clarity, Looking In Dark Timber, Small / Compact
Excerpt: The Pentax DCF CS 10X42 Binocular is an EXCELLENT product. The are crystal clear and bright. They are at an EXCELLENT price. They are light weight and very easy to handle. They are going to be very well liked by my step father for Christmas..
Pros: Crystal clear, Fog proof, High Quality Construction, Light weight, Price, Water Tight
Excerpt: Been using it for the last 3 years, from the Canadian Rockies to the Central American Rainforests, never let me down. Compares well to the high end units. The best bang for for your buck. Tried quite a few brands and models and for the price couldn't get anything better.
Excerpt: These are well-made, tight with great optics. I haven't really had a chance to field-test but I like them from my window looking out to tall trees where a hawk likes to roost and out to sea where I can see boats passing by.
Excerpt: I have been hunting with my husband for the past 6 years and this year is my first time to hunt on my own. I purchased these Bino's for my first hunt. They are awesome. I am near-sighted and these really are the best. I could see very clear out of them and they are light weight. And, just an FYI I killed my first deer.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I just returned from an Antelope hunt out West and had a chance to put the Pentax Model DCF CS 10x42 through a pretty demanding test. I'm very pleased with their overall performance. Great light gathering in low light, clarity, resolution, easy of operation (focus), quick target acquisition, and good form factor. These glasses are moderately light so wearing them from dawn to dusk while walking/stalking for miles each day was not an issue with a light harness.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof
Excerpt: We ordered these binoculars for a trip to Yellowstone in order to better see the wildlife. This was a great choice. They were not too heavy to carry or to hold for extended sightings, they were durable on hikes, and we were able to see bear and wolves from a long distance. We were very happy with the [...] price at B&H and will keep them in mind when ordering in the future.
