Summary: I Live on the 29th floor overlooking the city. This pair of binoculars is an excellent upgrade over the little ones I was using! It is easy to adjust...clear and focuses well for different distances. The only drawback is that they are a little heavy to hold.
Excerpt: I wanted binoculars with power, but that I was still able to use without the need of a tripod! These binoculars come equipped with a tripod mount if necessary, but they fill the bill for my needs perfectly without one! Great magnification for viewing Earth bound objects, and star gazing alike! Perfect for viewing comets such as the Pan-STARRS Comet, which is still visible in the Western horizon just after sunset! I couldn't be happier!
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: I BOUGHT THIS ITEM BECAUSE MY JOB, I'M AN ADVENTURE TOUR GUIDE IN THE CLASSIC INCA TRAIL AND MACHUPICCHU(ONE OF THE NEW SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD). WITH THIS PENTAX I IMPROVE THE EXPERIENCE OF HIKING AN VISITING THE INCA SITES THAT WE HAVE IN PERU. I LIKE IT BECAUSE THEY FOCUS VERY WELL.
Summary: Splashproof, rubberized - slip, durable. With good multiplicity and excellent quality images are obtained. Sufficiently large diameter front lens (50mm) gives a very vivid and clear image for up to 16 fold increase.
Summary: This product belongs to medium class, not the top level as expected fron a brand like Pentax While body and structure is perfect, lens are non perfect, vision does not reflect enough light. I have a similar 16x50 of Nikon and between the two the second is a superb binocular in comparison Delusion.
Summary: I bought this binoculars after reading reviews here. Maybe I just got a bad copy but I used it only for ten minutes before deciding to return it. I couldn't get a clear picture, there were chromatic abberations and my eyes started to hurt. I suppose you get what you pay for - 16x50 from a big brand like Pentax for less than £70 is just too good to be true. Overall disappointing purchase, especially since I own Pentax DSLR and lenses, which are excellent.
Summary: Optically very good, very robust and easy to handle considering the 16x magnification, but the focusing mechanism suffered from backlash which made it difficult to achieve perfect focus quickly.
