Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 Binocular

  • Excerpt: Great retirement binos My wife and I, now being retired for some/several years (10x yrs.), were looking for a lightweight/compact binocular glass to be used only in/at our home's garden here, no need to always drag out the powerful full size Zeiss glasses every time to just be used at 50 feet or so for observing the local birds & butterflies.

Excellent product and great value.

  • Summary: We are avid "birders" who own numerous pairs of binoculars, several of which are much more expensive. We own 2 pairs of these binoculars and have bought another pair as a gift. For the money, this is an outstanding product. Its most impressive feature is the ability to close focus (on butterflies, for example); distance viewing is also quite good. We also own the 6 power version but prefer the 8. Very highly recommended.

  • Excerpt: Close-up views After seeing a few people with the Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 Binocular at our butterfly walks at Estero Llano Grande State Park, I decided to get a pair.  WOW, is about all I can say.

  • Summary: Handy gadget
  • Pros: Light, small size Optical quality is pretty good Close focal distance (0.5m)
  • Cons: Not really. I know the limitations before making the decision If you are in distant/tiny objects such as flying birds, you may want a different scope.

  • Summary: I love these! It is taking the place of my hand lens where I had to get on my knees and put my face close to the flowers. Now I can stay standing and still see the details!

Pentax Papilio 8.5x21

18 October 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this for my wife. She normally uses 8x42 Pentax and Loves them. Only problem is, she is always backing up when wanting to look at something close. She really didn't even want to try these but I ordered them anyway for her to try.. They arrived promptly and packaged well. She immediately fell in love with the light weight, fast focusing, CLOSE focusing, and bright views!! She also likes the screw down eyepiece design, versus the fold down on her older models.
