Excerpt: These binoculars are a great value. The view is clear and crisp - I wear glasses and the binoculars are perfect for me. I use the binoculars regularly along the beach to view birds and ships. I really like the binoculars so far. They will also be used to watch sporting events (surfing, triathlon, etc.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: My wife carries these for our overseas trips. Great for general use and very lightweight. This is our second pair of this ilk, replacing ones that were stolen. The only downside is that they won't spread out far enough for my comfort while wearing glasses. My personal pair are 8x40 in size. B&H is our perferred source and has been for many years.
Excerpt: Although not as compact as my rook prism Minolta binoculars, these are much sharper, with no apparent phase error or fringing either. The eye relief is just sufficient for use with my glasses on. These lightweight, waterproof binoculars are just great for my use--theatre, beach and vacations...
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I love professional baseball but I can only get cheap seats so I bought this binocular worrying that 8X zoom maynot be good enough. It was plenty good enough and enjoyed the game so much more. I wear glasses and it has a setting for that on eyepiece. It's small and easy to carry around. The only thing was that the Diopter adjusting Ring does not snap in place 80% of the time. I just have to keep pressing it down until it locks into place.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: Brought this pair for hiking and watching sports. They are light to medium weight, sit comfortably in the hand and have a solid and quality feel to them. They are very easy to hold steady for long periods. Color is a slight navy blue which is a bit different from the pictures. But still very attractive in my opinion. Its possible to lock the focus ring for the right eyepiece which makes it easier to just use without worrying about re-adjusting.
Summary: Kikkerten er lille og ligger godt i hånden. Mærker man på den, giver den er solidt og gedigent indtryk. Justeringen af skarphed foregår nemt uden slør og kikkerten er brillevenlig, idet de gummibeklædte øjestykker kan forskydes med en drejebevægelse. Den optiske kvalitet er i orden, da den tegner rigtig skarpt over et stort felt, og de små randfænomener der kan ses, er ikke værd at skrive om.
Summary: The Pentax 8x25 UCF WP Porro Prism Binoculars are everything I wanted and more. Lightweight and easy to use. Perfect for people with or without spectacles as they are adjustable. Great for both far distances and fairly close up. I would recommend them to anyone.
