Best View and Price

Northmaple, Adorama
17 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Have had these for only 3 days now... the clarity, focus adjustment, eyepiece stops, everything that counts is outstanding. How Pentax can produce this quality at this price with this warranty is remarkable. Tons of people buy roof prism glasses at 4-5 times the price and do not get the view this binoc produces. Take it from someone who knows, if you're into the VIEW buy these and pass them around to your friends...they will be impressed.

Just Right for my Application

juncags1, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I use the binocular for just about anything and it serves me well. Whether in my travels, nature exploration as well as at work (inspection of electrical equipment), I am very well satisfied with the unit.<br /><br />The only things I don't like are the lens caps which easily fall off and the pouch which leaves you wanting an extra pair of hands to hold the caps and pouch when using the binocular.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses

Consistent Mnfctrng,...

  • Excerpt: This is the second pair I purchased in 2 weeks. The second pair was identical to the first optically, i.e., edge of field, brightness, mechanically. Chose these binoculars for their usable field of view, weight and general purpose. This is a very good set for both terrestrial and astronomical use. Similar 8x40's at this price point state a wider field of view but the useable field is actually smaller.

Very good for the price

  • Excerpt: Purchased this as a gift and now returning to buy for myself. Bought for the following reasons: - Price point with regard to quality. - Dual use, day time and astronomy. - useful edge-of-field, good. - optical coating great for this price point. I would have expected a wider field of view in this size binocular but from the research I did this set actually has as much useable field of view as those advertising a wider degrees.

Great Quality/Value

Mike G., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am an avid outdoor-est and love viewing wildlife. After my first pair of PCF WP II binoculars were stolen, I decided to purchased another brand and type which had very good reviews. Well that was a big mistake. I purchased my second pair of PCF WP II binoculars and could not be happier. The clarity is exceptional and they are easily adjusted. Some reviews complain about the lens covers not fitting well, I'll concede that point. Some say they're heavy, maybe for some.

Good value

  • Excerpt: 5 stars given the low price and high optical quality! Also a great service by BHP photo (I ordered to Canada, they took care of the customs and delivery charge. It took 6 days from placing my order to recieving them. Shipped from New York to Western Canada). This is my 1st set of Bino's. My decision came down to these and the Nikon Action EX 8x40s. I did a lot of research online and decided on these due to their better viewable range.

Good glass, good build

  • Excerpt: These are great binocs for day and night use - I bought them for Astronomy and have been very happy with the flatness of field, contrast, and off-axis views. I have a cheap pair of 10x50s that was lying around, and these both show more detail and do it with more style, despite being far lighter. Great with glasses, too (as much as any binoculars are).

Great weather-resistant binocular

metalhoos, Ebay
1 April 2011
  • Summary: 8x40 is better for hand-hold. If you don't care about the weather-resistant feature, Nikon Action is cheaper and fantastic. But if you go outdoors a lot, at this price range, Pentax 8x40 PCF WP II is all you need. Great optics, great image quality, great weather-proof casing, I am so glad to get this model. There are lots of reviews, you can just google it. If the price is below $80, that will be the best deal.
