Pentax DCF SP 8x43 Binocular

  • Excerpt: Excellent, sturdy bins for birding I've owned a pair of  since 2005, and I have only good things to say about them. I use my Pentax DCF SP 8x43 Binocular for birding and for fieldwork, and they've been with me in all kinds of weather and remain one of my favorite possessions.

Pentax DCF SP 8x43 Binocular

  • Excerpt: I must be spoiled; I'm now realizing that my Pentax Papilio 6.5x21 binocs are even more fantastic than I thought. I wanted a bit more power, and after reading various reviews (and with my good luck on the Pentax Papilios), I decided on the Pentax 8x43 DCF SP .

Good, but doesn't live up to expectations

Rick Davis, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: These are very nice binoculars, but the optics do not appear to be any better than my Nikon Monarch which are 1/2 the price. The eyecups are nicer, and they have a little nicer feel than the Monarchs but I don't think that they are worth twice the money.
  • Pros: Well constructed, good optics
  • Cons: price

Pentax 8x43 DCF SP Binoculars

Jo, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: I have been impressed with this product and make use of them whenever I'm in the field. These binoculars and robust enough to be carried in all weathers I encounter and I'm glad not to have to worry about them getting wet etc!
  • Pros: Robust enough for fieldwork and off-track bird watching
  • Cons: Can get a little heavy after a full day and with a full pack

My opinion of Pentax 8x43 DCF SP Binoculars

Mr. N. G. Moore, Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: My Swift Osprey binoculars are over 20 years old and were in need of replacement. Having researched the internet thouroughly, and reading many reviews, I decided to go for the Pentax DCF SPs. I found them advertised, through Amazon, at a very low price and went for it. These binoculars are superb.

  • Summary: Excellent product, value for money. Amazon in this case not doing enough for the customer, these are £50 cheaper at Microglobe who's service is as good.
