An excellent purchase.
 
I purchased these while serving in Iraq for off-duty star gazing and on-duty tactical observation. These things are absolutely amazing. Their ability to draw in light is unbelievable for the price. No matter the weather conditions, I always have a clear view becuase not only are they fully multi-coated, but they're also fog proof. The rubber outer coating is easy to clean (believe me, in Iraq that is important). Do yourself a favor; buy these and quit looking at the more expensive Canons an...

Pentax PCF II 10x50
 
These are my first pair of "nice" binoculars and I love them so far.I'm using them for astronomy and their views are clear as a bell. Well worth the extra bucks. The rubber coating is thick and makes them feel sturdy and easy to hold. The focus knob, exit pupil adjustment, and tripod mount cover all turn smoothly. Focusing does take some effort because of the seals but in my experience all waterproof bino focus knobs take some work to turn.I tried Nikon, Swarovski, Leupold, Celestron, Mead, B...

A fine piece of optics - very clear
 
These Pentax Binoculars are a very fine piece of optics . They are very clear , smooth in focussing and look/feel very tough.I use them for night sky watching and they work very well for that. I looked up for Comet Holmes and the Binocular once focussed gave a crystal clear view of the night sky--- no fuzzy objects. Some distant star clusters come out really sharp on these binoculars. And it is fog proof and dew proof. I am very satisfied with it.Compare this with a Nikon - I think Pentax will b...

Still going strong after 30 years
 
I have a pair of the original Pentax PCF 10x50 binoculars. As best I can recall I purchased them while in high school, which means no later than 1980. In the course of 30 years I've used them quite a bit for sports and general use, lost the lens caps, and had to clean my kids fingerprints from the lenses innumerable times; but I find that after all that time they still work as well as they did when new. Great light gathering capability, good balance (if a bit heavy) in the hand, clear optics....

Pentax PCF II
 
I bought these binoculars after studying reviews for a few weeks and for the price, I really can't complain! I'm using them primarily for astronomical purposes.PROS: Great price (I found prices ranging from about $250 down, and this was the best price I could find); solid construction; great optics.CONS: The focusing knob isn't the smoothest...requires a bit of pressure; the lens caps/case/strap that comes with the binos are a bit cheesy, especially the ocular lens "shield" (I'll probably sea...

Seeing stars
 
After doing a good deal of research, I picked these up as an introduction to star/moon gazing. I've been extremely pleased! My first night out, I spotted Saturn quickly. The view is clear nearly to the edges and I was able to see MANY stars invisible to the naked eye. Trying to view something that small steadily isn't easy when hand-holding, so I got a tripod mount and got a great steady view. Still, I have found that when trying to spot formations or craters on the moon, I can do fine by h...

Just as good as the old model
 
My old PCF's died a few months ago. Purchased in the 1990's, they were bright, tough and made in Japan (High End these days) with amazing clarity. I sent them into Pentax for repair and was hoping to get them back. Instead, they replaced my beloved PCF's with the new model. Made in China, i was questioning the quality right off the bat, so much so that I listed them for sale immediately... A few days have passed without a nibble and I decided to open them up and take a peak... figuring the ...

Wow!
 
Wow these are truly a great pair of binos. I knew from other reviews the build quality was nice but in person these things are built like tanks. Comparing them to Nikon 10x50 Action binos is night and day. The Nikons are built like toys compared to these. I hear the Action Extreme Nikons are built a little more solid though.Everything on the Pentax feels very well designed and thought out, they just feel solid and like it will last a long time. Looking though them the field of view is narrower t...

Good construction but bad caps
 
The caps that came with the binoculars are not good at all, but the rest seems to be excellent. I just tried once, in a rainy night but aiming to some distant light points in the street seems to give an excellent and bright view. Its weight is perfect, easy to carry and hold still. They're my first pair, so I don't have much of experience, but it seems really nice.

Excellent bino's!
 
Last year, I bought the Pentax PCF II 20x60 binoculars. I was primarily interested in stargazing, and my logic was "bigger is better". I couldn't have been more mistaken. Although the 20x60's are good binoculars, they are impossible to hold steady. You need a very solid tripod to use them. A cheap, light-weight tripod won't really work either, as you will see any little shake or vibration magnified 20-fold... especially when stargazing!Since that time, I did some homework, and learned that 10x p...
