12x50mm PCF WP II Good Astronomy Bino!
 
Though some might find this information useful, I recently ordered the Pentax 12x50mm PCF WP II and have had it out the last few nights using it with my 11x56mm Gemini binoculars that I've used for the last few years. Here are my quick impressions and notes: I did some comparisons between the 11x56mm Gemini and the 12x50 PCF WP II Pentax on the night sky. In short, I could see the same faintest stars in each binocular mounted. The 11x56 has a ~1% barrel overlap (pretty dang good) while the Penta...

Straight to the Eyes - No Assembly Required
 
In the past I had focused on zoom capable binoculars but have never really been satisfied with the visual quality. After some research I decided on a fixed power setup with a larger lens. I am very pleased with the results. There is an almost 3D affect and since I only need to worry about focus it is quick to get on target. The focus lock helps when you are looking out to a specific distance. These binocs are not too heavy and even though I don't plan on swimming with them they are good to 3 fee...

Typical Chinese 'hit-or-miss' quality control!
 
This review is from: Pentax 65809 PCF II 12x50 Waterproof Binocular (Electronics) I returned my first one to Adorama because when I looked down at the eyepieces in sunlight I saw the secondary reflections of the sun were different colors between the eyepieces. One or more of the glass surfaces was improperly coated, something that should have been caught by Quality Control before the binocular left the factory. Kudos to Adorama for handling the exchange in a timely manner, with...

EXTRAORDINARY VALUE
 
Construction is solid and top notch. Views provided by superb optics are bright, clear and first rate. I spend much time outdoors, and I am sure these binox will stand the tests of use and time. In summary, I am not surprised because all Pentax products that I have in the past or currently own, are extremely competent products at reasonable cost to the consumer, and these are no different. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THE PURCHASE OF A QUALITY, FULL SIZE PAIR OF BINOCULARS, I AM CERTAIN YOU WIL...

Good resolution and focus to the edge
 
I purchased for astronomy and occasional terrestrial use. Chose the pentax WP II line for the good resolution and focus to the edge of field, and was not dissapointed in that regard. Seems fine for limited hand held use, but for extended use I mount the binoculars. For mounted astronomy use the 12x is a good magnification for many objects. The field of view is a bit limited compared to other similar product lines, but I preferred a smaller field that is sharp to the edge to a larger one that get...

Eyecups pinch your nose
 
I like the build quality. The optics aren't as good as I had been led to believe they would be, but good for the price. The one thing I do not like is the twist out eye cups. They are so bulky that they pinch my nose at all times. So although the eye to eye distance is rated down to 58mm, in practice you cannot go as narrow as this as the eye cups dig into your nose well before then. For me, this aspect of the design would make these Binoculars unsuitable for children, young adults or anyone wit...

Pentax Binos well made, good optics
 
These binos are well made with high quality optics. Views are bright. My only complaint is that right eye focus is very tight and hard to adjust. At 12X50 these are difficult to hold steady for long periods. A tripod/monopod mount is required for astronomy use.
