Description

Pentax 8.5x21 Papilio


Need to get up really close in a hurry? You can. The PENTAX Papilio 8.5x21 binoculars incorporate a new mechanism that can offer a minimum focusing distance of just 18 inches. That's waaay shorter than the 6.5 feet offered by other PENTAX models currently on the market.


The 8.5x21 binocular is part of an optics series called Papilio, the Latin word for butterfly, because it was specifically developed to satisfy the need for close-range observation of butterflies and other insects. All members of the series also feature go-anywhere portability, making them ideal for spectator sports, travel and hiking.


Features

  • Multi-coated, aspherical optical elements and BaK4 prisms to produce a sharp, clear image
  • Long Eye Relief of 15mm
  • Rubber, shock-resistant housing that provides a firm, comfortable grip
  • Dual-axis eye-distance adjustment mechanism
  • Extendable helicoid-type eyepiece rings with pop-up mechanism
  • Diopter adjuster with click-stop lock mechanism

    These binoculars are a good value for the price. Very lightweight - only about 8 ounces. Easy to fine-tune, once you have adjusted them for your eyes. Bright, clear image. Watching the birds at my feeder, 20 feet away, is a treat. I've never seen such detail!

    overrated

    It is VERY difficult to see without black occlusion spots; It takes a great deal of adjusting of the width and eye position to not see occlusion spots.

      Very pleased with the optics. Seems to be very easy to use.
      The ability to use it for close-up magnification is a great extra benefit. Don't know how they do it.
