    I've been thrilled with these binoculars. Really glad I got the Pentax. The images are so crisp, so clear, so bright. They are a great size for both birding and stargazing. They gather enough light to enjoy the stars, and they focus in very close up for birding and butterflies. The perfect size imo, light weight too. No problems holding it still, hardly any shaking with these for me.

    Very well made, great coatings, precise focusing, you name it. The right diopter works well, nice indents to really get it where you want it. The eye relief is fine, the twist out eyecups work well, just a really well made pair. They're the best pair I've ever used, next to my father's 7x50 Adlerblicks.

    The strap is usable, the case is well made. The quality of these binoculars is truly outstanding. Highly recommended.

    I use them for birding. Focus wheel is still stiff to move. Case doesn't have strap so while using binoculars, I have to find a place for the case and poor fitting lens caps. I wear glasses and that doesn't help focusing.

      I've been playing with them ever since I took them out of the box. The first day I got them, I saw six wood storks and three grey herons. And that was before I even got out of my truck when I got home. Very pleased.

        I am more than pleased with the quality of these binoculars! I mostly use them for bird watching and they are great for that. My only complaint is that the end caps are too big and slip off very easily.

        Comments about Pentax 8x40mm PCF WP II Binoculars:

        I got these binoculars to replace an older pair that had been dropped a few to many times by my kids. Since I've gotten these, I've really rediscoved just how important it is to have a really good pair of binoculars. We do a lot of hiking, birding and wild life viewing. These binoculars are perfect. They focus quickly, great for distance and up close viewing. I really like that they're waterproof - no more fogging (I didn't realize what a benifit that was going to be). I looked a lot of binoculars and it came down to the Pentax and the Nikons. Both were excellent but at the end of the day, Pentax had the better glass and was noticably lighter, and just a superior product.

        Had old pair of similar style which we purchased about 7 years ago. They were stolen. We were thinking we would upgrade but after much research decided to get these. Very good quality. Good field glasses in sense that they are waterproof and can take a beating. They are a bit heavy however. But I love Pentax. Good quality for low price

[...] a great transaction all around.
