Description

Winner of both the Editors Choice and Great Buy Awards from Outdoor Life Magazine! 

 

Its rare that a single product garners both the Great Buy and Editor's Choice honors, but this year's remarkable entry from Pentax has world-class glass at a price point most sportsmen can afford.  This hand-size marvel excelled in every category, leading the way in resolution and low-light performance but also getting the highest marks in every one of the subjective considerations.  The team especially liked the positive-locking, three-position eyecups, the bright, crisp image and the pleasing ergonomics of the DCF LV.  Its mid-range power and objective lens size are about right for a compact, but it has the eye relief (18mm) and resolution of a full-size binocular.  Its compact size and polycarbonate body make this a great choice when weight and mobility-along with value- are considerations.

 

TESTERS COMMENTS:

  • Great range of tack-sharp focusing
  • Feels great in the hand
  • Exceptionally good eyecups
  • A little bulky for a compact
  • Image has nice contrast
  • Definitive eyecup-adjustment intervals
  • Brightness of image comparable to that of a full size

 

Available in 9x28 magnification, the Pentax DCF LV binoculars feature a durable, lightweight, compact body.  With high resolution phase-coated and super-reflective coated roof prisms for high contrast images, the nitrogen-filled waterproof (JIS Class 6) construction allows these binoculars to be used in the most extreme weather conditions and submerged to 3.3 feet.  The inner-focus optical design adds durability and the helicoid eyepiece rings offer comfortable eye relief.  Fully multi-coated lenses increase light transmission and color quality while rubber covered exterior provides a sure grip and protects the internal mechanisms.  All Pentax binoculars offer a Worry Free Warranty.

 

  • Extremely durrable, lightweight, compact body makes these binoculars ideal for difficult conditions
  • High-resolution phase-coated and super-reflective coated roof prisms provide high contrast images
  • Nitrogen-filled waterproof (JIS Class 6) constrution allow these binoculars to be used in the most extreme weather conditions and be submerged to 1 meter
  • Inner-focus optical design adds to the durability

      Comments about Pentax 9x28mm DCF LV Binoculars:

      Binos are very nice and Hayneedle was a great company to order from. Product arrived promptly as promised. Only problem is that for a compact bino these are too large and heavy. Other than that they work great, clear viewing, comfortable. I use them for our frequent African safari trips and animal viewing.
