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.

            Comments about Pentax 9x28mm DCF LV Binoculars:

            Actually, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these binoculars. Relatively small, solid and have excellent optics. I've compared it with my 8x20 Zeiss, the Minox HG 8x33 and 10x42 SLC Svarovski, and really are great, especially if you consider its price. They are binoculars would recommend for general use and travel. They have a lens that produces images surprisingly clear and bright, and has a comfortable eye. Buy no doubt this product will not disappoint.

            Comments about Pentax 9x28mm DCF LV Binoculars:

            I use the binoculars to view the surrounding area to catch glimpses of the animal I am after. They have been excellent for this purpose. For Me they are a tool I use and carrying larger binoculars becomes cumbersome. I love them especially since they are waterproof and fogproof.

              Give me a couple of years with this binocular to fully provide helpfull insights. I have used a 7x35 Vivitar for 17 years and have found them usefull, however, they are not waterproof so that always has limited my work/opportunities. I just can not afford a $700 binocular.

              Waterproof construction, and seem to be built well. Very comfortable in the hands, and great for use with eyeglasses. Focusing is very sensitive and you have to be right on. You certianly sacrifice some clarity and light gathering with compacts, but I can carry them in my luggage or in my coat pocket easily.
