Need a pair of binoculars that are light enough to take anywhere, yet versatile enough to deliver reliable performance whether you're in wet or dry conditions?
The Pentax 8.5 x 21 Papilio Binoculars might just be the one for you. A powerful 8.5X magnification brings objects 8.5 times closer than your naked eyes can see. The large 21mm objective lenses gather more light, making a brighter image. At a mere 10.2 ounces, these versatile binoculars are suitable for backpacking, birding, sports events, stargazing, and pretty much any activity you might reasonably want binoculars for.
Only you can decide if these are for you.
Excellent Close-up Capability The Pextax 8.5 x 21 Papilio Porro Prism Binocular features the 8.5X magnification capability for extreme close-up viewing of insects, birds, artwork or any other object at close ranges.
Fully Multi-Coated Lens with PentaBright Technology The Pextax 8.5 x 21 Papilio Porro Prism Binocular features high-quality optics with multi-coating and UV ray protection to minimize glares and reflections and protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
High-index BaK-4 Prisms The Pextax 8.5 x 21 Papilio Porro Prism Binocular uses high-index BaK-4 prisms for ultra bright, crisp images from edge to edge.
CLOSE Mechanism With the Pentax’s Convergent Lens Optical System Engineering (CLOSE) mechanism, this binocular automatically slides the left and right objective lenses toward the center when the focus is fixed at a short distance, so the binocular is perfect for close-range viewing.
This review is from: PENTAX 8.5 x 21 Papilio Binoculars
Pros: Light, small size Optical quality is pretty good Close focal distance (0.5m)
Cons: Not really. I know the limitations before making the decision
If you are in distant/tiny objects such as flying birds, you may want a different scope.
Other Thoughts: Handy gadget
