Get these binoculars at half the price of European models but with the same quality. Pentax Binocular 8 X 43 DCF SP ensures quality view with a combination of 43mm objective lens with 8x magnification and 6.3° angle of view. Like the other DCF series, it is built to withstand and last. How? It is made possible by the teamwork of nitrogen-filled magnesium alloy waterproof (JIS Class 6) and full-body rubber housing, enabling the binoculars to be submerged up to 1 meter underwater without suffering damage and withstand almost any type of weather and climate. This amount of remarkable features is matched by features for comfort, namely, a helicoid eyepiece ring with four stops for optimum comfort, a diopter adjustment with lock mechanism for vision correction, and a combination of long eye relief and overall lightweight design to decrease fatigue to a minimum. Unlike other binoculars, you can use this pair to view nearby spots because of its extra-short minimum focusing distance. What makes this more powerful that it already is is its inner focus optical design that integrates hybrid aspherical eyepiece lenses to minimize aberration, high resolution phase-coated roof prisms to enhance light transmission, hydrophobic coating on exposed objective and eyepiece lenses to decrease the effects of moisture, and multi-coated optical elements to avoid ultraviolet rays. If you are up to something exciting and adventurous, no matter what kind of weather or location conditions you may encounter, then you should do yourself a favor and try Pentax Binocular 8 X 43 DCF SP.
Product Features in Detail
All optical elements within every PENTAX product are treated with our time-proven multi-layer coating which not only improves light transmission to deliver bright, high contrast images without flare, but also reduces eye fatigue even during extended observation.
Every PENTAX Sport Optics instrument is built to the highest of standards using some of the toughest materials available. PENTAX binoculars and spotting scopes are encased in highly durable rubber-armored housings, which are designed to protect the optical mechanisms inside from shock and damage, while making them easier to hold. PENTAX waterproof products are fully sealed and feature airtight construction. They are purged with laboratory grade nitrogen to provide a fog proof view in the harshest weather conditions, and extreme temperatures.*
*Not designed for underwater use.
Long Eye Relief
The long eye relief offered in all PENTAX Sport Optics allows the viewer to see the entire field of view clearly and effortlessly. This is especially beneficial to eyeglass wearers, and allows viewing for extended periods of time without added eye strain.
High-Refraction BaK4 Glass Prism
Due to its outstanding refraction index, the BaK4 glass prism is highly acclaimed for its perfectly round exit pupil and clear, unvignetted image.
Aspherical Optical Elements
The PENTAX aspherical optical elements greatly improve image brightness and sharpness, while minimizing disturbing distortions.
High-Resolution Phase Coating
The roof prisms of all DCF series models are specially treated with high-resolution phase coating. Previously incorporated only in the most expensive models, this special process cancels the phase difference created on the wave front of light passing through a roof prism, thus producing sharp, high-contrast images with much improved resolution.
Inner-Focus Optical Design
Incorporated in all DCF series models, plus the UCF and PCF WP II models, this sophisticated optical design is ideal for waterproof models that require a fully airtight body construction. It also contributes to a considerable reduction in size and weight and improves overall balance by minimizing weight shift during focusing.
Functional, Maneuverable Body Design
The body and optical mechanism of PENTAX binoculars and spotting scopes are computer-designed to ensure the easiest handling possible and minimize overall size and weight, without sacrificing optical performance.
