As a ornithologist I like to have binoculars all over the place , in balcony , living room , bedroom in the car and garage and I hiding one old porro prism Pentax bino even in the garden just in case ...., I have Pentaxes PCF binoculars even in panniers on my bicycles so I can miss and observe any birds at any time when in cycle tour .... I use Pentax product long time and because binocular harness is repairman's enemy I never ever had any problem . I own to many PCF 7 x 35 , 8 x 42 , 10 x 50 . 20 x 50 is good enough when you are lazy when hot weather to carry spotting scope and tripod , small rugged 10 x 28 MP fit nicely to any packet of my birding west or jacket so I have binocular with me even when on city , I like 8 x 42 DCF SP because perform well even in bad weather when watching and tracking sea birds in flight , PCF 7 x 50 porro prism is perfect for me when birding in the forest , 10 x 50 DCF ED outperform Swarovsky and I can say same about all the spotting scopes if I compare my spotting scope Pentax 100 ED - Once it permit me to observe nightjars and owls at nights in flight - all you need is patience , little luck , stars and moon ... Water proof binocular Pentax 10 x 50 DCF SP is well priced and it is superior performance binocular for rear field for birder who do not afford Leica or top of the line Nikon , it is just little on heavy side , well build and balanced , focusing knob is more then first class , optics is sharp there is no noticeble distortion - good enough for birds detail even when light condition deteriated , I had numerous oportunity compare this bino on the field when on bird counts and it outperform more expensive binoculars . All Pentax DCF SP is eazy to use , long eye relieve give you more viewing comfort , it is eazy to clean , I use Pentax or Optex cleaning cloth only . For all rugged Pentax DCF SP is best use when birding in bad weather around the ocean , this binocular takes a lots of abuse , dust , rain , salty sprey , sub zero temperature and heat , it was even submerged in sea when in kayaking trip in Arctic .... Pentax is not destructable and have good warranty but best warranty if you must abuse binocular is its durability . Only the complain I hear was 5 degree angle so traking some fast sea or shore birds can be for novice birder little challenge .

The Pentax DCF SP are very high quality roof prism binoculars with magnesium housings coated with rubber armour. The phase coatings used on the roof prisms eliminate interference and the fully multi-coated lenses reduce reflections even with very high glare viewing. Edge to edge image sharpness allows for use in astronomy, although anything above the 12X model should probably be used with a tripod. The 8X and 10X can be hand-held even for astronomy. Very high quality optics in an affordable package.
