Postby Hoobsgal on Sun Nov 27, 2005 3:37 pm

Looking to purchase a general purpose viewing/boating/hiking binoc--in the 100$ range
I like these three Pentax models--any help in choosing one ove the others???
Pentax 8x25 UCF WP Series waterproof compact
Penatx 8x40 XCF
Pentax UCF X 11 62211

Any help appreciated :?

The 8x25WP and the 8x25 UCF X II are both compacts. Both are excellent buys, given the prices, but the waterpoof feature of the WP is a definite plus.

The 8x40 is a full size bino. Performance and ease of use will be slightly better, but at the expense of portability.
