Product Highlights
  • Waterproof & Fogproof
  • Roof Prism
  • 6.5° Angle of View

The Pentax 8x36 DCF NV binocular borrows many cues from the flagship DCF ED lineup, with a similar focusing dial and eyecup design, and does so with more approachable pricing.

The body's waterproof and fogproof, and made from a fiber-reinforced polycarbonate.  Even at the top of the lines, manufacturers are moving towards fiber-reinforced body designs because they've quickly proved durable, able to retain their optical alignment, but significantly lighter than a metal alloy chassis.

The 8x36 DCF NV gives a combination of phase-corrected roof prisms, fully multicoated optics, and a modern waterproof housing with most of the brightness and viewing comfort of the larger and more costly designs.  As the 8x model of the 36mm DCF NV series, it offers a wider viewing field and an easier time of hand holding than its 10x36 sibling-if you're planning on viewing from water it is the only choice.

      Comments about Pentax 8x36 DCF NV Binocular:

      If you are looking for a super nice pair of binoculars in the price range of $ you have just found them! I have been using my Pentax 8x36 and I can say the binos are excellent. In fact I believe that to get something better you'd have to spend $300. Optical performance is exceptional. The sharpness and clarity are very high indeed. They are very well made and joy to use. 5 stars and my highest recommendation.

        Comments about Pentax 8x36 DCF NV Binocular:

        I'm a casual birder and occasionally take binoculars to musical events if I can't get great seats. These seem to have great visuals, but are a little larger and heavier than I hoped for. On the other hand, I wanted a pair with this strength, so I suppose the size comes with the territory.
