Pentax ZD ED overview

  • 1Description

With an eye for the discerning nature enthusiast, the Pentax 10x43 Z-Series ZD ED Binocular features multiple optical technologies to improve the image quality and ensure accurate colors in all weather and lighting conditions.

The image enhancement starts with hybrid aspherical lens elements and extra-low dispersion (ED) glass. The aspherical elements eliminate distortion around the edges of the lenses for clear edge-to-edge views and correct lens astigmatism that can prevent the ability to bring subjects into sharp focus. ED glass corrects for chromatic aberration to ensure colors are accurately rendered. Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission through the entire optical path to make views appear bright and crisp, especially in low light. Finally, the BAK4 roof prisms are phase corrected to enhance contrast and further correct chromatic aberration. These technologies work together to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate colors and virtually no distortion.

Complementing the optical performance is a housing that is built for a lifetime of rugged outdoor use. The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable magnesium alloy with a rubberized armor that protects against impacts while providing a slip-resistant grip. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled for fogproof performance and O-ring sealed to make the binocular submersible to as much as 3.3'. A protective external lens coating helps to repel dust, water, and oil to ensure obstruction-free viewing. For longer glassing sessions, this binocular is tripod mountable with an optional adapter.

    Pentax ZD ED reviews

    10x43 Z-Series ZD ED Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Nice Quality Very well made, rugged, nice grip on handsome rubber, sharp & bright, light & compact with a nice balance. Compares very well to my Swarovski 10 x 42 SLC (Swarovski has a wider� field of view and costs twice more but too expensive to carry it on any hike. Pentax's focus ring rotates much smoother). Compared the Pentax to Zeiss Conquest 10 x 42 and decided on Pentax. I like Pentax's carrying case but opening the of the velcro makes noise.
