Pentax AD WP overview

  • 1Description

Designed for the nature enthusiast who wants to pack light without sacrificing image quality, the Pentax 8x25 A-Series AD WP Compact Binocular delivers bright, clear images while weighing in at just 10.6 ounces. Their BAK4 roof prisms are phase corrected to improve image contrast and enhance color rendition. All of the optics are anti-reflection and fully multi-coated to maximize light transmission, producing the brightest views possible.

An asymmetrical hinge design enables the binocular to be folded up much smaller than typical center-hinged optics. In order to cut weight, the housing is made of corrosion- and impact-resistant fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate polymer. The material is also temperature resistant, allowing for its use in extreme climates while reducing expansion and contraction that wide temperature swings can cause (and which can make the optical components move out of collimation over time). Its optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, making them submersible to 3.3' as well as fogproof in all weather conditions.

Pentax AD WP reviews

8x25 A-Series AD WP Compact Binocular is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too cute and tiny not to purchase Best eye relief in a compact I've ever seen. Sharpness is about a B- -- but at $90 and at such a super fold-up-able small size, they make you feel binocularly calm, just knowing they're in the glove compartment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little compacts Quite nice optics for low cost compact binoculars. Good focusing mechanism. There are no objective lens covers. Overall I am pleased with them though. Brett

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright for their size Much brighter - than a lighter and smaller pair I bought - with a very noticeable wider circle which seems to make focusing etc. easier. I can really tell the difference when tried to read id signs on the trees at the arboretum from a distance. It is also easier to find a bird, though I have brought an old bulky camera (FZ200) that zooms more (24x) that works even better, esp. since when I get home I have a picture I can share and enlarge. I like using them without glasses best, but I find I have to hold them slightly away from the eyes, or they blackout (eyelashes?). Sometimes I have the same problem with glasses on but they can't be causing my eyelashes to fold into the view? I have "senior" eyes so this might be why I appreciate the brighter binoculars - not sure and I haven't owned many binoculars from which to judge these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Confirms All Previous Reviews I did a lot of research looking for a halfway decent compact, waterproof set of binocs that weren't too expensive. All reviews led to this product but I had a hard time tracking them down (they were discontinued). Ordered from Amazon and waited a month before being told they were out of stock. B&H really came through for me. They are exactly what I wanted, work well enough. I am very happy.
