Pentax 70532 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring premium optical components, a wide 60° field of a view, and generous 18mm eye relief for comfortable glassing, the compact SMC XF 12mm Wide Angle Eyepiece is designed for use with Pentax 65mm, 80mm, and 100mm spotting scopes. This 12mm fixed focal length eyepiece yields 52x magnification with the PF-100ED, 43x with the PF-80EDA, 42x with the PF-80ED, and 32.5x with the PF-65EDA II and PF-65ED II. Extra-low dispersion lanthanum glass elements provide a balanced image with minimal aberrations, while fully multi-coated air-to-glass surfaces and partially coated laminated surfaces avoid reflection for optimal light transmission. A light-shielding diaphragm further reduces internal reflections for a bright, high-contrast image.

The eyepiece is constructed to Japanese Industrial Standard Class 4 for water resistance. It is not to be used underwater, but will easily withstand light rain or dew. Its diameter is the American standard of 1.25", so it can be used in other scopes or telescope focusers, and it offers a 30.5mm adapter mounting thread under the removable eyecup.

    Pentax 70532 reviews

    SMC XF12 12mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great eyepiece for PF65 EDA ii I bought this eyepiece after returning an XW 14mm. I prefer the ease of viewing, more manageable field of view, natural-sized eye lens, and equal sharpness and contrast (to my eye) of the XF12. The field is wide enough so that the field stop is out in the periphery, so if there is any loss of image quality at the edge, I'm unable to notice when using it. I own two pairs of Nikon Premier LX bins, so am used to a nice view. The eye lens is fairly deep-set, so the eye relief is just adequate with my glasses (glasses need to be touching the eye cup). Otherwise couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance! Purchased for use with my Takahashi APO telescope. Build quality is excellent. Field stop is razor sharp. Great field of view. Little lateral color, no ghosting or lens flare, high contrast and sharp image to the edge of field. While primarily designed for use with Pentax spotting scopes. It works great in fast f-ratio telescopes <= f/6. Great price, too, for an eyepiece of this quality.
