The Pentax 8-16x21 UCF Zoom II is a multifunctional wizard! In one compact and lightweight binocular you have the power to observe with 8 to 16x magnification by simply turning the central wheel. Add to this the aspherical lens elements for the edge-to-edge sharpness, BaK4 prisms and fully multi-coated lenses to enhance brightness and contrast, and voila, you have the perfect travel companion who won’t let you miss a thing!

smc Multi-Layer Lens Coatings:
To improve the overall transmission and resolution, lens-coatings are used to reduce reflection and loss of contrast.
With the use of Super Multi Coated lenses, Pentax achieves high efficiency allowing light transmission of up to 98%!
The Pentax smc coating is a complex and sophisticated 7-layer coating that corrects light-transmission over the full light spectrum.
It is renowned throughout the optical industry.
A prism is a complex optical element necessary to correct the image to right way up,
and reduce overall length of the binocular.
In a prism, light travels through complicated angles and so the quality of the prism glass used is of significant importance.
Pentax uses exclusively high-indexed BaK4 prisms; made of very pure Barium glass.
Aspherical Eyepieces lens:
Edge to edge sharpness is a vital element to comfortable viewing. To achieve this Pentax utilise aspherical lens elements in their eyepieces.
This is a specially shaped lens design that reduces aberration to a minimum.
In their SP and ED models they use hybrid-Aspherical lens elements that have the additional advantage of superior functionality while being lightweight and compact.

Best purchase to date
Comments about Pentax 8-16x21 UCF Zoom II Binoculars:
Having carelessly dropped and damaged a pair of zoom binos which I had been using for a few years, I scoured the internet for another good pair. There was no shortage of zoom binos but the majority were really quite naff. I then came across the Pentax 8-16x21 ucf and after reading many reviews I decided to get same.I received them today and within half an hour of checking them out I knew these were the best zoom binoculars that I have ever purchased. Excellent quality through and through. The only critism that I do have is that I had to read the instructions before I could use them. (Joking)NB. Warehouse Express gets 5 Stars for service & value too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent travel companion!!
See all my reviews
As described, they are light and compact. Just need a bit of fiddling to get used to the 3 adjustment "rings" in the centre and then great to use!!
