Excellent lightweight general purpose binoculars,
This review is from: Pentax 10x25 UCF X II Binoculars (Electronics)
These are lightweight and small. The optics have good edge to edge clarity, no discernable distortion or fringing, good colour rendering and reasonable light gathering power. 10x magnification is right for me but others might prefer the slightly better light gathering and wider field of view of 8x.
They feel nice in the hands (mine are small) and can be used one handed. Focussing is smooth and precise. I like the pop in and out right eye focussing knob which is tucked out of harm's way when not in use. The depth of field is small, so viewing obects at varying distances requires refocussing. They focus down to about 1.5 metres. The case is soft, lightweight plastic, tough but doesn't give much protection.
If you have a specialist requirement for binoculars you'll look elsewhere, but otherwise these are excellent for the general user.
