Pentax DCF XCF

Their multi-coated optical elements offer exceptional optical performance, and a fashionable black-finish body encased in a full-body rubber housing means excellent viewing comfort protection form dirt and bumps. The XCF range offers many of the features of more expensive binoculars, with the added benefit of exceptional value.

Top customer reviews
The design is sturdy, and the rubber coating on the main body makes it very comfortable to hold. The central focus wheel is easy to reach and operate.
The focus wheel, barrel adjustments and dioptic adjustment are smooth and have a constant resistance. However, the dioptic adjustment on the right eyepiece has narrow limits, so if you have eyes with a large (greater than 2 diopters) difference in strength between them there may be some eye strain. The rubber hoods over the eyepieces fold back to allow glasses wearers to get their eyes closer to the lens.
I could detect no twisting between the barrels, or rocking motion of the eyepieces.
I was disappointed that the case which it came with was made out of a soft plastic, and not rigid which would offer more protection against occasional knocks and bumps. The case has no strap, although the strap from the binoculars can be threaded through the sides of the case opening.
The exit pupil diameter is large, with only slight blockage from the prisms which is not noticeable unless you look for it.
The field of view is wide and bright, with no discernible distortion of the image across the lenses. I did notice some chromatic aberration which is most marked when viewing sharp edges against a bright background. However, this effect occurs from less than half the field of view from the edge of the lens.
Amazon packaged this well, and it came very quickly. I would recommend the Pentax 12x50 XCF binoculars for both astronomical and daytime use.
I bought these a while back and they were the first brand new binoculars that I had bought. I played safe by going for the 10 x 50 and I don't regret buying them.
They came in a decent inner box and the inner carry case had more padding on it than I expected. Also included were the 2 removable neck straps (binoculars and case), microfibre cloth and user manual.
The quality of the binoculars was high given the price point and they looked and felt durable and built to last.
They had a rubbery matte finish on the exterior which made them easier to grip and they were full sized and heavy.
The optics were by far their best feature as they were extremely clear and picked up light extremely well.
Although they only had a magnification of x10, all the "images" seemed to be closer to me.
They had a huge adjustment wheel on top and the "weaker eye" corrector on the right lens which can be adjusted over a wide range of settings.
On the downside, their built did make them heavy to hold at times and I could only hold them for 1-2 minutes before wanting to put them down.
The lens caps were not connected to each other or to the binoculars which was a bit annoying as they slipped off often with continued use.
I've been using these for bird watching, sports and when on excursions / holidays and to be honest they were too big and heavy for most of the those activities.
All in all though a well made binoculars with impressive optics.
