Awesome Picture

By

from New Bern, NC

I bought these along with some Steiner Safari Pro's to compare and choose the best of the two. The image was much crisper, brighter and easier to focus than the Steiners. I don't wear glasses, but the Pentax do have twist out eye cups for those who require it. I returned the Steiners the next day. These Pentax are on par with my Nikon 8x42 Monarch ATB as far as contrast, brightness and clarity. THe image is very good out towards the edges and no hint of barrel or pin distortion. The Steiners had easy to see pin cushion distortion. The Pentax are also waterproof to 1 meter submersion and the Steiners are only tested in rain conditions for 15 minutes and no mention of nitrogen purging per an email I received directly from the Steiner importer here in the states. Hands down, the best par of compacts I've ever owned. Thumbs up to Pentax 8x25's!!
