New from Pentax - Pentax have announced the addition of three new models to their line of binoculars.
A new series of Pentax DCF SW roof-prism binoculars includes two models, 8 x 25 and 10 x 25, that offer a dual-hinge design that folds to be ultra-compact and are waterproof and nitrogen-filled for advanced waterproof capability in a slim, portable design. The Pentax 9 x 28 DCF LV high-end roof-prism binoculars feature a maneuverable, lightweight, waterproof and impact-resistant design with an advanced optical system that offers a bright and clear field of view.
Also announced is the Pentax UA-1 digital camera adapter that allows users to attach almost any compact digital camera to the Pentax PF-80ED or PF-65ED series of spotting scopes. The highly adjustable nature of the adapter along with the high-quality optics of the Pentax scopes makes this the perfect digiscoping tool.
