Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 Review
The Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 boasts a unique feature: the ability to focus on objects only 18 inches away. Users and experts are delighted, using words like "amazing" and "astonishing" in Pentax Papilio 8.5x21reviews to describe the detail and clarity of images. A Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 review by an expert at Birdwatching.com, raves about the excellent magnification of nature's wonders, like butterflies and plants. The Pentax Papilio 8.5x21review says these binoculars are like a long-distance microscope, giving you a sharply detailed view of the internal structure of a flower or the scales on a butterfly wing. Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 reviews on Amazon are equally glowing, with some nature enthusiasts reporting they carry these as back-up to catch opportunistic up-close views and other users saying these binoculars do double duty for distance viewing and close-in observation. But it's the close-in focus that has users hooked, and one Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 review on Amazon notes the Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 is a handy aid for close-up photography. It's also a good companion on a field trip to a science or natural history museum. With most binoculars, you can only look through one eye when you reach the limit of the close-up focus. But the left and right eye pieces of the Pentax Papilio 8.5x21 move in together as you adjust the focus, which lets you look through both eyes as you reach the 18-inch limit. The high magnification of 8.5 and a field of view of 315 feet at 1,000 yards add to the appeal of these binoculars. They also sport a rubber exterior and weigh 10.2 ounces. Although the Pentax Papilio 8.5x21is priced beyond the Cheapism niche, this is a set of binoculars worth considering if that ultra-fine detail is too important to miss.
