The Pentax Papilio binoculars hidden secret is their ability to close focus. With a minimum focus distance of 50.8cm between the objective lenses and your subject, this unique binocular offers an exclusive tool to observe nature, almost acting as a high quality magnifying glass! Things like flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, animal footprints and landscape features can be viewed with ease thanks to these close focusing binoculars. Suitable for use in museums and galleries too and with a centre focus wheel, you can bring your target into focus quickly and easily.
The compact and lightweight Papilio II 8.5x21 Binocular combines aspherical optical elements and BAK4 Porro prisms to deliver edge-to-edge sharpness with a 51° apparent angle of view and offer fully multi coated optics. The wide field of view and compact design makes tracking subjects easy, perfect for bird watching.
Put simply, everyone! Whether you’re looking for a compact pair of binoculars for every day use or you need a ‘second pair’ to pull from your pocket when you spot that butterfly perched on a flower, the Pentax Papilio II will suit your needs. Supplied with a rain guard, carry case and next strap, you have everything you need to get out in the field and start using them. An exit pupil score of 2.5 means you should get plenty of light through the barrel, giving clarity to your subjects and with a generous eye relief, glasses wearers will suffer no reduction in field of view. Interpupillary and diopter adjustments means you can tweak the optic to your requirements.
The 8.5x21 offers a larger magnification, meaning you can focus on the subject slightly further away. If the binocular will primarily be used as an everyday, every situation optic, you should choose the 8.5x21 over the 6.5x21.
