The Pentax Papilio binocular is a refreshing surprize to the compact / travel size class. It has the wonderful optics that Pentax is known for as well as all the standard magnification and field of view for a perfect travel companion, but what is exciting is its close range focusing. The close up focus range is a foot and a half. That’s amazing.
When your through checking out the vista, point them at your feet and discover a whole new world as well as a sudden urge to buy new shoes. It’s Disney’sA Bug’s Life brought to life. No need to drive across the country to see amazing things; just walk out in the backyard and check out what you’ve been missing. This is a binocular for every weekend and fun with school age kids. I highly recommend this one.
