S-series

The S-series consists of both roof and porro prism models with objective lenses > 40mm so personal preferences are immediately defined. In addition to the newly developed light transmission coatings, waterproof porro prism models also boast the hydrophobic coating, thereby allowing for contrast-rich, bright viewing under rough outdoor conditions.

These binoculars meet the viewer's traditional demand for 8x magnification. It has all the quality features found in the entire roof prism range PENTAX has on offer: fully multi-coated lenses, inner focusing, water and dust proof, nitrogen-purged and phase correction coatings on the BaK4 prisms. The new Enhanced light transmission coating creates crystal sharp images. The polycarbonate housing makes the whole package a full-size light-weight. It also offers 4-stop, helicoid eyecups. When weight is a critical factor for you, then these binoculars are the perfect reason to upgrade to full size.

New Fully-multi-coated optics

Fully multi-coated lenses serve the essential purpose of maximizing the amount of light passing through a lens, thereby prevent flare and ghosting from interfering with your view. PENTAX applies multiple layers of coatings to every surface of every element and prism in the full Sport Optics line-up. These fully-multi-coated optics assure the maximum light transmission resulting in a clear, crisp view of the world.

New Enhanced Light Transmission Coatings

PENTAX binoculars take quality optics to the next level by applying a new, optimized film-deposition technology on lens and prism surfaces resulting in increased light transmission which creates bright images with accurate color rendition

Protective Lens Coating

All optical surfaces are delicate and must be handled with care to prevent scratching. To add to the durability of the Z- and S-series Water Proof binoculars*, PENTAX has added a protective, nano technology coating that helps deflect water, oil, dust and dirt. This allows PENTAX binoculars to withstand the harshest viewing conditions.

Inner Focus Optics Design

This sophisticated optical design is critical to low-maintenance and long life guarantee. Exposure to airbourne particles and moisture is avoided, thereby ensuring that no outside influences can penetrate the housing and disrupt functionality.

Nitrogen purged

Nitrogen is a chemical element and a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. It contains very little humidity and is therefore used to “purge” binoculars and spotting scopes of the high humidity air that is part of our environment. Due to the low humidity factor, nitrogen prevents condensation from forming on the internal lenses of optical instruments during phases of rapid temperature change. Furthermore, because nitrogen is purged into the optical instrument at slightly above atmospheric pressure, dust and other miniscule particles are prevented from entering the housing.

Long eye relief design

The long eye relief offered in all PENTAX Sport Optics allows the viewer to see the entire field of view clearly and effortlessly. This is especially beneficial to eyeglass wearers, and allows viewing for extended periods of time without added eye strain.

Other Features

Helicoid three-stop eyepiece rings that permit fi ne adjustment for maximum viewing comfort.
Exterior rubber coating that provides the binoculars with superb resistance to shocks and impacts.
