I've got used to not seeing Pentax photo gear in camera stores, or very little, but this doesn't stop at photo gear. I wanted to look at a pair of Pentax binoculars that have been getting excellent reviews. They are unique in the market as they can focus down to 50cm. I tried 3 stores in my area, none had any Pentax optics, nor were they familiar with the range.

In case you are interested these unique and exception binoculars are called Papilio. I bought a pair on-line and they exceeded my expectations - they are stunning at closeup viewing. I'll be taking them out with my camera regularly ...

Why oh why, do Pentax produce good kit and not get it onto the high street ?

I've had a pair of Pentax 10x21 UCF Mini binoculars for about twenty years. They are of a similar size to the Papilio. Always in my rucsac whenever I'm out walking. Wonderful optics.

So if I go in a shop and ask for a pair of
Pentax binoculars will they know the right model

Amazon have a Pentax camera for sale as well!
It's very good I've got one

Does anyone know of any Pentax dealers that will
take a barely used 10ft x 8ft England Flag in
partexchange on a pair of binoculars
