Nekonin3's review of Pentax 10x50 XCF

★★☆☆☆
Pentax 10x50 XCF

“The Pentax 10x50 XCF were the worst binoculars ever!...”

Written on: 24/08/2006 by Nekonin3 (15 reviews written)

The Pentax 10x50 XCF were the worst binoculars ever! Whenever I stared into them, my eyes started hurting! They break easily too! I had to get them mended once just because I accidentally dropped them! I seriously don't recommend these binoculars to anyone. The only thing they're good for is that they have an alright zooming range, as long as you don't look into it for too long.

A silly and unhelpful review. They aren't zoom binoculars anyway (the only supposed feature that the writer approves). No binocular is going to "hurt his eyes" the moment he looks into them: mendacious imagination at work here. What's more, if you drop any camera, binocular, telescope, even pair of spectacles, you stand a pretty good chance of breaking them.

I think this review is poorly shaped and really serves to tell you more about the owner rather than the product, and how incapable he/she is of being able to use even a simple device like a binocular. Of course dropping them could damage them. Where have you been living - in a cave? Don't blame the binocular, blame yourself for dropping them. They also are "NOT" zoom binoculars. They have one set power - 10x,, hence 10x50. The 50 is the size of the objective (front) lens in millimeters - 50mm... I use mine for up to 2 hrs at a time with no eye strain, headaches etc etc. Maybe you just need to set them up "properly"...

Eye strain usually means the collimation is out - that is, the left side isn't pointing in quite the same direction as the right side. There are ways to check this, and if the collimation is severely out then that's a fault and the seller should exchange the binoculars.

"..I had to get them mended once just because I accidentally dropped them!..." I crashed my Ford last week, I thought it was my fault! now I know to blame the manufacturer
