EDITOR\'S CHOICE AND GREAT BUY AWARDS
GOLDEN, CO (June 19, 2008)…PENTAX Imaging Company announced that the company has received two important editorial awards for a binocular sport optics product.
OUTDOOR LIFE magazine has awarded the PENTAX DCF LV 9x28 compact binoculars with both the 2008 EDITOR\'S CHOICE and a 2008 GREAT BUY award. This is the first time that a sport optics product has received both awards from the prestigious publication during its annual Optics Test. Featured in the June/July 2008 issue of OUTDOOR LIFE, the publication lauds the product with the following evaluation.
“…this year\'S remarkable entry from PENTAX has world-class glass at a price point most sportsmen can afford. This hand-size marvel excelled in every category, leading the way in resolution and low-light performance but also getting the highest marks in every one of the subjective evaluations, including the coveted price/value consideration. The team especially liked the positive-locking, three-position eyecups, the bright crisp image and the pleasing ergonomics of the DCF LV. Its mid-range power and object lens size are about right for a compact, but it has the eye relief (18mm) and resolution of a full-size binocular. Its compact size and polycarbonate body make this a great choice when weight and mobility-along with value- are considerations.”
