I have owned my PF80-ed for over ten years and it has turned out to be a terrific purchase. The scope body includes excellent ED glass, but the real selling point is the eyepieces. The 8mm-24mm zoom (20x-60x) is excellent, particularly if one has limited expectations for viewing at over 45x or so.
I was able to look thru one of these at a shooting match this spring, and that was it-decision made. you really need a very steady tri-pod if using the 20-60 eyepiece but it is very clear even at max when steady.
I have had this product for over a decade. Once I bought this spotting scope, I had no more desire to upgrade. I use mine with the Pentax SMC 8mm to 24mm zoom eyepiece, so the combination is 20X to 60X. I find the 60X setting to be incredible, especially for studying targets at 100 yards.
Bought it with a fix focus Pentax SMC XF 12mm eyepiece. All Pentax scopes use standard 1.25 eyepieces. It has a 82mm thread for filters. Basically a link between photo lenses and astronomy equipment. You can't go wrong with Pentax.
The Pentax PF80 Ed is a high performance spotting scope with excellent resolution and edge to edge sharpness at all magnification settings. When compared to other spotters costing significantly more money the Pentax was at least as clear and bright and the best value in the 80mm class.
Viewing and photographing wildlife. Easy to set-up and case is used as a protective cover even when viewing. Excellent clarity and field of view.
Purchased this scope based on reviews that I had read online on birding and astronomy sites, and on customer reviews. Also purchased Pentax XW 14mm eye piece. Thought it would be an awesome combination for watching wildlife. Image was dull and difficult to view even with the 20mm eye relief.
