Found a great deal ($75) on some  Pentax 20x50 (2.5-o) PCF Binoculars -

 

Question is - should I get them?  I realize they probably aren't the greatest thing for hunting (weight, FOV, shakiness) but what about for boat use?  Daylight observation?  Maybe even at the range for spotting use?

 

Is Pentax nice as far as optical quality?

 

These were bought at Cabellas 11 years ago for like $300, and the person wants $75 for them -

 

What do you think?

Pentax for $ 75.00 dollars, I don't think you can go wrong. As long as every thing works on it!! I would definitely consider them!!!!!!

So, am I correct in assuming that the Pentax binocs have good optical clarity and are tough customers?  I have some 10x binocs, and will be getting some good 8.5x birding ones, but 20x just sounds so . . . . MAGnificent

 

Just want to make sure I don't get duds.

Well, it is from a person I know on a gun msg board on the internet, but hell, at that price, I could always re-sell it.
