3 reviews for Pentax papilio ii 6. 5×21 binoculars (grey)

  1. A photographer

    These are very nice little compacts. They’re not as difficult to use as others I’ve tried. The problem I have with compacts is the eyepiece (ocular) lenses are always small with a very narrow beam of light and these eyepieces have to be placed and held directly over the center of the eye. Higher power compacts such as the 8×21 and 10×21 models are virtually impossible for me to use since that beam of light is even narrower. The 6.5x Papilios are a bit brighter and easier on my eyes. To anyone who hesitates due to the lower magnification, don’t sweat it. A 6.5 magnification is pretty decent and it’s easier to hold steady, especially compared to 10 power models. I doubt you’ll see much difference between a 6.5x and a 7x. Their claim-to-fame is that the Papilios focus very close, necessary for butterfly and insect watching, but handy also for birding. Take it from someone who has done birding with the venerable old Leitz Trinovid 10×40 models in the past. Those binoculars had a “close” focus of about 25 feet and that can be a handicap when birding in deep woodlands. The old Trinovids were superb for open country but too claustrophobic in tight spaces. To my eyes, the optical quality of the Papilios is just fine. They’re sharp with good contrast and a pleasing color rendition. These binoculars are lightweight, perhaps a bit too lightly built. They appear to be all plastic construction with a rubbery gripping surface that allows good handling. They are small binoculars so that means there’s not that many places to put your fingers. Those with large hands might find them difficult to manipulate until they adjust to this small size. I was a little surprised at how loose they are. The focus knob and the body hinge are quite loose and a little bit too easy to adjust, in my opinion. I’d like these controls to be stiffer so you don’t inadvertently change the settings. Eye relief is just enough for me as an eyeglasses wearer but there’s no eye relief to spare. Overall, nice binoculars but I wouldn’t want them to be my only binos. They’re not good for low light and they probably won’t handle the banging around most binoculars get during normal use. For those uses you really should have standard size binoculars in your choice of magnification, either porro prism or roof prism. The Papilios are good for travel, to keep in your vehicle or to back up the main binocular. As a compact, I really like them. Read more

    This is a decent though not spectacular binocular in the traditional sense. But the close focus capability of 18″ absolutely IS spectacular! This “II” version has fully multi-coated optics and gives an impressive image for such a small device. It’s decent for back yard birding and such. Not quite as nice as our high quality 10×42 but only in the sense it doesn’t magnify quite as much and is not quite as bright in low light conditions. After comparing, I would be perfectly happy with the Papilio as my only binocular for what we use them for. The eye relief is quite comfortable with or without glasses and it has zero tendency to black-out while looking at the periphery. It also has a wide sweet spot. The small size and light weight are great. Where this thing completely rules is viewing small items close up, it’s much like having a hand held stereo microscope that works at a distance! It is the absolutely perfect tool for looking at butterflies, dragonflies, all sorts of bugs and flower blooms, and things like lighted mineral sample displays at museums and such. It is an amazing piece of kit and in IMO, in the very top echelon of “bang for the buck”. I will probably have to buy another so we can share them during family outings to our city’s zoo and walk in live butterfly display. IMO the 6.5x version is the better choice due to less shaking, brighter view and wider field. But that is just my preference and others like the 8.5x a little better. I do wish they made it with an objective cover, though slipping it in the included belt-loop case suffices. I also wish the case was a bit larger so the bino would fit in the case while the eye-cups are fully extended. Read more

    I LOVE these binoculars. I didn’t expect them to be all that good considering the size, but I was blown away by their performance. They’re bright, incredibly sharp, and very compact and versatile. I went with the 6.5x over the 8.5x as I wanted the brighter steadier image and wider FOV. Most reviews I’ve seen have also recommend the 6.5x as the more well rounded pair. The close focus is amazing. It’s like having a handheld microscope you can point and use wherever you want. You will see new details on things that are impossible to see with the naked eye (tiny hairs on a spiders leg, the sub-pixels on a LCD screen, etc). The binoculars are worth it for the close focus alone. It comes with a compact form-fitting leather case and a quick disconnecting neck strap. I also love that they included a tripod socket on the bottom. Ive tested that feature, and the solid image from the tripod drastically increases the amount of detail you can see. I have several pairs of more expensive binoculars, but I think If I could only own one pair it would be these Pentax Papilios. Read more
