AD 8x36 WP & 8x36 DCF NV

Evening all,

Does anyone have any long term experience with either of these bins?

On paper and visually they appear to be the same binos, I'm assuming renamed after the Ricoh take over.

What is their durability like?

I remember being quite fond of Pentax binos when I worked in photographic retail in around '03. They always seemed well made with quite tight tolerances and good finish. Is this still the case?

Thanks in advance

I own a pair of the dcf 8x36s. I can tell you they are very very well made--very smooth focus, eyecups with no play. Narrow FOV--pretty sharp though.

I cannot speak on the newer version. I do like the Pentax line--expensive though.
