Camera Land currently not listing any Pentax Binoculars (1 Viewer)

Camera Land currently does not have any Pentax binoculars listed. They have a couple of Spotting Scopes listed and eye pieces for them and one monocular.

Eagle Optics still has a full listing of Pentax binoculars.

At Birdfair 18 months ago the Pentax stand became Ricoh instead with a new personnel and most of the binoculars got new Ricoh IDs. They were telling me about plans to reengineer the whole range and launch new Ricoh models. No sign of a stand last year, and I haven't noticed any further changes to the range in that time. Retailers don't seem to have much in the way of stock either. I don't know what's happened.

Below is the 2016 web site for Pentax binoculars, spotting scopes and accessories. It is a Ricoh-Imaging site.

The binoculars look the same but have been given new designations. Note the "Z" series; "S" series; "U" series and "A" series. The popular 8x32 seems to have been dropped.

There are 5 spotting scopes. 2 (100mm and 85mm) are designated ED. The angled ones also have versions of ED with different designations. Rather confusing.
