GOLDEN, Colo. –-(Ammoland.com)- PENTAX Imaging Company announced two new binocular series to the PENTAX DCF line-up plus two Gameseeker models and an entirely new line of high quality optics in the Gameseeker 30 series of rugged, full-featured rifle scopes.
Each heavy-duty DCF series roof-prism binocular, the PENTAX 9×32 DCF BC and the 9×42 DCF BR, features high-performance optics, a waterproof construction allowing fresh-water rinsing, and an ergonomic body design for a comfortable hold.
Combining outstanding optical performance and value with a compact, lightweight, carry-anywhere body, these new models may be used in a wide range of applications including nature observation, bird-watching, sports viewing, hunting and more.
The new DCF series features an open-bridge configuration for a firm, comfortable hold plus airtight, waterproof construction (equivalent to JIS Class 6) to provide worry-free observation under all weather conditions including rain and in venues on or around water. These binoculars may be rinsed clean with fresh water and submerged in water to a depth of one meter.*

The new PENTAX DCF series binoculars will be available in February 2011. The PENTAX 9×32 DCF BC will be priced at $299.00 and the 9×42 DCF BR will be $349.00.
PENTAX also introduced a new line of high quality optics in the Gameseeker 30 series of rugged, full-featured rifle scopes. Featuring an extremely durable 30mm, one piece tube design, the rugged Gameseeker 30 series is designed for use in the harshest of environments. The high quality, finger adjustable windage and elevation turrets combined with the 30mm tube provide larger windage and elevation adjustment range to ensure flexibility at any distance. The fully-multi-coated optics with PentaBright Technology are designed specifically to provide a bright, high contrast image at dawn and dusk. Each of the four new models in the series are waterproof to handle the most extreme hunting situations and nitrogen-filled to prevent any internal fogging of optical elements. Each scope includes the bullet drop compensating Precision Plex (PP) reticle.
The four models in the new line include:
- Gameseeker 30 3-10x40mm Matte (PP) ($179.00 USD)
- Gameseeker 30 4-16x50mm Matte (PP-HT-SdPA) ($189.00 USD)
- Gameseeker 30 6-24x50mm Matte (PP-HT-SdPA) ($199.00 USD)
- Gameseeker 30 8.5-32x50mm Matte (PP-HT-SdPA) ($209.00 USD)
