Question about Pentax PCF WP II (8x40) Binocular

1 Answer

PENTAX 8X40 PCF WP II BINOCULARS: The right eyepiece covers (2) fall off and on now very easily. The adjusting wheel does not control the rough focus of the right eyepiece. There are 2 small holes in the exposed eyepiece where there might have been some 'pins'. (My guess.) When I hold a pin in the hole the central control wheel does move the right lens and adjusts the rough focus.

The right lens is also controlled (overridden) by the diopter focus ring. may take both pins to repair.

I have a pair of pentax 10x42 DCF HRc binoculars that will not focus properly througn the right eyepiece. Just wondering if this is a common problem and is it worhtwhile getting repaired


The binos will rack focus both at the same distance, you need to rack focus left side to distant image with left eye only, then turn diopter focus to focus right eyepiece. Diopter focus is thinner wheel behind focus wheel

Do you sell eyepiece covers for a pair of 8x40 DPS I Olympus Binoculars? Or can you tell me where I can get them? Thanks, Ted


Hi Ted,
If you let me know the exact diameter of the eyepiece (outside edge to outside edge) I am sure I will have some in stock for you.

Stiff focus wheel


The number one rule is to never use oil on a binocular!!
I suspect that the multistart thread on the focus arm carrier, which is internal, has become gunged up. This is not an easy repair for a beginner. The rubber has to be removed from the body of the binocular before you can even start to take them apart to determine the fault.
Like any bearing or gear system, the part would have to be cleaned with a degreaser, then reassembled with new lubricant.

I have to hold my 8 x 42 bioncuklars about 2 inches from my eyes to see thru them


Hi,

Here are some instructions for setting up binoculars for your own eyestrength..

This is more common than you would think.. Any good binocular will be able to do this and the reason is to allow you to adjust them for the difference in strenght between your two eyes. I wear glasses myself and sometimes contact lenses so it's good to be able to quickly adjust them.

1. turn the binoculars over so you are looking at the underside.
2. on the eyepieces can you see on one eye(usually the right eye) a little plus - minus marking. The eyepiece should be able to rotate a little to each side of this marking.
3. Set the rotating eyepiece to the middle setting.
4. Look through the binoculars as normal and bring the two sides together until you form the two circles that you see into one.
5. Pick an object app 10 meters away.
6 Presuming that the adjustable eyepiece is on the right hand side then close your right eye, look at the middle distance object you chose with your left eye and use the central focusing knob/wheel in the middle to bring your left eyepiece into focus.
7. Now, close your left eye and adjust the rotating right hand eyepiece while looking at the same object until your right eyepiece is in focus.
8. The binoculars should now be set for the differences in strenght of your eyes and you can use the middle focus control as normal.

Most binoculars have a soft rubber eyepiece that can be folded back for people who wear glasses but I, like most people I know who wear glasses, find it horribly uncomfortable.

This method allows you to set them for yourself and if someone else uses your binoculars you can quickly reset them for you.

Hope this helps...


- Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to mention.. This set up is so you can use them without wearing your glasses.. Much more comfortable!!

How to focus my Zeiss 10x40B TP binoculars


Your binoculars are known as the Zeiss Classic or what was once known as the Dialyt. They focus differently from the usual binoculars like those mentioned. The rear wheel is to focus both binocular barrels while using them. The front focus wheel is adjust the right eyepiece to suit your right eye. Binocular manufacturers take into account each eye is slightly different. To focus the Dialyt...First close your right eye and turn the rear wheel until the image is sharp in the left barrel. Leave the focus wheel alone. Now close left eye and adjust the front wheel until the image is sharp for your right eye. The image should now be clear and in focus for both eyes. It should not be needed to use the front wheel from now on. The rear wheel is what you will use to change the focus from near to far objects.
