The PENTAX VD 4X20 WP are multi-featured binoculars with a unique three-in-one design. As conventional binoculars, they deliver a solid, magnified view of the subject. In addition, they feature the world’s first detachable design*, which allows the user to separate the two barrels in order to use them independently or jointly. Separating the barrels lets the PENTAX VD 4X20 WP function as two independent monoculars that can be shared by two observers. Or, by connecting the barrels inline, it functions as a high-power telescope with 16-times magnification.
Case and strap included
The left and right barrels separate from the center, and each can be used as an individual monocular. Enjoy gazing at far-off scenery together to share the same sense of excitement.
Hold the lens barrels with both hands and pull to the sides to detach the binoculars in a single montion.
When going out with your family, this design lets you and your child look at the same objects nurturing your child's curiosity.
Experience a sense of excitement with a special someone to create lasting memories.
Share amazing moments with friends while traveling, concerts and sporting events to make your times more fun.
Enjoy in three ways that suit your purpose and the scene (binoculars, monoculars, telescope). All of these are in this single item. Three high-performance three-in-one binoculars are only possible with an optical manufacturer.
The 4X magnification is convenient for watching stage performance, concerts, and sporting events. They feature the right field of view for scenes with movement and for situations where you want to view the entire scenes.
This option is perfect for viewing museum exhibits up close or sharing a scene with someone else.

Full multi-coating is used on the surface of all lenses and prisms to prevent the reflection of unwanted light. Also, phase-coated roof-prisms and super-high-reflection dielectric multi-layer coating on the auxiliary prism provides dramatic improvements on light transmission, reducing flare and ghosting, and delivering bright, sharp, high-contrast optical performance.
