I just picked up 2 Pentax models from a Craigslist ad at a reasonable price: a 10x42 DCF WP marked 'phase coating' and made in Japan. also a 10x50 PCF V made in China. these appear to be models 10 or more years old. The 10x42 has a somewhat discolored body but the optics on both look pretty good.
Any anyone supply more info on these?
THanks

Also, I'll need caps and straps for these. Recommendations?

There's a little bit of information on these binoculars in the 433+ Bino Reviews section.

Perhaps you've already seen what's there. :shrug:

For end caps:

Agena has helpful end-cap diagrams.

For rainguards, perhaps Eagle Optics Binocular Accessories
