My little Papilio II 6.5x21 has to be the most fun binocular I own. Pentax really did bino lovers a favor by designing it. Besides enjoying VERY close-up views of just about anything (especially insects), I can look at birds/nature and even the moon. An extremely versatile and handy instrument to carry everywhere. I'm wondering if I should add the 8.5x to my collection. A little more magnification might be helpful in certain situations. Does anyone prefer the 8.5 or have both of these little binos? If you do, I'd appreciate your comments.
By the way, for those who don't have a Papilio...join the fun. I doubt if you'll be disappointed.
