Features

Large 80mm Objective Lens for a Bright Image Field

Features a large objective lens with an 80mm effective aperture to produce a bright image field for easy subject spotting and accurate focusing.

High-Resolution ED Elements for a Sharp, Crisp Image

The objective lens incorporates ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to deliver a sharp, high-resolution image with minimal chromatic aberrations.

Slanted Barrel for Comfortable Viewing

The PF-80EDA lens barrel is slanted 45 degrees upwards toward the eyepiece to assure the most comfortable viewing position, even when the subject is at the top of a tree or on a steep hill.

Lightweight Magnesium-Alloy Body for Portability and Shock Resistance

Made of heavy-duty magnesium alloy to reduce weight and protect inner mechanisms, while its protective rubber housing further enhances shock resistance and durabilit.

Waterproof Construction for All-Weather Viewing

Incorporates a dust-shielding glass element in its eyepiece receptacle to assure JIS Class 6 waterproof construction, assuring worry-free viewing in the rain.

Nitrogen-Filled Body to Prevent Fogging

The PF-80ED’s body is filled with nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging caused by sudden temperature changes, providing a clear vision under any condition.

Other User-Friendly Features

  • Sight line on top of the lens barrel for easy targeting of the subject
  • Built-in lens hood to shield out excessive light and protect the objective lens surface
  • Tripod receptacle with click-stop rotation mechanism for easy twisting of the lens barrel to position the eyepiece at the most comfortable angle without changing the direction of the lens barrel (PF-80EDA)
  • Optional camera adapter (PF-CA35) to convert the PF-80EDA into a 1000mm super-telephoto lens for 35mm-format SLR cameras, and 1530mm super-telephoto lens for digital SLR cameras.
