Vortex Talon HD va Viper HD

other than the physical characterists;
what's the difference between the Vortex Viper HD and the Talon HD and is there $120 difference in optics?

Not going to be much, if any difference. Normally, an open-bridge design like the Talon will be more expensive than conventional binocular like the Viper, but the difference in price, here, is largely a matter of the Viper being made in Japan and the Talon in China. If you like the open bridge design and don't mind something made in China (some people are touchy about this), by all means go with the Talon.
