Binoculars. Diamondback 8x42

by Mabt, from United States, FL Written on March 3, 2015
These seem a nice binocular for the price. Good size, not heavy. Comfortable grip. Just starting birding and they seem a good choice for me. It was annoying that the comfort strap (harness style) that I bought for them did not fit as per the instructions. I had to jury rig it to attach as the nylon fitting would not fit through the slot. It was a Vortex harness so I assumed wrongly that it would fit these Vortx bins. I have already lost the lens caps. Probably as a result of the makeshift attaching of the harness. The binoculars them self however are living up to expectation....

Vortex Diamondback

by Mike, from United States, MT Written on February 20, 2015
Extremely clear view. Easy to focus. Binoculars now live in car for instant access. Hard case protects binoculars for damage in car. Excellent buy for the price. I use them exclusive for wildlife viewing and with/without glasses I have no issues in getting a clear view....
Pros:
  • Very solid and secure
  • Very well made
  • hard case
Cons:
  • None.

Vortex Diamondback 8x42

by stenmon, from United States, AZ Written on January 25, 2015
Great glass for the money. Shipping was prompt. I have purchased from Optics Planet before and would do so again. I believe Vortex Optics are a great value for the money. These binos could easily have cost twice the amount....
Pros:
  • price, quality, rugged
Cons:
  • None

Mr larry bee

by Pops, from United States, WV Written on January 16, 2015
Great binocs took them on a several bird hikes. Work well with glasses and have a real solid feel. Also sharp images and a lifetime warranty. Lens covers are always attached if you wish and the eye lense covers are easy to remove and attach. The only problem I had was attaching the strap to the binoculars. That could just be my abilities....

by Rick East, from Australia Written on October 24, 2014
Very comfortable for viewing and magnificent magnification, "when your wife has a look through your new binoculars and says "how good are these" they are definitely in my hunting kit. Only problem I found, was when threading the neck strap it would not go through the opening, but with a bit of fishing line and needle problem was solved.Great product highly recommended....
Pros:
  • Very well made
  • Lightweight and comfortable.
  • Great value.
  • Don't have to wear glasses
Cons:
  • none... yet

Well done

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 15, 2014
Very nice binoculars. I was going to buy the Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 binoculars, but the sales person sold me on the gaurantee and the cost difference. The only con is that connecting the strap to the binoculars and getting them adjusted took me an hour. Not bad though, since now they are set for life.
Pros: overall quality and price
Cons: set-up...

Diamondbacks

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 20, 2014
Awesome product, Great delivery and service from Opticsplanet, wont shop anywhere else. These binos are the best choice for outdoorsmen, felt much nicer than Nikon or Zeiss Terra, and cheaper. Vortex warranty is unbeatable!
Pros: Perfect balance

Top notch optics even against other hundreds more

by ejhc1, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on March 2, 2014
Bought these for astronomy, they gather a lot of light, super clarity, easy to use due to huge FOV,they are easily better than binos hundreds of more.

Vortex doesn't need to markup extra dollars like Nikon, Steiner, Zeiss, Bushnell due to brand imaging - Vortex just keeps the cost down and invests in quality products.
Pros: Superior optics,huge FOV, pupil distance
Cons: NONE...

Great product, buy somewhere else if you need it fast

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on November 11, 2013
Great product. I love these, the knob for the focus started out a little stiff, but now is great, they stayed fog/water proof inside, even in terrible weather and the clarity is amazing for the price you pay!

My only problem is with Optics Planet. They shipped FedEx, which is fine, but FedEx handed it off to USPS and it took 3 or 4 more days than it should have. I almost missed my hunting trip because of it. That would have infuriated me. With the price being the exact same at Sportsmans Warehouse, i wish i would have just bought these amazing bino's there and saved some stress. 9 days shipping is inexcusable, i don't care if it was free.
Pros: clarity, waterproof, price
Cons: price same on OP than in stores...
