Legacy Reviewer's Review of Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 Spotting Scope

Bought my Razor before archery season and I really like this scope. I will say it is probably the best value for your money as far as high end scopes go, but no matter what reviews you read that say the optics are as good or better than Swaro and Zeiss are incorrect.

Compared to a Swaro 15x45x60 and a Zeiss T-FL 20x60x85. The major noticeable difference is in the color and contrast. For most people that are birdwatching or nature viewing, this may not be a problem, but when you are looking at a bull elk at 1.5 miles and trying to pick out points on his antlers, this makes a big difference.

Dont get me wrong, this is a fantastic scope. Excellent warranty, great fit and finish, good optics, nice eye relief, good light gathering, good edge to edge clarity. If you are in the market for a sub $2000 scope for the truck or for base camp, IMO this one cant be beat.

So with that, you can spend more to get a better scope, but if you were like me and wanted a great scope for a great value, this is the one. Only thing I dont really like is the case that they give you. I will be getting a neoprene sleeve soon.
Pros: Easy to use, good optics, great focus, great fit and finish.
Cons: Color rendition a little off, Optics not quite the quality of Swaro and Zeiss
