My family gave me a Vortex Diamondback 10X42 binocular for Christmas. Bright and sharp! Took it out looking for owls the day after Christmas, and they caused a headache after short use, and I couldn't hold them steady.(Not 19 any more.) The seller agreed to exchange them for me, and I would pay the difference in cost for a different series. But, apparently,(story of my life!) Vortex had decided not to offer the 6X32s I really wanted, so, I was offered the Viper 8X42s at the same price. Happy Camper! Much lighter than my old, very satisfactory, Bushnell Legends, bright, and sharp! Fully the equal of the Nikon Monarchs I had been lusting after, but I haven't had the chance to compare them side by side. JIC rating of 6, which means fully waterproof. Definitely recommended. Product and customer service are outstanding.

There comes a point in spending money on anything where additional money spent gets you an imperceptible difference in quality. The few hundred dollars difference between a $75 binocular and a $275 binocular is money well spent. However, the more high-end you get the less you get for the next jump in price (my eyes can see no difference between the $1200 binocular and the $2500 binocular - money wasted, at least on me). I was looking for the best 8x42 binocular under $1000. I considered the Nikon Monarch ATB (still the best binocular under $300), and the Zeiss Conquest. A friend recommended the Vortex Viper, and I had never heard of them. I researched on line and found nothing but rave reviews (Field and Stream Best of the Best; birddigiscoping.com; and various message boards). I then compared them to the Nikon and the Zeiss - WOW. They blew the Nikons away! - much better brightness, contrast, resolution, and edge sharpness. Definitely worth the extra couple of hundred. Compared ...
