Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazingly clear and sharp!!! After long consideration I put my marriage on the line and bought the 10x42 version. Having them out in the field this year was an absolute game changer!!!! Also took this photo a boy seeing his first 6 point elk at about 1400 yards. For sure worth the money. Only down side in cold weather the protecting lense covers become so stiff the stick in the front objective Really badly and the eye piece cover as well becomes so stiff they are almost impossible to remove... keep them just in the case when the temperature low. Seems to become an issue at -10C

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The New Standard To be fair, when I first purchased these binoculars I was sceptical but optimistic from the great performance I had received from the original Razor HD’s. When first opening the packaging (which is quite nice) I noticed the weight which is a bit more then the HD Razors. Looking the binoculars over the quality is on par with the best in the business, looks are similar to the HD Razors and the eye cups move with a great amount of resistance. Not as firm as some binoculars I have had a chance to use but I would say these are just right! The ergonomics are great and these feel fantastic in the hands with the barrels offset from one another. This proved helpful this cold November deer season in Alberta where heavier gloves where used. Being able to wrap both gloved hands around each barrel made it much easier to stabilize and get comfortable. Now to the optics, which are stunning! I had thought the Razors HD’s where good for the price. These are very sharp, clear to the edge, and the colours seem to pop! They are very bright giving one the feeling that there pupils are dilating. Also a first for me even having looked through a few different pairs of optics. Now that I have owned these binoculars for a few months I got the feeling I was missing out not having a well known European brand of alpha glass. Having travelled to the sporting goods store and purchasing many different European optics to later return or keep if better. I found that the Vortex UHD where either right there in sharpness, brightness, and ergonomics. In most instances I found that these outperformed some that where in the same price range. Suffice to say these where kept due to being on par with the European competition (if not better) and a much better price as well. The testing was done on a tripod looking out into the city landscape or out in the prairies scouting, examining objects/animals in the distance. Vortex has made a very fine piece of glass that is worth the price tag, matching or exceeding the performance of others that cost much more. The pros of these alpha level binoculars outweigh the very few minor cons. Well done again Vortex!
