Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but..... Birdwatching only. I love these binos, great clear crisp images, sturdy, easy to use, but......... the right eyecup has come loose, hard to keep focus, constantly fiddling around with eyecup, must have had to readjust a hundred times last time out birding. I love that they are made here in America and it was a big reason I got them. My Nikon Monarchs have the same issue so I am hoping that Vortex will come through with a fix where Nikon was no help at all. I have a HD Razor scope and it has been spot on perfect since I got it so it was a bit disappointing to have something as fundamental as the eyecup to fail. Sorry for the double posting....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass....greater company! We've had these for 2 years now with no problems and wonderful viewing, especially for the price. My wife mainly used them and when I had them one day I noticed the diopter ring wouldn't move. Contacted Vortex and Graham Goeglein quickly answered back to send them back to be fixed. I took less than 10 days to go from my house to Vortex where they replaced the diopter assembly. They also replaced the lens caps and checked and cleaned everything else. All of this was at no cost whatsoever, just like their warranty says. I wish all companies had service like this. I highly recommend Vortex products to anyone interested.....can't go wrong here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bins! Just thought I'd add to my previous review on these binoculars to give prospective purchasers an idea on how they perform over time. What I love about these bins is the 'build quality'. For a fraction of the price of the 'known brands' such as Zeiss, Leica, Swarowski etc, you get a superb optical performance. I have owned my 'bins' for two years and they were a replacement for my 35 year old Swift Audubons which I thought would be irreplaceable. Would I buy Vortex again? Absolutely. They are fantastic. Would I replace them? Yes! When I have enough money to upgrade to the Vortex HD! Thanks Vortex-Fantastic bins and great value for money to boot! Gibbo
