Vortex Diamondback Binos

A couple of months back, I entered Camera Land NY's monthly drawing for various optics. Figured that, as usual, I would pretty much be wasting my time, but did it anyway - and lo & behold I get an email from Doug saying that I had won a pair of Vortex Diamondback 10x42 binoculars. No strings attached, 'just call me up and claim them'. A few days later the binos showed up at my door well packaged and brand spanking new. I really should keep my mouth shut about the monthly drawing (to improve my chances!), but Camera Land (board merchant and sponsor) is a great company to deal with, and these contests are much appreciated.

My real reason for posting is to provide a range report for my free Diamondback's. I've had these for a couple of months now and have had a chance to use them indoors & out, cold & warm, and dry & wet conditions. These things are built like a tank! The BaK-4 prisms are fully multicoated, and provide sharp views edge to edge. The binos are rubber coated - never had any concerns about water - and they are VERY tight which keeps the ID set even when they are banged around while hanging on your neck. I wear eyeglasses, and the soft rubber eye-cups adjust easily to allow me to either wear them or not. Plenty of eye relief for comfortable viewing.

Overall, these are a very solid pair of binoculars, compact enough to carry pretty much anywhere, and they provide excellent views of whatever you're observing - at the range, birding, watching your neighbors (kidding!), or whatever. The price was right (REALLY RIGHT!) for me, but these things are definitely worth their modest price. If you're looking for a compact set of quality binos to take to the range or to the blind, I don't think you can go wrong with these.

And if you decide to buy a pair, talk to the guys at Camera Land - they know what they're doing! Check them out in the Merchants - Deals & News forum.
