Gear Review: Vortex Diamondback 8x42

These binoculars are great for amateur and advanced amateur birders. They are very sharp and are easy to work with. They have adjusting eye cups, diopter, smooth focus ring, and they are waterproof. They are 25.2 ounces providing a light and easy to carry pair of optics. Phase correction, multi coated lenses, and tough rubber armor all come together in these binoculars to make the viewer enjoy the experience of using them. They have a close focus of 4.5 feet which is pretty darn good. I suggest for a cheaper alternative you use ebay to purchase these. Just be careful on ebay, make sure the seller has high ratings, and make sure the optics are almost brand new.  They also come with a rather spectacular case. I use these in the field now, and they work flawlessly. Have a nice day and happy birding.
