Sold on Vortex


I was looking for a compact binocular that didn't cost too much for sporting events and touring/sight-seeing. I'd bought a less expensive one but it was unacceptable to me because I have to use binoculars with my eyeglasses and the eye relief was too shallow. I decided to spend a little more and get the Vortex Diamondback even though I hadn't heard much about the company. I'm glad I did.The Diamondback 8x28 not only has 19mm of eye relief, it also has a very nice 6.9 degree field of view. Not to mention that it's waterproof, fog proof, fully multi-coated and has BAK4 prisms. Build quality is good and the focus is smooth and accurate. The image quality is really quite good for a compact binocular. Especially at this price. What a noticeable difference between the Diamonback and the $60 one that I'd gotten before!On a side note, the first one I got had one eyecup that retracted a little too far. I decided to return it to Vortex under their VIP warranty. They emailed me a FedEx label to ship the binocular to them free of charge. They decided not to repair it but immediately shipped me a brand new one. So, the quality of the product that I bought and the really excellent warranty and service has impressed me and has me sold on Vortex.
