So to sum up, if you are looking for a binocular with very high quality optics that translates to an extremely good view, but don't fancy spending the mega sums of money that the "top end" brand names sell for, then I highly recommend the Vortex 8x42 Viper HD Binoculars.

I upgraded from my 20-year old binoculars, also 8x42, and what a difference! Colors just pop, and the image is super sharp, even in poor lighting. One thing I didn't like, though it did not affect my rating, is the case. The snap closure on it is so stiff that I can't open it.

It's been almost a year since I purchased the Talon 10x42's, and I recently fell in love with them all over again while watching a northern flicker (bird) at my birdfeeder. I could see every shaft of every feather, every shade of yellow under the wings, the tiny details in every spot on the belly,...

I wanted to upgrade from my EO Denali, so I paid a visit to the Eagle Optics store and asked to try the EO Ranger ED, EO Golden Eagle HD, and the Swarovski EL (the last one only to check the gold standard in binoculars, I had no intention to purchase something that expensive).
