Description

The Vortex Diamondback 8x42 are binoculars for bird watchers and travelers. The HD glass provides an optimized image with a high resolution. This way, the colors stay true to nature and the image is sharp from edge to edge without chromatic aberrations. Thanks to the 5.3mm exit pupil and the twilight factor of 18.3, you can easily use these binoculars during sunset. You can observe drinking animals in twilight, for example. With the close focus of 1.5 meters, you can easily focus on subjects closer to you. This way, you can also focus on footprints or birds low in a tree. The anti-glare coatings reduce reflections. This also gives you good visibility in a lot of sunlight.

    • Razor-sharp image
    • Complete
    • Nice fitting bag (not too tight)
    • Not heavy, but solid
    • Nice compact
    • Eye side lens caps are not attached to the viewer, small risk of getting lost

    Only owned it for a short time but very enthusiastic. Impressed with the image. The plumage of birds can even be clearly seen. Very nice.

    Beautiful binoculars for relatively little money
    • Performs great in the dark
    • Sturdy movable parts
    • Tripod connection
    • No carrying bag but harness
    • heavy

    My old binoculars had to be replaced, because the rotating parts were lame. With these binoculars it feels much more solid than my old ones, even when I just got them. Compared to the old one, which already performed well in the dark, this one performs perfectly. I also checked out the 8x32 and while it isn't much lower in the dark, it still has a brighter image. Choice is also made on these cases because of the tripod connection. You still have to arrange that yourself. There are also disadvantages, so I had to consider it carefully. With 650 grams, these binoculars are quite heavy. A nice carrying bag is included, but unfortunately not just for around your neck, but a kind of vague harness construction. So I have to come up with something for that.

    Great lightweight binoculars
    • Easy in use
    • Weighs little
    • Nice image in daylight
    • The lens protectors fall off easily
    • Less good image at twilight

    I think these are very nice binoculars to take with me on my walks. Nice and light and a comfortable lanyard around the neck. In daylight, the viewer gives a good picture. For twilight you need a more expensive model. A downside is that the retaining rings of the lens protectors do not work properly. If you walk around with the protective covers open, they fall off unnoticed. I take off the protectors while walking.
