Vortex Razor HD 8x42 ED Binoculars

Vortex Razor HD 8x42 ED Binoculars

Due to high demand and global product shortages due to the pandemic, please call for availability.

Take advantage of the latest advances in engineering and high definition glass technology with the Vortex Razor binocular. This binocular delivers incredibly natural color distinction, with excellent brightness in low-light conditions, and razor-sharp details.

This latest generation of Razor binoculars is well improved over the previous generation. Images are sharper and more true-to-life. They approach the quality of glasses selling for more than $2000.00.

The edge definition has been improved over previous generations, and even beats the Vortex Viper HD. The flatness of field is wonderful, showing very little curvature of field.

The coatings are highly transmissive, clearly visible by looking at the surface of the optics - light appears to be swallowed up, rather than reflected.

The improved focuser is smoother, while both the focuser and diopter were made easier to adjust. The depth of field has been improved; background content is more in focus, while enhancing the three dimensional feeling.

Our tests reveal this binocular to be outstanding. When looking at pine needles at 80m, lower quality binoculars look softer, making the needles appear indistinct and flat. The Razor 8x42 resolves the needles distinctly.

Vortex has a winner on its hands.
