10x56 is a great glass for low light conditions.
Timothy Hunt
In low light conditions, the binoculars also appear to offer a slight Amber tent to things.
Kirk Johnson
Awesome, have looked at a lot of big bucks through them!

The Vortex Vulture 10x56 Bino sold by Opitcal Planet and fulfilled by Amazon. Point out this is the HD model even though it does not state such online. That is an overlooked item of some significance in my opinion. These appear to be very well made binoculars. I am replacing a pair of Zeiss 10x56 that were stolen a few years ago. My second pair of Zeis to be stolen. I currently have a pair of Swarovski as well. (not stolen yet). The 10x56 Vortex is a smaller and lighter optic than the Zeiss. They appear to be well made with some thoughtful engineering. The glass is very good. As good as my Zeiss or Swarovski I am not sure and will need to to make some side by side test. On a cost basis? Outstanding glass. I would probably buy another Vortex product based upon what I have seen so far. 10x56 is a great glass for low light conditions. I suggest you have something to stabilize them as well.

Well, I have to get it out-of-the-way and start off by saying, the glass is pretty good. But the drawbacks make it so I am returning them. Definitely I would not recommend buying these compared to others that are out there and the price of these compared to other quality glass.

I have been in the market for a new binoculars and wanted to get something that would last and be high-quality for hunting big game out west where optics are 100% the cause for success!. Aside from thousand dollar binoculars and up, my price range was below that, so, I began my search. A friend had the Bushnell HD binoculars that run somewhere around 350 bucks and I couldn't believe how amazing they were, I just thought I was a novice or something because, come on, they are Bushnell... Anyway, I did not bite. I did tons of research went into bass pro shops and read review after review. Watched videos and YouTube and everything. I ended up buying these vortex Viper's 10 x 56. I was sold on the family company story and all of the reviews. Plus the 56 mm was supposed to let in tons more light. I am now convinced that vortex and or the distributors of vortex must have hired micro workers or other people for nominal fee to write rave reviews. These binoculars are good but nowhere near the value for the cost.

Let's start with the pros. They look pretty good. They feel almost like you're holding Swarovski binoculars. Things are crisp and the focus of just is very smooth and seems to hold focus even when widening and narrowing the binoculars.

Let's talk about the cons. These binoculars feel like they must weigh two times as much as they should. Also, the field of view is extremely narrow which causes everything you are looking at to be shaky unless you are using some sort of a rest or tripod mount.

Nice binoculars. Solid, heavy. VERY heavy. For the added FOV over a 10x42 I'm not sure the 10x56 is worth its weight (literally!).
My previous birding bino's are Leupold Wind River Cascades 10x42. Very nice, and really withstanding the test of time, but I found when I went out with others that I was spending a lot of time sharing the binos around. The FOV advantage sounded appealing, all the talk of improved light gathering sounded appealing, so I decided to upgrade and make these Vultures my new primary bino and the old 10x42s my "loaners".
I heard a lot of great things about Vortex so checked them out at a brick-and-mortar hunting gear place and ordered these on Amazon.

So, as mentioned; heavy! According to my kitchen scale over a pound heavier (a fraction of an ounce under 1.5 pounds vs a fraction over 2.5 pounds, so 66% heavier!).
FOV is greater than 10x42, but in actual practice I don't find that it makes that much difference.
Light gathering; not as dramatic as I had thought it would be. I could not tell a significant difference, although I don't do much low light viewing so YMMV.

My biggest gripe: Fit and finish. One of the eye cups has a noticeably "stiffer" range of extension, but no big deal. The diopter adjustment is non-locking (as opposed to my old Leopold Wind Rivers) and tends to catch on and move with the focus knob (each way!!), and, most unforgivably, the two barrels do not seem to be truly in-line.

The diopter issue was my first concern. Once the diopter was adjusted it just seemed to keep coming out of adjustment. I finally noticed that as the focus knob was adjusted it would catch slightly on the diopter adjustment knob and move it slightly each time the focus was moved.
