Very nice easy to use binoculars.
Shawn Smith
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.

10x56 is a great glass for low light conditions.

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.

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.
