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.Read more ›
These aren't to be used by limp wristed metrosexuals.
They are meant to let in a lot of light. If you are going to be looking through them for long periods of time, or are using the 15x56 rather than the 8 or 10 magnification model, then you'll want to tripod it which these are meant to do.
These are just as clear and crisp as the Viper HD's and they are brighter with the big lenses but cost half the price.
These are great for the cost and are great low light/night hunting bins or star gazing on a tripod.
If you want lightweight then don't get a 56mm objective, but if you want a large exit pupil, light gathering machine for low light use then get this Vulture in 8x56 for a full 7mm exit pupil. The 10x56 is probably the best all around model. The 15x56 would be mainly a tripod bin and a seldom hand held. 15x is going to be shaky even in the lightest weight binocular
The only thing that kept me from getting a fifth star is it just seems to be a little heavy
And my sister and my friends all like it.
Only one wish is "should this item be a little bit cheaper?"

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. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Kirk Johnson
