Vortex Diamondback 8x42 Details

NEW IN 2016

This all-around Diamondback 8x42 can be used for different purposes and is therefore suitable for wide varieties of outdoor activities. This model would be recommended for observations of the game and other wildlife by birdwatchers and hunters in open areas. Full sized 42 mm objective lens gives good light performance and is suitable for observations in both day time and early mornings/late evenings. It would also be recommended for travelers that want to enjoy the sightseeing and enhance the visual experience without the need for very detailed images due to 8x magnification. Vortex Optics took care of the quality phase prism coating and anti-reflective coating for even higher performance with good light gathering ability to spot the target object. Field of view of this Diamondback is 120m, making it little easier to follow fast moving objects. The height of these binoculars is 5.8 inches or 14.73 cm, width is 5.1 inches or 12.95 cm and the weight is 21.8 ounces or 618 g, which makes it a universally sized. It can be used mounted on a tripod, but would also gave enough stable images if only carried in hands. Thanks to Argon gas purged construction, these binoculars have especially good protection against water and fog and you wouldn’t want to worry for sudden temperature drops due to its O-ring seal for maximum compression. Vortex Optics not only made quality protection solutions but also ergonomically optimized its design for easy carrying around.

 

Short description of Vortex Diamondback Binoculars

The best-selling Diamondback Binoculars from the Vortex Optics are hand-friendly binoculars with roof prism design that makes them convenient for everyday use. Diamondback models would be recommended for the first-time buyers that are looking for binoculars with good quality and high-performance at affordable price. Incredible ergonomic design is the result of short hinge design and lightweight body. Hard rugged rubber armor provides a non-slip grip and protects binoculars against impacts and abrasions. They are fully waterproof and eliminate internal fogging due to temperature fluctuations with Argon gas purging sealed with O-rings. Diamondbacks have very quick and smooth central focus view with grippy central wheel and right-eye diopter that eliminates the differences in your eyes. Anti-reflective coating in these on all glass surfaces increases light transmission and gives good resolution in low light conditions with the help of phase correction. Diamondback binoculars have multi-positional twist eye caps that are soft tapered for relaxed viewing and can be adjusted for a proper eye relief even for glass-wearers. The lens covers are independently tethered and can be easily attached and removed. You can mount the most powerful models to a tripod for less shaky images.

Zelo pozitivno sem bil presenečen, ko sva s kolegom v mraku primerjala ta Vortex D. 8x42 s 3x dražjim (in 2x težjim) namenskim daljnogledom 8x56 zveneče znamke.
Skupna ugotovitev: odličen daljnogled za to ceno! Zelo uporaben tudi v večernem ali jutranjem mraku, presenetljivo dobra svetlobna prepustnost in jasna slika za to velikost leče. Dovolj lahek in majhen za zalaz, v nahrbtniku ne zavzame veliko prostora. Dovolj široko vidno polje in zelo dobra globinska ostrina za Roof sistem leč.


*****

I was very positive surprised when I and my colleague compared this Vortex binoculars with 3x more expensive (and 2x heavier) 8x56 binoculars in the dark.
Overall conclusion: great binoculars for this price! Very useful also in the evening or morning twilight, surprisingly good light transmission and clear picture for the size of lens. Lightweight and small enough for stalking. It doesn't take up too much space in the backpack. A sufficiently wide field of view and very good focus depth for Roof Prism system.

I have red plenty of reviews about these binoculars and when I got them I have compared them against all binoculars of my friends. I made the right decision, since I can see that in this price class it would have been hard to get binoculars with a better quality. I can easily recommend them to all beginners in birdwatching.
