Product description


Vortex Viper HD 10x42 Binocular V201

From the manufacturer


Adjust Eyecups & IPD

Enjoy comfortable viewing even if you wear eyeglasses. Simply twist the eyecups up or down to see the full field of view. Keep the eyecups fully extended if you aren’t wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses.

The IPD (interpupillary distance) is the distance between the centers of the left and right pupil. Your binocular also has an IPD. To see a single image free of shading, rotate your binocular until its IPD aligns with your eyes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not as good as my Diamondback HD
Reviewed in the United States on 24 July 2020
I just received my Viper HD 10x42, and I've spent the last 3 hours sitting outside, trying to convince myself that these are better than my Diamondback HD 10x42. Unfortunately, I just can't see any significant improvement.

I'll start by saying, I believe you get what you pay for, and quality isn't cheap. I appreciate quality, and am willing to pay extra for it. I am a hobbyist photographer, and have thousands of dollars in fast, f/2.8 professional lenses. I understand what a difference quality glass makes in a lens. The Viper HD definitely feel like they are high quality. Compared to the Diamondback HD, they feel more robust. You can tell they used better materials, and likely better glass. The ocular lenses are beefier than the ones in the diamondback HD. Unfortunately, that's where the praise ends.

The image quality is superb, with very little chromatic aberration and only slight cyan and magenta color fringing in high contrast edges. One glaringly disappointing issue is just that... Glare. The huge ocular lens group is very reflective, and readily reflects light bouncing off my eyes, or leaking in around the gap around my eyes. It's not as noticeable in very bright scenes, but if you're looking at a shaded area, and you have anything bright beside or behind you, you get glare in the image that makes the image degrade. This is absolutely not an issue with my Diamondback HD. The Viper HD is in serious need of large, sealing rubber eye cups. It's like the ocular lens is a big crystal ball that pulls in light from every angle. I tried to show the difference in my images. You can clearly see the large reflections around the edges compared to the Diamondback ones.

Overall, the internal reflections are a deal breaker. Especially when I have none with the cheaper Diamondback HD.

Another issue I have is it seems like the barrels aren't properly aligned. Even when I set the diopter for my right eye, there's just something about the resolution of fine detail that is off. Like my eyes have to strain to put two images together. Maybe I got a defective binoc, but either way, these are going back. Even without the annoying reflections and slight eye strain, the image quality difference isn't worth $300 (150% more) than the Diamondback HD. I wish the build quality was the same. That would make it a no brainer, but even after typing up all these issues, I'm still trying to convince myself to keep the "nicer, more expensive" model. Unfortunately the negatives outweigh the positives. On the bright side, I save myself $500, since I already spent $220 on the Diamondback HD.
