To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Simply the best value for money binoculars on the market. Fantastic optics especially in low light conditions. Optics and quality better than other brands that cost over double the price of these gems. Worth every cent.
The binoculars are exceptional quality - feel really well built - optics are super with sharp clear images in all light conditions. I researched these widely before purchasing, I'm more than pleased, and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a mid quality compact pair of binoculars. (the Vortex lifetime warranty is a huge benefit, and gives great peace of mind. )
Performance and delivery from Amazon was a great disappointment - initial (Prime) delivery advised as 27th Jan to 2nd Feb, but didn't arrive until 14th Feb - product should have been black, but green version arrived! Considering delay already, just decided to keep green ones, but not great service or information from Amazon!
I picked these up for my sister who is giving them to her husband as a gift. She had a friend who had showed her a pair of Swarovski binoculars which she said were absolutely amazing but were astronomically out of her price range. She wanted something nice but reasonably priced for the gift. I did the research and reviews for the Vortex brand & a couple of models were consistently right up there with the Swarovski's. She decided to go with the Diamondback 10x42 based on the research I did showing consistent great reviews and a price point which was sane. When they arrived she opened them up and tried them beside me. She said the wow factor was similar to the Swarovski's. I tried them and I can say they were the clearest, brightest, best binoculars I have ever used ever in my lifetime. I brought out my big 10 lb Celestron Skymaster 15x70's to compare with the Diamondbacks. The Vortex Diamondbacks were so much clearer and the 10x42 magnification to me looked almost the same as my huge 15x70 Celestron I use for everything around the place including astronomy looking at planets, comets and the Moon. I actually thought things were the same size looking at distant landscapes in both binoculars, but the Diamondbacks were so much clearer, brighter and better. Looks like I'm getting new binoculars sometime soon. These Diamondbacks are very nice. I highly recommend them based on my very brief experience with them.
Unos prismáticos perfectos para la iniciación en la observación de naturaleza. De peso ligero son bonitos y con un diseño ergonómico. Incluye un funda blanda que facilita y proteje en su transporte. La calidad visual es muy aceptable incluso en condiciones de luz tenue. Distancia de enfoque corta lo que facilita la observación de microfauna (libélulas u otros insectos). Pero sin lugar a dudas lo mejor de este producto es Garantía Vortex de por vida garantizada. Osea, y básicamente si por accidente o debido al uso los binoculares se deterioran, gratuitamente su garantía Vortex te los repara y si no tiene reparación te dan unos nuevos del mismo modelo.
What can I say that really has not been said about them. They a clear they let in lots of light. They have just great glass. The only thing if I have to pick a Con. The glass pack bag the straps are to short. I guess they think all people that will be using them are skinny. Lol well I did not buy them for the carry bag it’s just a plus. The next strap they give you is very nice.
