    Last pair of bino's I'll ever buy, under $2k?

    Eyes aren't what they used to be, $500 binos just not cutting it any longer. I see the Vortex Razor HD 10x42 is in the $1500 range, are they a contender with the Leica/swaro/zeiss or should I just accept the <$2k price tag of the big 3.

    Sorry I meant the razor not the viper.
    That's what my gut is telling me, I'll have to go look through a few but I've always had a crush on the Leica's
    As hard on riggin as I am figured I'd consider the Vortex for their warranty and all the hype around em lately.

    They all have that warranty, vortex is just better at marketing it. I would go with the swaro's personally. they just seem not as clunky as the leica's. but you really cant go wrong

    Thanks mike
    Starting to lean towards a range finding bino. Leica 10x42 Geovid HD-R for $3k. Could liquidate my Leica 1600-b rangefinder (a real stud of a product!) and my current binos for around $1k. So technically I'd only be into the new unit for $2k, and eliminate an extra piece of gear. This makes perfect sense

    I would be looking through the new Zeiss before I made any decisions
