Excerpt: I've enjoyed photography for 60 years. I really appreciate fine optics. I decided to spring for an alpha-class scope. I'm thrilled with my Razor Vortex. Images are amazingly bright, clear and sharp throughout the 20-60 range of magnifications. It is as sharp at 60x as it is at 20x.
Pros: Clear lenses, Good in any weather, Good value
Excerpt: Just returned from a two week trip to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Bought the scope for this and birding use in the future. First time I looked throu the scope I was amazed. The image was much brighter than through my Nikon 600 f/4 lens with a TC at approximately the same magnification.
Pros: Accurate, Clear lenses, Easy to install / use, Good Carrying Case, Good value
Excerpt: Scope is used primarily for birding and exceeded my expectations! It makes identifying a specific breed of bird much easier. I shopped around and B&H prices were by far the best and my salesperson was extremely helpful answering some last minute questions.
Pros: Accurate, Adjustable, Clear lenses, Easy to install / use, Good in any weather, Good value
Excerpt: Just unpacked my Vortex and then took it to Maine for about a week. We were all amazed at the clarity and available light/bright view, even when the fog was rolling in. The images are tack sharp all the way out to the edges, making our viewing of a bald eagle each day, and a distant light house...
Pros: Accurate, Adjustable, Clear lenses, Easy to install / use, Good value

Pros: Adjustable, Clear lenses, Easy to install / use, Good in any weather, Good value
Summary: I've had my Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 angled spotting scope for a few months already and cannot be more pleased with the quality and ease of use. First, the optics are brite, clear, super resolution, bringing distant birds into sharp focus.
Summary: I have a friend with a comparable Swarovski scope (same specs and design), so when I read previous reviews about the quality of this scope, I knew I'd have a chance to do my own side-by-side comparison.
Excerpt: I bought this for birding and digiscoping. I've had it a very short time so this is my first hands-on opinion. This is a hefty piece of gear and looks like it could handle the rough stuff reasonably well.I hope I never have to backup that statement.
Pros: Accurate, Adjustable, Clear lenses, Good value
Cons: Lens Cap Hard To Remove, Lens Cap Hard To Replace
Summary: I had been using an Alpen 20-60x60 and a Vortex Nomad 20-60x60. Both were great (especially the Vortex Nomad) but I was ready for something more. I had checked out all my friend's scopes (including the new STX Swarovski 95mm!
