    I just got a Pair of 10x42 Razor HD's and wow! I went in looking at the Sawvs and they guy at BassPro handed me a set of the Razor HD's. He told me to bring them back within 30 days if I did not like them. So I went home and did some reading about them and went back and bought a pair. Took them out that weekend with a friend to help him do some scouting, he had the $2500+ Swavs and he said if he ever had to get another pair It would be the Razors and he is thinking about selling the Swavs and buying a pair of Razor HD's and use the extra money on some other gear he wants.

    If Vortex made the Razors with a rangefinder inside them it would be very tempting to switch.

    I have a pair of diamondback 10x42s and am happy with them although I have to admit I was very disappointed to find the little golden 'Made In China' sticker on the bottom when I got them home. Despite that fact they have been good for the money. One year I lost the
    rubber lens cap while positioning for a shot on a deer. I left that cap at 10000 feet. I called Vortex to see if I could buy another one and they sent me a replacement at no charge. I will give my business to them again. I want the razors.

    I want a pair of 15x56 Kaibab's!

    I wish Pentax would come out with a dcf-sp 15x56 or dcf-ed 15x56

    Husky,

    If you like the dcf-sp, you should check out a Zen Ray ED3. Much better CA control, and a much wider FOV. Similar price.

    If you want SP performance in a 15x binocular you should take a look at the Minox 15X56 BL. I want to get one myself.

    Not quite a Kaibab, but not that far behind either.

    thanks for the mention, not familiar with zen ray... i have some sp10x43, really like them, at the time for the money, of everything I compared to, were the best.

    I'll take a look at both those zen ray and minox, if I do get a 15x56 I'd probably want to step up a little in quality. If Kaibabs were under $1000 it would be much easier to justify, when I bought my SP's for $500 or so I thought I was kinda nuts after hunting with $100 binos most of my life... now I tell everyone to spend as much as they can/more than they want to/plan to, ie spend 500, not 200... but of course there's only so much $$ in a wallet...

    thinking about all these toys makes me want to hunt more!

    Husky,

    Cameralandny has demo Minox 15X56 for $599. Don't buy the last one though. It's mine, after I get some other stuff I have my eye on.

    On bonus about the Minox is it is much lighter than other 15x roof prism bins.

    I doubt I'll be buying any 15x for at least a year...

    although checking out vortex, maybe some diamondback 10x28, I have pentax dcf-lv 9x28, which are nice, esp compared to $35 compacts... my dad has kinda stolen them... was gonna get a 2nd pair, we'll see.
