I'm in the market for a new set of 10x binos, and was out looking at the vortex as well as the swaros, zeiss and cabelas brand. I refuse to pay the price of the swaros, and was really enamored with the vortex, especially the warrantee.

I've read all of the threads on here regarding all of the vortex binos, but was wondering if someone could clarify what exactly is the difference between the talons and the razors? Other than the $700 price, and the few ounces of weight. The razor felt better put together than the talons, but with a lifetime warranty, is the overall quality of the razors that much more superior?

I looked at the vipers as well, but they're out, didn't fit my skinny face. Both the talon and razor felt great to look through.

I hate to keep beating the dead horse that is vortex threads, but I'm no bino expert, and don't want to regret the purchase, as I don't really want to buy binos ever again.
