Have you been wishing there were a high-performance binocular at an affordable price? Your wish has now become a reality! With enhanced, dielectric fully multi-coated lenses, the Vortex Diamondback series of binoculars is astoundingly efficient, providing stunning views and impressive low-light performance. This makes it the perfect binocular for the average bird watcher, and Ultimate Buying Guides has listed the Diamondback 8×42 as a “great choice for Birding.” The Diamondbacks’ ultra-wide field of view allows you to effortlessly acquire subjects. Aesthetically, the sleek look and short-hinge design grabs the eye. In addition, the short-hinge leaves more room for your hands, so it is easier and more comfortable to hold.

The Vortex Diamondback series features fully multi-coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces, thus increasing light transmission. In addition, multi-layer prism coatings provide bright, clear, color-accurate images. O-ring seals assure the series to be waterproof by preventing moisture, as well as dust and debris, from penetrating. Thus, the Diamondback series provides reliable performance in all environments. The series is also fog-proof as a result of argon gas purging during construction. This prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures. A rubber armor provides a secure, durable external protection, as well as providing a non-slip grip surface.

For convenience, adjustable eyecups twist up and down for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses. A diopter is available on the right eyepiece to adjust for differences in a user’s eyes. All members of the Diamondback series can be adapted to tripods, making it possible to use them on either a tripod or a window mount.

The 10×42 designation means it has a magnification of 10x and an objective lens diameter of 42 mm. Eye relief, or distance between the exit pupil and user’s pupil is 16 mm, and the exit pupil is 4.2 mm in diameter. The linear field of view is 345 feet at a distance of 1000 yards.
