Which bino has better overall quality:  The Nikon Monarch ATB, the Vortex Razor, or the Vortex Viper - all in 8x42?

Thanks Ilya.  That's what I thought based upon my research, but I am not knowledgeable about optics.  Do you think there is a a significat difference in optics and image quality with the razor over the viper?  The Razor costs about $200 more than the viper.

Whether the difference is worth the money is a very personal choice.  I would go with the Razors, but I suspect most people would be very happy with the Vipers.

One big thing is the Razor has wider FOV than the Viper.  I haven't compared the two side by side; I own a Razor 8X42, I've only looked through the Viper.  Both are very nice, but the Razor would be my choice as well.  You'd be hard pressed to find a binocular that competes with it optically anywhere close to its price.
