I was dead set on the Kenai, but today I went to Cabalas and made the mistake of looking through a Razor HD before looking through the Kenai man they don’t even compare optically or mechanically. I know this sounds a little silly considering the price difference of about $700 but I had surmised that HD glass was pretty much the same across the board I was wrong! I really like the mechanics and ergonomics of the Razor and after some research discovered the Viper HD. Mechanically it looks very similar to the Razor to include the big dioptic lens the Kenai's was horribly small. My question is how the glass on the Viper HD compares to the Kenai if it's equivalent or better I think I know what I want. Has any one looked through both and compared them.

The Viper HD is night and day difference vs the Leupold's Kenai.
One of the really neat things that I like about the Viper HD is the retractable sun shade, but the Razor has that also. Cool
They are both great scopes, but the Viper HD has two different models, one with less magnification and lighter, more backback friendly, than the 20-60 modles.
Another great spotter you may also want to check out is the Zen-Ray ED.
