Hello everyone,My cousin and i have been testing these two binoculars for about a week now.I have the 8.5 x50 vortex razors and my cousin with his recently purchased zeiss 8x42 victory FLs.First off,both optics are amazing.The zeiss is brighter,more field of view 405 ft and very colorful.The vortex is slightly less bright very colorful and clear also.We have been testing them in the morning,midday and afternoon.Heres the suprising part,We both agree that the vortex has better distance resolution over the zeiss.The field of view on the zeiss didn't seem that much more over the vortex's 358ft field of view.When we tested the optics after dark,the zeiss did show increased brightness over the vortex.The first few hundreds yds,the zeiss was slightly more contrasty over the vortex,but after that the vortex was more clearer at distance.Looking in the trees for birds is were the zeiss really shines.But for hunting,glassing open fields,greater distances,IMO i would pick the vortex over the zeiss.For birding i would pick the zeiss.The downside of the vortex 8.5x50 is its very heavy at 37 oz.I have a nimrod harness thats simply amazing with handling the vortex's weight.The vortex razor line of binoculars are truly a bargain for the money.Ijust wanted to put my 02$ in,Thanks for listening on this great forum Steve....
