        Right out of the box these bino's worked great. Bought them for my son's Chrismas present but gave them to him early to use for hunting. Bright and clear. You pay a little more but well worth it!

            Comments about Vortex 10x42mm Talon HD Binoculars:

            These binoculars are by far the best I've owned. Mind you, I didn't comparison shop and my experience with binoculars is limited to the half dozen, or so, that I've used, abused, broken and/or lost over the years. I purchased these "sight unseen" over the internet based solely on the quality of the Vortex spotting scope that I did exhaustive research on before buying. The Talon's are amazingly clear. Probably because of the HD glass – whatever that means. Another huge selling point for me was the Vortex warranty. I just hope that I don't lose these.

            This is our first set of binoculars. After much research we narrowed our decision to the Vortex or Nikon brands. In the end we opted for the Vortex Talon with the HD glass. They are compact, comfortable to hold, balanced and have amazing clarity even in low light condition when it it is dusk out. I'm sure they will provide us years of pleasure. If you want quality take a second look at Vortex.

            Purchased both the Vortex Talon and Viper 10 x 42 models. Didn't notice any discernable difference in optics, but found the Viper more compact size to be much more apealing for carrying around all day bird watching.

              Comments about Vortex 10x42mm Talon HD Binoculars:

              These are great bins, perfect for bird watching. They are a little heavier than I'm used to, but that's probably because I've never had quality binoculars in the $400-500 price range. The close focus is incredible and they also work well in low light conditions, perfect for birding at dawn or dusk. I gave these to my boyfriend for Christmas, who is a budding birder and he absolutely loves them. He was up at dawn the day after Christmas testing out his new bins and was amazed at the detail and colors of birds he saw. HD lenses make all the difference.

              Just took my new talon hd binos to the desert by my house in Arizona. Went out in low light conditions. Better than my brothers much more expensive euros. What a great bino for the money. And u can not beat the vortex life time warranty.. You can pay all you want for that status high dollar binos, I like my money in my pocket, and quality in my hands. Great job vortex, great job!!!

                Bought these binoculars after reading a full review at [@] that praised both the binoculars and Binoculars.com. All of the good things I read and heard about the Talons are true. The optics are comparable to high dollar binoculars as well as the shape, size and feel. Very happy with these binoculars. Great price for "hd" glass.
