Vortex Razor UHD 12x50 Reviews

Unbelievable clarity

By THOMAS
Rated 5 out of 5

I hope this review helps. I was deciding between the Swarovski NL pure 12x42 and the Vortex Razor UHD 12x50 while I was at Cabelas. I spent over an hour comparing this two side by side. I purchased the Vortex and this is why. The clarity after steering through both of these 10-20 times each is almost identical. I know Swarovski people will disagree. The field of view is definitely better on the NL Pure. The color is slightly and I mean slightly better on the NL's. The weight is less on the NL's, but highly manageable to hold for a period of time on the Vortex. The Razor UHD are made in Japan. (Not China) here is another huge reason I purchased the Vortex over the Swarovski besides price. The unconditional warranty for a lifetime. Vortex Will warranty them no matter what happened to them. Swarovski will only warranty them against Manufacturer defects. The difference in price is substantial between these two Binoculars. I highly suggest spending some time behind both before deciding. I own a Swarovski modular spotting scope which is about twice the price of 2 NL Pure Binoculars. So it is not about the price. I purchased the Vortex Razor UHD 12x50 from B&H photo on sale for an incredible deal. Super ship shipping best price and knowledgeable staff. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND B&H photo.

Super Heavy!

I misjudged how heavy 3 pounds was going to be, carrying them around for birding. Comparing to my Viper HD 12x50's, I'm not seeing a great improvement, for the price difference.

Great place to shop!

12x50 are they ok hand held?
Asked by: Eugene
Hand holding the Vortex 12x50 Razor UHD Binoculars BH #VO12X50RUHDB • MFR #RZB-3103 Is more of a personal issue. I know many that have difficulty in holding a 10X stable enough for a good view. Others can hold a 12X stable enough for a good view.
