Re: Best binoculars under $1000

I researched this thoroughly last year. I had to narrow my search to those optics that had an interpupilary distance of 74mm or greater because of my wide set eyes. There may be more options available to you if you do not have this requirement.

I went with the Vortex Razors. I was able to pick up one of the last 2010 close-out models (10x50) for $489. An awesome buy!!!

Yes, the Swaro's are no doubt nice, but for the $$$, they are not THAT MUCH nicer than my Razor's.

One other thing....You can't beat the customer service at Vortex. I recently broke on of the arms of the "Bino-loc" accessory that holds open the bino's at your interpupilary distance setting. I called them up and they said they would have a new one in the mail to me that day. Didn't charge me anything....not even shipping.

Re: Best binoculars under $1000

Thanks for the thoughts everyone...seems like the options are endless.

I came across this review below - the translation is pretty rough but some useful information nonetheless.

Under sponsors link, click on the Minox open box sale at Camera Land.
You won't find a better pair then Minox HG's for the price Doug has them at.
