Down to two binocular choises

With all I have read and this sight and others I have come down to two binoculars to choose from and need your help and opinions

Vortex Razor 10x43 HD's or the 10x50 HD's

The Cabelas Euro 10x42 HD's


At first I was set on the Swarovski's EL's but cant not see spending $1500 more ...................Crap for that price difference I could but a brand new Cooper Rifle.............

So what would it be if it was you

Probably Vortex, but maybe not. I'd have to first article both and then decide.

One thing I'd add right away are the retractable rubber eye cups that wrap around the side of your eye. Makle a big differennce in excluding stray light and make glassing much easier.

I figured a pair of the 4x15 AI's would be your pick...

Well, there could be a market for a 4 x 15. Good field of view at 100. I'll call vortex and let'em know there is some interest.
