Re: Vortex Razor 20-60 or 16-48?
Of course the 20-60x85mm is going to draw in more light, but the 16-48x65mm has a much wider field of view on all identical powers when compared to its bigger brother.
Just depends on your needs. Smaller model is lighter and steadier and can be used on smaller lighter weight tripods. You have to have a good quality heavy duty tripod if you want to effectively use big glass with high zoom.
So if packing into high country on your back, you will save weight on both the optic and the tripod with the smaller model.
But if using horses, motorized vehicles or even walking on flatter ground, the larger model may be better for extra zoom and low light capability
Be confident and know your abilities.
Whether you think you can make the shot, or you think you canít, you are right.
