Vortex Razor HD Spotting Scope

This scope is the latest entry from Vortex Optics into the realm of spotting scopes on the market today. Its design is for ruggedness and bright, clear images. It possesses a triple apochromatic lens to eliminate fringing and chromatic aberration. This scope comes equipped with dual focus. Here is what Bird Watcher’s Digest has to say about the new Vortex Razor HD Scope.

“Truly comparable to high-end European-made scopes, the Vortex Razor amazed us when we compared all the top scopes for our review in Bird Watcher's Digest (to appear November, 2009). This is a beautifully designed, bright, sharp, rugged scope. It comes with a 20-60 power zoom eyepiece. Angled-eyepeice design. We recommend it highly. It's the only scope with truly high-end optical quality at a moderate price.”

So many features go into making this wonderful scope. The Vortex HD System plays its part in eliminating degradation of resolution and producing color fidelity. This scope sports ArmorTek—a new chemically bonded optical lens multicoat to increase light transmission, color fidelity and image resolution. High definition (HD) glass and a special optical element configuration provide unmatched edge to edge detail and accuracy. It is affordably price.

Anyone out there have one/ tried one? I'm looking at Swarovski and Kowa - the standards...does the Vortex Razor 20-60x85 HD Spotting Scope compare? I gave away my Leica in CR and am now looking to replace...but should I pay for the Swar or Kowa or support Japan's high optical standards?

If the speed with which the Vortex Razor HD disappears off the shelf is any indication of its popularity, then I’d say it must be an excellent scope. It is difficult to find any vendor that can keep these in stock. I would suggest anyone considering a purchase should get the November issue of Bird Watcher’s Digest. BWD has just pronounced the Razor HD a “Best Value”. BWD is an independent third party whose analysis one can trust.
