Vortex Optics Diamondback Spotting Scope Review
Last Updated on
A quick look inside the Vortex Optics Diamondback Spotting Scope reveals outstanding optics. First of all, the 80mm objective lens offers zoom from 20x to 60x.
Anything beyond 90 meters, no matter if you’re using the maximum magnification level, the quality of the image starts to suffer immensely. The gigantic 80mm objective lens provides the Diamondback with more than enough light for optimal operation.
The optics are also fully multicoated, which makes using this scope at night a real treat. You are limited to some extent by the inability to maintain a good focus on larger distances, but it will still do the job quite well.
Vortex Optics also included a Porroprism design, coupled with BaK-4 prism glass for maximum clarity and light transmission.
The inside of the scope is nitrogen purged, giving it that maximum fogproof feature. The Vortex Optics Diamondback Spotting Scope is waterproof as expected, as the lenses are O- ring sealed.
Sleek contours make the scope sit in your palm firmly and securely. A central focus knob is ergonomically placed on a spot where your palm would naturally rest, so focusing those shots is done in an instant.
