Vortex Diamondback 8x32 HD - Quality roof prism binoculars at an affordable price - latest HD Model
After seven years it was decided that the market leading Diamondback range needed an upgrade and the HD version saw just that.
Price versus performance has been fully maintained but aesthetically the new sleek new look has already drawn compliments without taking into account that this makes them really comfortable to hold.
Vortex Diamondback HD 8×32
The Diamondback HD is Vortex’s ‘next step-up’ from the Crossfire. This 32mm model is small and lightweight (438g 8×32 / 457g 10×32) and clad in tough green rubber armour. The Diamondback HD’s have enhanced, dielectric fully multi-coated lenses, giving a bright, clear image even in low light.
The field of view is very wide (8.1 deg 8×32 / 6.5 deg 10×32) and they focus down to an excellent 1.6m. All Diamondback HD binoculars are provided with a rainguard, lens caps, strap and a rugged cordura carry case.
When the Diamondback binocular range was updated in 2016 with improved optics, dielectric prism coatings and a 10% lighter body, there was really only one way for this latest version to go – the addition of HD glass. Retaining all improvements made last time around, the use of select HD glass lens elements to deliver exceptional resolution, cut chromatic aberration and provide outstanding colour fidelity, edge-to-edge sharpness and light transmission really pushes the Diamondback’s price to performance ratio to a new level.
The Diamondback HD’s are also covered by Vortex’s outstanding warranty:
Lifetime. Unlimited. Unconditional. Vortex will repair or replace the product in the event it becomes damaged or defective. Absolutely free—no matter the cause!
