Came across a couple of bino's on sale. Bushnell L Series 10x42 for $119 and Vortex Diamondback 10x42 for $129. The Vortex are in store only so not sure if I will be able to locate them but the Bushnell's are online. How do the Bushnell's compare to the Diamondback's?

I love my Vortex Diamondback 10x42 binos. I'm sure the Bushnells are fine, but my experience with lower-priced optics is that Vortex wins almost every time over Nikon/Leuopold/Bushnell. Once you get to the more expensive stuff, that's where the other players really shine.

I believe you can't go wrong with the Vortex Diamondback. I own a pair and couldn't be happier for the price point. I hunted last Sunday with my brother-in-law in a double stand. His first words after using my Diamondbacks was "Wow - these things are amazing!" I would go with Vortex.

Thanks fellas, I wasn't able to score the deal on the Diamondbacks. Hopping that they will come on sale for Cyber Monday somewhere.

Anyone know what the difference between the Vortex Diamondback Classic and Non Classic? Found the Classic one's on sale for $129 but the non classics are $229.

I'm sure the classics are what I have. They're normally $199 or so, but Cabela's runs them for $129 every black Friday it seems.
