They look identical to me. I would go with the Vipers because I like Vortex as a company and am not very familiar with Kowa. Their spotting scopes are excellent but that's all I know.

Two weeks.

Seriously I don't know, best thing would be to email someone like cameraland.

As far as price goes don't the 8x32 euros retail for about 700-800 and the meopro 8xs 400? They are probably...

Vortex has done a very good job of offering optics at every price point and the diamondbacks are no exception, not to mention they have a no-questions-asked warranty so if your kids break them or...

I would like to hear an answer to this as well, hopefully someone will chime in. If it's made in Japan then it should be a deal worth jumping on while they can still be found.

I'd get the 6x Yosemite or the Vortex ones (the porro style, I want to say Raptor). They're the only cheap binoculars I've tried that actually work.

I know this thread is a month old but:

The Viper is made in Japan by Kamakura, Talon is Chinese. While the Vipers might have a slightly narrower field of view the built quality and glass quality are...

I'm happy with mine as well. Lately I've been trying to find a deal on a set of 10x binos and unless I spend near a grand I can't get anything with a noticeably better image than these meopros. These...

That's interesting. I recently went through this with a dealer I buy from and one of the things he mentioned was that Leupold was moving everything to China. The BX-2 Acadia and Mckinley were the...

All leupold bx- binoculars are Chinese, they have a deal with a Chinese firm to produce everything.

You're right it is a nice little bino, certainly better than everything else I looked at for 200 or so dollars. I have mixed emotions on the case and strap though, I will try and post pics of what I...

I don't see how they'd be worse than anything else on the market for 400 or 500 dollars. They were OEM'd by Light Optical out of Japan and backed up by Leupold so you know the warranty will always be...
