Recently bought a pair of Vortex Viper 8x32s from Doug at CL that are still on sale for a killer price of $339. I've been playing with them now for about 2 weeks. They're great ... bright, crisp images, focus is quick and precise, only 4 ounces heavier that my prior 8x30s, good objective lens caps and rain guard. Fit my hands well. All told, I'm impressed.
