Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear and rock solid This is a great piece of glass. I actually have the older model from last year, but the clarity is only improved on this new model. The focus is very simple and the sun shade comes in handy on those bright days or early mornings glassing while the sun is coming up. This is a heavy scope, but I haven't compared it much to other brands in this category. It's going to increase your pack weight for sure, plus you'll have to be sure to get a trip sturdy enough to handle the weight here. Regardless, if you are a Western hunter and you spend a lot of time glassing, you are going to accept the additional weight as it is going to pay off in dividends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will recommend vortex products to anyone with any pricepoint since getting this spotting scope, I have used it on 5 Nevada hunts. Antelope, deer, and 3 elk hunts. The one that stands out the most is our bull tag. We were watching a small herd of elk on the border of Great Basin National Park after the sun had been down for a while (the border runs along the top of the mountain). It makes a huge difference being able to watch these animals while it is getting dark. The ergonomics of this scope is amazing. It feels like it is just another limb of your body. To top it off, you cannot beat VIP warranty that vortex offers for all of their optics for no charge. That is a major selling point for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hunting Tool Bought this spotter to help cover more area at greater distances to hunt Coues deer in AZ. Paired with my phoneskope, I was able to save my legs and see deer over 2 miles away that I would have never known what they were without it. I was able record some amazing footage while scouting and hunting. Also, at the range I didn't need a buddy to help spot for me when shooting distances beyond 500 yds. The Razor and Phoneskope once again helped me know what adjustments I needed to make to get dialed in. If you're on the fence about the weight between the 60mm and the 85mm, do yourself a favor and go with the 85mm. You will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor Sharp If you like to hike like me, then the new Razor HD 27-60x85mm angled spotting scope is something you need to have. Glassing entire sections of mtns ranges knowing exactly where I want to go is a game changer with this scope. I am most impressed with the new Razors ability to continue to have a sharp, crisp, and clear image all the way to full magnification. The amazing sharpness of this optic, combined with its incredible performance in low light conditions, makes this a scope everyone needs. Thank you Vortex for making products of this quality, at a price point that the every day common hunter can afford. Thank you Vortex Optics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Can't Beat it For the Price I went to a long range shooting school two years ago with my son. We shot as teams and learned the roles of shooter/spotter working together. One of the many things we practiced was to watch for bullet trace. I was using a good spotting scope but all the instructors were using Razor HD spotting scopes. I borrowed one of them for awhile and what a difference. We were shooting out to 1200+ yards, and the Razor HD was crystal clear at all distances. I gave my spotting scope to my son and bought one of these - worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope with Great Durability I bought this scope not to long ago and only used it to scout Spring Turkeys and to Scout whitetail just before how season started. I had great success with this scope. Using it in the Midwest it proved plenty durable whether I was spotting from the truck or on top of a brushy hill. I never had an issue with the scope fogging up or not being able to clearly see what I was looking at. The true test of the scope was these last couple weeks ago when it was used in Colorado to spot some Muleys. I loaned it to a friend and he brought it back all dusty with nothing but good things to say. He decided he needed to buy his own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor HD 27-60X85 Recently purchased the next generation Razor HD 26-60X85 angled spotting scope. As an outfitter you can imagine my pickiness when it comes to optics and like every Vortex optic I have purchased I am simply amazed. The Razor HD 26-60X85mm is well worth the monetary investment. It is super clear all the way through to include the edging. Is new sleek design makes packing it much easier then the previous generation. You gain nothing in weight to previous generation design. Tried and true research and design has made it possible for Vortex to top their previous HD generation models. Would highly recommend this product to any hunter but a must for western style hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The precious Truth be told I don't even know if it was the Razor spotting scope through which I watched 10 wolves devour the carcass of a mountain goat my buddy shot the previous afternoon. I was sad because when the hunt ended, my other buddy, the scope owner, would take it with him and I would be left with a pair of binoculars that are to distance sight what colonial spectacles are to modern glasses. Wanting is what you do before you experience and see a void in your life. Need is what you experience when everything comes into focus and you see clearly. I clearly need this product. Fortunately I live in Alaska, closer to Santa Claus, and Christmas isn't too far in the distance.

What size lens filter fits the front of the 85mm HD Razor scope? I understand, for instance, that some 85mm scopes take an 86mm filter...

Asked by: Kimbo
You will need a filter that is 86 mm P-1.00.

The eyepiece is removable and replaceable with the other one that you make. Can you describe the "mount" or "attachment" so I can determine if I can use any of my existing eyepieces from other telescopes or camera mounts. Is it a standard size/shape?

Asked by: Paul
The eyepiece is not a standard size or fit, it is specific for our eyepieces.

What soft case can be used with this scope? Amazon is pointing me towards "Razor HD Black Fitted Spotting Scope Case, Angled". The picture looks like this is for the other "Razors" that have a small focus knob vs large body ring. Will it fit/work?

Asked by: Paul
The cases for sale on our website are for the new style Razor HD spotting scopes.

Whats the light transmision on the spotting scope in %?

Asked by: Edurdin
We do not publish light transmission %, because there is not an industry standard for measuring light transmission so when you compare products you are not getting a good comparison. This spotting scope does perform extremely well in low light situations however.

Hi I Wish to buy the new Vortex Razor 27-60 X 85 spotting scope. The zoom 27-60 X  eye piece is removable so could you please advise me what alternative lenses are suitable for this scope. Does the scope accept standard telescope lenses of 11/4"?
Asked by: Pommy John
We offer one alternative eyepiece for that spotting scope, it is a long eye relief eyepiece that is a fixed 23x magnification. I am not aware of any eyepieces that will fit that spotting scope.

what is the appropriate adapter to mount a Panasonic G7 micro four thirds camera to this scope? Does it mount to the ocular so that the zoom is still preserved, or does the ocular need to be removed?
