All depends on how much your going to pack it around. The 85 is big but the extra light gathering is great. If your glassing from the truck mainly I would go 85. I like the 65 since it’s not as bulky/ big and is excellent to use and much easier to vary. Both are clear and great glass
I use a 65, but I backpack into places a lot and don’t need anymore weight. I agree with the above post.....it depends on how much you expect to be packing it around on your back.
I’m an STS guy though.
Hey thanks for the input
just a thing i noticed comparing specs on vortex and swaro is that the swaro 85mm is only 1.5 ounces heavier than the vortex razor 65mm im running right now so it may not be too much bulkier other than the larger objective obviously. I’m just pretty disappointed in my razor when i zoom all the way into to really look at a critter, the picture starts getting dark quickly (in decent lighting conditions).
Kinda why im leaning towards the 85mm but have never had the privilege to look thru a swaro to tell the difference
