Vortex Viper HD 20-60x80 VS Leupold Kenai 30x, 25-60x80mm HD

I put off getting my first spotter last year but am ready now. I am struggling with what to get however and would sure appreciate any assistance you can share. I do have a budget of about $800-ish max that i need to stick to. I like what I read about the Kenai, but am struggling to find real reviews from people who have them. It feels good to me inside the store. It is pretty compact for an 80, it seems to me anyway. People seem to also like this Vortex as well.

I would love to hear reviews on both of these and any others that you would suggest in this price range.

Thanks, TS

A friend of mine just purchased a Kenai a couple of months ago.  He did so because he drew a coveted Bighorn Sheep tag this year and needed it for scouting trips.  He has really liked the Kenai so far.   The fixed-mag eyepiece is his favorite.
What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?

I've heard great stuff about the Vortex. I dont have one so I can't give any first hand reviews. I have had 2 pairs of bino's and a Viper PST scope that I really like. And you can't beat the warranty.

The Kenai felt good to me. I only saw it in the store as well. I have yet to handle the Viper spotter. I think it will definitely make a good comparison. Any update on which you went with? I've been considering one of these as well.
