Update on availability of Kasai eyepieces
Posted 01 December 2012 - 11:57 AM
"Although it took time to settle down the production arrangement, everything seems to be going smoothly now.
Following Orthos will be available middle of December - OR5/OR7/OR9/OR12. OR6/OR18 will be available sometime next year.
All APs except 05 are available. AP05 will be next year.
So please stop accepting order for OR6, OR18 and AP05 for a while.
EWV32 is now available. But no KASAI name printed on eyepiece. "
Please note that the above is independent of what we or other Kasai dealers might have in stock now or in the near future.

I don't follow these threads too closely, does this mean that they're not ending production on KO's in the forseeable future?

The KKs indeed are! Production has ended, and what we and other dealers around the world have left are the last of this clan. This news came out a couple of weeks ago, and there's been a big run-up on these in Japan, pretty much wiping out our chances of getting more.

I also had the 32mm 60 degree 2in Konig that UO sold that was made by the Kasai folks. Kicking myself on selling that one. The 16mm UO Konig was a sweet little eyepiece, you also rarely see them come up for sale. It is really sad seeing Kasai leave the business but like someone else said, everyone is entitled to retire at some point.
