First, thank you for taking the time to evaluate these eyepieces and write up your impressions. A very interesting and thoughtful review!
Now a question: Do you know if any of these eyepieces are actually unique Olivion designs? Many of them look to me like rebranded versions of eyepieces available from Astro-Tech, GSO, Orion, etc. That's not bad if they are, because those eyepieces are generally solid performers at their price points, but is there anything different in the Olivion line that should stand out?

Dr. Mordius.....$63 is the price I found for the HDs, the 80s are $74-$190, and the zooms about $269.

The Olivon High Definition 58 Degree FOV eyepieces look like TMB clones, identical to the Barsta 1.25"-58 degree wide angle eypiece and Sky-Watcher Planetary 58° UWA 1.25" Eyepieces and I think other than graphics to the TS Optics HR Planetary UWA - 60°.
Agreed. That was the first thing I noticed that they looked like clones of the TMB Planetaries. The 80° 30mm also looks like the same one sold by 1rpd, Moonfish, etc.
