We are getting Pentax XW eyepieces back in stock. The first few 14mm and 20mm are here. More focal lengths will be coming in over the next few weeks.

Is this going to be your last shipment of the XW eyepiece line? Have heard that the XW's are being discontinued. Thanks..

Bill

My understanding is that the XW30 and XW40 will be extremely difficult to get, if not discontinued completely. The rest of the line (3.5-20) is fine and we will be able to stock them on a regular basis.

That's good to know. There have been some posts about the XW line in the eyepieces forum that said Pentax USA confirmed that the 1.25" XW's will be discontinued.

Yes I was happy to see they were back. I had to make sure with my Rep that everything was true. I know there has been a lot of confusion about what is going on with the XW line.

I am awaiting to hear about the XW 3.5. We have a few on order but they have yet to arrive. I am hoping in the next few weeks to have them.
