Not that the ES100 aren't great eyepieces, but it is a whole different 'aesthetic' as Greg Nowell would put it, one that I think you may long for again sometime soon. I have come across posts in the archives of you raving about XWs, from 5, 6, even 7 years ago. I think the smart money is on you re-acquiring the XW 10 soon and the XW 7 if you ever part with it and keeping the ES100 20mm.

Sell of the 7mm XW to Mike B. In this thread fourth from the bottom he is looking for one.

Now in truth I have looked through the 100mm eyepieces and I find that I usually am focused on the 70mm to 75mm area. Thus why I stick with my Pentax XW's. You have to decide what you want and think but by your purchases I think you've bought into the 100 degrees so then sell the Pentax XW. I provided a good lead above . . . ;)
