miyauchi made a 22x60 also-but they never seemed to take off

the 15 or 16x70s proved much more popular by nikon, fuji, or clones

They come up on astromart and the like very occasionally, but seem to be getting less common. Owners rave about them so the prices tend to stay firm when they do appear.
