Good edge focus.

Can you elaborate about those recent units? Is it a quality control or a design issue.

I just picked up a Nikon 20x120 Model II for $350 delivered off of good old ebay. See Auction 7315604606, the seller which was an estate liquidator, had no idea about binoculars, and it took 3 emails begging them to better describe. What ultimately arrived was a very sound optically and mechanically bino with badly damaged sunshields.... They are near perfect optically except for the coating on the inside of the objectives is blotchy, I may send them out and have the coating removed. They are spot on for collimation, but I have to rig up a mount for them before I do anything really serious. My lucky day....

no idea, sorry - only third hand information. I just checked the forums, but could not find the thread. But I remember the content, because these comments drove me away from the Nikon and towards the KOWA.

$350!?! Not bad at all. Is there a picture of these bins?
