When do you anticipate that the 6x30's will be available to place an order?

Will they be available at OSO, or only APM?

 

Best,

Markus,

I registered on your website. Will you place the pre-order product (6x30mm) on your website or tell me how to place an order?

CS,

John

Hey Markus, any status updates? I guess it's kind of paused now due to the virus?

Great Markus,

Earlier up in this thread, way back in September (post #95), you mentioned changing the design very slightly, to add 2 or 3mm of eye relief, at the expense of close focus...  Can you confirm that the production models should have a tiny bit more eye relief?  That would be great because it sounds like the prototype had not quite enough eye relief for use with eyeglasses.  I will probably get one regardless, but I'm just curious.

 

Dave

Thanks Markus,

 

I already sent you an email in back on August 31, asking to reserve a 6X30 for me.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.  :-)

Hi Markus,

 

Any update? 

 

I understand the delays are entirely beyond your control, and I presume it is all due to the global virus pandemic somehow.   Thank you.

 

PS.  On the web page in the specs it says "eye relief:  56mm-74mm."   You might want to fix that.

 

Dave

Hi Markus, 

The website shopping cart seems to be broken. 

 

I tried from different browsers on different computers today to update my cart and checkout, but the cart page is all white with missing buttons and links. 

 

There is no button to update items in the shopping cart, nor any way to even checkout and pay. 

 

Hope it gets resolved soon. 

 

Best..,
