I'm in the market for a premium 2" diagonal and the Baader Clicklock Zeiss prism model has caught my eye. My one reservation (other than the insane price) is the lack of an EP stop, per Bill P's excellent write-up.
Can anyone who has experience with this diagonal let me know if this is something to be concerned about? I occasionally use 1.25" EPs with a 1.25" TV 2x barlow (~15 years old, not sure if they've changed) and the last thing I want is to scratch the prism of a $500 diagonal.
FWIW I usually use a TV Equalizer, which is a hi-hat style adapter, but will occasionally use a non-elevating adapter too.
PS It seems strange to me that Baader would exclude an EP stop from their most premium diagonal, when they're included on all (?) of their less expensive models. What could be the rationale for this?
