'Unknown delivery time' ~ translation ~ costs four and a half grand, so no one bought any, so we don't stock them.

Well, the wonderful ~fit & finish~ look like the Oberwerk and others that must come from the same factory in China --- Although I'm just guessing that, nevertheless convinced the origin is identical cept for external cosmetics like color, logo, etc. Nothing wrong with that, just an observation.

 

I've bought and used plenty of those, and reverted to just using as casual finder scopes applications, etc. Even at $4.5K, you're not going to get high-end performance for 6-inch binos. That would kick in around double the price.

 

Is it worth a mere $4.5K --- I think so! Just don't expect premium performance.

 

The APM improved 100mm, their superb 120, and their 150 ED APO cost more, and worth it.

 

Hers's one of my much smaller ones (I have both the 45o and 90o versions quick-swap) as finders on my 36-inch scope.
