This is a story of two disappointed people - myself (potential buyer) and the seller. A few days ago, these showed up on Kijiji, in Gananoque, ON:
"Carl Wetzlar" 20x65 achromatic "Lumenized" binoculars with integral tripod mount. The ad doesn't mention the asking price, but I contacted the seller and she said "$200, but I'm willing to haggle". I said I was interested and we made plans to meet, but since the seller is 150 km from where I live, I was honest up front. I informed her that "Carl Wetzlar" was the house brand of K-Mart Canada, and while the bins she was selling looked like a top-range model, they were a mid-range to a bit above average Japanese brand, and that I would not be likely to offer anything close to $200 for them. I also stated that if they were indeed German 20x65 binoculars made in Wetzlar then I certainly would consider $200 Canadian to be a fair price.
The seller replied that they were quality German binoculars from Wetzlar, and that there was nothing Japanese about them. I sent her some links to posts on this forum and other sources that discussed the "Carl Wetzlar" brand and its provenance - all respectful and emphasizing the above average quality, but confirming their Japanese origin and association with KMart. Since then I have not received any replies to any further messages, nor any acknowledgement of my evidence for their origin.
Hence the two disappointed people - myself because I was genuinely interested in buying the binoculars, and the seller because the item she is selling turned out to be something less valuable than supposed.
