I have been going INSANE trying to figure this one out...actually, that's a lie because I'm already Insane. Up here in the Great White North we have a sort-of Pharamacy Superstore called London Drugs. They even have an Optical Department with some pretty cool stuff, including Binoculars and Spotting scopes.
Now, I just went back to double-check what I saw because I couldn't believe it the first 5 times that I saw it. A pair of Nikon WX 10X50 IF roof prism binoculars for the low, low, low price of only (drum roll please) *** $9,975.99 *** Yes, you read that right. Now can anyone possibly explain to me what could make these Binoculars worth that price?
*** - Vulcan optical glass?
*** - Klingon prisms?
*** - Romulan coatings?
*** - Dominion composite materials for the housings?
*** - Organian opticians ground and polished the glass?
Someone must know the reason for the exorbitant price for these "field glasses" - LOL!
Clear skies and keep looking up!
