Nice one, Owen. Do you have a favorite monopod?

I stumbled into this today at Amazon

Bushnell Elite 8x43 Waterproof/Fogproof PC3 Magnesium Binocular
$456.98 with free shipping (from Amazon)
Model number: 62-4208

Looks like the previous revision.

The current Elite 8x43 on the Bushnell web site is 63-0843: "New rugged style highest light transmission, plus new 4-position twist-up eyecups."

i.e. it seems to have a newer version of the dielectric mirror coating and new eyecups.

Obviously trying to compete with the Promaster ED and Hawke ED (though this is not ED)

EDIT: This also qualifies (as it has Rainguard) for the Free Jacket promotion (waterproof, breathable, quiet, "Real Tree" camo).
