New Kowa YF Porro's

Hello all:
I see that Kowa has a new Porro line called the YF, on the face of it they look to be similar to the Leupold Porro's..similar price and specs.
Anyone have a chance to look them over?
Thanks

Art,

Do a little search. I do believe that one of our forum members reviewed them a few months ago...Binoboy if I am not mistaken. He rated them very highly on build and optics.
