Found a "New" PF 65ED-A II for under $320 Ddelivered !!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/251860488499...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

The third listing photo spooked me since it looked like the molded letters were not gold embossed... screaming counterfeit ... but it was the lighting angle. All photos were of the same item, and the next photo caught the reflections.
Also have an XW14 eyepiece on the way.

Very nice! The Ricoh box may mean a fairly recent manufacture. Paired with an XW14 should bring many good views. Congrats.

The 65mm EDll looks like a very nice scope, would anyone here know how it would compare to a Kowa TSN 663m Prominar? They seem so close in specs but quite different in pricing.
