The item mentioned in post #73 has gone. Might be old fashioned looking and with a yellow cast but at least someone remembered old Habichts are hard to break...

Carmarthen Cameras have a few more used models in including Nikon 7x50, 9x35 and Pentax 8x30 porros.

If they've still got one in stock the advertised price at Cameraworld for Nikon 8x32 SE looks good.

PS Viking have the 6.5x32 MD back under 100 till the end of the week.

It does look good for 180.

Thanks for pointer to the Nikon E11, ClarkWGriswold.

I have been agonising over these, but no longer......:)


I'd also ordered a pair of Viking 6.5x32 MD bins this morning (still <100 at Viking). Time to cool off, I think.

Zeiss conquest 1025 T* 249, two pairs last time I was there at Minsmere (new).

Only problem for some is they focus anti-clockwise to infinity.

I notice that Park Cameras have a 250 cashback deal on some Nikon binoculars, meaning for example that it's possible to buy the fantastic EDG 7x42 for only a little over 1000:

That is a great price. It seems to me that a lot of UK dealers are offering big discounts on new Nikons lately, from this model down, and especially the Monarch range, must have an impact the value of used models I would think.

Jessop's 1042 MK II waterproof roof prism nitrogen filled binoculars are now half price at 34.99.
If you picked out a good one it might be worth having. Cheap enough.

Also 20 - 60x 80 mm Jessop's spotting scope now halfprice at 69.99. Again a selected one might be quite good.

Fotosense have an extra 10% off Vanguard binoculars today ; some of the range still attract the manufacturer's 40.00 cashback offer and the retailer's extra 10% is in addition to this, all with free shipping.

Vanguard Spirit 8x42 ED http://www.fotosense.co.uk/vanguard-...binocular.html

Vanguard Endeavor 8x42 ED, now under 200.00 http://www.fotosense.co.uk/vanguard-...binocular.html.

Add the Voucher Code TOD10 at the checkout.

Fotosense also have 'close-out' prices on the remaining stock of Burris Colorado binoculars.

Tip : to squeeze the last drop out of it login via Topcashback to scrape a final 2.1% out of the bottom of the barrel, here ... http://www.topcashback.co.uk/fotosense/

Uttings have Nikon HG L 8x42 at 700.00, and Nikon HG L 10x42 at 750.00.

Cheapest HG L 8x42 elsewhere appears to be 850.00 today.

Not only for the UK, but for all of us European Unionists: on fleabay.de a reputable German dealer offers the Nikon 12x50 SE for 599 euros, brand new and with the latest coatings. Delivery is fast. I know because I just received one :-) Just search for Nikon 12x50 SE and it appears at the top of the list.
