It is quite unusual for a major optics house to maintain such a large discount for an extended period. Inventory clearance for product discontinuation or for a new model should not take that long. However, binoculars are a hobby activity for Canon, so perhaps different standards apply.
The question is whether to take advantage of this aberration, an alpha glass at 40% of the price of comparables.

Agree WG. After watching in the shadows for a couple of years, it's the reason why I moved on it in December!!!
