Indeed but I can't afford that option! I've been birding in Iceland this week with my wife's 8x30s as my 10x42s are back with Swarovski at the moment and I don't think I have missed the extra power,...

Yes I have had a message saying that they are now available. They cost 5.99 for common birds, 8.99 for scarce and another 8.99 for rare. Has anyone bought them yet? If so what do you think?

Just get a mac. You won't regret it and if you do you can install Windows on it anyway. Mine is dual boot and Windows runs better than my son's supposedly more powerful machine.
