Meopta closed their plant in Long Island, NY in October 2017. They were supposed to move it to Pasco County in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Is there any news on that front?

I have heard that Zeiss turned the SP prism's upside down in order to move the center of gravity back in the SF. Please correct me if this is wrong.

I wonder if they will reverse the SP Prisms in the 8x32 SF like they did in 42mm SFs? That will have an effect on their design. I would also expect a significantly wider FOV.

Yes. That is correct. I believe Leica had 2 versions of their current Trinovid line.

My guess is that even Nikon's Monarch HG line is made by Kamakura.

Yes, they are made in Japan.
