We know Meopta have been developing a replacement for the B1 for a while, and there is some expectation that we might see something this year. I might well be wrong, but I'd be surprised if they will replace all the model line in one go. I'm guessing the 12x50 HD might be around for a while yet.
I did not test the binocular lenses for water beading or anything, but as you know, it doesn't claim to have Meodrop coating. Sorry, I don't remember now what the roof spikes were like. I didn't do a lot of night testing, but I think I might have made a note if they were excessive.
