Did the ones they pictured have single or double hinges? The double hinged version was discontinued in 2010. The single hinged one is not discontinued. I received a new 10x32 EDG II from Nikon this past summer and they told me they had to get it from Japan so I think they are still making them! Other dealers like Camera Land in New York City have listed them as "Special Order-Delayed Delivery" for a couple of years now.
