Cameraland NY has demo Noctovids... I wish I wasn't embroiled in a few rifle projects or I might have the money to move on these...but since I don't...I hope someone here does!

The link is to the 8X but there are 10x (and demo Geovids also)

Zeiss are running a "Winter Weeks" Cashback promotion on their Terra ED range:

Seems like €50 or 45 cashback until 16th January.

B&H has some decent markdowns on certain models at the moment. Standouts to me are Kowa Genesis x33 and x44 models $200 off and 10% off all Leica.

Welcome to Black Friday at Camera Land

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

If we have it, and you want it, it pays for you to give us a call, 516-217-1000. Personalized service, great pricing and a family owned and operated business since 1957. What more could anyone want? Most mfg's have MAP pricing that we cannot show sale pricing for which is why we request you just give us a call.

Looking forward to speaking with you

If there is anything you're looking for please give us a call at 516-217-1000. It is always our pleasure to speak with you. Some items are available in open box/demo units at reduced pricing. Always give a call to discuss options and what would be best for your needs

B&H is offering the Vanguard Endeavor II's at $200 (after rebate) today. For Vanguard Endeavor fans, that's a pretty good price.

I just received my 10x42s today and my initial impression is positive. The only thing i don't like is the focus wheel is stiff and focusing speed a little slow. The locking diopter works great and is a nice touch. I already submitted my rebate form online and Amazon is listed as one of the online retailers. Quite the deal for $142! https://promotions.vistaoutdoor.com/...7/90/EntryForm
Amazon has the 8x42 for $208 now (at least at this moment).

I switched to Legend M's for my car and home bins when those were dirt cheap after rebate. My main issue is the focus wheel in those as well. One pair is alright, but the other is super stiff. So much so that I've thought about seeing if it can be covered under warranty.

It should be covered under warranty, I would be curious if they send you a new one, or perhaps send you an Engage model of the same configuration. If you send them in to Bushnell, let us know how it works out.

Tract is offering 10% off all optics except closeouts and demos. Good opportunity to save almost $70 on the newly updated Torics.

What is people's impression about how often Bean does the 25% off sale, on average?

Vanguard is offering a rebate on the Endeavor II's and IV's. $100 on the x42's and $80 on the x32's.

Currently Amazon has the 8X42 ED II's for $318 before rebate.

Optics Planet has the 10x42 ED II's for $359 before rebate, and I was able to find a 10% off coupon code on RetailMeNot to make them $324 before rebate.

These are the best prices I can recall seeing on the ED II's.

eBay store ASavings has the Bushnell Legend M 8x42 for $139 with free shipping. Not nearly as good as that rebate deal last year (I think my final price was under $100 after rebate), but still darn good for nice glass. I expect to see another 10-15% off coupon at eBay before Christmas as well.

Now that I own a pair, I can unequivocally say this is the best deal going in optics at the moment. I never thought I'd see an image quality like that for under $500, much less under $150. The Legend M 8x42's hang quite well with my Zeiss Conquest HD's and Swaro SLC's and my wife even selected the Legend M's over the Zeiss and Swaro's when given the choice.

Amazon is offering an additional 5% off the 8x42 Engage now. Final price after checkout is $128! As noted Bushnell CS told me the optics are the same as the M in a lighter frame. They also have a more advanced protective coating than the M. Both are oustanding values. Just depends on which style body you like better.

LL Beans 25% off sale end tomorrow. Cabelas has the Meopta Euro 8x32 for $675. The vortex Razor 8x42 for $675 and the Zeiss Conquest for $727! They are also offering free FedEx 2 day shipping. Might be today, Green Monday, only but I’m not sure about that.

The Cabelas deal gets even better. If you go through Active Junky you’ll get an additional 10 % rebate from them in a couple months. If you apply for a Cabelas visa you’ll get an additional $25 in club points which I think you can redeem at checkout. I know you can if you apply and buy at the store. Of course if you do that you can’t use the 10% Active Junky. Final price for the Conquests will be $630!

That’s it for today. I would love to take advantage of it. However I just had a $1,500 root canal and that tooth needs a $750 crown. Unfortunately they got the wrong tooth. The molar behind ic the real problem and needs to be removed and replaced with an implant for a mere 3k! No more whining but it’s seems to me I could buy a couple of Swaros and the Conquests for that! ��

Thanks for the heads up Upland. Do you have a link to Amazon's deal? I can't find it for under $200.
