Yes I saw that, pretty low price compared to what I usually see them go for and no pics of the lens - additionally I found out that the seller did not respond to any questions, so buyer beware.

I could not get an answer either, but I was following them closely ... That's a great price regardless.

I almost bit on that. Pics weren't good quality, zero feedback.... I left it alone.

Bushnell Legend M 10x42 on EBay for $199. That’s the best price I’ve seen on the 10x. Has anyone seen a better price?

Today only B&H Photo has the Pentax 8x21 UCF R Binocular for $35. Nice little stocking-stuffer for kids.

The Zeiss FL T* 10x56 were a scam

I bookmarked the page and waited until he got feedback. It was negative. He never shipped the binoculars. I hope the buyer gets their money back from ebay.

Thanks Doug, but I already read the specs from your site. I am plagued with inferior eye relief on darn near every 8x32 class glass I've ever tried, and I've tried quite a few. Seems the specs and actual use do not "jive" for me. Maybe I've got a weird face?

If you get them and they do not work for you of course we will take them back. No issue there.
As far as a "weird face" that's your call :)

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://www.60xcustomstrings.com/cus...ossbow/strings
Thanks for the heads up. This was a great deal. That's what I love about this forum is everyone helping out other members.

Not binoculars but B&H has the KOWA 883 body for $2099. One has to add it to the cart to see this price.

You are comparing to the regular Trailseeker. The Trailseeker ED is only a little bit less on B&H compared to the manufacturer.
