Hello!

No, there is no source for that brand in Europe anymore, in Germany Optixxx.de webshop had it but discontinued more than 5 years ago, then the last version of 820 ED was available.

You can find some secondhand in auction sites maybe, but seems that 820 ED owners would't like to sell those amazing binos. Like me :-)

Cheers

Hi,

Swift Sport Optics might be worth contacting, assuming they are still in business. They have European importers listed on their website.

Good luck,
Ed

Not in Europe, but they're being offered here at a cost that might make it worth the trouble...

That is not the ED version and, FWIW, the latest models were never on the same quality plane as the earlier, highly coveted versions.
