New Product Introduction Today From Swarovski ?

Although it does not seem to be have been noticed (or at least commented on) by others, apparently there will be a new product launched today:

From Jim on 24th June:

And more significantly on the 28th:

It is even more fascinating, since they will directly jump to generation 7, so do not keep your fingers crossed since that inhibits the use of your computerboard.

Gijs,

We've had pincushion then flat field so the logic would be barrel distortion? ;-)

8x32 TV Field-Pro (TV for Tonnenförmige Verzeichnung)

Much more seriously I'll be interested whether they keep the FP attachment system, revert to the old method, or modify the FP system / completely replace it with something newer.. I don't mind it but it does lead to twisted cords whereas what I have on new SLC 10x42 is simple and very effective so long as the user remembers to push down the sleeves to lock the straps into place near near the binocular rectangular metal attachment rings. (Can you call it a ring if it is rectangular? You know what I mean!)

I hope that you will not share this message with anybody, but Swarovski succeeded in the production of wave shaped prisms, so light waves can pass them fully in phase.

Do we know if it's a 42 or 32 model there introducing..?

I would imagine it's the 42, with a new Body design, Lighter, more centrally located larger focus wheel.
Wider fov, greater light transmission...

Cheers Tim

Swarovski NL - further details tomorrow (1st July). Shape looks curious, perhaps a porro (perger?) or IS binocular? Appears to be a 10x42 model from the post on the SO facebook page.

If you can look through bins with 70°, sharp to the edge, and 91%, you will not discuss about the design

The 'lowish' transmission figure is likely due to the amount of glass required to achieve those large AFov's.

Also Swarovski's never feel 'cheap' in the hand - for that you'll have to grab a Zeiss SF .......
