B&H has a one day deal on the TSN-883. You can get the scope for $1700 or the scope with the 25-60x zoom for $2200. That's $1000 off.

Click on "Build Bundle" to add the eyepiece.

That’s a great deal on a New Scope body from a Authorized Dealer, one of the lowest new prices I have seen. They are a quick shipper, nice to deal with. I have never had any problems with the many transactions I have had with them over the years.

An amazing bargain on the TSN- 883 with the new zoom for anyone visiting Japan . . .

I just bought a perfectly legitimate TSN-883 plus WZ-11 zoom lens for the amazing price of a smidgeon under £1,600 from the giant BIC Camera chain in Japan.

To get the final price deduct 10% from the list price (sales tax is not payable if you live outside Japan) and astonishingly, when I went to the store I got another 5% discount for paying with a credit card!

The price was so good I also got the carrying case and a Manfrotto 700 RC2 tripod head with the same levels of discounts.

The only downside is that the website did not work well and I had to visit two different stores in Tokyo to collect the various bits.

This new set-up deliver a wonderful first day:

1. Watching Japanese Grosbeaks, Hawfinches and Dusky Thrushes coming down to a stream to drink
2. Watching a cracking male Copper Pheasant going about his business for an astonishing 30 minutes! (NB pic not through the scope)
3. First views of a Japanese Flying Squirrel emerging from its roosting box before gliding away.

Cheers
Mike
