New Product Introduction Today From Swarovski ? (2 Viewers)

Sorry, NL :-O:-O:-O

This is not a joke (regarding the NL).

The worldwide dealers pré order is bigger than the max year production of the NL.
I ordered on the same day as the launch was and expect (hope) to get them on September first. Delivery time for the follow up orders will be..........???

Glad I pre-ordered early also. If you wait until they are shipping it might be 8 to 12 months before you get a pair because all the pre-orders will be filled first! It sounds like the NL is going to be like the new Corvette. You can't just go in the dealership and buy one. You have to get on a pre-order list and some people have waited a year for their car.

I do hope that you are high up in the queue for the pre orders with your supplier! Otherwise how will you cope if you've missed the cut and have to make do with your only pair of Swarovski EL SV 8 x 32s for months on end. Perhaps you might consider a contingency plan and pre order a 32 mm SF just in case?
 
That is not a bad idea! I don't know if I could tolerate a Zeiss SF 8x32 for 6 months though.;) Fortunately my supplier said I was first on the list so as soon as Swarovski ships so I should have one before Jan.( I spotted him a few bills to move me up to the top of the list). It makes me wonder if I should have ordered an NL 10x42 and NL 12x42 because if everybody has to wait months for them you might have been able to sell them for some profit to the well-heeled buyers that didn't want to wait. Car dealers do that all the time.

Dennis, you should just order an 8x42, 10x42, and a 12x42 NL, as well as a 8x32 SF, and a C8 Corvette, as well as a Canon R5 (they've already flagged possible supply issues). It shouldn't cost too much quick quick money to jump to the top of the queue. That way you can flip all of those for a handsome profit (providing the zombie apocalypse due to COVID-19 doesn't fully kick off).

Then if you really want something of value you can talk to me about my classic Zen-Ray ED3 ..... fair play though - I'm not even contemplating less than six figure offers, and even then given the rate that they are appreciating at, I'm probably crazy ! :bounce: to give them away even at that price :king: :smoke:








Chosun :gh:
 
Dennis,

With regard to the warranty, the most important issue for US buyers is whether or not they were imported through SONA. So, the vendor should be asked to verify that prior to purchase.

For those of you that are biting at the bit to get the new Swarovski NL pure this eBay seller said they will have them in stock in 2 weeks from today. In other words by August 1. They are selling them at retail and have all three magnifications. So if you want to get yours before anybody else here is your chance. Their feedback at 98.2% is only fair so it might be somewhat risky but you always have ebay to back you up in case of problems.

Don't promote a seller like this. The earliest availability in the US is Sept. 1st from Swarovski retailers.

There are no sellers that would have anything earlier.

Dennis the Menace, don't spread this stuff, and for those wanting to purchase any new Swarovski optic, buy only from an authorized retailer.

Dennis,

I wonder how long will you like the NL 8X42 when you receive them, I have a feeling that you prefer the 8X32 format - (like when you preferred the 8X32 SV over the 8.5X42 SV), and that you will end up with the SF 8X32.

I agree. In fact as a long time procrastinator, I'll just wait a year anyway. Funny thing: if you wait long enough you probably won't want it.

I do not have a Porsche Cayman, for instance.

I will get the NL 8x42 for now. If I like the NL 8x32 better I will buy it and sell the NL 8x42. I like the sharper edges of Swaro's better than Zeiss's and in this case the bigger FOV. Just personal preference.
