    Do think once the S&B is available in volume (ish) we will see more Luep 20x50s coming on to the sh market or do you think people will hang on to them?

    Dunno, the price of some Leups went up when the S&B seemed delayed... but I suspect it will be a 1/2 way house still, and probably hold.

    I guess it depends on how many s&b can produce.

    Can't wait to get my mitts on one for a review...

    No doubt about it as it was over two years ago overall it was the best. Mechanically thats what they should produce but optics should be a lot better for the money. Hollies Vari x 3 will beat it in low light!
    S&B will not produce or release until they are confident it is the best they can make it, but a few top people have gone their own way and departed.

    Well, I was impressed at the one Jon showed me... loved it's super wide field of view, even on 50x...

    Would be nice to test the final production model.

    Got some resolution charts in the works for scope comparisons...

    Send Kilty my way :D

    well never got a look cos craig was setting it up on the rifle . but it at least looks the part on the zenith . BUT i asked barry what it cost after the dust had settled and he said that it was £ 2000 . PLUS the sidewheel . PLUS the sunshade .not cheap . and he said it without crying . i should say this is the illum version . ??? HOLLY PS i think i will stick with the lupe 20+50 . PSS and what i said about the price of 20+50s going down . noway hosay .
