    I'm holding out for the new Leica coming out this spring. It's a joint branding and industrial design venture involving Smucker's Jam, Ma Bell Telephone and Leica Sport Optics. It's called the "mother Smucker leica" bino.

    Rumors have it that the msrp will be $20,000, it will launch 4 years late and will have a 90 day warranty starting on the day you first observe the product on their website.

    I have Swarovski binos (2 sets) but I am thinking about getting Leica. To my eye the glass is a bit better. These Africa edition are tempting especially since I have the Swarovski Africa edition 10x compact binos. They have been with me on all my hunts lately. I also looked at their newest products at SCI and find the rangefinder model to be most interesting.
    Regards,
    Philip
