  • New Zeiss dialyt spotter...

    Came across a bit more info on this new scope.
    http://www.outdoorlife.com/videos/ou...dialyt-spotter

    This looks like the spotter that some of us minimalists have been longing for for a long time. This things looks light and managable enough to leave those binos at home!

    Eagle optics has them in stock; any chance you might have a few demos at Cameraland soon, Doug?

          Looks very similar to my old leupold straight 30X. Looks just about perfect and would go well with a Gitzo Traveler.

            Man, I know guys. It's really killin' me.
            I'm just trying to think of a slick way of telling the wife about this new 'necessity.'
            She saw me jumping around when she saw I drew Kodiak goat, and she congratulated me; I almost ambushed her right then.

            Forest, I liken the dialyt to my trust little Nikon XL II. Just a bit bigger and with the world class glass and adjustments.

              Would be a darn shame to "misplace that Nikon" and have to get a new scope to replace it for your goat hunt.

                  Found some excellent blogging about this scope here:
                  http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=164786
                  Some of it gets a bit technical, but overall pretty informative.

                  Biggest nock is that this Zeiss doesn't have the FL glass. Personally, I think for the ruggedness and great price I can live without it. It sure looks like Zeiss built this sucker exclusively for the mountain hunter.

                  Last post says that they are now in at Cameraland.
                  I imagine Doug will post eventually...but with thirty (?) forums to post on... <grin> Dunno how he keeps up.

                    Frank I got one on the way from Doug. I see you sold your Nikon, are you going to upgrade to one as well????

                      Absolutely, Steve. Scraping a few bucks together and just about ready to make the call.
                      Looks like you'll be the first to post a review.

                      Saw your Pentax listed....great glass in its own right. Great deal too!

                        That thing looks sweet and I just could not resist. Sold my old Winny 375 and got new Zeiss spotter in the deal.

                              Nice Steve, maybe this summer we can hit a couple training hikes together and compare that new Zeiss side by side with my Pentax PF65 EDA II with the WO Zoom I have on it. I bet that's gonna be one nice spotter.
