My latest acquisition, purchased for a ridiculous low price. Initial impression that it had been repainted from the site photos, but in real life, its the original paint, so in superb condition both cosmetically and optically. The web photo looked unusually bright.

Very nice. It looks like the rubber is a bit past being helped by Armor All

Very true, but compared to most, the rubber is in excellent condition

Nice find !!
I have a pair, they take a little "fiddling" to get the focus correct, BUT these are possibly the best optics that Zeiss has produced
Enjoy !!
