At over 2K I'd imagine they have the aftermarket improved mounting rails that many users seem to have needed to retain zero?

Now IF they are selling again with OLED screen surely that’s good news?!

Just need to convince buyers they have a good back up service for repairs

Probably is Paul , just a bit of a price hike , looking at the photos the focus knob seems to sit at twelve o clock vertical , on the older 10x it was offset at about 10 o clock position ? Might be my eyes , if so Cliff , has it been redesigned ? any improvements anywhere ? are they old stock ? or have they been reintroduced by Flir ? or someone else ?

This could be interesting!
I would have thought the possibilities are:
a. These are old stock from various places that have been "found" and are up for sale
b. FLIR have put them back into production with the OLED display

In either case, there is a clear demand for these along with a shortage of supply and that will always put the price up
The x10 is not far from the price of Clives Digiceptor

Cheers

Maybe an old stock photo.....the original pictures of the 10x showed the focus at the 12 o’clock position and they came into nightvisiongear at the 10 o’clock position.
