JIM D. wrote:The only other negative (and for dealers only) is that the 4x will have the same price tag as the 3x. A negative for dealers that have 3x's still on the shelf, but a positive for a buyer wishing a (new old stock) 3x, as many dealer's are offering a free BK-7 with the purchase of a leftover 3x
