Jon, that is a very nice offer. Which newcon do you have? A friend of mine has the 2000 (??) and his shooting buddy has the 3000 (??) or what ever two modles. I am not familiar with their mod. numbers. Like you they state the glass does not compare but they will range looonnng distance. The reason I had not considered one is the size and weight. My long range hunting load is getting out of control. That is why I am going to go with the Swaro, Leica or Zeiss.
As for when. I just sent my Swaro off for repair yesterday and in talking with them I asked that they do a complete check and make sure it is up to standard and as good as a Swaro gets before returning it to me. They said they would. So we will see when it comes back, I would expect 3 weeks or so. I will have a new Leica in a week and then decide where I can buy or borrow a Zeiss. I do have a friend with one in Wy.
