    Look through them if you can before finalizing. Leica's QC lately has been very suspect.

    BUY THEM !!! The BA was the model before the BN and the BN was the model before the current ultravid line. I owned the BN model and could not fault it, just updated to a geovid set. They are a top shelf set for sure. BUilt like a MACK truck too.

    IF you dont, someone sure will !

    Cheers

    Learned something new. I was referring to the recent Leica models.
