Back in June I mentioned about the upcoming SLR Magic digital scoping solution with ED optics for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The product was delayed because of some changes in the design (adding a tripod collar). The spotting scope is now officially announced and available for sale on eBay.

    Nice!

    I mean it is enough to identify a bird…
