Hi there,
I'm the poster from above and the story continues:
4 weeks later the bino arrived at the photostore.
I checked it and when i looked inside to see if they
cleaned the optics well I saw a lot of tiny scratches.
I showed the dealer the mess and he was very angr
now (not about me but to Leica).
He tried to reach someone at Leica but it was Friday
and they had weekend, we thought.
He said, that he send it back with an angry discription
of the customers (me) problem.
4 Weeks later (they forgot to inform me, that it arrived)
I recieved it back and now it is a fully new one were they
replaced the eyebarrels with the orig. serial number.
The new one is the following model the "BN".
So, now I have the new "BN" model with new coatings
on it with the old serial number eyebarrels, old eyecups,
"BA" model manual, "BA" package, the old leatherbag
and neckstrap (that's no problem), and the bill with the
serial number of a "BA" model that now is a "BN".
Conclusion: The new "BN" is a "9" but there are better
binos out there.

A german
