    In my area of operation, I'll be doing some pest control as close as 10ft away with a PCP air rifle and most of my hog hunting in the Texas Brush country where shots would rarely be over a 100yds. I was thinking the 1.5-6 would be perfect for this?

    I would expect there to be 640 versions (one year) with the 50mm focal length being 2x (half the 4x of the 320) and the 75mm focal length being 3x (half the 6x of the 320). If these larger focal length scopes have enough "shock and awe" with their image ... and the shown price of the Q-14B (now up in pre-order status on NVG ) is any indicator ... these "boson zeuses" could really grab the market!

    Did that dealer receive the Flir thermal scopes yet?

    No, if you scroll down you will see I have an updated message explaining the 4th was not valid.

    Maybe he will get his tracking number next week? Based on the timeline you provided as an update.

    Do you know which units will be shipping on the 20th? I'm interested to see if the new units have a focusable front lens.

    No these will not have a focus. That is how they kept the cost down on these. If you want a focus you will need the next level up.

    I've heard "2 more weeks" for a couple months now. I don't blame the dealers, since this isn't an isolated issue with one dealer, but seems to be happening to all of them. I'm sure Flir is either not giving their dealers the whole story, or not making good on their commitments. I'll believe it when I see the UPS truck pull up to the house...

    The 533 is gonna be around the $3500 mark and the 733 around the $4500 mark from what I hear, so this is not 100% correct.

    Can you post the picture? I heard the new lens is supposed to be awesome. If that's true I will wait for that model and postpone buying the 233

    Yes everything past the predator or pts233 entry level is focasable. The new q14 was not focusable at shot show if it ever comes out.

    I don't understand. Why would you produce a thermal that had no focus ?? How does this work ??
    My ATN ThOR is very dependent on the focus. At <100yds,if the animal moves closer or farther,of only 15yds or so,you need to refocus. You can still target the hog but it will not be visably as clear. ---- pruhdlr
