Thank you for your enquiry.

Yes, these are the latest version, we only got them from Zeiss UK a matter of weeks ago. They are marked T*P* in red.

How come you not longer keep these in stock?

Carl Zeiss recently increased the price, until then we kept them in stock.

We can still get them, it normally only takes a couple of days to order them from Carl Zeiss.

Do you have either a lens cover or case to fit this model?

Thank you for your enquiry.

Zeiss do not make lens caps for this model, and I have never managed to find other makes that will properly fit.

Zeiss do make a leather pouch for the 8x56 B/GAT, we do not keep them but can order them, this normally takes a few days. The pouch costs £55.00

Do you have this item in stock? Model number for the states is 525658, what is it there? Is there any differences between the model that you sell and the one that was sold in the states. What would be the cost in dollars to order a pair from you and shipping charges to ship to the US.

eebc - Chris
06/05/2008 12:03:33
Yes they are currently in stock.

The model number in Great Britain is 52 56 58.

I do not know if there are any differences, I can not see why there should be.

The current price is £1045.00 insured shipping would add £70.00, this is approximately US$2200

The 8x56 B/gat are still in the price list and last time we ordered one it arrived in a couple of days, so yes as far as we are aware, they are still available.

The eyecups are available as spare parts, we do not keep them in stock, it usually takes about a week for us to get them.

They are £15.00 each.

If you can not find any locally, we could send them Airmail to Georgia, this would add another £3.00

Do you carry spares for this model, i.e. centre focus wheel, right eyepiece, or parts thereof.

We do not keep any spares for Zeiss binoculars.

Zeiss UK can be contacted via the link above (just under the item description) they can possibly help you.

Hello, I would like to know if Zeiss still makes the hard molded leather case for the classic 8X56 binocular (525658) not sure if the model number is correct. Thank you.
