I have a full set of the University Optic Ortho's and think they would be very hard to beat by any other type available. Also have a complete set of vintage TV Plossls and they too are very hard to beat. I like them both.

John,



As I understand it, the new Baader "Genuine Orthos" are now made in China

and some users have reported variations in quality between said identical

sets. The low price speaks volumes! That said, if you've got good EPs, well,

you should be perfectly satisfied as they are still "orthos" and I think they

still use Baader coatings which is a HUGE plus ;-). IMO, it is the coatings

that made the difference between Zeiss Abbe orthos and say, University Optics

Abbe Orthos. I have to say too, that the Japanese made UO Abbes are very

good EPs and should also be considered as an alternative to the collectable's,

but don't go any lower than 6mm as eye relief becomes offensive in (my)

opinion ;-)



Happy hunting!



Mark
