We should add optics!

We should add optics!
I'm an avid binocular enthusiast, so it would be cool to see drops for good to excellent bino's that fit the needs of the outdoor enthusiasts and such that we have here on Massdrop.
Could be it's not a great idea, due to most optics manufactures like Nikon, Pentax, Fuji, Zeiss, Leica, Swarovski, etc are all MAP (minimum advertised price)...but perhaps reach out to the likes of Zeiss and ask about their entry level Terra line...or Pentax and their Papilio or Nikon and their Action EX.

There is not an optics group, but... They do sell optics. Trouble is, though, you need to search for them. Search for: optic telescope binocular etc.
BTW, I got the CraftOptics Magnifying Telescope with the DreamBeam through the Quilting community. All I know about quilts is that they are warm and that you should not fold them the same way each time you refold them - But the CraftOptics is very very nice.

As a person who as somewhat aged, I can certainly support the idea to bring optics into the fold. Be it for computer use, concurrent short and long range viewing, the harsh impacts of sunlight and the desire to stay active, optics are required and expensive. In fact, the hardest thing for me to find are decent sports glasses with optics.
