Outside of knowing their name, i know next to nothing about their products? Can anyone here shed any light on them as a company? Ilya, Wes, etc?

Was browsing their MK-7 Omega 1-6x and the specs are very interesting. Just trying to get a feel for their products. US Made which is always a + Thunbs Up

Ellis Optics seems to be on hold for the time being.  Last I talked to the guy behind it was close to a year ago and he had something in the works.  I have not heard anything since and I know their products are not available for the time being.

Thanks Ilya, that seems to be the same story i've been reading around the net. They definitely seem like an interesting outfit though.

They have a new line coming out with a major manufacturer.  I will be getting their latest models soon for review.  
I'll let you know how it works out.

Thanks KB!

Is that new line going to be open to the general public?

I spoke to the guy behind Ellis Optics a couple of days ago.

It looks like for some time, Ellis Optics will concentrate on being an OEM supplier to other companies.  The scope they are working on (for a larger company) is likely to be available tot he public and the first information on it that I have seen looks pretty good.

I hope to have more details around the end of the year.

So basically this larger company will have Ellis build it and then slap their name on it?

Thanks for the update Ilya.

I do not think it is going to be quite that simple.  I suspect that there will be more integration between them than that, but that is mostly me guessing.
