Wow, it's really expensive. However as the saying goes:" you get what you pay for."
 
I got some information about the product on a website. I hope this will be useful information.
 
it's highly efficient light gathering power from its 70mm objective size. It is a good choice for long distance panoramic observation and low lighting observation. But heaviness is a negative factor.

tohunch,
 
Thanks for the info.
 
The weight is of no concern since they would be on a tri-pod.  When I use them.

The biggest drawback for hunting would be the Inidvidual Focus Eyepieces.
 
You would be better off purchasing something with center focus.

weight may not be a concern but sheer size might be.  One thing we don't know is your intended use.  I suspect it might be from a relatively stationary position.  Even for a hunting Big Eye glass it's huge.  I suspect it is more of an Astronomy glass than a terrestrial one.
 
Personally, unless it was to be a resident on my back porch deck, I'd take a long hard look at the Minox 15x57 BL.
