EDG VR 85 Fieldscope

INTRODUCING EDG VR
The Next Generation Has Arrived

 
The new EDG VR 85 Fieldscope—the world’s first Fieldscope featuring Nikon’s lens-shift type VR (Vibration Reduction) system—will change the way you see the world. Based on the technologies developed for NIKKOR VR lenses, the new EDG VR 85 Fieldscope reduces image vibrations and blur during observation to approx. 1/8 and an equivalent shutter speed of two stops faster in digiscoping.
 

Make the World Stand Still for Your Enjoyment

Combining Nikon's sophisticated optical technologies with extreme VR (Vibration Reduction) precision has resulted in an optical masterpiece that keeps your viewing world still so you can enjoy the minutest details. With Nikon's superior chromatic-aberration compensation system of ED glass elements with advanced apochromat, field-flattener lens system, advanced multilayer lens and prism coatings and Nikon's original VR system, the new EDG VR 85 is truly a one of a kind Fieldscope for optics connoisseurs and photographers looking for maximum focal length.

Nikon can't give away an EDG spotter at current prices.  I wonder what makes them think they can sell any of these.
