Does anyone know if prices of European optics for sale in the US are or will come down now that the Euro has dropped significantly against the US dollar?

I do not have the answer to that, but......  I would not count on it.

They've already come down quite a bit lately.....i.e. swaro EL's for $1500, Swaro SLCneu for $1100, Zeiss FL for $1700 are all substantially cheaper than they were 6 months ago.  I think it's the economy and some serious competition from the stellar sub $1000 glass binos.

Very. Very rarely does that trickle down to a consumer benefit.  History has shown that.

I don't guess I follow you.  Six months ago a 10x42 Zeiss Fl T binocular, probably as good as they get, cost $2000, and today you can buy them all day long for $1650 or so.  How is that not a consumer benefit?

I agree with JG here, the Euros. are dropping down the prices, and the exchange rate does
really make a difference. 
One interesting question, for retailers like our sponsor, is do the companies help out with these pricing issues, otherwise, it is hard to inventory, as you don't want to be on the wrong side.
