I've been in the market for a new spotting scope, and have been looking very closely at the Pentax PF-65.  I just noticed it is no longer for sale on SWFA, just the 80's and 100's.  Please tell me this is just a temporary thing?

My guess would be that they are making way for the new Pentax 65 ED II. Pentax redesigned the popular 65 ED with higher grade ED glass for even less color fringing in the image.

Thanks Frank.  Hopefully they didn't redesign the price too much.

If they did then you might be able to find some superb deals for the original 65 mm.
