Was looking to buy a new Z6i 2-12x50 last December. Called in at the Sportsman Newport, took a look, probably would have bought one but changed my mind when after my interest, staff changed the prices on all the Swarovski items, by not such a small amount. Would have thought that old stock costs should have remained the same until exhausted and not change under your nose.
Anyhow, at that stage the pound was worth 1.25 euros and now it's worth 1.35 euros. Cost of the scope is still showing the higher price at the same shop. I wonder if it's like the cost of fuel?.....goes up quickly when the dollar gets strong but never seems to come down anywhere near as fast.
Just an observation..... Just bought a completely un-associated piece of kit direct from Germany it somthing like 75% of what it would have cost in the UK. Think I'll take a look at what the scope will cost elsewhere.....
