Any idea on the improvement of the new 007 over the old please

The principal difference appears to be the NV007S' side focus - by removing the larger in-line focus wheel that sat below the older NV007, the overall length of the unit appears to be shorter. PARD_NV007.jpg

YT footage shows that some users had to set their day scopes slightly further forward on their rifles to accommodate the NV007 comfortably, so this is probably to address that issue.

The other difference appears to be in the base zoom values between old and new units. I.e. more base zoom on new units.

Not sure how that is a plus on a rifle with a well-specified optical zoom, but it probably improves the new model's viability as a hand-held spotting unit when used apart from a rifle.

They made the new model 16mm shorter by using a mirror to direct the incoming light upwards so the the lens and sensor now sit vertically - hence the position of the focus control.
Other wise there is no difference in performance
Same sensor, same display, same IR
Is a 16mm reduction in length worth more than a £200 increase in price over the still available 007A?
