Have any of you guys looked at the new NV unit from Pulsar ? The digital DFA75 is a forward mounting digital night vision with a massive light range, so wide it isn't damaged by daylight unlike most video tube intensified NVs. As the unit fits on the front rather than the back of your day scope eye relief isn't compromised also you can switch the unit by buying additional mounting rings for your other scopes. Here in the UK they are £1,200 so not cheap and initially there were a few teething problems, i.e. poor set of instructions, overly tight mount coupling also the menu isn't visible on scopes over x5 magnification - so not good. However they do have an incredible image quality especially if you team the unit up with a decent infrared source such as the Night Master 800 IR, the built-in IR unit doesn't seem to be man enough for the job. Anyway at the moment the DFA75 seems to have set the bar though I suspect there will be a rush for other manufacturers to be adding a digital unit to their own range.
The units are having a software upgrade and the second batch will be available here in the UK from about 1st May.
The question is do I sell my beloved S&B 8x56 illuminated for a Zeiss Diarange 3-12x56 ? More to the point can I really come up with a water-tight justification so plausible my wife won't take my favourite hunting knife and test it's sharpness on my gentleman vegetables ?
