So, what's the deal on these 100mm binocs from Celestron !??!?! Anyone use these yet, or similiar ones - I'm assuming they might come from a chinese factory that other retailers sell...

Yes. This model looks like the ones offered by APM, Burgess Optical except for the finish. There may be silight difference in coating(Fully coated, FMC, broadband MC, etc)Oberwerk has a 22X100 model with center focus and 3.8 deg FOV!($399) The others have IF. In comparion most 20X80s have 3.5 deg FOV. My 25X100 ProOptics is only 2.6 degs.
