Pentax: New PCF V vs. Used PCF?

I am a beginner to Astronomy, and decided to go the Bino route for now. Considering a few Pentax's:
1) New PCF V for $110 or
2) Used PCF for $75

The used PCF are made in Japan, where the newer "V' model are made in China, and not sure if any advantage with Japanese optics?

Additionally, is there any differences I should be aware of when considering the PCF WP(waterproof) to the PCF V's?? Specs seem to be almost identical for all three. Thanks for any tips or advice from users of any of these. Nick
