Yep...Uncle Al just announced it at NEAF:

"Lighter"
"Smaller"
"Cheaper"
"Due in July"

Didn't look much smaller in Al's hand (on video, no I ain't at NEAF)...and he didn't say how _much_ cheaper... 8)

Well Rod, shouldn't it be 8/13 as expensive? wink
I had to think long and hard about buying the 13mm,
but having used it for a few months now,
the 8mm is a "gotta have it"! grin

I had a look at it at NEAF, very nice, optically feels like its bigger cousin. You have to shove you eye in to see the whole FOV and then it consumes you completely.
