Orion Stratus Clones

I saw a review of a 35mm Stratus Clone recently that was very positive. I just had an opportunity to purchase a similar 13 mm Stratus Clone from someone on AM, who got it at auction. Does anyone know who is putting these on the market? It would be nice to know if they were (1) unlabeled prototypes, (2) blatant copies of the orion product, (3) or legitimate copies (??). I do recognize that the stratuses are pretty much copies of the vixen lanthium wide EPs...is this a case of "what comes around goes around" for Orion (i.e., their clone product gets cloned)?
