I've been running an MO5 for 12 years and don't know when it will give up the ghost. I hear it talking to me quietly in different tongues at times - that's the hint that I may be standing here with my only edger down and no decisions yet made. So, I'd love to hear from New Kappa owners. It looks like Essilor did a rewind and decided to reissue the tried and trusted older design. Maybe I don't have to give a Mr. Color a glance? Thanks for your advice. Still love my ol' beauty, but time doesn't stand still.
