    8 x 35 1.67

    Is this lens available by any of our lens manufacturers any longer? Help! I am having a hard time getting this answer from our lab. Thank you for any input

    I show availability through KBCo for clear and a plethora of polar options.
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    I have a -8.00 power and it looks like KBco only has 4,6, & 8 base in the 8X35 1.67 isn't that strange that they wouldn't offer a 2 base (especially since it is a 1.67 material)?

    If you compromise to a 7x28, you can get it through X-Cel. They have a better selection of 1, 3, 5, or 7 base.

    Or... they also offer an 8x35 1.60 option in a 2 base that has a plano back curve option, which may help with cut-out depending on cyl/ fit.
