Canon 10x30 IS
I got mine eventually.
It's very nice, in terms of size and weight, it's pretty close to my Pentax 10x50 PCF III, but if you take IS (image stablization) into account, it's way lighter, since no tripod is required now.
It comes with only eyepiece caps, no objective lens cap. The bag that comes with it is pretty nice.
I just tested it indoor, it reaches focus rather easily, a good sign for bird watching. It's made in Japan. The apparent field of view is large at 60 degree, which is bigger than my Pentax despite they're both rated as 10x.
I shall report back after some actual usage.
