Solely? Those 17 upgrades aren't upgrades after all?
What those upgrades are is not at all clear. Either those upgrades haven't been released, or they are "new coatings" or the newly introduced colours.

That "restructuring" consisted solely of re-name existing binocular models.

I like how it uses a D-Li90 battery, now being rebranded as a Ricoh BT-10 (see the bottom of this page)

Also, the unit itself looks massive so I'm guessing (as the branding implies) that it's designed for security professionals / guards.

If I could give you a +10 for that, I would!

I wonder how many years it will be before these things resemble the Motorola Brick phone to us? hehe

I predict that these binoculars show up in a movie in the hands of a soldier, spy, or other operative before a Pentax DSLR appears in a movie.

In my opinion it lacks an important feature - laser rangefinder. With this, it might even attract military customers (useful tool for artillery spotters, scouts, snipers, etc).
