interesting Smith are replacing the usual sensor mirror with the RC36....and they don't have any in stock. They were getting a lot of complaints (including from me) that the sensor mirrors were fogging between the lenses, so they're (finally) probably (hopefully) changing things around with those.

for me, the RC36 are barely doable in overcast conditions and really pretty bad in overcast+shadowed (like end of the day when in the glades) - jack of all trades/master of none type deal.

I/OX lenses are too big and do not fit in regular I/O frames

OP, many brands did a more limited production run, reduced material availability and shipping issues have coincided to have very limited availablity at this time in the season. This year, the smart person would have placed an order or bought in Aug/Sept. My main shop said they were only able to get their pre order inventory, doubt they could get more and some item were just sold out at the distributor level. My daughter is still waiting for some stuff she ordered in Aug/Sept and they noted that they are not shipping til mid dec. Her smith proform even took awhile to arrive.
Yeah, this time of year is tough for hot items like the I/O or IO/X. Happened to me last year. I was dead set on a pair of I/Os but everyone and their mother seemed to want a pair.
