Takahashi FC-100D Experience

Has anyone got or used one of the new Takahashi FC-100D Fluorite doublets?
I am considering this for purely visual astronomy on Planets, Moon and double starts compared to one of the Chinese 120mm ED Doublets.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has compared these.
Question for me is: Is there a possibility that the Tak can stack up against the 10mm more (soem if not most 120mm ED are 110 due to internal stops) size due to better colour correction and better contrast?

Hi Peter , is this the FC100D you mean , that Takahashi have just released ? . I have only seen good things ( not many yet , but a few on CN's ) written about it on the net .

I have looked thru a standard FS100 f8 and it was very good , actually we could not see anything but what we were looking at , excellent scope , perfect optics and build and if the new FC100D for just over 2k is as good it will a dream come true for many , hell it might even get me to part with my sky90 for one ?.
