In 2019, APM presented the prototype of a small 6×30 porro binocular and asked for comments. BINOCULARS TODAY wrote a detailed review, see https://binocular.ch/apm-6×30-ms-prototype/, and after that,  there were no further news for a long time. But in September 2021, APM brought the final version of the 6×30 to the market. The main changes from the prototype appear to be improved antireflection coatings and a bit more usable eye relief, which will be an advantage for spectacle wearers. Otherwise, the APM 6×30 appears unchanged and is a welcome addition to the market of small 6x / 7x binoculars. At a price below € 200, it offers good value for money.
In 2024, APM came out with or is about to launch a new 6.5×32 “APO” model, both in IF (see  https://binocular.ch/12117-2/) and CF.
