Looks nice, but I still would rather have one of these:

Any idea what the ballpark price is on that?  

Apples and oranges compared to the X7 or RTC360 (range vs speed/detail) but for the right price I could make a lot of use of one of those.  Stonex has a scanner that is only around $25k I think (similar form factor) but I've heard horror stories of them spending more time back at the factory figuring out what's wrong with it than it actually doing scanning work.

55k for 250m range, 85k for 750m, and 105k for 1600m.

The ranges with any of these models are pretty ridiculous when you think about it.

I'm sure you could shop around and maybe find a used or demo one for a good price. 

Teledyne Optech makes the real deal stuff - no junk at all coming out of that shop.

All depends on the range you need.  If I was scanning for a surface mine or quarry I'd go for Optech or Reigl in a heartbeat.

A Riegl for almost everything. Top notch instruments. I have no experience with optech
