Now if vortex would only come out with 65mm contender, great article BB.
During my evaluation, I actually used both eyepieces with the new Diascope. I took the spotter to my friend's house (huntingbigsky on rokslide forums), and put it side to side with his older Diascope 65 tFL. We put both eyepieces on both scope bodies. The yellow bias and edge blurring was definitely a result of the older style eyepiece. The new eyepiece would certainly show a good improvement on your scope, and it will mount right up. However, it will not lock, as your scope body doesn't have a receiver for the pin. Improvements to the new Diascopes didn't end with the eyepiece, though. Zeiss claimed an increase in flare and glare control when glassing into the sun, and huntingbigsky and I looked at that also by glassing some tree boughs right in the path of the Montana setting sun. The new Diascope had a noticeable advantage over the older version, regardless of which eyepiece was mounted.
