Thermapen + IR

Has anyone seen or used the new Thermapen plus Infra-Red thermometer?  Saw it for.the first time the other day.  Seems pretty neat upgrade.
If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    The IR distance-to-target ratio is 5:1 which is quite broad so you'd need to hold it pretty close to your target area if you're trying to measure a specific area.
    It's no longer waterproof like the Mk4,
    I think I'd pass. For about half the price I can get a Javelin Pro Duo and a separate IR gun with a 12:1 target ratio that also uses a laser to display a pattern on the surface that gives a visual indicator of the area that is being read/measured.
