Re: LEICA CRF 1600 WARRANty

Would you guys be interested to see the comparison results from my LRF 1200 and the CRF 1600?
I did a fairly extensive comparision and it's all included in the letter I wrote to Leica. I could just post the letter if anyone's interested.

I really don't want to give Leica a bad name, because I've been super impressed with the LRF 1200 for the most part. I saw a CRF 1200 in extensive use this last October, and It seemed to do everything it was supposed to.

Maybe they just need to get the bugs worked out on this new 1600?? Maybe they'll have a recall, but kinda doubt it cause I think that most people buying these are perfectly content with getting reading to 700 yds......I am not one of them!

I feel for you badly elkaholic, that's total BS to get a replacement and have it be bad too!!

Ya, right now I'm hating that I sold my Swaro. I've ranged up to 2000 yards with it and it would range 1500 under almost any reasonable conditions. I thought the Leica would be great because of the added features and I loved the Leica 1200 I had a few years back. Oh well! Nothing to hunt right now anyway and I am quite sure that Leica will get it straightened out eventually. I will keep you all posted.....Rich

Re: LEICA CRF 1600 WARRANty

I just got off the phone with Leica. They were very pleasant and cooperative. They said they would check the next unit out for performance before shipping it to me. They will also send a free pickup from UPS. I thanked them and told them "this was their last chance". The told me that they have had VERY FEW returns and that it was odd that I would get two in a row. I agreed!.......Rich
p.s. How much is a Vectronix?

Re: LEICA CRF 1600 WARRANty

Wow...it's nearly like the new Leica is made in two different places--one at the Leica factory and the other in some hole in the ground in China. Either that or someone at Leica isn't 'tightening a screw' to spec or something. Weird. Hope they get if figured out. Sure is a nice compact unit.
