My leica and others i have uses have always read beautifully everytime where as for the swarovski though it is an excellent rangefinder and i have seriously thought about one i seem to alway have problems reading ranges. Another thing that really sold me on the leica over the swarovski is the read out and the range square or circle is 100 times brighter and easier to see on the leica where as for rhe swarovski it is very dim and hard to see.

+1 for leica!!

    I have run all three also...I am currently running the zeiss...I found that the Swaro was superior if it was on a tripod and you had enough time...two things I don't usually have in the field I bought the zeiss before the crf1600 came out..I already had the crf900 and love it but it came up a little shy...I don't think you could go wrong with either, but the Leica fits in a shirt pocket and the Nimrod small pouch
