Re: best rangefinder?

Price vs. Quality Leica wins hands down. Its worth spending the extra $$ over the Bushnell & Nikon and its worth saving the $$$ not getting the Swaro.

If you really want to spend get the Geovid or better yet that $6000 super deluxe job with the angle indicator.

Re: best rangefinder?

I purchased a Bushnell range finder a couple years ago and had lots of problems with super short battery life in cold temps below 35 degrees. Also the widow bracket was to large to be accurate on a deer (mule deer) at 600 or 700 yards. Also the modes where hard to select and rain was a NO NO for this range finder. I have since bought myself a Leica and love to use it in the field.
