Binoculars - to RF or not to RF
As I ponder my options for a new rangefinder I am seriously considering getting one of the new binoculars with built in rangefinder like the Leica Geovid HD or the like. The reason being is that I would prefer not to bring a dedicated RF AND binoculars into the field. That being said, technology keeps improving every year even with rangefinders, similar to buying an electronic device that works great today but is virtually obsolete in less than 5 years. Do you feel the same Achilles heel with bino's with RF built in? Or do you think I'd be pretty safe with today's technology.
One thought on this is simply, if it works, then why change, meaning that if I want a binocular with built in RF and I only need it to accurately range to 1000 yards within +/- a yard or two, then there is no need for me to upgrade in the future. Am I missing something here? Curious what others who have gone through this process have decided. Thank you.
