Bushnell fusion vs seperate bino and rangefinder

How does the bushnell fusion (10x42) compare to the combination of a bushnell elite 1500 arc rangefinder with the nikon monarch (12x42) ATB binos?

I like my set up but would prefer an all in one unit. Will I sacrifice anything by going to the bushnell fusion?

Re: Bushnell fusion vs seperate bino and rangefinder

I have the Leica Geovid range finder binoculars and they are pretty handy. but there is always comprimise. the fusion would be cool if you were trying to take game that kept moving and you wanted to verify range before you shot but it would be less handy for ranging something real quick off hand also the scope has a smaller field of view. I think it would be pretty cool to try out though.

FWIW, Fusion is Bushnell's new combo rangefinder/binocular, not a rifle scope.

Oh my mistake! ! In that case yes do it. Rangefinder binos are the only was to go in my opinion.
