Leica has and does build the finest, most advanced surveying equipment in the world
and has for longer than we've been alive. I have one of their theodolites that measures
in 1/2 seconds or in lay mans terms that's 1/400 of an inch in a 100 ft. Their range
finding technology is born from their surveying division.
I have a Bushnell 1000 yard rangefinder and it won't, not on it's best day and most
reflective target. It also doesn't work at all in cold weather. (big help in Mt. where I live)
The companies just don't build comparable products. It may be an exaggeration but for
me it's like comparing a Yamaha motorcycle with a briggs and stratton driven mini bike.

Well said Leica is a way better range finder I have a leica 1200 and a swar 1500 and i find my self going to the leica most of the time so i'm fixing to get the 1600 and sale the swar. But there is a new LR G7 BR2 coming out soon that looks to be really nice so i'm waiting till then to see how it works out. take a look

I haven't spent much time with my Leica 1600, but have got 1569 and 1571 yds. so far. I can't find anything I don't like about it so far. I love the small size and clarity.
Good Luck,

I have owned both Leica's and Bushnell's and there is no comparison. The Leica are far superior to anything Bushnell makes.
