Finally made up my mind...Leica 1600B
After going back and forth the last month or so comparing the Leupold 1000i, the Vortex 1000, and the Leica 1600B - I have decided on the Leica.
I just ran into too many negatives on consistent ranging on animals with the Vortex and Leupold. The reviews on the Leica models seemed more consistent and positive.
Not saying the Leupold is bad, nor the Vortex. I have some Vortex binocs and for the money, I could not be happier. But a rangefinder had to have all the attributes I wanted, and range and ease of getting that range was at the top of the list.
So now I begin the journey of finding a decent deal on the 1600B.
I know everyone lists them at MSRP. but I also know there are deals to be found.
Any opinions or recommendations?
