Re: G7 BR2 VS Leica 1600-B
I ended up buying the G7 after thinking long and hard about it. I considered the Terrapin for its extended distance and narrow beam but decided to go with the extended capability of the G7. I also didn't see myself taking +1400 yards shots at game. For longer range targets, I could live with the manual range finding capability of the G7 which will range out to a mile or more. I have used the 1600 and own a Geovid as well. My experience is that the ranging performance is quite similar between all of them. The calculator in the 1600 is no comparison to the G7. I used the G7 on a hunt a few weeks ago and really put it through it's paces. I did explain my experience in another post. The G7 does everything that is claimed, gives the same output as as my normally used devises, and is well worth the price. The most useful feature that doesn't get a lot of press is the near/far selection when ranging. I could not get a clean read with my Geovids, but did with the G7 on the antelope and white tail I shot. The near/far feature can selectively ignore interfering brush, hills, trees, other animals, etc. in the foreground or background at short or long range. I think this compensates for the wider beam divergence by ignoring interferences. It is an extremely useful feature once you learn how to use it.
