If the Newcon's are as good as the latest reviews state they sound like they give Leica a run for their money.

The Leica 1200 wouldn't read a wolf (Alberta) at 600 yds on a frozen lake last week. Had to walk out there and beam back to land.

Re: Getting a new rangefinder which one??

HI,

with my Newcon 2000Pro, I could range in full sunny day a cow past 900 yards (black cow), and also the post fence (3feet high) at 600yards. Easy ranging cars at 1500yard in full speed by ofhands, no support or bypod, and building 2280, and 2900 yard.

This is my baby, and till now I;m happy with it.
The best way to go is :
GO TO A LOCAL SUPPLIER AND ASK HIM TO COME WITH YOU OUTSIDE WITH THIS 2 UNIT FOR PRACTICAL TESTS. Just outside of the stor to try them.

If you see one of the unit are poor quality, design, etc then the other one is a winner.

This is how I did. Do not trust me or another guy, because the units can be like a car (good or bed unit), and the condition of testing are different, and every person have a different level of perception of his standards (good or bad)
All you can do is listen our reviews, and at list you have one ideea what you have to be aware.

Thanks
Cris

Yup.

AN/GVS-5 - 10,000 meters - I have ranged 4,000 meters in fog where visability was 100 meters.

Kinda pricy though.
