I just dont want to get a 1200 yard range finder that only ranges to 700 or something like that, thanks sorry for being anal but right now 500$ is a lot to spend especially if I would be better off saving a few more months for a 1600 or a swaro.
The 1200 was Leica's top line a couple years ago and it is a quality rangefinder and nothing in the $500 price range will perform nearly as well.

If you're thinking about saving, do it. If you are looking to get the most features in a rangefinder look at the G7 when it comes out.

I think that's very true.

I have had one for a couple of years, I paid $550 from Bass Pro. It is truly the best range finder I have ever had, and I have owned several.

I wonder if the 1200's are discontinued or renamed to 1000's since the 1600's came out? If so, maybe that's why he's selling so low. For a new CRF 1200 I would say it's a great price. Especially considering that there is a new one on E-bay with 15 bids up to $567 ATM.

I just checked those leicas out on ebay you were talking about and they are already up to 627 $ with 19 bids. WOW at that price I figure people would just go up to the 1600 Well Ill be going to pick those leicas up tomorrow thanks

I've been using the CRF1200 for the past 3 years and have been very happy with it. It's been all the range finder I've needed and will routinely range large objects (boulders) at 1300 yards.

Re: Leica 1200 Good buy $

Well I picked up my leica 1200 today and found out what everyones else did years ago, these are awsome! I know its a house but I was standing holding my cell phone up to the rangfinder and looking at the cell screen to take this, so not stable at all and still got 1216 yards Its amazing how far 1000 yards really is when you can actually range it, whole new respect for guys that can shoot that distance. I was looking at things and thinking how far they were before ranging, after ranging them things I thought were way out there werent nearly as fas I thought. I was able to range people at 1003 yards standing also. You gotta love good equipment
