Re: Leica 1600 v. Swaro side my side

Sitting in the docs office, but just had to make this admission. I am an idiot. But maybe my stupiditywill help someone else. I picked up the leica just on the off chance that my doc cancelled or I got out early. On my way I pass by a piece of property I own. I stopped to make sure everything was okay there. I grabbed the led just to play around a second. After a couple minutes of very poor results it hit me. Maybe there is a sticker over the little eye on the led. I turned the led around to check and immediately saw a big problem. The heel of my palm was cupping the sensor pretty much blocking it. Gave myself a head slap and repositioned my hand and gave it a try. Everything was much better. I am thinking that what I thought was a stability issue cured by resting the lrf on my rifle rest was actually just because I was no longer blocking the sensor.

    I can't edit my post on my phone but where "led" appears above it should read "lrf" darn auto complete

    I'd say 80% of the people that use my Leica for the first time do that exact same thing. I wonder how many times the Leica customer service people have said "Make sure your finger is not in front of the lens!"

    I have done it and seen others do it too. This is the disadvantage to the very small pocket size. I have joked that they need a longer barrel on the laser.
