Leica Binoculars With Built in LRF

I am looking for opinions of the Leica binocular with the built in LRF from the guys who own a set?? Or have used a set?? I have a set of 8X56 SLC Swaro's. and I am thinking about getting the Leica with the LRF. Not exactly sure what size yet. Tom.

I have had a set of the LRF Leicas in 10x for several years now. I've never used a set of binos that was better.

Re: Leica Binoculars With Built in LRF

My buddy and I each have a set. Mine is an 8x his a 10x. Been through three hunting seasons with them. Excellent optics and very accurate rangefinder. Big bucks but we both agree that it's one of the best investments we've made when it comes to hunting gear!!! We both owned Swaro's previously, very nice, but no comparison to the Geovids.

Re: Leica Binoculars With Built in LRF

im with the other guys, they are by far the best binos I have ever used and I love not having to carry a range finder its so handy. I have had mine since 2008 and they have a lot of miles on them, never a problem and I love everything about them. if you have the money I highly recommend them. mine are the 10x42's.

Re: Leica Binoculars With Built in LRF

it depends on conditions but a nice cool to warm fall day with no snow i have hit just over 1400 yards even though they are only rated for 1300, in the snow itws a little harder but theres a lot of variables and in heavy mirage its a little harder but id say 1200 as a minimum in most non extreme conditions. it has a scan mode which is very helpfull in less than perfect conditions

Re: Leica Binoculars With Built in LRF

I have had no problem ranging whitetails and mulies as far as 1000-1100 yards....haven't tried farther. I use and like the scanning mode for difficult conditions. If I can flash the same range two or three times at my target I'm good to go.
