Exactly what I do. Its nice to confirm the reading

    Have had and used a Geovid in 8-42 for 4 years. The glass to my eyes is not much if any better than Nikon ATBs. Max range with mine is 1348 yards and it takes very good conditions and target to get there. It will only range an antelope to 650 yards or so and deer not much farther on average. They are also kinda heavy.
    A budy just picked up the new 1600 Leica and it is all the Geovids should have been The glas is better and it will outrange the Geovids in all areas......Maybe he got a good 1600 and I got a poor Geovid??

    I personally use the Swarovski LRF and they work great. I have used the Bushnell Bino LRF and they work great.

    Here is a link to a review The Packing Rat did on the Bushnell Fusion.

    IMHO the Leica Geovids are the best binos on the market, the new HD version is better than the older ones. I have used them on a few hunts and was impressed! They are expensive but heck the new Swaro EL's are just as expensive without a rangefinder.

    I dont like the weight of the combos on neck, 32-35 oz. My ELS are 20 oz and I BOW hunt as much as rifle, sometimes w/ only LRF. My LRF 7OZ.

    They are a good bit heavier. But to me it is a very worthy comprimise. I don't know how much they weigh but they don't bother me on a neck strap. A Guy could always switch to the bino harness systems they have available

    My choice is a Zeiss 8x over the Leica. The glass is better at least for my eyes.
