i have the 10x geovids. i love these things. for you guys that are worried about weight do you guys only carry one or the other. most of us carry both and in most cases when you are looking through your binos (when making a stock) you wish that you had pulled up the range finder. thats the beutiful thing with these you just click a button and you are done. swaro makes great glass but so does leica. the deal maker for me was the all in one. you wont realize the extra weight. what does your binos and rangefinder weigh together i bet its close to what the geos weigh. why carry 2 instead of 1....

I have an old pair of Geovid (7 by 42) that I purchased at least 12 years ago and they haven't ever let me down. They have a great warrenty, I had a horse go down in a river one day and the glasses were damaged and filled with water. At the time I was a guide on a goat hunt, the next day I called Leica and they had a new pair fedex to me the next day. Can't do any better than that. I use them all the time and the range finder seems to work good out to about 1000 yards maybe 1200 if conditions are right. They are a little on the heave side, but I can live with that. Last year I ranged a 6 pt. bull at 738 yards and made one shot with my .408 chey tac. Again, best glasses I've ever owned.

I have used a set for about a year and like them alot.I have noticed one thing about them,when glassing into the glare of the sun sometimes I notice a red tint in the right eye piece.I think its the sunlight reacting to the rangefinding ret. thats in the right eye piece. Anybody else notice this or is it a problem with my set?

Never noticed a red tint on mine. I have had them for a little over a year. I can range cows out to 1200 with no problems... no deer out that far to look at. I've carried mine around the world and not noticed that they were too heavy.

The geovids kick butt ! I have never yet spoken to anyone who has not loved them ?

With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.

Leica 10 by 42 Geovids

I use mine to spot Sika and Red deer in New Zealand.

They are excellent binos, Im often looking 4hrs in the mornings and 4.5 hrs in the evenings with them, no eye strain and easy to watch animals out to 2000yrds. I have no problem ranging out to 1344yrds anytime. They will not range at all in foggy conditions.
