My only concern - The new 10x42 Ultravid binos are SUPER SWEET, and much lighter than the older 10x42 BA's I have. Do the Geovids have the titaniun pin and magnesium frame like the new Ultravids, same glass but, just incorperate the laser unit from the Lieca 1200. I just wonder if we'd be getting lesser glass quality, higher weight etc with the Geovid in order to get the great price and incorperated laser, know what I mean? Just seems the price is not too much more than the Ultravid's...
I wonder if the link up to a palm device will have to use a certain ballistic program, sounds cool though. You'd still have to enter in the wind speed and dirrection on the palm to get your correction there, unless the Kestrel
was hooked up. One click away from that and you have your firing solution anyway. Seems it might be a neat feature but not really a time saver as it seems.
If it displayed the wind deflection MOA in the HUD for a 1 MPH wind for 30, 60 and 90 degrees off to the side, one could figure that quickly without haveing to do anything (possibly) but turn on the palm device and Kestrel.
I'd be perfectly satisfied with an integral laser in my new Leica's, that's value enough for me. I think the two wires running to the palm and Kestrel would be a thurough pain in the A$$, not to mention the wind is something I like to look at a little more carefully than a single reading you'd probably get when you hit the fire button on the Geovid.
