Re: Leica Geovid BRF ?

They appear to be the same as the BN model bino, but use a aluminum housing and only carry a 5yr warranty. I'm not sure how they compare for FOV, the apparent angular FOV verses the angular FOV doesn't make sense to me either. The new Ultravids have the HighLux coatings and are different, stronger magnesium body as well, and a lifetime warranty.

Re: Leica Geovid BRF ?

I'm not sure if SWFA has the FOV correct or not, but 110 or 125 feet FOV at 100 yards...... SUCKS!! My 10x42BA has 360ft FOV, and the 8x is way up there. No thanks if that's all the FOV really is!

According to the Leica web site the FOV is 110 yds at 1000 yds.

Re: Leica Geovid BRF ?

Thanks again Hunter. I emailed SWFA to see if it was a misprint or what. Too bad, would have been a good tool but, just too much I'm not willing to give up on FOV there. Once you've looked through a FOV at 250ft. or so, then looked at one from 350-450 ft..... you'd never go back, never to 110-125 ft. FOV. I can already feel the eye strain just thinking about that day in the field. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

On the field of view issue, the 10x42 geovid BRF's have 110 meters at 1000 meters which is the same field of view as the Swarovski EL 10x42's which are considered by many to be one of the best binoculars available.

Brent, the FOV is 110 Meters a 110 Yards @ 100 Yards. That's 330 Ft @ 1000 yards. Not 110 feet @ 1000.
