My Bushnell doesn't work in the fog either, I didn't think it was too much of a problem, if I couldn't see the deer there was no point in tryin to laser them??? Or do you guys have a different terminology to fog than what we brits do??

How much are these Newcon 200 Pro run to??

I could see in this fog. Mine would range a hill that was 300 yards @ over 700 yards or no reading at all. In other words it would misread way over or not read at all. Luckly there were no Wapiti in the fog when I needed my retarded rangefinder.

Heskiethprichard, I don't have a Leica 900, my brother inlaw does and I used it a little. It was hard to get ranges on trees out past 600 in bright sunlight. I tried out a LRF 1200 and it was hard to range trees in brigh sunlight past 800.

I currently have a nikon 800 and I have been told that the ranging ability is very simmilar between nikon and Leica (Leica has much better glass). I have a hard time ranging deer sized targest at 500 and beyond. Must be perfect conditions to range at 500. If you only want to range too 4-500 yards I think you would be OK w/ the Leica 900, but if you plan on ranging beyond you will be dissapointed. It takes a larger target, but not a reflective one. Look back on the optics a couple months back there was some good discussion on range finders by much more experienced people than me.
good luck, Mark.

Thanks guys especially to Britz and 300rum guess I need to go and check a few things out. I must admit tho' after talkin it thro with my buddy BrownDog; attempting to go out past 400-500 on UK deer is a bit much for me and my new to "long range hunting" set up right now. We just dont have the big wide open spaces you guys have.

OIC what you mean Bigcat we are seperated by a common language, fog in the UK usually means you cant see nothin past about 50m hence my post, no offence intended.
