BRF that would do 1000 meters on animals in all conditions. Inclinometer with option to show degrees and or cosign distance. Might as well have option for yards or meters. Lens caps. 8x42 or 8x32.
Advanced options would be similar to Vectors: lasing two points and getting the distance between them, gps integration.

Oh and Pete where is my 6x PMII?

How about putting a rangefinding function into their compact spotting scope instead of ever increasing bino set-up? It would improve the ability to view at longer distances, improve stability and provide better mounting optic than a bino set-up.

What I want, they already make!!! Tell them that we want the VECTOR SERIES for sale to the general public. PERIOD. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I'll take a VECTOR 1500GMD. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Then we'd have Leica quality, and the new Leupold RX's "TRUE RANGE" finding capabilities, while having exceptional binoculars as well.

Pete,

Ditto the comments of Meichele and Mindcrime!!! Availability of the Vector would be awsome. I know they have to try to make an item in a price range they think will sell, but in my opinion (for what it is worth [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]) if they will build the ultimate range finding bino's, we will buy it........even if it is quite expensive.

Unfortunately guys Leica Sport Optics don't have anything more to do with the Vector. Leica geosystems have some rangfinding equipments and the Leica Vector is built today by a company called Vectronix in Switzerland, its not called the leica vector any more, just Vector.(www.vectronix.ch).
Still some gold ideas coming from you guys. keep it up, i'll pass it all on to Leica.
Pete

Thats what I was thinking, but wasnt too sure.

OK, how 'bout a vector 1500 type unit in the 10x50 range to sell to the civillian market.
Oh, and with wireless data transfer (bluetooth or something) to instantly transfer readings to palm pilot.
