I found a interesting article comparing range finders
http://www.6mmbr.com/rangefinders.html

ALso Newcon Optik 3000 is the range finder that I was thinking of, pretty pricy at @ $1700.

try the bushnell elite

I would give the Bushnell Elite ARC a try. It is not expensive, and it does range. I could get repeated, reliable ranges on actual elk at over 900 yards during a hunt in field conditions.

The problems others will bring up:

The optics are not as good as the Leica/Swaros.
True, however they are good enough to see what you are ranging out to past 1000 yards. Evaluate through your binos, range through your Bushnell.

The unit is big.
It is sort of big, for a rangefinder, but I have never found this to be a problem. It is also fairly lightweight.

Bottom Line: The Bushnell Elite 1500 ARC has real-world ranging capabilities and angle compensation, at a great price. But, if you want to judge trophy potential through your rangefinder, go with the Swaro.
