That is odd to hear about the problems with the bushnell elite. I have never had a problem in any light conditions with range out to 1000, it is only the 1300-1500 yds that I have had the problems in bad lighting conditions. Interesting to hear.

I have experienced the same problem with a Leica 1200,conditions get bad enough and ranging ability goes way down. I have owned the Bushnell 1500, Leica 1200 and the Swarovski 8X30 Laser guide, and without a dought The Swarovski will range farther and more consistently and in worse conditions.....

in normal day YES he could range, but not in full rain, or snow.
With my Newcon 2000 I could range everyting all the time.
So now we just return back to the store his new leica rangefinder, and ve are looking for a newcon 2000 pro.
Sorry, but we are very dissapointed by this new unit.

I can't honestly say that I've used mine (Leica 1200crf) in snowy conditions
I've had it for like 3 and a half months used it for longrange plinking, varmint hunting and a full season of archery. I am just impressed with this rangefinder compared to my last one (Leupold RX-IV). Its superfast compared to the loopy geezer. But its hard to see that far in snowy conditions anyways, and I admit it dosn't have that brush mode that cancels out interference within 150 yards. I just went outside and we are having a light rain right now, so I ranged across town on a bare hill side and ranged 1120 yards.
