Re: need some info on elite 1500
The Bushnell's always seem to degrade as they age. My Elite 1500 worked great for 2 or 3 years and then just quit ranging past 600 yards. A few months after that I was lucky to even get 300 yards. I sold it to a local guy and told him it was an archery or muzzle loader rangefinder because it simply wouldn't range like it should.
If you look them up on the internet, there are a lot of guys that have similar issues; their Bushnell's just quit working. My uncle bought his Leica over 10 years ago and that thing works like the day he bought it. I saved up the coin and bought a Leica and haven't regretted it at all.
In my mind, you're much better off buying a used Leica, even the old LRF 800's than a Bushnell Elite. I hope the Bushnell Fusions last better than their standard RF's or there will be a lot of unhappy customers in 2 or 3 years.
