Re: New range cheaper finders
I have two leica's, an older 1200 and the new 1600, the 1600 is the first rangefinder I've ever had that would reliably range further than the stated capability. In the clear mountain air out west I was able to go to 1700-1800 on a regular basis. Most others IME have usually been a stretch to get to the rated distance. The 1200 has been a very good unit and would range to 1100 or a bit better pretty well.
