Broz , things must have changed at Swaro . When they first came out , I bought two duds before I got a good one . I'm not complaining about Swaro Service , because they were very good about it . However , in those days they did no repairs in the US , and just sent me a new one .

Re: NEW Zeiss 8x26 Victory Rangefinder

Any reason other than price no one is looking at the G7 BR2? I had a Leica 1200, and it worked fine, but this G7 really is awesome. Ranged buildings at 2550, bales at almost 2000, cattle at 1500+(cant remember exact ranges). The ballistic solutions are dead on with my 300 Win and 6.5x284 tested so far, only out to 800.

Only negatives at all would be price and they are bulkier than swaro/zeiss/leica. Out of all my optics, this would be the last one I would give up.

Guys this is a 5 yr old thread. Much has changed since.

Jim, they all are limited in fog . snow , mist or rain. My recently purchased 1600 Leica works great. Ranged hay bales at over 1600, a tree right before dark at 1957. Distances were confirmed with my Vectronix PLRF10.

I went through several back then before I got a "good one" Then I started to learn about Beam Divergence and ditched all Swaro's when they started to fail me.

The G7 is a good unit to 1000 for hunting. It can go farther depending on the conditions and terrain but the huge bean can and will screw you if you let it. I feel this unit is a good choice for the right bunch of LR hunters. But not all. That is why I carry a Vectronix.
