I have played with one and the only thing that I can say is, wow. It is great. Clarity and the accuracy is outstanding. Nice and small in size making it easy to use.

How about ranging capability compared to the leica 1200? Seems like a good value for 400 bucks.

I can not comment on the Leica since we do not carry them at this time, but when playing with the Nikon, I did get a range of 1165 yards on the tree line.

Re: NIkon 1200 Rangefinder

Ok, I bought one.
The unit in general is small and easy to hold steady. The continuous rangeing feature is nice for ranging moving tagets. It gives readings very fast. The optics are not as good at the leica or swaro, but I did not expect them to be so there was no dissapointment there.

As for the ranging capability I I think it is really good. In bright daylight I got consistent readings of 1150-1200 yards off of trees and bushes. With a good rest I was able to get 1285 yards off of trees in daylight. The only time I was able to range animals it was foggy so 650 yards was as far as I was able to see them. The farthest range I got with it was just before dark I ranged a tree at 1365 yards with no rest.

Hopefully I will get to range some animals next weekend and let you know. Overall I am happy with it especially for just under 400 bucks.

MTBA,
What was your final conclusion on that Nikon 1200 range finder?
