You might want to look at the beam divergence of the G7 first if you are of the same though as I. The G 7 utilizes one of the largest beams out there. And for what its worth I have been hearing some of my friends using the G7 now reporting mis ranges as I reported in the review I did when I bought mine and compared its reading with a Vectronix.

Re: Range finder

thanks for the info Broz. The Leica is obviously MUCH cheaper and I have read that it has one of the tighter beams out there.

The two rifles I hunt longer ranges with have Kenton turrets on them anyway, accurate range is my primary concern, the G7 features would have been nice for some of my range guns though. I guess for the difference in price I can get another 7 turrets.....

Re: Range finder

I just started looking at the Geovid HD-B's due to another thread here. A buddy of mine has the older Geovids and they are awesome, these look like a serious contender for me.

I was looking at dropping some coin on some new 8 or 10X binos, I usually use 15X vipers or 20-60 Viper spotter on an outdoorsman tripod and relatively crappy 10X in hand while on the move (Diamondbacks).

The capability to put an SD card in with your parameters is pretty cool. I'll have to call tomorrow and get a price, local place does VERY cheap deals for guides (I'd buy under my friend)

Re: Range finder

In some cases Leica has ran a laser with larger beam divergence on some of the Geovids. So it might be worth checking that spec.
