Re: Range finders

Not sure how much you want to spend but Leica has dropped the price on the 1600's to $650 in preparation for their new baby the 1600-B. That is a good price for what you get. Lot's of features.

The Bushnell 15-1600 is the only Bushnell product I would look at for any kind of LR work. It is an underrated performer IMO. I didn't get to play with it very long but it performed well and has gotten good reviews.

I don't think Nikon really offers any LR equipped RF's.

HTH,

Scot E.

Re: Range finders

Another vote for the Leica 1600 ... best RF in under <$1k!
