Which would you pick? New Zeiss Victory or Leica CRF 1200

The reason I ask is because I can get either one for the same price and would like to hear from some people that have maybe had experience with one or the other or both.

Mostly interested in how far they range in the bright sun and against snow.

Thanks fellers

you should get the Zeiss hands down. Mostly because we need someone to buy it and do some extensive testing on it lol.

honestly I couldn't say, but the Zeiss looks very promising. I'm hoping that it is the same as the CRF simply because I just bought a 1200 crf last year.

good luck.

I've got a Leica 1200 CRF.
I'd 100% recommend it . Unless you want to get into a 2000+ yard range finder, you'll have trouble finding anything better.

So, how far can you range in the mid day sun just at a hillside or trees? Where I hunt there isn't much of anything that is flat so not really worried about picking up small things at a distance.

I've hit up to 1400 yards with mine.

Tikka,
Gotta say the Swaro will go a mile+ around here.

In North Dakota, sunshine, and snow, they are all ****.

Sorry, don't have anything on the two you're asking about other than the researh I did showed the Swaro the hands down winner for distance.

Good luck! Let me know what you find out.
