I guess that I am pretty much in the same boat as britz. Like the Lieca, if I do it agan I will get the swaro

Re: swarovski vs leica

I owned both the Leica and Swarovski laser range finders and for the long range enthusist the Swaro is the clear winner and it's not even close IMHO. In the bright desert sunn the Leica would not consistently range past 600 yards while the Swaro have no trouble going to 1,000 plus yards and in goodighting conditions the Swaro does 1900 plus. I have ranged Elk with the Swaro to 1800 plus yards and the glass is better in the Swaro, but for binoclars I';ll take Leica 24-7

Re: swarovski vs leica

I just got a pair of swa 15x56 binos. i went in thinking i was going to buy the leica 15x56 geovids but after looking in both of them side by side the swa where way brighter and 899.00 cheaper. i all ready had the swa laser guide for my range finder and loved it. but i wanted a back up. after i got to thinking about it if the range finder in the geovids was to break you would be with out both your binos and range finder at the same time. so with the money i saved buying the swa 15x56 for 1999.00 i got another swa laser guide for a back up. and after my antelope hunt i would pay 3000.00 for them if that's what they cost. by for my best money i have ever spent on glass
