I was wondering about Bushnell and how good they were. Guess that answers that question.
I looked through a Nikon 440 and a Swarovski yesterday on a bright sunny day. The swarovski has a illuminated red circle thats hard to see on a bright day but the optics were FANTASTIC. Of course the price was sky high. The Nikon worked well and the optics were very good but was looking for a bit more range. Both units were within 1 yard of each other on everything we ranged.
The one thing I have noticed about most range finders is the 400 to 500 have 8X and the 600 to 1200 have 6X or 7X optics. Looks to me like it should be reversed. I am sure they have there reasons for doing it that way.
The Leica work well in rain or foggy conditions? I understood that was were the zip feature came into play.
