Thanks for the link you shared. With the passing of some more time, additional field experiences with the Fusion will be reported. Then we'll have a better idea of its value, relative to the Leica, Swaro, and to die-hard LRHs.

Re: Rangefinder Field Test: Swarovski 8x30 Laser Guide Vs. Leica CRF 1600 Rangemaste

I live in New zealand and I have had the crf 1600 for just over a month. The ranging is pretty consistent with what Porwah has observed. I have changed two units in the past month and they dont range consistently beyond 1100 meters. I also notice that consequtive readingsof barometric pressures vary by as much as 8 to 25 millibars. This is most obvious when you point the Leica in different directions wheb taking readings. The temperature reading is also not accurate as it varies with boady temperature if carried in a pocket.
The optics are great and almost on par with my nightforce scope.
Has anyone else on the forum noticed this inconsistency in barometric readings.
Thanks

I have owned both the leica 1600 and still own the Swaro, The Leica is good but the swaro is better. The swaro ranges further and far more consistent. It also holds alot steadier than the Leica.If the Zeiss PRF ranged a little further I would rate it above the Leica 1600 too.

Have you studied the Beam divergence and the affect of it for those 3 units? It might be interesting and could help you to not have the problems I have with the big beamed unit like the Swaro and Zess. I agree the swaro will return more numbers , especially off hand. But the problem is many times it is not what you intended it to range.
