    I have found both the leica 1600B and the Ziess reconditioned for 650. Which would you go with if you had the choice?

    Leica 1600 B hands down. Way better unit with a much more precise beam, small ranging reticle and easy to read display.

    Leica is smaller and ranges a little further but the zeiss holds steadier, has a better optic and ranges targets easier than the Leica, especially in rain, snow or sunny conditions. That being said though both are great units as is the swaro. I have owned and used all 3. Swarovski is the best of the 3
