    Does anyone know how these 2 compare? Which is smaller? Which weighs less? Which one has the better optics/glass? I am trying to decide between the Leica Geovids and the Newcon LRB 3000 pro. I want to be able to range out to 1500 yards confidently. Some rangfinders are rated at 1500 yds on reflective targets, but I don't consider a groundhog as reflective so I want something that will get me there on a non reflective target. Any advice is appreciated.
    Thanks Bob

    The only comments I've seen that compare the two as well as the Swaro were from this guy:

    In short, the Leica has much better glass, but the laser won't get it done for you.
