I went to Cabela's today to look at rangefinders. I tried the Swarovski, Leica 1200 and the 1500 Bushnell. Unfortunately, I could only range about 65 yds. in the store. It was so crowded that I could not take them outside. Some observations made were: The Swarovski had an orange circle that was not very bright. The Leica seemed to work well and the display was bright. The Bushnell had a black display. It was also the fastest to read the distance. I asked the clerk if he had used the rangefinders. He had a very low opinion of the Swarovski. He said that the graphics were faint, operated slow and just plain did not do the job. The Bushnell would range animals out to 700 yds. and reflective targets over 1000 yds. The Leica was OK but any of the rangefinders with a red display did not work as well as those with a black display. Needless to say I did not spend my money. I want to wait for a bright sunny day when I can take the rangefinders outside and get some readings.
