    Has anyone heard if Swarovski will be coming out with a Binocular/rangefinder like the Geovid?

    Haven't heard of one, but I would probably sell my 10x42s or 10x50s and my Laser Guide for a pair.

    I am in the market for a pair. Looking at what Leica and now Zeiss has I sure hope that swarovski will follow with something. I am currently using seperate units- Leica rangefinder and swarovski bino's.

    yeah, I use separate units as well. I thought of duct taping my range finder to my binos to make one unit! Haha just kidding.

    I have a friend who has a pair of the Leica Geovids. He actually has two pairs, but he ran the one pair over with his truck! They are a very nice, and like most will agree, I couldn't tell a difference in clarity when comparing them side by side with my Swarovskis. The one thing I did notice, if I remember correctly, is that it took a little bit longer for the rangefinder to shoot a range and a stand alone range finder. I'm not talking about a ridiculous amount of time by any means, just a tad bit longer.

    Looking at the Leica's and the zeiss Victorys I am leaning towards the Zeiss. I bowhunt as well and Leica has the button on the wrong side of the unit for a RH shooter. doh!
