Hey, is anyone planning on getting a pair of these? The reason I ask is because I have a friend who is a Leica dealer and if we get three or more of these we might be able to get a discount of around $100.00 off suggested retail. Suggested Retail for the 10x42's is $1,850.00 Suggested Retail for the 8x42's is $1,800.00 The Geovid BRF's are not going to be released until July 04, and from what I have heard is there is a waiting list building up and if you get on it right now you will get it by Sept 04. Here is a link: http://www.leica-camera.com/sportoptik/einsatzbereiche/orientieren/geovid/index_e.html The new Geovids are the size of a normal binocular, from what I saw at the shot show I am definitely getting a pair! They are also rated to range out to 1300 yards. The glass is excellent, I compared it side by side with Leica's other 10x42 binocs and I couldn't discern any difference in resolution and clarity. The Geovid BRF is a definite winner!
