Sorry to post yet another Binocular related question but.....
I am try to decide between the Swarovski 8x42 EL and the 8.5x42 EL Rangefinder binoculars. What a wonderful decision to have to make right! I'm saving up and think I will be saving for quite some time!
Clearly the built in RF makes life a whole lot easier than having an independent RF. But my concerns are these. 1.) the added weight and bulk
2.) When you spend this kind of money on a pair of Binoculars, its a life investment and I have no doubts that the bino's will out live me but i'm sceptical that the electronics will last as long at the stand alone binoculars.
What I don't want is in 10 years time for the RF to give up the ghost and be left with a heavier and bulkier pair of EL's.
I already have a decent stand alone Range finder.
What are peoples thoughts who have them and any ideas about the warranty on the electronics in these things?
Thanks in advance,
