Thread: Leica geovid 1st generation

    Leica geovid 1st generation

    My brother has a pair of 1st generation Geovids 8x42 & they must be near 8 or 10 yrs old ?, dunnoe when first came out .
    Cricket they are a cracking set of binos, & never missed a beat and are ranging alongside a set of new swaro RF bins that were struggling to give a reading .

    Had a wee gander but I've yet to see a pair of 1st generation ones come up for sale .....anybody any recommendations were to keep looking ? & what do you think fair price would be ?

    Recent post on here said somebody had been offered a pair at 800 which is a snip. Haven't seen many for sale no wonder as they are so good, if you could get a good second pair under 1000 you would be doing well. My HD's cost me 1,500 6 years ago. Just keep looking.

    Two things to consider with older range finding binoculars -
    Do they range in yards or metres?
    Do they give a line of sight range or an effective horizontal range?
    Best regards

    suspect that was me ! Took me a couple of years and a lot of looking to find exactly what I was after. Great binoculars, built to last. To my eyes my Swaro's, non range finding, have the edge at dusk but it is marginal. It was a while ago but McLeods had a set of Geovids in 8x42s ??

    Take your time and eventually you will get what you are after.

    Cheers guys

    The thread on group buy for binos from the eurozone has got me thinking

    I have found a few pairs of gen 1 available in uk at a fair price .... But mmmm wondering if available from "euro zone " wether or not I could find an older pair over there maybe save some
    Anyone got any links for optics in Europe ?
