Thread: Rangefinder or Rangefinder binoculars

  1. #1

    Rangefinder or Rangefinder binoculars

    Looking at getting a rangefinder but got the nagging felling should spend more money and treat my self to a pair of rangfinding binos, currently go a pair of minox hg which are brilliant was thinking of getting a the ziess prf rangefinder but how well does this cope under the lamp and how accurate is it in such conditions?
    Or option 2 is to splash out and get a pair of ziess rangfinding binos
    What do you guys prefer separate rangefinder or combo as weight must be an issue if you have them around your neck all day?

    Suggest you look at the Leupold website.
    Or if you do not always shoot at last light the Burris eliminator, scope and rangefinder combined.

    Suggest you save up and get rangefinding bins. Then test what you can afford and buy the pair that suit you. Your looking at 1.5k to start but it will be money well spent.

    I chose Leicas over Zeiss purely on ergonomics/ease of use.

    You will not regret the purchase and will wonder how you managed without them.

    I had leica binos and rangefinder and sold them and bought the leica 8x42 rangefinder binos.
    Its great having the rangefinder and binos in one unit because when you spot something you can range it instantly.
    My mate has the zeiss rf binos and they are good also but I find the leicas easier to use as well.

    I tend to use a scope and lrf as its more compact than a pair of bins round your neck

    How do you find the rangefinders in poor light and under the lamp?

    I concur with Palo's comments - I have the leica geovids 8x42 and when you view you rangefind at the same time - one operation. The downside is the weight but I can handle that and if I am right the life time guarantee does not apply to both bino and rangefinder facility? Swaro has just brought a pair out - check this point with theirs as they are normally first class as regards warranty etc
