    Leica Geovid BRF 10x42 Rangefinder

    Guy's
    I am thinking of buying a pair of Leica Geovid BRF 10x42, but can not find any info on the range finding spec, everything else but
    Does anyone know the laser range on this beastie.

    Think its about 1200m but dont quote me on it,not sure if the HD model might be a bit more.

    1,300m or 1,400 yards

    Go to this link:

    http://uk.leica-camera.com/sport_opt...ars/geovid_42/

    and click on Technical Data - it will open up a pdf file with the full spec.

    Enjoy!

    They aren't as good as the swaro range finder.i got 1200y from my set but that was off a big big building. and thats what they are rated at.
    you will struggle to range small stuff out at 6 7 8 hundred yards it all depends on the weather / how bright it is and so on.
    i have swapped mine for the new Zeiss ones and boy what a difference they are the dogs dangles. far far better than the leica.
    go and have a look through a few sets and have a play with them.
    it is noticeable how much better the Zeiss are in glass and the range finder.

    Thanks Willie, got what I was looking for (1,400 yrds)
    camathias - I will have a look at your Zeiss bino's and let you know how I got on.

    Cant beat buying a new bit of kit.

    geovids

    I reckon if anyone's had all the bins , it's me, Griff will back me up on this one, I now have only geovid rangefinders & zeiss standard bins.

    I have the 10x42 Geovids non HD and they are great.

    There is a small plantation on a ridge that is 1300m from the larder door as long as you can see the trees you can range the plantation.

    The longest I have been able to range animals is 900-1000m.

    Wouldn't buy any others unless they were just as good but half the weight.

    I'm with Stand Buck on this.

    I bought a set a few weeks ago and they are the dogs bits....
