I an considering the Leica Rangefinder Geovid BRF 10x42 Binoculars, any comments or has anyone had their hands on a pair. I have not even been able to find a review.

Any help appreciated, Robert

I haven't used the new "consumer" BRF, but it sounds interesting. I have used the original military Geovid that also has the compass. It's Heavy. Big. and Slow. Each reading takes several seconds. You can range a very long way with them, but to do so with any accuracy requires that you have them on a tripod or rest. The "consumer" model actually seems better, like they took their Rangemaster 1200 and put it in a bino. I have the 1200 and love it, so I suppose that's a good data point.

Well, I've got the new 10x42 Ultravids (binos only) and a LRF 1200. If they could stick the LRF1200 in the Ultravids, it would be awesome. The Ultravids have excellent field of view, whereas I'm searching for the targets with my 7x LRF.

I have not yet laid hands on the New Geovids.

This years production will most likely go to dealers that placed orders for them last year. If you want one it would be a good idea to get on our back order list by ordering one on line asap.
