I have a Leica and the reason I bought it was because the optics are so much better,especially at dusk and dawn.I gotta be honest though,I'm not nuts about the way it ranges.I get a lot of no readings and it's completely worthless in the slightest bit of mist or fog.I bought my son a cheaper Leupold and he can almost always get a range when mine won't.

I have no complaints on my older bushnell. If you are looking to have your RF pull double duty and replace you binos then sure spend more for better optics but if carrying other glass too I wouldn’t bother.

The field of view is too small to really use a rangefinder as a glassing instrument.
Stetam and tdd like this.

I tend to agree but you’ll hear many comments going the other way

I broke my Opti-logic 2 years ago and bought a HaloXRT7 that I have Zero complaints about. On sale with a coupon and a rebate it only ended up costing about $75. Works fine for bow hunting, never tried using it at really long distance?

I was just researching this rangefinder. What color are the reticles and how does it work in low light ?

In low light the reticle and read outs are in red so if you have enough light to see your animal tru the viewfinder you will be able to see the distance. When it gets lighter out readout is in black.

Both of mine have the red read out, can adjust brightness of display, length of shot or height compensation, battery life display. I had the 1,000 first, only reason I got the 1500 was because I bought a long range rifle and the 1000 would max out on deer size targets around 700 yards.
