Not sure if I got the spelling right on Geovoids, but on to my question....
 
Aside from the price does any one have anything they dont like about them. Ive been tossing around the idea of getting a set so that I would not have pack a pair of binocs and a range finder when in the field.

The only drawback I have found is the battery life if left in the unit.  If you leave the battery installed and don't use them for a month or so it will be dead when you go to use it.  So, either keep a fresh stock of batteries on hand or remove it after use.

Geovid
 
I have a pair of 10x42's and they have been great so far.  They did have to be sent in for service last year.  Took them on an Elk hunt last year and dropped them from just below shoulder height.  No external damage noticeable but one barrel stopped focusing.  Sent them in and got them back in about 4 weeks.  Good as new.
 
They are without a doubt excellent bino's.  I had the opportunity to sit in a deer stand with a friend who had a pair of Swarovski 15x56's (big SOB'es).  Switching between the 2 there was little discernible difference in clarity.  The Swaro's were a little brighter and the colors more brilliant but I enjoyed the Geovid's more because they were easier on the eyes with extended viewing and seemed to put you out there where you were looking.  Must have been the depth of field or something.
 
Haven't had the problem with the battery but have a spare just in case.

I love mine already, and only had them about a week. Rangefinder works as advertised. I ranged a small pine tree at 1328 yds. The glass is great. The ONLY complaint I could make is the weight, but the Geovids got a lot going on in there. If I had to carry binocs and a Rangefinder, I would be carrying the same amount of weight anyway, and have to put my binocs down to range a target. So far I wouldn't trade them for anything.
