the zeiss Victory PRF and Leica 1000-R CRF are similarly priced, though i think the zeiss is rated at 1300 and the leica at 1k.  which is better?  ease of use? quality of build? glass quality?  display readability?

Thanks in advance.

They are both great units with great glass.  The Leica is a lot smaller, that is a big plus in my book.

I have had both and liked both.  I have RF binos now as I prefer one unit. 

Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

i'd prefer the binos too, but i already own a decent pair of binos and the LRF binos are a bit outside my price range. 

i hadn't considered the size issue, thanks for bringing that up.

I too have had both. Zeiss is great it consistently went out past 1400 yds. I did sell it and bought a Leica 1600 and that thing is great. I love it. Spend a lil more and get the 1600 if your gona shoot shoot over a grand.

I don't believe the Zeiss has a corrected horizontal range function, it just gives you linear distance, maybe that's fine for your purpose but definitely a significant feature.  Leica's most recent 1000-R has "equivalent horizontal range" from 10-660 yards and then linear distance out to 1000+.  The Leica 1600-B has the ballistic arches (12 of them I believe) out to 500 yards and then does EHR from 100-880 yards and linear out to 1600+.  I think the Zeiss just does 1300 yards linear, still a very good range finder though.
