Looking at purchasing a set of rangefinding bins and need some input.

 
I'm 90% a bowhunter and 10% muzzleloader/rifle hunter. From PA but I hunt out west every year.
 
Considering:
 
Leica Geovid hd-b 10x42
 
Swaro el 10x42
 
Zeiss Victory rf 10x45
 
I love my Swaro SLC's and would buy the EL's in a heartbeat but I don't like the fact that the EL's minium range is 33 yards. Now most shots under 33yds are pretty obvious but the difference from 20yds to 31yds is quite a bit. What are you guys thoughts about these three for mostly bowhunting.

Seems like way overkill for bow hunting ranges

I have an opti-logic micro II handheld but hate having to carry both bins and a separate rangefinder. Just looking to do an all in one unit.

Way overkill is just right for me.

I have had the Geovid HD.  But it was the last gen, not this newest one.  I currently own the Zeiss Victory.

Optically they are both fantastic.  The Zeiss ranges much faster and much farther.  I have reached 2000 yards with the Zeiss, only 1400 ish with the Leica I had. 

I would get hands on all of them if I were you and see which one fits your hands and eyes the best.  Optically any of them will be wonderful, and I am sure any of them will range plenty good for your needs.  I will be all about comfort and how they fit you.
