From my past experiences in the field with Leupold range finders... no
Get a Leica and don't look back.
You ought to use the 1000 i before you trash it. I think all Leupy RF's are junk too, with the exception of this one. I had one side by side all weekend with a client's CRF 1200 antelope hunting. The Leupold 1000i w/TBR would range things his CRF wouldn't. Not all the time, but several times throughout the weekend. The readout on the Leupy is much easier to see in bright sunlight too. There was never an instance when his would read and mine wouldn't. When they both got a reading, they were within 2 yards of each other every time. All this in the very worst possible ranging conditions....very hot, cloudless blue sky, very flat ground with sparse cover. I've owned the CRF 1200, and the Swaro 8x30. This 1000i is a different animal than the previous, and is excellent. I've used it 100's of times guiding hunters.
