I'm just wondering how it will work in the field next to the other top brands. How was the glass and read out? when you played with it.
It's a little larger than the Lecia. Has multiple click adjustments for eye relief which is cool. I never took it out of the store to test outside so I couldn't see how fast it was at distances beyond 100 yards nor how good the glass actually was. Fluorescent lighting can be deceiving. The display was nice but I need to read the instructions, that weren't available at the time, to figure out the BIS. The carry case I saw was bulkier than the Lecia, Bushnell, and Leupold.
If the BIS works as stated I think the Zeiss be an excellent tool, if not, I'd take the Leica for the simplicity and compactness. As for the glass, IMHO it isn't as important unless your relying on it for both your range finder and binos; I use binos only pulling out my rangefinder for distance reading so I feel the glass used in the Leica or Bushnell devices is more than sufficient.
