    I don't mind the crf1600. I find the 7X zoom is pretty good.

    How far do you need to range?

    Played with some 20,000m models at show - bino versions

    I have some 1500m models if u want to try them

    Using a s/hand pair of bushnell fusions. the weight can be annoying at times but prefer it to having two toys.

    not so much the carrying of two items, but finding, then ranging and maybe loosing track of the game in between. sometimes second hand fusions come up for about half price.

    Allthough the Zeiss has proven more reliable over different weather conditions.

    If you can afford the $1600 for fusions it might be worth seeing if you can stretch another $400ish for some second hand geovids
    If my work annoys me, I cull them
