    As title, swaro, zeiss, leica. Lenses must be in good shape not too conserned about cosmetic damage. Just seeing what's out there. Thanks

    Buy Leica they give tremendous after sale service.
    Check old post on the forum about after sales service stories from members.
    An example being they completely refurbished my 20 year old bino to "to as new" condition free of charge and only took them about four weeks door to door.
    With Leica you actually get a lot more than what you pay for.
    No I don't work for Leica or Lacklands

    Hunting is relaxing just like Yoga except I get to kill something.

    i have three month old a pair of zeiss conquest hd 10x42 that i am keen to get rid of as picked up a pair of leica's cheaply. are these high end enough?
    they have been on one 10 day trip and were looked after like babies in a bino harness. zero marks anywhere, brand new condition with box/manual/receipt etc.
    would part with them for $1300 if interested as i don't need two pairs of good glass with one pair of eyes...

    I've got a pair of 10x42 Leica Geovid R's Meters in perfect condition that are 2~ months old. Could be convinced to part with for the right money (don't judge me till you know me, I have an addiction to glass) bought nz new for $3489.00

    Did you deal with Leica directly? I've got some ultravids that the rubber armor is coming off that need to be sent back at some point.

    I emailed Leica directly when I slipped crossing a river and drowning my rangefinder, they referred me to Lacklands [I didn't know about them then]
    Range finder was out of it warranty, however Lacklands gave me a brand new one for the money I got from the insurance.
    Couldn't fault that service. I have had another dealing with Lacklands to long to relate here but no fault of a product , that too was very satisfactory.
    I'd have no hesitation about contacting them instead of going to Leica directly for your sort of query LittleDave, though either way I think you will get good service.
