    Leica and Lackland Service

    Just thought Id post it up how stoked I am with the service given to me through Lacklands and Leica.
    I dropped my Geovids down a scree slip early this year. Scratched every lens and gave the armour a good scuff up. After contacting Lacklands they were shipped off to Auckland on the 18th of September. Just turned up now, less than 1 month after sending. I read somewhere Leica service was slow? Not this time.
    Thank you Lacklands and thank you Leica. Awesome service.

    That is bloody excellent
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I've yet to be sent a bill. Fingers crossed .
    It looks as though the damage was not economic to repair and Leica just sent a new pair? Serial numbers are different.

    Lackland's service has beenfirst rate for me as well
    I slipped while crossing a river, had my leica RF on my belt, it was one of the original small 1000 , they had no warrenty against water damage back then and it was out of it's warrenty anyway.
    I spoke with Lacklands and they gave me a brand new 1200 model for the price of the insurance on my old one.
    I've posted about this before but they were so helpfull especially when they had no need to be it's worth mentioning again.

    Cool.

    What is leicas official warranty anyway?

    I have a pair of geovids that have a faulty diopter adjustment on one side, my eyes are getting worse by the day and i kinda want to adjust it but the sucker wont turn.

    Just emailed them so hopefully i will get some good news.

    A few years ago now, I bought a brand new second hand CRF1200 of TM.

    After a few months of using it I found it had a bit of oily metal swarf in it on a lens from manufacture.

    I took it to my local sports shop they sent it to Lacklands with a nice note, it went away to Germany & was replaced

    Not even sure if it was sold new by Lacklands going by the price I paid for it.

    Top service from a top brand

    Can't you close your eye with the working one and adjust center wheel then swap eyes and adjust diaoptr like normal?

    errr no, because the right hand side does not adjust, its seized solid so now my right eye is slightly fuzzy and i cant correct it but the left one is sharp as. there is two individual diopter adjusters

Focus on the exact same spot and adjust till in focus with the WHITE diopter adjustment ring. Now both left and right should be in focus for BINOCULAR vision. This is the same deal for al binos I have had.

    I didn't think it would have two diaopters and a center wheel. It would be like two adjustments for the same thing.
