    Rangefinder choice...Lupy or Leica

    So a mate has an unexpected chance to buy himself a rangefinder. He wants to range to 600. Tossing up between Lupy and Leica in similar price brackets.
    Your thoughts please gentlemen.
    Oh yeah. He has an intermittant eye issue, so does not want to go for Binos.

    Leica 1600 - nails any reading.

    Also get your angle, temp and pressure for your ballistic app real time.

    One of the best things I have ever spent money on.

    Went head to head against a swaro the other day and kicked its arse.

    Compact, waterproof, you get the idea...

    Just to offer a token counter-argument here...

    If you only want to range to 600, is it really worth spending Leica money or will something cheaper do the job well enough?

    Hopeless you lot. I have a good sense of direction and can find my own way to the range.
