I've used Swarovski 10x42s for the past 20 years. When they were coming out with the ranging binoculars at the end of 2011, I sold enough old gear in a week to put them on preorder. It looks like the price has gone up $300 since I bought mine. I love, love, love mine!
One of the best uses of the built in rangefinder was on my wife's sheep hunt. The rams were rutting and moving pretty quickly between bands of ewes. We were in huge open canyon country and the built in rangefinder was awesome for picking out features quickly as we were trying to set up quickly for a difficult shot opportunity. I don't think we would have pulled that of with a separate rangefinder.
Every time I have done warranty work with Swarovski, it has been ridiculously good. My first pair of SLCs had 10+ years of hard wear and use on them. When I got them back they looked like they were brand new. That completely sold me.
My last warranty work was on a spotting scope. I drove over my scope after spotting a big buck on the way driving in one morning. They did charge me but it was pretty minimal considering the level of squash-ed-ness I had given that scope…lol.
