    That is a fair price on a great binocular.

    i have been on the computer all day and my wife is making fun of me saying I'm so indecisive and can't ever make up my mind. I don't know if i should get the range finding binos or just get the El 10x42 since i have a leica rangefinder 1600 but now I'm thinking i should have a rangefinder with angle compensation in it. Help me!!! musket man already told me just get the el non rangefinder and be done with it.

    I personally dont mind not having it. It is a useful tool though for someone who wants it. I just have been around the mountains long enough that i take into perspective shooting at inclines and have for many years, so I feel i make the correct judgements when either shooting myself, or telling clients where to hold. . For someone who has not had much experience hunting in steep trajectory areas and doesnt understand that you must take angle into account for where you hold, It is definitely worth having. When i get out of guiding someday and get to spend more time hunting for myself, I probably will pick up a small rangefinder with angle compensation in it for my bowhunting. With rifle, you get a bit more lenience in where you have to hit an animal, whereas with a bow, misjudging a 40 yard shot for 30 because of the angle could cause you to plain miss or worse, wound an animal

    Wow great job jndeer, everyone needs to read that if looking at new binos. Do u ever wish u had a rangefinder built into the bino's? This is where I don't know what to do. The geovids B don't have that angle compensation till after 100 yards plus the Swarovski el range, the closest they range is 30 yards and plus the range button is on the right side, kinda hard to hold bow with left and range at the same time. Has anyone ever used the bushnell fusion 1 mile the new version. They have button on right side and also have angle compensation but don't know how the glass would be.
