Optics quality of the Leupold RXB-IV rangefinder binos

Hi

Thanks for your advice on this informative forum.

If possible please, could you put me in the "ball park" by identifying some binoculars you consider to have equivalent or similiar optics quality of the RXB-IV range finder binos.

With the new RX-1000TBR compact rangefinders at about $400, the optics of the RXB-IV would have to match or better those of the Monarch ATB, Leupold Katmai, Eagle Optics Ranger SRT, SRT, BR, Celestron Noble, Alpen Apex, Pentax DCF HRII, DCF Hrc, Carson XM-832HD, and Swift HCF Audubon 828 for me to consider the purchase of the "all in one" RXB-IV.

I'm looking for a mid sized binocular for hunting and general use and am mindful of weight. I am open to magnification of 8-10x and an objective lens of 32-44 mm. My bino budget is the popular $300 or so mark.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Optics will be in that same general ball park, i.e. a $300 bino, but if you are concerned with size and weight, I would recommend getting a conventional bino and carry a small LRF monocular for that 1 or 2% of the time you actually need an LRF. That is the most used system by folks who use an LRF. Why sacrifice handling for that other 98% of the time you are using the bino, carry all that extra weight and bulk in a binocular and also settle for a much lesser warranty because of the electronics? Your choice, of course.
