Leupold RX-1000 TBR V Leica CRF range V Zeiss Victory

Postby craig on Tue Mar 17, 2009 5:46 pm

I am having difficulty finding any objective reviews of the new Leupold RX-1000 TBR.

I am considering the new RX-1000 TBR with the Leica CRF range but am mindful that for a little extra $$$ over the CRF I could purchase the Zeiss 8 X 26 Victory rangefinder with BIS.

If you have had a chance to handle the RX-1000 TBR, what features do you consider these 3 rangefinders have has strengths and weaknesses.

I am not convinced I need the TBR or BIS technology however if the Leupold or Zeiss offer reasonable value in optics quality "must have" the TBR/BIS would be a "nice to have" extra.

:roll: I guess ranging quality is more of a must have then optics quality in a rangefinder.

Thanks in advance. :wink:

I have a Leupold RX-1000 and I like the size and clarity, but the reticle is too bright, even at its lowest setting. I think the Leica CRF 1200 is the finest rangefinder made in terms of clarity and performance in a compact package, although I have had occasions that I have used the slope, or TBR feature, which Leica does not offer. If you're hunting flatlands, the Leica can't be beat. If you'll get into some cliffs, the Leupold with the TBR is the way to go. You'll sacrifice some optical quality, though. The Nikon is a bit clumsy for my tastes.
