Upgrading my laser range finder and binos. Seriously considering a Leica 8x42 Geovid. The other option I am looking at is separate Leica items CRF 1200 and Ultravid 8x42HD. Soliciting pros and cons with the combo compared to going with separate units. Would appreciate any real world experience with these items. I have compared total weights 33.5oz Geovid vs. 35.7oz (both). Yes, 2oz does make a difference to me in the overall scheme. The money difference is not an issue. Primary concern is dependability under austere field conditions. I have already settled on Leica brand and size, no others are in the running. Thanks.
