I notice they sell rangefinders but do these things also function as binoculars?

If they don't then why does anyone buy just a rangefinder or just a binocular for hunting? Seems to me range-finding binoculars would be the only way to go.

Ouch, $1549-$3149 depending on the power and size. I bet they are nice.

Ditto. I made the decision a long time ago preparing for an elk hunt that I didn't want both. I wanted one unit to do it all. At the time, Leica was the only one in the market that offered a range finding binocular. Now Swaroski is in the game. I wouldn't hesitate to own either, but I will say that Leica having their range in red makes it much easier to read in low light conditions.

It's the best piece of hunting equipment I've ever purchased!

I've thought long and hard about selling mine and going to the HD-B models for the instant ballistic output and range.

I used the geo's a lot last 2 years in CO. But the HD-B is a big step up not only ballistics but ergonomics wise. I was about to buy the hD-B but holding off to see what Swaro does in May.

Lecia also has large feild of veiw

Think g7 did the program so it should be pretty functional

I picked up a set of the Swaro EL 10x42s last year, and ran with them this season. It's a tough pill to swallow, but 100% worth it. Best addition to the bag in years.
