Zeiss 8x26 T Range finder

I was originally set on either the Leica or Zeiss rangefinder binoculars, The Excellent Geovid by Leica or the Zeiss Victory 10x56 both rangefinder binos. When I saw the limited 5 year warranty on the two and figured if the electronics failed on either, I would have to send it in for repair and be without a fine set of eyes. Eagle Optics in Wisconsin also advised me on this possibility. I have since settled on the Zeiss 10x56 Victory as well as the Zeiss range finder as separate pieces. The combined price of both is still somewhat cheaper than a unitized pair. The Zeiss 8x26 rangefinder measures both in feet and meters as well as having a utilitarian ballistic compensator for hold over when rifle shooting. The Leica Rangefinder Binocular combo has a significant $400 premium to measure in feet as opposed to the European metric meter measuring system. The Zeiss 8x26 T rangefinder is small enough and light enough to fit a hunting jacket with no incumbrances. The Zeiss rangefinder also measures on the "release" of the push button allowing for better vibration free measuring. A steady hand and a delicate release when focused gives very accurate and repeatable readings. It is a "monocular" in the true sense but focus is sharp. I have measured a known 100 yard and 450 yard target from my property and readings are within 1-2 yards accuracy at 450 yards. Stepping backwards two yards from my 450 yard target yielded 452 yards as expected, definitely a fine and accurate instrument from the well known Zeiss optics.

Everything I wanted in a rangefinder. It adapts to a variety of situations, it is very simple to use, and it provides remarkable long range readings. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high end rangefinder.

Thank you so much for your easy to order website and quick shipment of the Zeiss Rangefinder. These were an early gift for my husband (and me as well) for one of his hunting trips early next year but we can also use it for deer season if needed this year. After comparing the top brands, the Zeiss outperformed Swarovski, etc... with regard to optics even though these do not compensate for the true ballistic distance due to angle. Basically, if you hunt and know what you're doing, you should be able to compensate for the angle yourself pretty much on the fly anyway. We're very pleased with them and with your company and would recommend both highly. Thank you and we'll do business with you again for similar hunting and/or other purchases.
