Leica Vectronix Rangefinding Binoculars ( long very long Rangefinding. )

3 posts in this topic

Question to long range target shooters out there.

What's your take on Leica rangefinders.

They are expensive that's for sure.

I'm looking for a rangefinder that can measure at least 2500 yards, 1 1/2 miles & further.

Their are 2 models that I'm looking at, the first one is the Vectronix Vector IV 7x42 Rangefinding binocular & the second one is the Vectronix Vector 23 Rangefinding binocular 906098

Please express your views only if your into long range shooting & own or have used one in this field.

Thank you.

I cannot give informed information on ranges your posting on but I do know that Leica is the finest optics in the world their engineering is cutting edge from the the late 1800's many family names involved in optics as scopes and cameras including military high resolution when I think Leica I think quality.

When it comes to optics Leica is not the only one that's high end.

Carl Zeiss is used by Hasselblad.

Canon.

Nikkor Nippon Kogaku Japan part of Nikon.

All these company's I consider high end.

I own Hasselblad, Leica & Nikkor Nippon Kogaku Nikon gear.

Like them all for their quality in optics.

    • TP searching, finding, sending, retrieving, archiving are not functions of AI. Using a voice recognition "personal assistant" to do them is...when you type in "phone" and it starts to give you suggestions that change as you continue to type, that is AI (and these are increasingly user specific). The issue is when the AI in the personal assistant with an open mic catches "keywords" like gun, Christ, flat tax,freedom...then gets good enough to do "key phrases" like " I don't care if they pass that law I'm not turning in my gun, they don't even know about the S&W..." then archives them under your personal record that while not " ...containing individual personal info ..." On your identity has all the info stored in pieces unconnected so as to not be an actual "identity" but a few keystrokes from it. When you are being Phished, Catfished, targeted, or engaged by these (and you are....those clumsy emails and ads) they can argue that it is an attempt to better serve you as a consumer. The real issue is the use of the data and info gleaned, gathered, or stolen by these AI programs and those who have it.... The FBI has already attempted to subpoena audio from open mics on Google products, now I know as a LEO you can see the advantage of access to these to stop criminals, rescue stolen children, catch drug dealers and rapists....but as the saying goes "we can't throw out the baby with the bath water" or "start down that slippery slope" and if we " wait to burn that bridge when we get to it" we will be on the wrong side with no way back...and " up {#^+ creek without a paddle"....
    • I can remember phone booths and dropping a dime, rotary dial phones and  real operators who actually connected your call and person to person long distance.  I can also remember when prefixes came in before we had numbers like Lincoln 5-5555 exchanges.  I am starting to feel like I need a shot of geritol LMAO
    • I well remember the quizzical looks from younger police officers, in several classes I was teaching. I spoke of having a “knife fight in a phone booth”, and got crickets and thousand yard stares. Then I found (after lunch), online photos of phone booths with sliding doors, and also had to explain the term, “dropping the dime”, to them.  AI can be a wonderful thing, IF, used correctly.  Alas, it will not ever be used for good. The good old days, just got a lot more distant.....
