Bear gear: Swarovski EL Range 10x42 W B binocular

I have used virtually all of the rangefinder binoculars out there at one point or another, and the new Swarovski EL Range 10x42 W B binocular is something else again. Even in dim light I was able to get accurate readings off a pronghorn's body out past 1000 yards, and off a bright object like a tree or hillside at almost a mile. They're lightweight, rugged, and the quality of the glass is as good as it gets. They are not cheap — you can find them for about $2800 retail — but this is a tool you will have the rest of your life. If you are in the market for a rangefinding bino, make sure you check this puppy out before making a final decision.
