Default Leica Geovid HD-R dealer

Looking to get my hands on a pair of these to see what they feel like and maybe compare to some Swarovskis. Does anyone in the Camrose area have a pair I could possibly handle for a minute or any dealers that carry them.

Think super nice optics, and just a little heavier...

Since Wholesale closed up there isn't really a Leica dealer that has much stock. McBains in Edmonton carries Leica but they need to bring in pretty much anything you need to look so it would be tough to ask if yo just wanted to get a feel for them. I sold mine and went back to the CRF and a pair of Duovids because being left eye dominant I didn't like that the readout only shows in the right eye piece. I can get a range way faster with the CRF by putting it up to my left eye, even though they aren't really any faster at ranging if you are right eye dominant. Other than the eye issue they are a great piece of kit, excellent glass in the HD version, great rangefinder and no heavier than a standard set of equivalent Leica binoculars. Hopefully someone with a set will join in.

Did not realize Cabela’s carried Leica. Don’t see it on their website.

Default Leica

I have the 3000 HDB 10x42 and they exceed all my expectations and they are exceptional glass,cabelas has stopped carrying all Leica products,since bass pro purchased cabelas,the biggest prob with the Leica imo is the terrible lens covers,def a huge error again from Leica.but not a deal breaker to me.
