I have the redfield. I like it a lot. It's small and light and does what I need it to do. The only negative I have found so far with it, is that it has trouble ranging on a black target. When on the 3D range and needing to range a Black Bear or Warthog or Turkey target I find that I have to try a few consecutive times before it will pick up on the black target. At times I have had to just range a tree near the target or something else to get the range because the rangefinder just refused to pick up the black target. I have not had any trouble ranging any targets of other colors or so far any type of objects in the woods. Can't say I have tried it on a live black bear or turkey yet. For the price (got mine in Cabela's bargin cave for a good price). Can't say I know anything about the Nikon model you mention, but Nikon does make good rangefinders. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

Has anyone else that has the Redfield, had problems ranging BLACK targets???
