I'm down to deciding between these 2 similarly priced rangefinders. I've searched all over the net /youtube for an unbiased comparison & no luck. Looking for some insight to help in my decision.

I had a problem seeing through the Nikon with sunglasses on - everything was pretty much too dark to see.  It's almost as if Nikon put an extra polarizing filter on their lens that was interfering with the sunglasses I was wearing.  If you would turn the Nikon 90 degrees, you could see through it.

I'm not certain if it was a problem with Oakley prizm lenses also or just polarized lenses, but I never had an issue using sunglasses with Bushnell or Precision Pro rangefinders.  It was fine without sunglasses - just something that you may want to test first if you have the chance.

I would think if it was a common problem with the Nikon rangefinders I would have heard about it somewhere when I was researching, but I'm the only one I know of that had that issue.  Been using rangefinders for 17 years without a problem, but had that same issue testing 3 different Nikon 80is.
