As far as optics go, Nikon is very high up on the list. Binoculars, riflescopes, rangefinders — you name it and the company does it, and does it well.
Nikon recently expanded its line of accuracy-driven laser rangefinders with the addition of the new PROSTAFF 7i Laser Rangefinder.
The pocket-sized PROSTAFF 7i utilizes Nikon’s ID (incline/decline) Technology and provides precision, speed and consistency out to 1,300 yards.

The PROSTAFF 7i readings are accurate to +/- .5 yard at 600 yards or less, to +/- 1 yard from 600 yards to less than 1,000 yards, and to +/- 1.5 yards at 1,000 yards and more.
Nikon’s PROSTAFF 7i Rangefinder displays ranges in .1-yard increments with a true 1,300-yard ranging capability. With Nikon’s HYPER READ technology, clear distances are displayed extremely fast regardless of how far away the target is. The measurement is displayed in about half of a second, guaranteeing a stress-free and accurate measurement with one push of the button. After eight seconds, it will automatically shut off to ensure a long battery life.
With ID technology, horizontal distances are given based on incline or decline shooting angles. The rangefinder also has Tru-Target Technology, which allows users to toggle between ranging modes.
In first target priority mode, the distance measured is the closest measured target, giving users a precise reading to the desired target.
In distant target priority mode, the distance displayed is the furthest target amongst a group of targets being measured.
In both of these modes, holding down the measurement button will give you eight seconds of continuous measurement readings.
The PROSTAFF 7i utilizes a waterproof design, making it ideal for extreme outdoor use, even in the wettest conditions.
The MSRP for the PROSTAFF 7i Laser Rangefinder is $299.95.
