I have the swaros and I bought them after I had the leicas. Swaros have angle compensation. Cant think of anything else you would want in a pair of binocs. Archery guys say they are not good at short yardage though.
Sorry, I have no info on the bushnell ones. I do believe they make them though. I believe they would not hold their resale value though.

Zeiss makes them. Zeiss Victory RF I think they also have a ballistic calculator in them. I can't afford them, but they look nice.

Bushnell does make them and they work, I was not impressed with the clarity of glass. I have messed with the Swaro's, Leicas and Bushnells rangefinding binos. I was very impressed by a set of the new Swaro's, we could range telephone poles over 1200 yards. Two of my hunting buddies have the Bushnells and they both love them. I liked the Leicas, but preferred the Swaro for the same cost. However, I know a guy who sold his Leica's for Swaro's and says he regrets it. Never messed with the Zeiss. I do not have a combo set myself, yet... due to cost.
