The images produced by the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8×42 Binoculars are sure to meet the high standards of even the most seasoned birders. They are exceptionally bright and sharp, thanks to the high quality lenses and Schott HT glass used in the prisms, whilst a sophisticated system of baffles keeps stray light to a minimum. The Ultravid also features a perfect balance between transmission and contrast, which ensures that images have rich colours, clear vision and the sharpest detail resolution possible.
These binoculars are wonderfully ergonomic, making them extremely easy and comfortable to use. The smooth focusing system, with only 1.25 turns, ensures safe, fast and precise focusing. Getting a perfectly focused image has never been easier! Observation with the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8×42 Binoculars is fatigue-free, relaxed and painless, due to the main weight of the binoculars being in the middle of your palm. Leica’s patented twist-up eyecups offer the greatest individual viewing comfort.
Leica’s Aquadura coating protects the optical systems from water, dirt and damage, making the Ultravid perfect for withstanding tougher weather conditions.
