The robust all-round favourite
They are almost as compact as 32 mm models and nearly as high-aperture as 50 mm binoculars. But the 42 mm Ultravids also impress due to the benefits of the new HD models - Leica AquaDuraTM and new FL lenses.
LEICA ULTRAVID 8 x 42 HD
The multi-talented binocular that delivers images rich in contrast both during the day and at twilight. The ratio of brightness and weight, of magnification and field of view, make this model perfect for any application.
New ergonomics for relaxed handling : the formed thumb supports on the rear of the 50 mm and 42 mm HD models ensure that the binoculars fit in your hands without slipping. The large central focusing device enables relaxed, natural handling.
Available colors and materials
All 42 mm models are available in black rubber armoring.
The Ultravid class
The Leica Ultravid class had already impressed with its outstanding tech nical achievements and its superior optical quality. Now, with the innovative Ultravid HD models with 50, 42 and 32 mm objective diameters, the Leica engineers have once again succeeded in setting new standards. The use of new, fluoride lenses (FL) further optimizes the color fidelity of the images. It has been possible to further increase the level of image brightness ?out compromising color fidelity and contrast which are often necessary. In terms of stray light reduction too, the refined HD models achieve new top-of-the-range performance, and thus once again underline the pioneering role played by Leica. As a further benefit, the Ultravid HD range has Leica AquaDuraTM, a new kind of coating for exterior glass surfaces which improves viewing comfort. Fingerprints and dirt can be removed more easily than ever. Moisture simply rolls off the surface and visibility remains unimpaired. This has been made possible by a special glass surface structure. In a similar way to the lotus plant, dirt and moisture find it more difficult to take hold. However, Leica AquaDuraTM does not have any negative influence on the transmission performance of the optical system, and also provides better protection against scratching. It was also possible to further optimize the focusing mechanism. So the functioning properties remain smooth ?ever the surrounding temperature. The end result makes the latest Ultravid HD generation the first choice for all nature observers who do not want to accept compromises in their binoculars, and who expect the highest level of performance. So experiencing nature is even more fascinating.
