Both optical and mechanical components are subjects to stringent quality standards, packaged and delivered to you - in Leica's unmistakable elegance and classic design.
Leica Ultravid 8x42 BL Binoculars
The Leica Ultravid 8x42 BL Binoculars are especially elegant and reflect the legendary status of Leica's Ultravid binoculars. Weighing in at just under 700 grams, it's both compact and robust.
Strength and Durability
The Leica Ultravid 8x42 BL Binoculars are housed in a shell made of magnesium and titanium. These are the strengths of the 42 mm Ultravid lightweights. With housing manufactured completely out of magnesium and an articulated axle made of high strength titanium, you're guaranteed both a long life and an ultra light weight pair of binoculars.
Easy To Use
Easy to use and extraordinarily elegant: the newly designed central focusing device is a functional achievement. Technical precision is hidden in the most compact of spaces. This new Ultravid 8x42 BL binoculars with scale facilitates easy reading of the diopter values and the large focus wheel is simple to use. The extremely short focusing path of slightly more than one rotation allows the optimum point of focus to be found quickly. Its 130 m/389 ft field of view at an 8x magnification delivers images rich in contrast during the day and at twilight.
Fully Multi-coated Lenses will increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces of the Leica Ultravid 8x42 BL Binoculars. In addition, these binoculars have been engineereed with phase correction to enhance resolution and contrast through its crystal clear roof prisms. Futhermore, the Dielectric Prism Coatings optimize light transmission - there's nothing better than the Highlux-System HLS coatings.
The Leica Ultravid 8x42 BL Binoculars are both waterproof and fogproof. Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the binocular. In addition, barrels are filled with nitrogen gas to inhibit internal fogging. Leica's AquaDura lens coating repels water and residue on outer glass surfaces.
Fitted with roof prisms encase in an aluminium body coated in leather trim, you can be sure that you'll appreciate its streamlined shape, durability, sturdiness and comfort - all in one compact package. It also comes inbuilt with multi-position eyecups for comfortable viewing, with or without spectacles. The center focus wheel will adjust both binocular barrels simultaneously and the locking right eye diopter will adjust for differences in your eyes - and is located right next to the center focus wheel.
