Leica 8x42mm Ultravid HD 8x Binoculars 40293 Product Info

Leica Ultravid 8x42 mm HD Binoculars 40293 offer big picture in a small package. These Binoculars by Leica have been remade and perfect to give you the best looking picture and color quality available. Now, with the innovative Leica Ultra-Vid HD 8 x 42 mm Binoculars, the Leica engineers have once again succeeded in setting new standards.

New fluoride lenses in combination with a particularly small housing made from robust magnesium make the Leica Binoculars ideal for anyone wanting to be out and about especially during the day with excellent optics but not much equipment. The newly developed AquaDura Coating by Leica reduces fogging and allows moisture droplets and dirt to simply roll off ensuring clear visibility - even in wind and rain. As with the leaves of the lotus plant, droplets of rain simply roll off the lens, and fingerprints and dirt particles are much easier to remove. The Leica Ultra-Vid HD Binoculars feature increased light transmission thanks to an optimized housing shape, improved light-absorbing paint, apertures and stray light traps; the construction of the new Ultravid HD Binoculars by Leica have been optimized to such a degree that stray light is (almost) no longer of any significance.

All Leica Ultra Vid HD Binoculars feature consistently smooth focusing, whatever the temperature may be. In cold conditions the conventional greased focusing mechanisms sometimes only work with difficulty, and at higher temperatures these Leica Binoculars move too freely. Furthermore, these focusing mechanisms can feel "sticky", and at higher temperatures there is even the danger that grease can escape and run on the lens. The mechanics for the Ultravid HD focusing have been further refined. As a result, focusing is even smoother and remains free of play across the entire range. Optimized material pairings and gliding discs made from extremely tough, high-performance plastic are used. These Binoculars by Leica are available in 7 x 42 mm (40292) and 8 x 42mm (40293), 10 x 42mm (40294).
