Leica 12x50mm Ultravid HD 12x Binoculars 40297 Product Info

The Leica Ultravid 12x50 mm HD Binoculars 40297 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 12 x 50 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 8 x 50 mm (40295) and 10 x 50 mm (40296), 12 x 50mm (40297).

Helpful Positive Review leica 12 x 50's by Legacy Reviewer, January 19, 2011
You get what you pay for with these. Lots of mag to see way out there, but can also focus as close as 10 ft. The only pair of portable binoculars I want for routine use. However, compact ultravids or Zeiss, may be preferable if you have to carry the...
