Retail Price $3350
With the Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD Plus Binocular, you'll see everything in ultra-clear detail. Best used as hunting or birdwatching binoculars, you'll be able to see even the most minute of details. Built with new fluoride (FL) glass lenses, the Leica HD Plus series delivers improved color fidelity and image contrast. These 42 mm Ultravids also impress due to the benefits of the new HD Plus models - the new Leica AquaDura FL, a "hydrophobic coating" which repels both water and dirt. This lens coating ensures clear visibility even in poor weather conditions. Droplets of rain simply roll off the lens, and fingerprints and dirt particles are much easier to remove. In addition, thanks to its increased abrasion resistance, Leica's AquaDura will protect your valuable lenses from damage even more effectively. The Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD Plus Binocular will keep delivering the ultimate viewing experience time after time - temperature mean nothing to the Ultravids' quality. The new focusing mechanism on the Leica Ultravid HD Plus models works with high-performance Teflon disks and almost no lubrication. This ensures constant smooth focusing - even at temperatures as low as -25°, where other binoculars may fail.
Increased light transmission With an antireflex coating and a reflective layer on the prisms, there's now an even higher level of light transmission on all HD Plus models - by at least a 3 %. This is especially important in poor lighting conditions, such as twilight - where image brightness is crucial.
Consistently smooth focusing Optimized material pairings and gliding discs made from extremely tough, high-performance plastic are used when constructing these Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD Plus Binocular. In colder conditions, the conventional "greased" focusing mechanisms often work with difficulty, and at higher temperatures they move too freely. In addition, these focusing mechanisms can sometimes feel "sticky", and at higher temperatures that grease can escape and run over the lens. With the optimized Leica focus, these risks have been eliminated.
