Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8x42 Binoculars


Leica Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars are impressive, with their robust design, and contrast-rich optical design. Delivers superb performance under twilight conditions.

Experience nature in crystal clear razor-sharp detail. The Leica Ultravid HD-Plus series is a precise combination of state-of-the-art technology, new coating processes, innovative glass materials and the greatest optical know-how.

The 42mm Ultravids feature the unique Leica AquaDura™ coatings to repel water and dirt, for a consistent clear view. The innovative fluoride containing glass (FL) is used for the highest color fidelity.

The ergonomic design of the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus includes formed thumb supports on the rear of the 42mm HD models, to ensure that the binoculars fit in your hands without slipping. The large central focusing device enables relaxed, natural handling.

8x binoculars deliver the optimal ratio of magnification and stability for most users, which is why they are so popular. If you need a bit more magnification, we recommend the 10x model. Higher magnification will make things a bit closer (not a lot), and also magnifies your shakes and jiggles more, while providing a smaller field of view and reduced brightness under lower lighting conditions.
