In Pocket Versatility” Now Available in LEICA ULTRAVID Line
Hunting Gear- Leica, the German based optics company, has just raised the performance bar for compact binoculars. Four new compact binocular models in the ULTRAVID line will change the way users look at and buy pocket-sized binoculars. These new binoculars feature Leica's High Lux system
The four new models in the ULTRAVID line are 8x20 mm and 10x25 mm models in both black armored coating and leather-covered versions. A completely new designed optical system, using precise Aspherical Lens elements, delivers optical performance never before achieved in a compact binocular. This new system gives the user a much flatter field of view while reducing distortion on the edges. In addition, a closer minimum focus distance is created with this system. Increased eye relief allows for a greater field of view for those who wear eyeglasses.
The new LEICA ULTRAVID compacts incorporate Leica's proprietary High Lux System (HLSÔ) prism coating, which produces higher image brightness and greater contrast. Multi-coated lens performance is enhanced by new measures in construction such asymmetric diaphragms and advanced lens edge lacquering technologies. The result is unsurpassed light transmission and stray light reduction that delivers stunning lifelike images to the viewer.
The newly designed center focusing mechanism of the ULTRAVID compacts is positioned and ergonomically designed for easy, quick function. A new diopter adjustment system utilizes a single button and highly visible scale to allow the viewer to easily make precise and repetitive settings.
The new ULTRAVID compacts also feature the proven Leica double hinge system that has been improved with new stronger end stops. A new smaller bridge reduces size and weight of these handy binoculars that fold up into a small enough size to fit in a shirt pocket.
Like other ULTRAVID binoculars, the new compacts are nitrogen purged to prevent fogging. They are also waterproof to a depth of 16.5 feet. External lenses are coated with the Leica High Durable (HDCÔ) multi-coating to provide long-term protection against abrasion in the harshest of conditions.
LEICA ULTRAVIDS, along with all other Leica binoculars and spotting scopes, are covered by the best warranty in the business - Leica's Lifetime Passport Protection Plan. This exclusive protection provides "No Fault" product repair or replacement for the lifetime of the original owner. One benefit a Leica owner will likely never need.
Headquartered in Germany, Leica has been an acknowledged leader in the optics industry for over 150 years. Throughout that time, the company has built a solid reputation for producing high quality, durable products due to their commitment to optical perfection and mechanical precision.
