These Ultravid 8x42 Binoculars are a generation of binoculars with an improved optical performance that stands on the back of a history or design development and revolutionary optical manufacturing. These Leica HD-Plus Binoculars are amongst the smallest in their class and extremely lightweight, due to the die-cast magnesium body which is also very strong. The 8x magnification and large 42mm objective lenses allows plenty of light onto the prisms for stunning detail and allows for a wide field of view, which is excellent when trying to locate small animals or birds in the countryside.
Designed to be robust, these 8x42 HD-Plus Ultravids have a precise, fast focusing with only 1.25 turnarounds from closest focus to the furthest distance, ensuring that anything that is in sight, can be quickly focussed on, without it disappearing to soon. The large, ribbed focusing wheel is perfectly placed on the top of the binocular body so that it can be easily reached and used even when wearing gloves. Next to the focus wheel is the eyesight correction mechanism, that fine tunes the eyepieces of the 8x42 binoculars to the exact eyesight correction of your eye. The correction ranges from + or - 4 and is easily set by focusing the binoculars using the main focusing wheel and then lifting and twisting the correction dial until the subject in the eyepiece is pin sharp. Once the fine tune focusing is sorted, the dial locks into place and then doesn't move until it needs to be changed again.
The HD-Lens system gives perfect contrast and clarity and the high transmission glass and coatings produce the highest brightness possible, which gives the binoculars a real edge at dusk and dawn. The prisms of these Ultravid 8x42 binoculars are made from specially formulated SCHOTT glass which ensures exceptional light transmission characteristics through over 130 years of research and development. Each lens within the binoculars is ground and polished to such a high standard, any flaws or impurities within the glass are removed. Also, the increased light transmission for such a high quality product, particularly in the blue-violet band, ensures a higher image brightness for a heightened viewing experience. The fine quality optics also suppress any stray-light which can be distracting when viewing anything for long periods and can also reduce the amount of detail that can be seen.
If this weren't enough, the specially designed AquaDura coating repels dirt and dust as well as eliminating any fogging issues; this makes them perfect for the terrible weather we suffer.
The HD-Plus range Ultravid binoculars are available with 7x, 8x and 10x magnification and stand out with the new 'HD' engraving in red on the strap lugs of the binoculars. Supplied with cordura case, objective lenses covers, eyepiece coverts and carrying strap.
