Leica Duovid 8 +12 x 42

Two binoculars in one: the Leica Duovid 8 + 12 x 42

Leica heralds a new era in binoculars: The Leica Duovid 8+12 x 42 is the first high-end binocular worldwide that features switchable magnification. That makes it an outstanding choice for use in hunting, because it provides brilliant images, both at great distances as well as in critical poor light situations.

In wide-open hunting grounds, observation must often be conducted over great distances; The 12-power magnification is ideal for this purpose. The 8-power magnification, on the other hand, allows an excellent overview over the entire range - with an absolutely stable image, a large field of view and great depth of field. Outstanding ergonomics make vibration-free viewing possible even at high magnifications.

Because of its high twilight factor, you can still discern very fine details with the 12x magnification at the beginning of twilight. At night, the large exit pupil provides impressive image brightness at the 8x magnification setting.

The 8x magnification provides you with a good overview. By switching to the 12x magnification, you can then get really close to your subject and examine fine details - and that with astounding sharpness and color fidelity.

The essentials:

  • The handy all-rounder for observations for the most flexible use in various terrain
  • Calm, relaxed observation at 8x magnification, with large fields of view
  • Detailed even at distant distances at 12x magnification
