Leica Ultravid 8 x 20, Leathered, Black

Leica compact Ultravids are brighter, sharper, more compact, more functional and robust than previous binoculars of this lens size.

There is no question that these compacts are true Ultravid-class. Almost all the Ultravid-elements that the developers could miniaturise found there way into these "mini-binoculars" which fit comfortably into almost any pocket. The use of asphericial lenses offers the observer a sharp image right to the edge whithout colour fringing and because of the short close-up distance these little Ultravids bring close up things even closer.

The 25mm and 20mm binoculars live up to the name "Ultravid" in the case robustness too: they are watertight up to 5m (16.5ft) and nitrogen filled to prevent fogging. The leather design gives the binoculars a classic elegance and guarantees a long life. The binoculars include a woven carrying strap, eyepiece cover, and leather zip-pouch.

The essentials:

  • 8x magnification
  • Aspherical lenses offeres a shap image to the edge
  • HDC multicoating and AquaDura coating on outer lenses
  • Fit comfortably in almost any pocket
