Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD

Leica ULTRAVID 8x42 HD

The multi-talented binocular that delivers images rich in contrast both during the day and at twilight. The ratio of brightness and weight, of magnification and field of view, make this model perfect for any application. The sensational close focus from 3 meters makes exciting views of closer animals and plants possible. With a field of 130 m at 1000 m distance, you have a good overview.

The 42mm Ultravids are almost as compact as a 32 mm and offer nearly as high an aperture as a 50 mm. There is not even a 10% difference between the 8 x 42 and 8 x 50 in calculated twilight performance.

General Infos:

Leica Ultravid are absolutely top binoculars. The Leica Ultravid binoculars have hermetically sealed and nitrogen-filled magnesium housings, plus a rugged rubber armour. They are therefore suited for rough outdoor use. There is no need to be concerned with moisture as they are 100% waterproof to a depth of 5m and the internal optical system is not subject to fogging. The Leica HighLux System HLS and a superior coating deliver an extremely high image quality. The formed thumb supports on the rear of the 50 mm and 42 mm HD models ensure that the binoculars fit in your hands without slipping. Also the large central focusing device enables relaxed, natural handling.

The Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD offers an excellent balance of magnification & light gathering ideally suited to those dusk & dawn users. Now with the innovative new Ultravid HD series, with 50, 42 and 32 mm lens diameters, Leica are again setting new performance benchmarks.

Leica Fluorit Optik Fluoride lenses

With the help of the new fluoride (FL) lens glass, in each Leica HD model, both the colour fidelity and image contrast are further improved. Optical FL lenses are to a large extent made up of calcium fluoride. Unlike conventional optical lenses, this creates a very low level of dispersion (light scattering) and corrects aberration (imaging errors) significantly better. So, as a result, the viewing experience is more natural and impressive than it has ever been before.

Leica AquaDura Leica AquaDura-Coating

The Leica AquaDura coating is a "hydrophobic coating" which, with its water and dirt repelling properties, ensures clear visibility even in poor weather conditions. Fingerprints and dirt particles are much easier to remove. In addition, thanks to its increased abrasion resistance, Leica AquaDura will protect your valuable lenses from damage even more effectively.
Leica Transmission Optik Increased light transmission

As a result of constant development of the anti-reflex coating and reflective layer on the prisms, it has been possible to increase the previously already very high level of light transmission by at least a further 3 %. The new Leica HD range now reliably combines an optimum degree of image brightness with a consistant level of colour fidelity.

Leica Innenblendensystem bei Ferngläsern
Excellent image quality

To eliminate stray or false light effectively, Leica has developed a special software-simulation, which makes stray light visible in the processing phase. Using this technology in the construction of the new HD-models has ensured they are optimised via advanced housing design, better light absorbing paint, apertures and stray traps, such that stray light is almost eliminated.
Leica Fokussierung
Consistently smooth focusing - whatever the temperature

The mechanics of the Ultravid HD focussing mechanism have been further refined and as a result focusing is even smoother and remains free of play across the entire range. Optimised material pairings and gliding discs made from extremely tough, high-performance plastic are used. In cold conditions conventional greased focusing mechanis sometimes only work with difficulty and at higher temperatures they move too freely. In fact these focusing mechanisms can feel "sticky" at higher temperatures and there is even a risk that grease can escape and run on the lens. With the new Leica focussing mechanism these risk have been eliminated, working paractically without lubricants.
Der Vorteil der Leica Fluorid Optiken:

Leica Fluorid Optiken Vergleich

Left image: good optics, but without perfect correction of dispersion. Color fringe and decrease in contrast are clearly visible.
Right image: the same bird through the Leica Ultravid BL - the contrast is stronger and the color fringe does not exist anymore - more details and contrast are the results.
