Leica Noctovid 8×42 Binocular

$2,599.00

The Leica Noctovid 8×42 Binocular combine the highlights of the most proven and state-of-the-art technologies. Thanks to the Schott HT™ high transmission glass for the binocular prisms already utilized in the Ultravid HD-Plus optics, the Noctivid also features maximum transmission and astoundingly natural colors. In general, we prefer 8’s over 10’s for depth of field and ease of use for most people.

More than a century of experience in the development of long-range viewing instruments, microscopes and cameras has led to a new family of Leica premium binoculars: the Noctivid binoculars. They feature compact dimensions as well as stylish and elegant design and are at the same time incredibly robust and resilient.

These binoculars set new standards in their design. The slim binoculars can be held comfortably with one hand. Thanks to their short overall length, the weight is ideally balanced and rests mostly in the palm of the hand for fatigue-free viewing. The Noctivids are made with a dual-hinge/open-bridge that provides added gripping surface area while reducing the overall weight without sacrificing strength or stability.

Its chassis is made of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy that, when combined with the bridge configuration, further reduces the weight while shifting the center of gravity to the natural hand position which translates to an improved handling experience with greatly reduced fatigue – allowing you to hold the binoculars for extended periods of time. To withstand the rigors of extensive outdoor use, all of the metal surfaces are treated with a proprietary varnish coating to resist corrosion and wear, and the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be fogproof, waterproof, and submersible.
