DESCRIPTION

Main information about Leica Optics Ultravid 8x42 HD-Plus Customized Binocular 40078

Leica's 8x42 Ultravid HD-Plus Customized Binocular gets an elevated upgrade from their standard rubber armor models with calfskin leather wrap on the optical tubes, titanium-colored aluminum accents, and a calfskin leather carrying bag made specifically for this edition. This customized version presents an elegant and refined look while delivering the precision and performance that defines Leica's flagship binocular series.

Like the standard versions, the Customized edition delivers bright and clear high-contrast images across the entire field of view with true color rendition and virtually zero distortion. The mid-range sized objectives deliver extended low-light performance versus smaller versions, while the size and weight are kept reasonable for comfortable all-day use without causing arm or neck fatigue. Keeping the magnification to a moderate 8x provides a wide sweeping field of view that, when combined with the optical performance, produces an immersive observational experience.

Leica employs specially formulated SCHOTT HT glass, which increases light transmission especially in the blue-violet light band, improves color fidelity, and enhances low-light performance. Scratch- and abrasion-resistant High Durable Coating (HDC) and hydrophobic AquaDura coating on the outer lenses protect surfaces and cause water and oil to bead off for easier cleaning and clearer vision. The roof prisms feature P40 phase correction and proprietary High Lux System (HLS) coatings. These coatings virtually eliminate chromatic aberration for enhanced color rendition and increased contrast.

Complementing the optical performance are uncompromising construction details. To reduce user fatigue during long glassing sessions, the chassis is made of a lightweight yet durable magnesium alloy, with a high-tensile titanium center hinge axle. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled for fogproof performance and sealed to make the binocular submersible to 16 feet. Ergonomic thumb indents on the bottom of the binocular coupled with protective rubber armoring provide a comfortable slip-resistant grip. A lubrication-free focus system provides fast and precise focusing, with PETP-Discs to provide smooth movement throughout the broad operating temperature range.
