Leica Ultravid 12x50 HD Binoculars

The 12 x magnification allows for great detail recognition over long distances. The new FL lenses increase the color fidelity and reduce color fringing on high-contrast transitions in images.

LEICA ULTRAVID 12 x 50 HD High-performance binocular with 50 mm objective lens diameter, 12 x magnification and a field of view of 300 ft. The Ultravid 50 series are ideal for viewing right into the depths of dusk due to optimized image per formance, thanks to new high-definition lenses and Leica AquaDura coating for greater visibility in poor weather conditions.

Leica engineers have once again succeeded in setting new standards. The use of new, fluoride lenses (FL) further optimizes the color fidelity of the images. It has been possible to further increase the level of image brightness without compromising color fidelity and contrast which are often necessary.

In terms of stray light reduction too, the refined HD models achieve new top-of-the-range performance, and thus once again underline the pioneering role played by Leica.

As a further benefit, the Ultravid HD range has Leica AquaDura, a new kind of coating for exterior glass surfaces which improves viewing comfort. Fingerprints and dirt can be removed more easily than ever. Moisture simply rolls off the surface and visibility remains unimpaired. However, Leica AquaDura does not have any negative influence on the transmission performance of the optical system, and also provides better protection against scratching.

It was also possible to further optimize the focusing mechanism. So the functioning properties remain smooth whatever the surrounding temperature. The end result makes the latest Ultravid HD generation the first choice for all nature observers who do not want to accept compromises in their binoculars, and who expect the highest level of performance. So experiencing nature is even more fascinating.
