  • 5.2° Angle of View
  • Made in the European Union

The Ultravid lineup of fabulously svelte binoculars from Leica has been extended to include the compact segment of 8x20 and 10x25 "dual bridge" models.  These are initially offered in black with either rubber or leather exteriors, and of course the Trinovid line with its many color options is still available.  A major improvement of the Ultravids, beyond their improved shape and increased brightness, is its waterproof and fogproof housing.  Now you can take your compact Leica binocular with you in the most ardent climate extremes of humidity, temperature and precipitation without concern for their performance!

The two options listed here as recommended accessories will not abrade your clothing; select the first option if you wish to have the smallest possible case and don't mind folding the binoculars in when done observing, and select the second case if you wish to have no restrictions upon your interpupillary distance adjustment when returning the binocular to the case.

      The best compromise for 1-binocular use

        Comments about Leica 10x25 Ultravid Binocular (Black Rubber):

        I do not make extensive use of binoculars. I want only one that is compact enough to serve as opera glasses and powerful enough to use comfortably from the railing of a ship or in a wild-life preserve. The Ultravid 10x25 fits the bill for me. The 8x25 may work as well for someone with a need for greater compactness (about 1 inch shorter), but I chose to not sacrifice power. Theaters and preserves tend to be bathed in bright light; consequently, I saw no need for an 8x40. Others may wish to sacrifice compactness to gain the latter's light gathering power. The Leica Ultravid 10x25 is as sharp as this manufacturer's lenses. I can't imagine better. When the user is not wearing glasses, the binocular's diopter wheel offers perfect compensation for a brilliantly sharp image. When one wears glasses, the diopter should be left on zero. You will still find good relief with your ability to hold the binoculars about 2/3 inch from your eyes. Although power 10 is about the limit of hand hold-ability, I find the image quite stable. Focus is close enough for my purposes, but I do believe the 8x25 allows closer focus. This is my perfect one-binocular solution.

          Comments about Leica 10x25 Ultravid Binocular (Black Rubber):

          First impressions are not as reliable as an analysis based on extensive use, but the first impressions on the 10x25 Ultravid are so positive that I'm hopeful they won't be fleeting. These are my first Leica binocs. I've used them on a few hikes and have found them to be sharp as a tack and surprisingly bright. The latter is a real plus when daylight starts fading. The build seems to be of the high quality that the price should command. I found them easy to get used to in terms of focusing and keeping steady -- it is important to anchor the binocs to your head by whatever position of hands or fingers seems natural and comfortable to you. Be sure to use the diagram in the user manual to fasten the caps to the supplied strap. Clever, convenient, and sure to keep you from losing the caps. The case seems a little on the large size considering the wonderfully compact size of the binocs, but that slightly loose fit makes getting the binocs in and out of the case easy. I hope I'm as happy with these a year from now as I am now.

          Comments about Leica 10x25 Ultravid Binocular (Black Rubber):

          I wanted a very high quality, high(er) powered set of binoculars that were portable/"pocketable" yet bright and rugged. Of all the various Leica products I have had over the years, this is another product from them that fits the bill perfectly. It takes a little getting used to holding them steady, but the focus knurl is in the correct place for ease of use, these are very bright and provide an almost 3D effect due to the outstanding optics. If you can, compare then at a dealer alongside the Nikon, Swarov. or any comparable model, but beware, you will buy these. Like all Leica products, this will be the last pair you will ever need to buy.

                      I use this pair of bin's for birding and wildlife photography. Can't say enough about them, light, bright, great clarity without breaking the neck OR the bank.

                      Don't waste your money on bigger binoc's. These maybe small but they are perfect for my needs.

                          Use: Avid birder

                          These binoculars are very light weight and very sharp. Because of their small object lens (25 mm) it does take a little getting use to training them onto your object of interest. Saying that, the size allows me to take them with me where ever I go. No more I wish I had my binos. These are like the best camera, which is the one you have with you. These binoculars go beyond just having a set to have with you but are spectacularly crisp and clear. Worth the premium price.

                            Comments about Leica 10x25 Ultravid Binocular (Black Rubber):

                            I use compact binoculars mostly for travel because of their small size. I debated whether to "up grade" to the Ultravid 10X25 binoculars because I already own the Trinovid 10X25 binoculars which are excellent. The casual observer will find it difficult to compare the two binoculars but the Ultravid binoculars are brighter. The image of both binoculars is excellent. The slightly higher "eye point" of the Ultravid binoculars is an advantage if you use eyeglasses. The improved waterproofing of the Ultravid is good for inclement weather.
                            The construction and cosmetics of the Ultravid binoculars are first rate.
                            They are expensive but worth it to the critical observer.
