This beautiful and refined limited Safari Edition of Leica's8x42 Ultravid Binocular is individually numbered and stands out in any crowd. Identical in specification to their Silverline, this version is limited to a production run of just 100 units and is defined by its green rubberized armoring with matching leather grips on the optical tubes. Complementing the green is a light brown leather neck strap, and a canvas case with leather details - all made by the French artisan firm of Aneas.
Beyond the aesthetics, Leica maintained the performance discerning user demands. The Ultravid delivers enhanced contrast and true color fidelity, with virtually zero distortion, even in low-light conditions by employing phase-correcting coatings onto the prisms and fully multi-coating the optics. Setting the magnification at a comfortable 8x and with an apparent viewing angle that approaches wide-angle creates an immersive observational experience.
Designed for durability, these Ultravids are uncompromising with their construction details. To reduce user fatigue during long glassing sessions, the chassis is made of a lightweight yet durable magnesium alloy, with a titanium center hinge axle. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled for fogproof performance and sealed to make the binocular submersible to 16.5 feet. Ergonomic thumb indents on the bottom of the binocular coupled with the leather details provide a comfortable slip-resistant grip. A lubrication-free focus system provides fast and precise focusing, and twist-up click-stop eyecups allow comfortable use with or without eyewear.
