Leica 40385 overview

  • 1Description

Leica's black 10x42 Noctivid Binocular represents the perfect combination of form and function in a single optic. It is designed with an array of complementary technologies to produce bright and clear color-neutral images, while fitting comfortably in the hand for long, fatigue-free glassing sessions.

The Noctivid's performance starts with the use of SCHOTT High Transmission glass with a 12-element lens configuration and their HighLux-System anti-reflection multi-coatings, followed by phase-corrected compact roof prisms. These features produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire visible spectrum. Internal baffles limit scattered light in the optical tubes, which can affect clarity and contrast, while an innovative lens design and internal field flatteners ensure edge-to-edge clarity across the entire wide-angle field of view. The wide viewing angle and relatively high 10x magnification allow you to take in sweeping views while also giving you the ability to make detailed observations of distant objects. The wide viewing angle also helps to mitigate the common occurrence of disorientation that often accompanies high magnifications when using the optic on rolling seas or airborne platforms.

The Noctivid is 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 binocular 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.

Optical Performance
  • High 10x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects
  • 42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability for enhanced low-light performance such as at dawn and dusk or when peering into dense brush
  • Compact roof prism optical path helps to maintain a compact form factor for easier handling
  • SCHOTT HT (High Transmission) glass and 12 lens elements ensure accurate color rendition with limited distortion
  • Multi-layer high-temperature plasma anti-reflection lens coating deposition process ensures balanced light transmission across the entire visible spectrum
  • P40 phase-correcting prism coatings increase light transmission while improving contrast and clarity
  • HighLux-System (HLS) maximizes light throughput to improve color rendition and contrast
  • Internal baffle system reduces scattered light, which can interfere with contrast, color, and clarity
  • Hydrophobic AquaDura coatings on external optical surfaces allow dirt, dust, and fingerprints to be removed easily
  • Lens design and integrated field flatteners reduce spherical aberration and distortion across the entire field of view for edge-to-edge sharpness
  • Wide 64° apparent angle of view minimizes the appearance of the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics, while presenting a spacious and immersive observational experience
  • 337' field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Open-bridge/Dual-hinge configuration provides additional gripping surface area for better handling
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • 56-74mm adjustable interpupillary distance allows easy use for a wide variety of people
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction range enables users to compensate for individual optical prescriptions for tack-sharp images
  • Twist-out 4-position click-stop eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Long 19mm eye relief ensures comfortable use with reduced eye strain, especially during long glassing sessions
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils when they open and dilate in low-light to ensure the entire scene stays in view without vignetting
Construction Details
  • Bridge design helps to reduce overall weight without sacrificing strength of stability
  • Lightweight and durable magnesium alloy chassis
  • Protective black rubberized armoring provides a slip-resistant grip in all weather conditions
  • Nitrogen filled for fogproof performance, especially when moving through extreme temperature changes and environmental conditions
  • O-ring sealed to be submersible to 16.5' (5m)
  • Proprietary varnish coating protects metal surfaces from corrosion and wear

    10x42 Noctivid Binocular (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearest View I use the binoculars for birding. �My previous binoculars have been Leica Trinovid and Ultravid, Swarovrski El, and Vortex. �With premium binoculars, one expects quality build, edge to edge sharpness, minimum chromatic aberration, correct color rendition. �The Noctivids passes those tests in spades. �What separates these binoculars from anything that I have used is that I feel that I am not looking through binoculars but rather that I am looking through an open window. �It is the most natural view I have ever experienced. �Unfortunately, that is the best way I can describe them. �To anyone looking to purchase better binoculars, these deserve a look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a fan but Leica hit a homerun with these binoculars!! I've been a Leica fan for years, right after I tested just about every rangefinder on the market and Leica was the only one that would pass all the tests I put them through. Shortly thereafter, I bought a pair of Geovids and got years of great use out of them. I then moved to the newer style Geovids with the open bridge which I like very much. I decided to try these new Noctovids, and I must say, they are incredible. I was considering Swarovski's, Zeiss, Bausch and Lomb, and Leica Ultravids when I saw there was a new model coming out from Leica. I'm pleased I waited as these are some of the best binoculars I've ever looked through. Color phase is spot on, no fuzziness around the edges for a clear sight picture, ergonomically correct, and well-built. Light transmission is superb. It is easy to see much earlier and later than most any other glass I've used. I like the diopter setting as once you get it set, you won't have to worry about it trying to move on you. The weight is perfect; not too heavy and is easy on your shoulders and back for a day of glassing in the field. If you are looking for top shelf glass, you have arrived. Buy them, you will not be disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way Top notch construction, feels good in the hands, the clarity is unbelievable and focus is quick. I can take them to the Yankees stadium, sit on the 4th level, focus on the batters box and see individual pieces gravel beneath the player. I also use them as a telephoto for my phone. Here's a shot I took of Aaron Judge with my Noctivid's and iPhone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Edge-to-edge sharpness and incredible clarity indeed offer 3-D immersive experience. Close focus amazing; target acquisition easy with new ergo design; tough but beautiful finish. I'm seeing details on birds I've missed for years. Worth ever penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning quality! We have several good binoculars but even the best doesn't come close to the sharpness and bright image that these binoculars produce. In addition to the high image quality they are lite and the strap is good enough not to replace. Very expensive but worth it.
