Leupold 172698 overview

  • 1Description

The Leupold 12x50 BX-2 Tioga HD Binocular, in gray, features multiple technologies that work seamlessly to boost performance — especially in low-light conditions. The most notable is their proprietary Xtended Twilight Lens System, which employs index-matched lens coatings that were specifically engineered for the calcium-fluoride lens glass to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum — with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low-light, such as at dawn and dusk and under heavily-canopied forests. Complementing the Xtended Twilight Lens System are phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms and over-sized 50mm objectives, which translate to high-contrast views that are bright and crisp even in low-light. The powerful 12x magnification, wide-angle field of view, long eye relief, and wide exit pupil produce a panoramic and immersive visual experience with the ability to resolve details of distant targets that lower-power optics are unable to achieve. For some users, the high magnification and large front objectives may cause fatigue while holding the binocular steady for long periods. For this reason, it is recommended that a support system like a mono or tripod be employed for extended viewing session using an optional 1/4"-20 adapter, available separately.

  • Xtended Twilight Lens System employs index-matched multi-coatings that complement the optical glass to ensure maximum light transmission across the entire visual spectrum — especially the upper blue/violet range to enhance low-light vision

    Leupold 172698 reviews

    12x50 BX-2 Tioga HD Binocular (Shadow Gray) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best warranty best product I just received these as a warranty upgrade for my old Yosemite's. My first use was in fog and rain and as always Leupold optics wow me. I own many of their products and they are all amazing you will never be disappointed. These are large but they are 12X50 meant for spotting from large distances. The part that really impressed me was the clips for the neck harness broke on my 7 year old Yosemite's broke. I mailed them in and they gave me full retail replacement or new Yosemite's no questions asked. They aren't exaggerating when they say the best warranty.
