Leica 40316 overview

  • 1Description

Striking a sensitive balance between compact and full-sized, the Leica 8x32 Trinovid HD Binocular enjoys the performance of the latter, and the easy portability of the former without sacrifice. Engineered with the technology that users have come to expect from the brand, the Trinovid features P40 phase-corrected prisms treated with their HighLux system to limit internal light diffraction and eliminate interference for improved clarity, sharpness, and contrast. The objective lenses are fully multi-coated with Leica's HDC coatings for maximum light transmission through the optical path to ensure accurate color fidelity and high-contrast views, especially in challenging lighting conditions. These technologies work together and complement each other to produce an immersive observational experience with bright images that are clear and sharp across a field of view that approaches wide angle. To capture extremely close-up views of small birds, bugs, butterflies, and insects, the Trinovid is equipped with an exceptionally short 3.3' minimum focus distance.

Built to withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the chassis is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum-alloy wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armor. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof, and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or conditions. A wide interpupillary adjustment range, generous ±4dioptric correction, long 17mm eye relief, and four-position click-stop eyecups ensures easy and comfortable use by most people. From its exceptional optical performance to the thoughtful construction details, this mid-sized Trinovid delivers performance while being comfortable in the hand during long observation sessions on the trail, at the range, in the stadium, or sightseeing around town.

Leica 40316 reviews

8x32 Trinovid HD Binocular is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eye relief a problem for me, otherwise king of close focus There are four binoculars in this class: Leica Trinovid HD, Zeiss Conquest HD, Meopta Meostar B1, and Kowa Genesis. I have not tried the Meostar because the close focus is out to 5.6ft (1.75m). Here is my take on the other three. Another consideration is the Zeiss Victory Pocket 8x25, which many birders rave about, but I have not tried (it's also half the weight of these x32s). I do not wear glasses, but I have a hard time fitting binoculars to my eyes if I want to rest the eye cup fully around my eye and not tilt or use the "brow" or "hover" techniques. My eye sight is 20/20 left and 20/10 right. I seem to mostly have a problem with the right eye and blackouts. Summary: The Trinovid HD's clearly win for close focus, but their focus speed is about 1/2 that of the Conquest HD. If your main concern is close focus, get the Trinovids and make sure you are ok with the eye relief. If you want a general-use binocular with good close focus and the ability to switch quickly from close to far focus, get the Conquest HDs. If flare/glare control is your main concern, get the Kowa - they are as sharp and clear as the Zeiss and control flare/glare better, and by a lot. I've spent a while looking for an 8x32 with good close focus. I tried a bunch of $400 USD or under and the Meopta Meopro HD 8x32 was the best for me. It has 3.3 ft (1m) close focus, which is fantastic, a pretty quick focus (about on par with Conquest), and really fits my eyes well with minimum blackout issues. The downside is it does not control flare well. The Trinovid has a fantastic 1m close focus, but I found it does not fit my eyes well (no glasses, but hard-to-fit). The negatives I'm listing here are highly subjective to me and my eyes, so for you it may workout great. I have to have the eye cups all the way out in the 4th detent where they can be removed, and sometimes they come out with the rainguard :( I have to work them a bit to fight blackouts and have to keep the lower part of the eyecup off my face. I am also not convinced it is as sharp as the Conquest, but that may be an effect of having to work them to keep my eyes aligned. So despite loving the close focus, I don't think they will work for me. Also, the focus is kind of slow, taking about 7-8 finger motions to go from 5ft to 150 ft. The Conquests really feel good in the hand and have a precision to them. They do focus about 2x as fast as the Trinovids, which I've seen others mention before but did not realize how big a difference that is. It takes about 3-4 finger motions to go from 5ft to 150ft, which can save a second or two in focusing time. They fit my eyes much better than the Trinovids and I can lightly rest the eyecups all the way around my eyes for a nice immersive view. At 4.9 ft (1.5m), it is a good close focus. The Kowa are fantastic at controlling flaring and glare from stray light. I was able to get the edge of the setting sun (behind clouds) in the view without noticing any. During mid-day, I can bring the view practically to the edge of the sun are barely notice any. I would say it is on par with the $2000 Swarovski 8.5x42 Field Pro in that regard. The Kowa do not feel quite as good in hand as the Conquest, but they actually fit my eyes better, about as well as the Meopro. I can fully rest the eyecups around my eyes and I do not feel like I'm squinting through them. It is a very relaxed view. The Conquest have a sleek, precise feel, the Genesis are a bit more cushy soft feeling and the focuser isn't as nice feeling, in my opinion (it's a metal mesh feel as opposed to ridges). I will say that the Genesis grip position is very good: the index finger aligns perfectly with the focuser. Even for my large hands, the closed bridge is not a problem. The Genesis have the same 4.9ft (1.5m) close focus as the Conquest, but the focus speed is more like the Trinivods.
