The Leica 8x56 Geovid HD-R 2700 Rangefinder Binocular combines superior optical performance with a powerful 2700-yard laser rangefinder and ballistic computer into a highly portable and easy-to-use optic.

Optically, the Geovid utilizes Leica's Perger-Porro prism optical design that yields the compact form factor of a roof prism with the rich depth of field and interference-free light path of a traditional Porro prism. To further improve image quality, is an internal baffle system to suppress stray light and the HDC fully multi-coated optical system that maximizes light transmission, while improving color fidelity and contrast. These optical features, combined with a moderate magnification and large objectives, produce an optic with an exceptionally-wide exit pupil and long eye relief that is comfortable and easy to use.

The range finding system integrates an inclinometer and ballistics computer with the powerful IR laser to improve first-shot accuracy. Its inclinometer measures the relative angle from the user to the target, then combines that with the linear range, to provide an adjusted distance to enable them to better judge the hold-over/-under. The addition of Leica's Advanced Ballistic Compensation system utilizes one of 12 pre-programmed ballistic curves based on common ammunition loads, combined with the adjusted range and environmental conditions, to further improve hold-over/-under accuracy. Hold-over/-under values can be displayed as the adjusted range, the relative angle, or in MOA/Mils to enable fast click adjustments to riflescope turrets.

Leica employs an open-bridge/dual-hinge design that makes the Geovid lighter and easier to handle without sacrificing strength or stability. Protecting the optics and electronics is a magnesium alloy chassis that is lightweight and durable. The body is wrapped in a protective rubber armor that provides a slip-resistant grip. To withstand the rigors of the trail, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible, and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperatures and environmental conditions.

Optical Performance

  • Moderate 8x power magnifies without sacrificing field of view and exit pupil for easier viewing, especially in low-light conditions
  • Large 56mm objective lenses draw in large amounts of light required for low-light use such as during the pre-dawn and dusk hours, or when peering into dense brush
  • Perger-Porro prism optical design combines the rich depth of field of a Porro prism light path while maintaining the more compact straight-line optical tube of a roof prism, without the phase interference, to minimize light loss and internal diffraction
  • HDC fully multi-coated system has abrasion-resistant and anti-reflection properties to protect exterior lens surfaces, and maximize light transmission with a natural neutral color fidelity and improved contrast
  • Internal baffle system suppresses stray light for improved contrast
  • Hydrophobic AquaDura coating on external optical surfaces allows dirt, dust, and fingerprints to be removed easily without leaving residue on the lens surfaces
  • 354' field of view at 1000 yd

Laser Rangefinder

  • Class 1 eye-safe infrared laser
  • Displays distance in yards or meters
  • Range: 10 to 2700 yd
  • Accuracy: 10 to 550 yd
  • Accuracy: 550 to 1100 yd
  • Accuracy: 1100 yd
  • Spot mode for range to single subject; Scan mode for continuous measurement to multiple or moving targets
  • Metering time averages 0.5 seconds
  • Integrated inclinometer measures the angle relative to the target
  • Equivalent Horizontal Range (EHR) mode uses angle and range to calculate an adjusted horizontal distance to target for improved accuracy from 10 to 1200 yd
  • Four-digit LED overlay with auto-brightness adjustment
  • Simple and intuitive two-button right-handed user interface
  • Runs on one included CR2 battery

ABC (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) System

  • Combines data from rangefinder, inclinometer, temperature, and atmospheric pressure with installed ballistic curves to provide hold-over/-under compensation values
  • Compensation values displayed as hold-over, adjusted distance to target (EHR), or MOA/mils for the number of clicks required on the riflescope turrets
  • 12 pre-installed fixed ballistic curves based on the most popular round loads allows for easy ballistic drop compensation (BDC)

Use and Handling

  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration reduces weight while providing a solid platform for the internal focusing system and rangefinder
  • Slip-resistant center focus wheel is easy to use with high precision, even when wearing gloves
  • ±4 dioptric correction enables user to compensate for optical prescriptions for sharper views
  • Twist-up 4-position click-stop rubber eyecups for use with or without eyewear
  • Long 18mm eye relief makes long-duration viewing easier and more comfortable
  • Expansive 7mm exit pupil ensures complete coverage as pupils open and fully dilate in low light to keep the entire scene in the view with vignetting

Construction Details

  • Bridge design provides increased strength and more gripping surface area
  • Lightweight and durable magnesium alloy housing
  • Slip-resistant and protective rubber armoring
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to 16.5', and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions
  • Weight: 42.5 ounces, with battery
