Leica's Ultravid line are remarkable roof prism binoculars which exceed even the lofty standards of the Trinovid models, while reducing weight and streamlining the chassis.  Ultravids contours feel as immediately comfortable in your hands as does wearing an old pair of jeans, and they couldn't be easier to keep steady on your subject.  They're available with rubber armoring in basic black, an attractive military green and occasionally a purist's delight of black pebbled leather.

This 8x42 model features a whopping 5.3mm exit pupil diameter which allows comfortable viewing in all twilight.  They're a great choice as an all-around model or for serious birding.

Generous 7.4° field of view for an 8x full-sized binocular
Phase-coated roof prisms and Leica's new HighLux System of coatings result in the brightest binoculars to wear the Leica name
Internal focusing allows a constant length
Robust magnesium & titanium housing
Revised eyecups provide superior shielding of stray light
Enormous weight savings & brightness increase from the Trinovid equivalents
±4 Dioptric correction
58-74mm Interpupillary adjustment range

    8x42 Ultravid BL Binocular - Black Leather is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Awesome Binos The fit and finish are elegant and tough. Optical quality is simply stunning. They come up to the eyes perfectly, revealing the entire field with no fidgeting needed to avoid blackouts. Perfect for my eyes with glasses, with ample eye relief. Their weight and balance are perfect for my large hands, and are easy to hold steady. These binoculars have a magic feel unrivaled by other binoculars, including the rubberized Ultravids. They are of heirloom quality, and no doubt with have many more lives past mine. Be a happy customer like me... Just get over the price and buy them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leica 8x42 BL Great product. Typical Leica packaging. Only oversight was no objective covers supplied or for sale by Leica. But secured a pair from Amazon that work fine. Eyepiece covers ARE supplied. The Binos are everything they are reported to be. You’ll be happy with the action and the image. Leather ocular tube covers are perfectly executed. Should last a lifetime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully Satisfied I bought these binoculars to view ocean front landscapes. They work fine with or without my driving glasses. It would be nice if they supplied a scale or some easy way to restore the distance between the eyepieces.
