Leica knows that serious outdoorsmen demand more from their optics. When you’re out in the bush, miles from the nearest road, the ounces in your pack add up fast. Things happen quickly. The game you have been pursuing over the last three ridgelines isn’t going to sit still for long, and you don’t have time to switch between your binoculars and your rangefinder. You have one chance at the trophy you have worked so hard for.
Built to last with an aluminum chassis and rugged rubber armoring, the Geovid R series combines two very useful tools in one: a binocular and a rangefinder. Simply push a button on the side of the full-function binoculars, and you will get the exact distance to your target, taking the guesswork out of a stressful situation. A built-in inclinometer and on-board computer adjust the displayed range for more precise shot placement when shooting uphill or downhill. An in-view, 4-character LED display gives you distance in yards or meters, depending on the model, and allows you to view the range without having to take your eyes off of your subject. Spot and scan modes let you take a single measurement or continuous measurements on moving or multiple targets.
Of course, all of the bells and whistles that you have come to expect from Leica are in place here. The Geovid series sports oversized objective lenses and Leica's proprietary anti-reflection lens coatings to boost light transmission, improving color and contrast even at long distances. Its expansive exit pupil and excellent low-light performance during pre-dawn and post-dusk hours extend its usability, helping you better see during the crepuscular periods when animals are most active. All the creature comforts you enjoy in a binocular are here, including two-position, twist-up, click-stop rubber eyecups for use with or without eyewear and a large knurled center focus wheel for fast adjustments. Nitrogen-filled for fogproof and waterproof performance in extreme conditions, they can even survive dunks to a depth of 16.5 feet.
