Description

The Leica Duovid is the ultimate in performance and versatility. The only high performance dual power binocular on earth, the Duovid allows the user to switch magnifications with just a simple rotation of the eyepiece rings.

 

  • The Automatic Diopter Compensation (ADC™) maintains the user’s diopter setting and focus when switching between magnifications, allowing for a hassle-free viewing experience at either magnification.
  • High-Durable Coatings (HDC™) on external lenses improve image quality and protect the lenses from scratches and harmful environmental effects.
  • The High Lux System (HLS™) on the Duovid is a 42-layer prism coating that increases usable light transmission and brings optical performance to never-before-seen levels.
  • An aircraft-grade aluminum housing and solid stainless steel center axis pin provide maximum durability and superior balance of the two optical tubes.
  • The Duovid is fully fogproof and also boasts Leica’s industry-leading waterproof submersion rating of 16.5ft, assuring the user that their binocular will remain waterproof in any weather condition and at any conceivable elevation.
  • The 10+15x50 Duovid includes Leica’s handy binocular tripod adapter inside the box, allowing the user to mount the Duovid to a tripod for a more stable view at 15x magnification.
  • The Duovid offers Leica’s 3-year Passport Protection Plan + Lifetime Limited Warranty, which is the strongest warranty in the high-performance segment of the optics industry.
  • Twistable eyecups offer three different settings for different eye reliefs and may be easily removed for cleaning.

    Comments about Leica 8+12x42mm Duovid Black Binoculars:

    I use my 8X12 Leica duovids almost every day for nature/birdwatching. Since I purchased these wonderfull bino's I hardly use my other Leica bino's The 8X12 power feature makes these bino's good for warbler watching in the bush at 8X or looking at ocean birds at 12X with just a simple adjustment. They still have the Leica crystal clear image at the 12 power magnification.

      The best binos I have ever had. I love the dual magnification feature. Nice clear images in the lens. Just a joy to use. My 4th pair of Leica Binos. The 8X12 duavids are erganomically superior to any of my other Leicas.

        Comments about Leica 8+12x42mm Duovid Black Binoculars:

        I'm a true believer in "You get what you pay for" and this is an excellent example of that. Now I really really had to do a lot of thinking before I paid [$]for a pair of Binocs and I actually sold two other pairs (Swarovski ELs and Leica Compact 8x20s) to get these. And it was worth it! Where ever I go I absolutely must be able to see as far away as I can and view as much detail as I can. Its just the way I am, and I have had all of the top names in Binocs but these are the best I have owned. Set the Binocs on 8X and quickly scan an area then for greater detail zoom in with the 12X. I have read reviews that say changing from one power to the other is difficult but it is smooth as silk, you just have to change both sides separately but who cares it probably makes them less complicated and there for lighter and more reliable. They are very well built and the optics are beyond compare.

        Sensational viewing!

        By James Powers

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Leica 8+12x42mm Duovid Black Binoculars:

        Sensational resolution but on the heavy side. The strap does make it more comfortable but still not for casual birders trekking in the fields. Eye cups are comfortable and the attached eyepice covers are very convenient.
