Description

Brighter and more rugged than previous Leica offerings, the Leica Ultravid 10x25 Compact Binoculars represent a new era in high-performance compact binoculars.

 

The 100% aircraft-grade aluminum housing keeps weight to a minimum while adding considerable ruggedness. The use of ashperical lens technology in the Leica Ultravid Compacts allows for full-size binocular performance in a compact, lightweight body.

 

It features the new High-Lux System, which is a 42-layer prism coating that produces nearly 100% light transmission per glass-to-air surface, thus giving the user the absolute finest image contrast and most natural color rendition across the entire spectrum. Each eyecup slides up to give most any user a comfortable eye relief.

 

The Ultravid Compact Binoculars also feature Leica’s industry-leading waterproof submersion rating of 16.5ft and offer Leica’s Passport Protection Plan. The Passport Protection Plan is the only written-out, unlimited lifetime warranty in the high-performance segment of the optics industry.

            These binoculars are light, compact and offer clarity and waterproof construction; all hallmarks of great optics. I also own Leupold, Nikon, and Cabelas binoculars but these are in a totally different class. I have bought my last pair of binoculars!

                Comments about Leica Ultravid 10x25mm Compact Binoculars:

                I've used binoculars only a few times in the past decade and they always made my eyes hurt and/or gave me a headache. I decided to try these high end binoculars. I find that I can spend as much time as I want looking through them and they do not fatigue my eyes. This is probably due to superior alignment of the right and left lines of sight? I'm also very happy with the clear image, but I can't say if is hugely superior to other models due to my limited binocular experience. I'm happy with my purchase. I probably could have gotten by with a cheaper pair, but the lack of eye strain using this model makes it worth it to me.

                  • All but with monotripod

                  Comments about Leica Ultravid 10x25mm Compact Binoculars:

                  I intended to use the product for portable viewing of everything from looking at Jupiter, Venus, and the stars to scanning for whales during whale watching trips to looking at exotic birds at the zoo. The bino strap doesn't go in the leather case too well. The close focus needs to be closer. The colors are amazing like with their camera lenses and the image is sharp and clear. But under certain day conditions, there is noticable chromatic aberration. The bino. is very light so is very shaky. It needs tripod support. It's not the 10x magnification as I also use Nikon 10x70s which is very balanced in the hand despite it's weight. Good stray light correction (like observing next to a street light at night).

                    Customer Q & A

                    Q1: What exactly does the "10x25" mean?

                    A: On a pair of 10x25 binoculars the 10 represents the magnification power and the 25 represent the size in millimeters of the lens. So 10x25 binocular is 10x what your eyes can see and it is bringing in 25mm of light in each optical tube.
