About the Leica 12x50 Roof Prism

Since 1907 Leica has defined the art and science of High Performance binocular design and manufacturing. In this, Leica's Centennial Year of binocular production, Leica is proud to introduce their latest Benchmark achievement.. the LEICA ULTRAVID HD Binocular Line!

Greater sight in low light! The Ultravid 50 series are ideal for viewing right into the depths of dusk due to optimized image per formance, thanks to new high-definition lenses and Leica AquaDura coating for greater visibility in poor weather conditions.

LEICA ULTRAVID 12 x 50 HD. The 12 x magnification allows for great detail recognition over long distances. The new FL lenses increase the color fidelity and reduce color fringing on high-contrast transitions in images. Moreover, these high-performance binoculars offer an impressive close focus distance of 3.2 meters. All 50 mm models are available in black rubber armoring.

Even extreme cold cannot keep the robust Ultravids from delivering the ultimate viewing experience: the new focusing mechanism on the Leica Ultravid HD models works with high-performance Teflon disks and almost no lubrication. This ensures constant smooth focusing - even at temperatures as low as -25°, where other binoculars would surely fail.

Packed with over 200 innovative changes, the NEW LEICA ULTRAVID HD Binoculars extend the highly acclaimed market leading performance of LEICA Binoculars. The NEW LEICA ULTRAVID HD Binoculars are truly "H"ighly "D"esirable!
Highly Defined Performance:
• Fluorite-Ion Lenses for High Definition Images by further reducing chromatic aberrations and improving color rendition.
• New Highly Developed lens and prism coatings provide increased light transmission (+3%) for brighter images in any light.
• Higher Demands in stray light reduction increases overall contrast and provides greater image detail resulting from utilization of new computer aided design capabilities.
• Highly Designed focusing mechanism incorporates a virtually lubricant free system with PETP-Discs which provides for a smooth and positive movement throughout the operating temperature range.
• High Durability is insured through the use of a proven magnesium body with the industries highest shock and waterproof ratings.
• Leica's newly developed AquaDura hydrophobic lens coating meets the High Demands of "go anywhere at anytime" use rolling rain off of external lens surfaces and also facilitating easier lens cleaning.

New ergonomics for relaxed handling:
• The formed thumb supports on the rear of the 50 mm and 42 mm HD models ensure that the binoculars fit in your hands without slipping. The large central focusing device enables relaxed, natural handling.



Leica 12x50 Roof Prism Features

  • LEICA ULTRAVID 12 x 50 HD
  • The 12 x magnification allows for great detail recognition over long distances.
  • The new FL lenses increase the color fidelity and reduce color fringing on high-contrast transitions in images.
  • LEICA ULTRAVID 12 x 50 HD High-performance binocular with 50 mm objective lens diameter, 12 x magnification and a field of view of 300 ft,
  • The Ultravid 50 series are ideal for viewing right into the depths of dusk due to optimized image per formance, thanks to new high-definition lenses and Leica AquaDuraTM coating for greater visibility in poor weather conditions.
  • Leica engineers have once again succeeded in setting new standards.
  • The use of new, fluoride lenses (FL) further optimizes the color fidelity of the images.
  • It has been possible to further increase the level of image brightness without compromising color fidelity and contrast which are often necessary.
  • In terms of stray light reduction too, the refined HD models achieve new top-of-the-range performance, and thus once again underline the pioneering role played by Leica.
  • As a further benefit, the Ultravid HD range has Leica AquaDura, a new kind of coating for exterior glass surfaces which improves viewing comfort.
  • Fingerprints and dirt can be removed more easily than ever. Moisture simply rolls off the surface and visibility remains unimpaired.
  • However, Leica AquaDura does not have any negative influence on the transmission performance of the optical system, and also provides better protection against scratching.
  • It was also possible to further optimize the focusing mechanism. So the functioning properties remain smooth whatever the surrounding temperature.
  • The end result makes the latest Ultravid HD generation the first choice for all nature observers who do not want to accept compromises in their binoculars, and who expect the highest level of performance.
  • So experiencing nature is even more fascinating.
