Leica 8x42 Trinovid Water Proof Roof Prism Binocular with 7.2 Degree Angle of View.


About Leica 8x42 Roof Prism

The Leica 8x42 Trinovid Binocular is not only robust, but also ideal for use in conditions of low visibility and poor light, thanks to their exceptional image brightness. The compact housing contains remarkably precise technology and the large focus wheel is fantastically practical and easy to use. It is ergonomically designed to sit comfortably in your hand so you can set the focus quickly and accurately in every situation. The short focusing range which can be achieved with just over one rotation of the focus wheel means that the Silverline binoculars can be precisely focused in seconds.

Leica 8x42 Roof Prism Reviews

Good, but not the best


from Southern California  -  Avid Adventurer

Side by side I compared these Leicas to the Zeiss Victory HT 8x42, and the Swarovski 8.5x42 EL Swarovisions. Let's just say it took me NO time to pick the Swaros. Zeiss was the brightest by a small margin, but the sharpness fell off near the edges, and chromatic aberration was also noticeable at the edges. They also had the worst ergonomics of the 3. The Swaros were astonishingly scalpel-sharp to the edge and I saw no chromatic aberration even at the edges when looking at a thin dark tree branch in front of a bright mid day sky. They fit perfectly in my hands and the angle of the eyecups matched the anatomy of my eye sockets so they just melted into my body and disappeared. The view is absolutely 3D with wonderful depth of field. The only thing I preferred about the Leicas was their smaller size. There's nothing 'wrong' with them ... till you look through the Swarovski. The Leica's edge sharpness and chromatic aberration was inferior to the Swaros. I also read a pro review you can google up, in which two Leicas failed the water proof test. Sorry, I realize this review sounds like a Swaro ad, but my personal experience quickly told me there really is no reason to buy the Leicas, except for the lower price and they are shorter.
