Available in the most popular 8x42 and 10x42 setups, Leica Noctivid binoculars are made in Germany using the ultimate level of craftsmanship and the finest components and coatings. They are even one level higher than the famous Leica Ultravid HD Plus binoculars. Noctivid binoculars are not only suitable for most outdoor activities, adventures, and sporting events, but will also deliver a performance to match or beat just about any other binocular currently on the market. Perfect for bird watching, wildlife observation, hunting, and general use, they can also be used at sporting events or on a safari. The open bridge design, magnesium chassis, and non-slip rubber armour offer superb ergonomics and a great degree of protection to the high-quality optics contained within. Leica has opted to use the very best SCHOTT HT high transmission glass and their premier level coatings on both the prisms and lenses.
The state of the art magnesium chassis used on the Noctivid is both lightweight and very robust. It is fully sealed and thus not only prevents dust from entering but is also fully waterproof (submersible to a depth of 5 m). The nitrogen filled interior ensures a completely moistureless environment, which in turn prevents internal glass surfaces from misting or fogging-up. This often occurs on unprotected instruments, especially when there are temperature fluctuations. Leica has used twist-up eyecups on these which have 4 click-stop positions, which in combination with the 19 mm of eye-relief ensure a full view, with or without wearing glasses. A diopter ensures they can be calibrated to your specific vision and the centrally positioned focus wheel which is easy to reach and use. The user can adjust the interpupillary distance from 56 mm to 74 mm. These binoculars are perfectly balanced in all aspects – a fatigue-free use is ensured.
Leica Noctivid binoculars use an optical system of the highest order. To begin with, each of the lens elements has been made using a special, very high transmission glass from the world-renowned SCHOTT company. Anti-reflective coatings are applied to all lenses and prisms for a greater amount of light capture and transmission, which directly results in a higher light transmission rate and a better quality view. Phase-correcting coatings are also added to the roof prisms along with their own HighLux-System mirror coatings, which Leica says increases light reflectivity to their highest ever levels across all spectrums. The outer lens surfaces are coated in Leica’s AquaDura coatings that are hydrophobic (they repel water) and make it easier for the user to remove dirt, dust, and fingerprints. The High Durable Coating (HDC® Plus) is also used. Even the close focusing distance of these binoculars is quite amazing – 1.9 m. They produce images with high contrast and full of vivid colours.
Also included with your Noctivid package is a soft carry case, a shaped neck strap with a padded section made from Neoprene for added comfort and grip, protective lens caps, an eye-piece cover and lens cleaning cloth.
A 10-year warranty is included with all Leica Noctivid series binoculars.
