Leica Ultravid 10x42 HD-Plus Details

  • The combination of 10x magnification and 42mm objective lens makes these an excellent choice for birdwatching and mountain hunting
  • The ergonomic design (great distribution of weight, quality twist-up eyecups) provides for an excellent user experience.
  • Leica used SCHOTT HT™ glass for their Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars. This glass contributes to an outstandingly high light transmission rate.
  • The AquaDura coating will make sure that the external parts of lenses are dust and dew free, contributing to the overall optical experience.

Introduction

The history of Ultravid goes back to 2003 when the Ultravid BR models were launched. In 2007, Leica introduced the HD models. These already had the AquaDura coating applied to the external parts of the lenses. Also, some antireflection coatings were applied onto the surface of the lenses, and the field of view was slightly increased. Ultravid HD-PLUS was launched in 2014 when it replaced the Ultravid HD series. The biggest innovation that these series brought was the inclusion of SCHOTT HT lenses which improved the light transmission rate.

About the Ultravid HD-plus series

Just like all Leica products from the premium class, the Ultravid HD-plus binoculars are coated with AquaDura coating. Developed by Leica, this unique coating, applied to the lenses, will protect the surface from scratches and abrasion. Additionally, water droplets will roll off since the coating is hydrophobic, and dust particles will be simple to wipe away. The prisms used are of the roof type.

These binoculars are designed to withstand rough handling – the housing is made from quality magnesium. The focusing mechanism runs smoothly and the ergonomic construction allows the user to observe the surroundings comfortably. The weight is nicely distributed throughout the binoculars – the center of the mass is in the middle of the user’s palm, which is optimal for observing. Leica is known for using quality eye-cups on their binoculars and Ultravid HD-plus models are no exception.

This series was designed for demanding users. The combination of SCHOTT HT glass and the coatings applied to the lenses provides for a sharp, crisp, bright image. In the series, there are many different models to accommodate various demands: 8x32, 10x32, 7x42, 8x42, 10x42, 8x50, 10x50 and 12x50.

All Ultravid HD-Plus models are made in Germany.

About the model (10x42 HD-Plus)

The 10x42 is one of the available models in the Ultravid HD-Plus series. Compared to the 8x magnification binoculars, the 10x42 provide more detailed images – the combination of the 10x magnification and 42m objective lens makes them great for any situation where an image full of details is important (hunting in the mountains, birdwatching, etc.). Its field of view is narrower than that of its 8x magnification counterpart but decent still (112 m on 1000 m). The 10x magnification binoculars are more susceptible to hand shaking as the 8x magnification binoculars, which is why it is advisable to mount them on a tripod or to lean them against something fixed for a steadier image.

  • Great for observing in situations where details are of high importance (hunting in the mountains, birdwatching, etc.)
  • 10x magnification
  • A field of view of 112 m on 1000 m
  • Features Leica’s AquaDura lens coating
  • SCHOTT-HT glass for an improved light transmission rate
  • Ergonomic design
  • Quality magnesium housing
