Leica Ultravid 8x32 HD-Plus Details

  • Because of their compact size and low mass, these binoculars are incredibly universal and are a great companion for activities such as birdwatching, hiking, traveling, camping, safari, and daytime 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.


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 (8x32 HD-Plus)

The 8x32 and the 10x32 are the most compact models in the Ultravid HD-plus series. Because of its size, the 8x32 is a great companion for hiking, sports, traveling, camping and alike. It can also be used for daytime hunting – when it gets dusky, its performance will deteriorate because of the small exit pupil and the small objective lens. It boasts a big field of view due to its small lens (135 m on 1000 m). The 8x magnification binoculars are not as susceptible to hand shaking as the 10x magnification binoculars, resulting in a more comfortable use – it is easier to achieve a steady image which is why mounting them on a tripod or leaning them against something fixed is not as necessary as with the 10x magnification models. However, these will not provide an image as full of details as their 10x magnification counterpart.
