  • Description

    The Leica 10x42 Noctivid Binoculars have endured more than a century of expertise in optical design and construction.  These high-end binoculars represent a revolution in the field of viewing optics and offer discerning bird-watchers and wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts previously unimagined quality.  The Leica NOCTIVID glasses are compact in size, stylish, and elegant, but nevertheless unbelievably robust and resilient. Ideal for every walk of life, the new Leica NOCTIVID binoculars set standards alone with their design. The optical and mechanical systems of the new Leica NOCTIVID family of binoculars unite the best of the latest and most innovative technologies to create a new pinnacle of excellence.

    A Century Of Knowledge Has Come To Life

    The optical engineers at Leica have integrated no less than 12 glass lens elements in the new Leica NOCTIVID models to achieve viewing excellence that fulfills even the most stringent demands. SCHOTT HT™ (High Transmission) glasses ensure amazingly natural color rendition. The Leica NOCTIVID binoculars take advantage of a new high-temperature plasma deposition process for highest-quality lens coatings that guarantee perfectly balanced transmission characteristics throughout the entire wavelength range of visible light, which results in a breathtakingly bright and color-neutral viewing image.

    High Contrast, Brilliant and Pin-Sharp

    In the Noctivid binoculars, the excellent optical performance that Leica HD-Plus binoculars are known for, has been improved even more. The brilliant image is even sharper and richer in contrast. In addition to the Schott HT™ glass for the prisms, the anti-reflective coatings have been optimised. These coatings are applied on all lenses and prisms in the new high-temperature plasma process. Thanks to all these improvements, the whole visible spectrum of light is transmitted through the binoculars almost without loss. 

    Sophisticated Combination

    The latest optical calculations in sophisticated combination with state-of-the-art baffles and premium glass materials ensure image plasticity almost like in 3-D. Thanks to superior contrasts and uncompromisingly large depth of field, fast focussing, wide eye relief and generous eyepieces, you will experience a new way of viewing.
