Excerpt: Being a Zeiss snob (I own Victory 10x binoculars) I purchased Zeiss Conquest 10x25s for my daugthers, who have a hard time holding the heavier Victory pair, expecting that the lighter Conquests would be good for their hands. However, the Conquests have rigid rubber eyecups, which do not fold back, so clarity is poor. I bought the Leica Trinovid 10x25 as a substitute and my girls, and myself, were amazed how good these binoculars are.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I lost a pair of binoculars I've had for years. Carried them everywhere... trips, shows and plays. When I called B&H I knew the brand, type and size. I gave them a brand and magnification. when I began to describe them the sales person not only understood and listened, but indicated what I was wanting to replace. He was right the first time. I bought the glasses.. and what he suggested was correct. I would go to them again.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Easy to carry and use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I do not make extensive use of binoculars. I want only one that is compact enough to serve as opera glasses and powerful enough to use comfortably from the railing of a ship or in a wild-life preserve. The Ultravid 10x25 fits the bill for me. The 8x25 may work as well for someone with a need for greater compactness (about 1 inch shorter), but I chose to not sacrifice power. Theaters and preserves tend to be bathed in bright light; consequently, I saw no need for an 8x40.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: First impressions are not as reliable as an analysis based on extensive use, but the first impressions on the 10x25 Ultravid are so positive that I'm hopeful they won't be fleeting. These are my first Leica binocs. I've used them on a few hikes and have found them to be sharp as a tack and surprisingly bright. The latter is a real plus when daylight starts fading. The build seems to be of the high quality that the price should command.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I wanted a very high quality, high(er) powered set of binoculars that were portable/"pocketable" yet bright and rugged. Of all the various Leica products I have had over the years, this is another product from them that fits the bill perfectly. It takes a little getting used to holding them steady, but the focus knurl is in the correct place for ease of use, these are very bright and provide an almost 3D effect due to the outstanding optics.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Outstanding brightness, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
