Leica 10x42 Ultravid HD Binoculars
4 April 2014
Excerpt: Anyone who regularly peruses these pages will know that this review is way overdue as Leica Ultravid binoculars have been out for quite a while now. Just when we were about to review the original Ultravids, Leica announced that they were coming out with a new HD version that would be a big advance over the previous version, so we thought we’d wait for the new ones rather than put effort into analyzing something that was destined to be obsolete soon.
Conclusion: Pros: Wady: Leica binoculars are, by and large, in a class of their own. It would be foolish to expect a weak test result here. In the case of the Ultravid 10x42 model there were no serious slip-ups so a very high score, reaching over 143 points, is nothing strange. What’s interesting, though, even if you spend 2000 USD on the equipment of such a reputable producer as Leica you still don’t have any guarantee that your set of binoculars will be the best in its class.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a top of the range binocular, perhaps the ultimate binocular that is ideal for wildlife, a great higher powered birding binocular and therefore makes a perfect binocular for taking on safari or other nature adventures, then these will not disappoint. Are they worth the hefty price tag, well that's a tough one to answer.
