Summary: these are worth every penny i can now hunt early morning & late evening the glare that my nikons gave me was sad but now no glare just clear views i ranged 1086 yds once now these binos are the best my friends ziess are not better than these
Summary: I purchased three sets if Geovids for a long term bird research project. Estimating distance is the foundation of most songbird monitoring projects as it allows biologists to calculate accurate density estimates for various bird species encountered on surveys. Having binoculars, rangefinders, thermometers, clipboards and whatever else is simply too much for an observer to handle and still have there head up enough to make good, accurate observations.
Summary: Durability, looks and how it functions is awesome, no guessing when i bow hunt or rifle hunt on distances.if you know your arrow or bullet at any range what it does you will be a successful hunter.optics are crystal clear,as good as you will need in the field. I've had my Leicas for 5 years now and its 2 tools in 1.
Summary: Before purchasing the 10X42 HD, had a Leica 8X42 which I bought 5 years ago, and love. Also bought a Swarovski EL several years later on reputation, but was disappointed and thought that the Leica had a much sharper image. After the HD came out, upgraded to a Leica 10X42 and sold my Swarovski's on E-bay. While I don't see dramatic improvement in the image quality between my older 8X42's and the newer HD, the HD certainly is an improvement over the Swarovski EL's.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: Very well made. Rubberized coating provides weather/shock resistance, and flouride lenses show true colors, and binos are very compact for this class. From birding to hiking, these binos will provide a lifetime of pristine images.
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: I use this binox four days a week and it is a great companion in all my field trips. The optics is clear, even on a cloudy evening to spot warblers and brown flycatchers. This piece is so light that I carried it in my last field trip in the Eastern Himalaya for 10 hours continuously and didn't feel the weight. The rubber armour seemed to gather dust. The space between the eye-cup and eye-piece is gathering dust too which is hard to clean.
Pros: Compact, Light-weight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
