Conclusion: At first sight the Leica Ultravid 8x32 HD draws attention to its compact dimensions. It is a small instrument with a well-put-together casing, padded with uniform black material; it makes an impression of a diminutive device, smaller than it really is. You can notice it in this photo, where the Leica is positioned next its most serious competitors. It is significantly smaller than the Swarovski on the left and a bit smaller than the Zeiss.
Pros: solid, compact and handy casing at the same time,, good transmission,, negligible astigmatism,, well-corrected chromatic aberration,, low coma,, slight brightness loss on the edge of the field of view,, good colour rendition,, perfectly black background around exit pupils,, very good blackening inside the inner tubes,, high quality antireflection coatings,, good prisms made of BaK-4 glass.
Cons: small eye relief,, too high distortion,, slightly egg-shaped pupils.
