One word. Awesome
Deer Huntr, B&H Photo
17 December 2012
Excerpt: I bought these for deer hunting. I've been thinking about it for the last couple years but didn't want to spend the money. Boy am I glad I did. I usually hunt pretty thick woods in Alabama where I live. But as I write this review I'm sitting in a shooting house in the Mississippi delta and they are as great here as they have been back at home. Besides being VERY clear, compact and light weight they are awesome in low light.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof
Excerpt: I replaced my swaro 7.5x42WB(previous model) to 8x42 HD. I compared them side-by-side. When I saw a carrion crow in the white snow, surprisingly Leica has almost no color fringe at the center of image.At corner, it is little better than swaro. Less color fringe and less distorted image. But, objective lens caps are tight. Neck strap is too long to me. Also swaro design has advantage by handling. Acrylic indicator cover of diopter adjustment looks cheep.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: i have compared this 8x42 HD side by side with Zeiss FL 8x42 and nikon edg 8x42; believe in Leica, this is really worth them money. all three are excellent binoculars but Leica is surely the top in terms of crisp clear image, image of details!
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
