Leica Geovid 8x56 BRF

  • Conclusion: Let’s deal with the parameters first. What’s the difference between the new Leica and its most serious rivals: a Swarovski SLC New 8x56 and a Zeiss Victory 8x56 T* FL? Just one glance at this chart with an appropriate comparison can reveal several substantial differences. One of the more important parameters of a set of binoculars is its field of view. Most of 8x56 class binoculars are characterized by a field of view level of 6.0-6.5 degrees.
  • Pros: solid but, at the same time, small and compact housing for such an equipment class,, negligible astigmatism,, slight coma,, chromatic aberration corrected very well,, slight brightness loss at the edge of the field,, sharp image almost to the same edge of the field,, low internal flares,, slight distortion,, a range-finder useful even at night.
  • Cons: too small prisms and truncated, darkened pupils as a result,, low transmission in the red spectrum,, objective lenses are closer to 55 mm than to 56,, electronic elements of the range-finder aren’t darkened so they are visible in the inner tube,, very high price.
