Great Monocular

Jca345, B&H Photo
25 September 2014
  • Excerpt: A+ to Leica for this optical marvel. Super sharp, bright, contrasty images. Weatherproof, ergonomic, and just plain cool-looking. I also really find that the classy fitted leather case and macro lens complete the package. Simply put, great quality is always worth it. Also, B&H really took great care of me here. To date, they have been professional, efficient, and very fair with their pricing and policies.

Nice Compact Optic

GeorgioS, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I ordered this monocular while on a five month motorcycle trip, having forgotten to take my small Leica binoculars. This unit is in keeping with the optical quality of my other Leica sport optics. The Monovid is very compact and rugged. It will easily fit in a shirt pocket. Additionally, its waterproofness and hydroscopic lens coating mean it will make an excellent mobile hunter's tool, and I will likely use it as such in lieu of my green 7x42 Ultravid binoculars.

Lens cap?

18 April 2014
  • Excerpt: There's only one thing that's keeping me from giving this 5 stars and it would cost Leica about 5 cents. I wish it had a lens cap for the front element. I don't always want the bulk of the leather carrying case and I don't want to carry it with a lens that's not protected. Anyone know where I could get a cap that would fit?

Perfect for hunting

Sonny, B&H Photo
19 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I have owned and used several pair of binoculars for hunting. They performed well, but were heavy and big - even the little Nikon 10x25. Just too much bulk and weight under a hunting coat or in a side pocket. I bought the Leica 8x20 monocular as an experiment, to see if I could use it some of the time. It has performed so well that I now carry only it into the woods. In any legal hunting light, I am able to clearly see my quarry and make quick, informed decisions.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Quality Lenses, Secure Focus Ring, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive

It's a true Leitz instrument

Allen G., Eagle Optics
30 April 2013
  • Summary: It's the real thing. I think it's overpriced; But if you want a superb sharp image. It's the best monocular money can buy. Compared to the Zeiss instrument (8x20) I just lost: It's a slightly better image and easier to adjust, but a bit tight in the action. Maybe it will losen up in a year or two. It's better than the Nikon 8x25 that I used for a couple of decades.

Gorgeous

Ozmo, B&H Photo
5 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a gorgeous piece of equipment, with wonderful optics and small enough to take everywhere: concerts, birding, galleries, whatever. And the leather case is very classy. The included close-up lens has very limited range, but just right for magnifying flowers or engravings. The only thing missing is a decent neck strap.

Very Pleased with Puchase

in the outdoors, B&H Photo
18 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Walking my dogs in a wooded area every morning and most evenings, I often hear owls or herons and wished I could get a good look at them. I had a pair of decent-quality binoculars, but this Leica Monocular is worlds better. It is compact, very high quality, and I now carry it with me each time I go. I love it, and wished I had bought one years ago. Took it to the symphony yesterday and, again, so glad I purchased this take-along!
