Nikon 10x25 - 10/31/2013

by Scott from L.A.

I don't typically like 10 power binoculars because of the bad eye relief and narrow FOV (my standard pair is a Zeiss 7x42). The stated eye relief here is 15mm but I wear glasses and see a complete view, so they're good there. The 273 foot FOV is not great (the Swarovski 10x25 has 294' FOV and eye relief is 17mm) but the clarity and brightness of the Leica is superb. CA is almost nonexistent and I feel like I get a sharp edge to edge view. I love the focusing dial so much better than the typical embedded dial in most compacts. With these I can get two fingers around the dial if I need to shift focus fast. They look sleek, probably the best looking of any of the premium pocket buys. They handle well and the Leica optics are superb. I've had no issues with moisture or fogging. They hold up very well, are lightweight. Highly recommended.

Replaced Leitz 8 x 32 Trinovid lost in fire - 08/23/2013

by Peter H. from Upstate New York, USA

I loved my Leitz 8 x 32's inherited from my father. They were so easy on the eyes I used to watch entire concerts with them. I had tried other lesser expensive compacts but they were lacking in clarity. These Leicas are smaller and more powerful and, I believe, superior to the Leitz in clarity. I love them.

Tiny, light, backpacking binocular, very nice. It won't be your "primary" pair. It's so light that there is a lot of hand shake that goes away with something heavier.

Very good compact - 11/18/2010

by Roger from GA

I have limited experience on 10x25 binoculars but I will try to be as objective as I can. Please assume you know your intended use for compacts and its limitations. (for me its a support tool for wildlife observing/traveling/photography)

Optical wise (CA, brightness) is much visibly better than any competition below 200$ I tried. Up and above for major brands like Nikon/Zeiss/Leica/swavorski it should be about equal with very minor differences that only the sharpest eye-sight can differentiate.

Construction wise its solid as major competitions. The focusing knob/diopter adjustment seems to be the weakness of this 10x25. As a 2 weeks owner since this review my binocular just had a hard but reasonable bump - the result is no damage externally but the diopter adjustment begin to feel a little weird - sent it back to Leica to have a check.

Ergonomically wise the rear center adjustment knob and two hinge are what separate Leica from some other competition - I cannot comment because this is a personal factor.

Price is 50% more than still-available trinovid. The difference is (1) waterproofing and (2) close focus. Trinovid should be equal optically and slightly more robust with more metal/simpler construction. Zeiss and Nikon can be have for cheaper but please know that any competitions over 300$ you will be paying much more for very very minor improvements/differences - diminishing-return strongly holds here.

Warranty wise its just as good as Zeiss and Swavorski. I would treat the 3-yrs passport (accident) and lifetime warranty combo as marketing than practical purpose because spare parts do run-out. Its a matter of what action they took to fix your problem when you have a problem - in this case there aren't any difference as of year 2010.

Overall its a great compact binocular.

Good but not great... - 11/01/2009

by Doug Jones from Juneau, Alaska

I have owned these binoculars for several years and they have fogged up twice and had to be sent into Leica both times. Repair time is anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks.

They were repaired for free each time.

I know three other people with the same binoculars and two of the three have had to have theirs repaired as well.

Leica Magic - 07/29/2009

by James from Indiana

I had a pair of the older 10x25 Trinovids for years and thought they had superb optics. Now Leica has pushed the clarity and brilliance in the new 10x25 Ultravids to about 99% of what can be engineered and packaged in such a small binocular. Perfect for travel, or just to grab and go anywhere. Worth every penny.

Ultravid 10X25.the best binocular is the one you can always carry with you! - 03/25/2009

by Marco from New Jersey

This small and light "jewel" is the best binocular for both the avid observer and the occasional user. The clarity of view during daylight hours is as good as the larger Leicas (I own a duovid 10-15X50) with the advantage of being truly light and small in size. With one just one hand it can be held and focus without effort and, with some patience, adjusted to interpupillary distance which is, in all small binoculars, a bit hard getting use to do especially with spectacles.
