Great glass that feels good in the hand. - 03/23/2016

by COS from Cape May, NJ

I purchased these because the thumb swells in the armor coating of the regular Ultravids is very uncomfortable for me. When I grab my binoculars my thumbs end up on top of the thumb indents on the regular Ultravids. The glass in these is excellent and I may have an exceptional pair but they stand up very nicely against the Ultravid HD's and the Ultravid HD Plus's as well as other premium optics. I think they have an extraordinary depth of field and you can follow a warbler moving around in dense foliage without having to touch the focus wheel. I just sent them back to Leica for cleaning and inspection and they replaced the leather even though the original still looked pretty good. They now look brand new. Many people have commented on the RETRO look and I still often use them even though I have a number other high end binoculars to choose from.

The Best - 05/11/2009

by Tom from Yukon, Canada

Highly recommended; worth every cent. I have used extensively binoculars from top manufacturers in challenging conditions, but these Ultravids are the best binoculars I have ever used. I have had mine for 2 years, and have used them from steamy tropical rainforests to the sub-arctic taiga in mid-winter,and always they perform perfectly. Of course the optics are superb, but I also love the way the feel in the hand. They also are very comfortable to carry on extended outings. Definetly one of the finest pieces of outdoor equipment I own.
