Great bino with a couple small issues
DEHusker from Ft. Collins, CO
Just finished putting these up against just about every available competitor in the "elite 8x32/8x33" class...and I mean Kowas, Swaros, Minox, Vortex Vipers, Zeiss, and many others. This was my 2nd pick just under the Swaros. Glass cannot be beat. Probably even a bit better than the Swaros as far as the ease of image and color rendition along with the lucidity of the view. Just sublime. Also, extremely stout and will survive a Zombie attack, I'm sure. Couple issues I had and which pushed them into 2nd place were the following: First, these are so small that I'm wondering if there is such a thing as "too compact." What I mean is that they are almost too hard to hold for anyone with medium or larger hands. Some may view this as a bonus but I felt them to be a bit too difficult to freely hold and move with. Strange, but true for me. They ARE very light. Fitting them into an aftermarket bino pouch that you can wear on your chest will be difficult as they are so small that they won't fit right in anything, I suspect. Eye relief is only so so, and I don't even use eye glasses. Also, only 2 stops of the eye cups weren't enough adjustment for me...a minor detail but at this price range I want something to be practically perfect in every way. Final thing, and this is HUGE to me anyway, was the warranty and customer service aspect. Leica is known to have horrendous customer service (in USA only, BTW). The actual warranty is good...3 years no fault followed by lifetime for defects. However, it is NOT transferable. If you ever want to sell these, it's a huge drawback and will significantly devalue your purchase. If Leica had top-notch service I still might have gone with these. However, I could not cough up the dough for these with the non-transferable warranty. If they fixed that, they'd sell more units, even with their customer service issues. I have and have had several Leica optics including binos and scopes and all are amazing. I think Leica has the best glass, bar none. Just such an amazing view. However, I wanted perfect and these were just not up to snuff in that way. I kept the Swaro SV and am happy as a clam. Expensive, yes, but I'll get most of my money back if I ever decide to sell them. Thanks for AMAZING customer service, EO!!
Excellent Customer Service , Geat Product

I purchased the Leica 8x32 HD binoculars for birding. I wanted something lighter for my birding walks, and I knew the weight of the 10x42s was more than I wanted hanging around my neck for long spells. I knew I wanted the Leica optics I'd been enjoying from always "borrowing " my husband's Leica bins. I ordered my new bins from Eagle Optics, having heard about them through birding magazines and podcasts. I ordered online late on a Friday night, and the bins arrived the following Tuesday. They were exactly what I wanted: lighter and more compact than the 10x42s, great clarity and color, generous field of view, and the new HD model provided plenty of light gathering power for shady underbrush views of shy birds. But then after a few days I noticed a spot in my field of view that did not go away after cleaning the lenses. I called Eagle Optics' customer service department, and they had a new pair of bins delivered to me the next day. They included a return postage label for the defective bins, and I am a very happy customer. The new bins are perfect, and I couldn't be more impressed with Eagle Optics and their customer service quality. Thanks!!!
Great product great service

I absolutely love these binoculars and have used them for several years. They are very durable, compact and light weight so that I can wear them all day in the field and not get a neck ache. The focusing mechanisms are smooth and fluid and optics very clear in all light conditions.
Phil S. from Gurnee IL
I have "face tested" many binoculars and found these to fit my face just right. incredibly bright and crisp optics and much lighter than my very good Vortex binoculars. I enjoy using them when I can snatch them away from my avid birder son!
Shelley from Folsom, CA
I highly recommend the Leica binoculars. Great optics!

I have owned many binoculars in the past. The Leica 8x32 hd binoculars are the best of the best. The Swarovski's are a very close second. I've used the Swarovski 8x32 this year on a brown bear hunt before I purchaced the Leica's. For me size and weight put the Leica's ahead of the Swarovski's EL's. Once you own a pair of Leica's you will never buy anything else.

I just inherited a used pair of the prior model of these, the 8x32 BR. They are a great alternative to traveling with my bulkier 8.5x44 porros. Everything is just perfect. These are balanced in the hand so well, they feel like you're holding a much lighter binocular. At only a 32 mm objective, these are much smaller than the 44 mm I've been using for years. I must say though that the clarity and light transmission of the glass more than make up for it. From 200 feet away, every detail of a mockingbird is in perfect focus. Less weight and a clearer image make me wonder if there is a need for the 40+ mm binocs anymore.
The only con I can think of is that the eyecups do not extend far out enough for me. I might just have deep eye sockets, but I cannot fully rest them against my face without losing some of the image. Not a problem for me though because I rarely bird like that anyway, preferring to wear sunglasses or just having the eyecups down to get a fuller image.
I'm still itching for my first extended vacation using these, but I can already tell that even when I go birding locally my bulkier pair of Swifts are going to have serious competition.
