Small and light enough to be carried on every trip, Leica Noctivid 8×42 offers an outstanding grip and sits comfortably in the palm of the hand. Engineered with 12 glass lens elements, the Leica Noctivid 8×42 ensures first-class optical excellence even in the most challenging situations. Precision is unmatched, thanks to a newly-designed focusing wheel, which allows pin-sharp focusing on even the tiniest of details – bringing distant objects into view instantaneously. Manufactured with high-performance SCHOTT HT™ (High Transmission) glass, the binoculars deliver incredibly natural color rendition, thanks to a special new high-temperature ‘plasma deposition process’. The premium-quality lens coating guarantees perfectly balanced light transmission throughout the entire wavelength range of visible light. This results in a breathtakingly bright and color-neutral viewing image.

Leica binoculars are made with a dual-hinge / open-bridge that provides added gripping surface area while reducing the overall weight without sacrificing strength or stability. The binoculars’ chassis is made of a very lightweight yet strong magnesium alloy. When it is combined with the bridge configuration, it further reduces the weight while shifting the center of gravity to the natural hand position, providing improved handling experience with greatly reduced fatigue, allowing you to hold the binoculars for extended periods of time.

To withstand the rigors of extensive outdoor use, Leica has covered all of the metal surfaces with a proprietary varnish coating to resist corrosion and wear and the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be fog proof, waterproof, and submersible. They also have a non-slip rubber armoring that gives the binoculars a comfortable feel, and the highly durable patented special varnish provides additional protection for the metal surfaces of the robust magnesium housing.
