Leica 8x20 Compact Binocular - Ostrich Leather Edition
- They are brighter, sharper, more compact, more functional and robust than previous binoculars of this lens size.
There is no question that these compacts are true Ultravid-class. Almost all the Ultravid-elements that the developers could miniaturise found there way into these "mini-binoculars" which fit comfortably into almost any pocket.
The use of asphericial lenses offers the observer a sharp image right to the edge whithout colour fringing and because of the short close-up distance these little Ultravids bring close up things even closer.
The Ostrich Leather Edition Ultravid comes in a chestnut-brown, natural calfskin with ostrich-pattern embossing. This eye-catching leather design gives the binoculars a classic elegance and guarantees a long life.
The new edition also includes a color-coordinated leather case with a carrying strap. It will be offered in a limited worldwide edition of only 750 and will be available from Leica dealers.
