Leica’s 10×42 Noctivid Binocular represents the perfect combination of form and function in a single optic. It is designed with an array of complementary technologies to produce bright and clear color-neutral images, while fitting comfortably in the hand for long, fatigue-free glassing sessions.

The Noctivid’s performance starts with the use of SCHOTT High Transmission glass with a 12-element lens configuration and their HighLux-System anti-reflection multi-coatings, followed by phase-corrected compact roof prisms. These features produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire visible spectrum. Internal baffles limit scattered light in the optical tubes, which can affect clarity and contrast, while an innovative lens design and internal field flatteners ensure edge-to-edge clarity across the entire wide-angle field of view. The wide viewing angle and relatively high 10x magnification allow you to take in sweeping views while also giving you the ability to make detailed observations of distant objects. The wide viewing angle also helps to mitigate the common occurrence of disorientation that often accompanies high magnifications when using the optic on rolling seas or airborne platforms.

The Noctivid is made with a dual-hinge/open-bridge that provides added gripping surface area while reducing the overall weight without sacrificing strength or stability. Its chassis is made of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy that, when combined with the bridge configuration, further reduces the weight while shifting the center of gravity to the natural hand position, which translates to an improved handling experience with greatly reduced fatigue, allowing you to hold the binocular for extended periods of time. To withstand the rigors of extensive outdoor use, all of the metal surfaces are treated with a proprietary varnish coating to resist corrosion and wear and the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be fogproof, waterproof, and submersible.

These binoculars will blow your mind…  Seriously.  Prior to the introduction of the Swarovski NL Pure, these were the best binoculars on the planet – and for some they still might be.  They’re incredibly bright and produce gorgeous color saturation that is much warmer than most Leica binoculars of the past.  Edge to edge clarity and contrast is stunning.  The depth of focus is excellent which makes spotting game in thick cover much easier.  This is the more expensive olive green armored model and they’re in excellent overall condition.  The glass is flawless.  If you want these, hurry before Dan sees that I’m selling them this cheap because these are his favorites!  If you can’t swing the NL’s, I’d jump on these like a spider monkey dipped in maple syrup.

Optical Performance
High 10x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects
42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability for enhanced low-light performance such as at dawn and dusk or when peering into dense brush
Compact roof prism optical path helps to maintain a compact form factor for easier handling
SCHOTT HT (High Transmission) glass and 12 lens elements ensure accurate color rendition with limited distortion
Multi-layer high-temperature plasma anti-reflection lens coating deposition process ensures balanced light transmission across the entire visible spectrum
P40 phase-correcting prism coatings increase light transmission while improving contrast and clarity
HighLux-System (HLS) maximizes light throughput to improve color rendition and contrast
Internal baffle system reduces scattered light, which can interfere with contrast, color, and clarity
Hydrophobic AquaDura coatings on external optical surfaces allow dirt, dust, and fingerprints to be removed easily
Lens design and integrated field flatteners reduce spherical aberration and distortion across the entire field of view for edge-to-edge sharpness
Wide 64° apparent angle of view minimizes the appearance of the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics, while presenting a spacious and immersive observational experience
337′ field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling
Open-bridge/Dual-hinge configuration provides additional gripping surface area for better handling
Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, or while wearing gloves
56-74mm adjustable interpupillary distance allows easy use for a wide variety of people
±4 right-eye dioptric correction range enables users to compensate for individual optical prescriptions for tack-sharp images
Twist-out 4-position click-stop eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
Long 19mm eye relief ensures comfortable use with reduced eye strain, especially during long glassing sessions
4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils when they open and dilate in low-light to ensure the entire scene stays in view without vignetting
