Leica Geovid 8x56 HD-R (Type 502) Rangefinder Binoculars. With the new Leica Geovid 8 × 56 HD-B and 8 × 56 HD-R (Typ 500) binoculars, Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, has once again raised the bar with its successful Geovid series. These new top-of-the-range models boast outstanding lens speed thanks to a lens diameter of 56 mm and enhanced transmission of around 90%. Coupled with the HD lens design and optimised Leica aperture system, the patented Perger-Porro prisms offer outstanding suppression of stray light and maximum contrast.
‘We developed the new Leica Geovid 8 × 56 HD-B and 8 × 56 HD-R (Typ 500) models with hunters, for hunters,’ explains Marcus Zeidler, head of product management at Leica Sport Optics. ‘Our aim was always to produce binoculars that boast maximum lens speed and a rangefinder while offering our discerning customers everything they expect from a high-seat scope. Despite their uncompromising lens technology, both models are extremely compact, offering an ergonomically optimised design for maximum viewing comfort as well as a flawless finish – in other words, pure Leica product DNA.’
The binoculars are able to measure linear distances of up to 1825 metres (2000 yards) in the blink of an eye (max. 0.3 s).
The die-cast magnesium chassis is extremely lightweight and enclosed in impact-absorbing rubber armouring to protect the binoculars against damage. The armouring, balanced distribution of weight and ergonomic form all provide outstanding grip and make it possible to use the binoculars for long periods of time without getting tired.
The Leica AquaDura® coating on the exposed glass surfaces means dirt and water on the lenses just roll away, improving viewing performance, particularly in rainy weather. The binoculars thus always provide optimum performance, even in adverse weather conditions and extremely humid environments. A further advantage of this special coating is that the lenses can now be cleaned even more quickly and easily.
