Leica Noctivid 8x42 Binoculars. More than a century of experience in the development of long-range viewing instruments, microscopes and cameras has led to a new family of Leica premium binoculars: the Noctivid binoculars. They feature compact dimensions as well as stylish and elegant design and are at the same time incredibly robust and resilient.
Thanks to their large exit pupil and maximum contrasts, the Leica Noctivid 8x42 models impress by their bright and brilliant image well into dusk. Wide fields of view and perfect ergonomics ensure a steady image. The wide field of view also allows a perfect overview at short distances and a deep insight at greater distances. Complex and innovative baffle systems guarantee minimum stray light and maximum contrast. A non-slip rubber armouring 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.
High contrast, brilliant and pin-sharp
The optical values of the Noctivid combine the highlights of the most proven and state-of-the-art technologies. Thanks to the Schott HT™ high transmission glass for the binocular prisms already utilized in the Ultravid HD-Plus optics, the Noctivid also features maximum transmission and astoundingly natural colours.
Different technologies and innovative concepts
The latest optical calculations in sophisticated combination with state-of-the-art baffles and premium glass materials ensure image plasticity almost like in 3-D. Thanks to superior contrasts and uncompromisingly large depth of field, fast focussing, wide eye relief and generous eyepieces, you will experience a new way of viewing.
Suitable for any situation
These binoculars set new standards in their design. The slim binoculars can be held comfortably with one hand. Thanks to their short overall length, the weight is ideally balanced and rests mostly in the palm of the hand for fatigue-free viewing.

Review by Ans
New open-bridge design, but not well thought out. The strap lugs need to be a bit nearer the top of the barrels - their current position makes them rub on your hands. The barrels are not an ideal shape - not possible to wrap your fingers round both barrels with both hands - the gap between the barrels is too narrow. Not a very wide field of view either. I've sent mine back to Uttings for a refund, and will stick to my Zeiss Victory SF, which are much better in every aspect in my opinion.
