Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD-Plus Binoculars - Safari Special Edition. Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar) presents the ‘Edition Safari’ 2017 – an annual edition limited to 100 examples of each of four different models from the Leica Ultravid HD-PLUS family. Each pair of binoculars of the edition comes complete with an exclusive case created in collaboration with French artisan workshop ‘Aneas’. The body ring of each pair of binoculars is also engraved with 2017 to denote the year of the edition.
The exclusive dark green trim applied to the binoculars harmonises perfectly with the light brown leather of the handcrafted carrying strap by ‘Aneas’. The Aneas case supplied as a part of each example of the ‘Edition Safari’ 2017 is handmade from finest-quality canvas with features in light brown leather and an additional leather carrying strap. The French artisan workshop, Aneas, is renowned for its use of only the finest leathers and the elaborate finishing of its products.
‘The new Leica Ultravid HD-PLUS ‘Edition Safari’ 2017 unites exceptional quality, finest materials and exclusive leather, the excellence of HD-PLUS optics and the lightweight aluminium construction of the Ultravid models. The combination of perfect technology and finest materials makes the ‘Edition Safari’ an exclusive and simultaneously practical companion’, says Nanette Roland, Product Manager Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar).
Leica Ultravid 8x42 HD-Plus Binoculars. The 42 HD-PLUS models are almost as compact as the 32 mm models, allowing comfortable and ergonomic handling and a steady grip. Yet they provide light gathering capabilities close to the 50 mm model and thanks to new coating methods and special HT Glass from Schott they guarantee improved light transmission and therefore brighter images and an even wider spectrum of contrast.
Experience nature in razor-sharp details
The Leica Ultravid HD series incorporates top-performing lenses that keep stray light at a minimum. This guarantees superb colour and contrast, a bright and clear view and sharpest detail resolution.

Great service from Uttings. Bought in UK and they were helpful allowing me to pay with my US bank account via wire. Bought these really as a bit of an investment and haven't tried much but they are 70 grams lighter than suggested. Way lighter than my EL 8.5s and my Zeiss Victory 8x. And look pin sharp. Thanks.
