Leica Ultravid 8×50 HD-Plus binoculars review


The Leica Ultravid 8×50 HD-Plus (stated on the label as 8×50 HD) is a wide-field, large objective binocular perfect for spotting subjects during the day or in low light levels such as twilight. The binoculars also come in 8/10×32, 7/8/10×42, and 10/12×50 variants, providing a huge range of magnification and objective lens diameter options to choose from.

Leica Ultravid 8×50 HD-Plus specs:

Design: Roof prism

Magnification: 8x (10 and 12x also available)

Objective lens aperture: 50mm

Angle of view:  6.6 degrees (115 m / 1000 m)

Weight:  2.2 lbs (1,010 g)

The Ultravid 8x50s are hefty binoculars, weighing as much as a bag of sugar and standing taller and wider than one as well. But the neat form factor, as is synonymous with Leica design, keeps them feeling svelte in the hand.
