The Leica Duovid 8 + 12 x 42

The choice has been made easy : As the first binocular of the new generation, the LEICA DUOVID 8 + 12 x 42 with its two magnification settings offers independence and that great feeling of being well equipped for any situation.

__ Instead of just a single magnification as found on conventional binoculars, the Duovid features both a 8-power magnification that is so good at twilight as well as a 12-power magnification that provides rich details. And that with outstanding optical performance throughout.

__ The change in magnification is accomplished separately for each tube by turning two rings. The magnification for the diopter adjustment is automatically conformed through a curved lens. (ADC™)
