The APO-Televid 77 and Televid 77 eyepieces are the exact same. But do these old eyepieces fit the new 82 and 65 Televid scopes? I don't think so.

I'm not sure they can demand a sales receipt. Surely the warranty card should be more than adequate?

I've not seen an underside picture. Can anyone confirm if the Noctivid have thumb depressions or thumb horns?

I understand that the UK is Leica's biggest market for binoculars, mainly to the birding sector. That's why they chose to release the Noctivid at the Birdfair.

I like the look of that binocular,...

That may be useful for a riflescope but not so much for binoculars. Extraneous light which adversely affects the view is dealt with very effectively by eyecups; it's not just about placing the eyes...

The Swaro 8x32 is very nice - Leica could easily produce these and I think they would sell well.

Higher QC would surely result in price increases.

Do birders actually want heavy, stabilised bins?...

An 8x32 Noctivid would be very sweet. It will probably follow the initial release of the 42mm models. Even sweeter but unlikely would be a Leica Noctivid 7x32. I would hope that there would be a 7x42...

Yes I agree. It's a cool name.

Presumably they have the AquaDura coating.

Question Leica UK Warranty Question

Is the warranty transferable to a new owner if you sell your binocular privately, assuming it was a genuine UK import?

Hi Kimmo,

I just looked again, and the flecks are very small and there are not a great number of them.

Do you think the rotating plastic eyecup sleeve discrepancy issue is irrelevant?

Thank you Gijs. Would a hammer do the job just as well?

I take your point though - not to obsess about unimportant things.

Only two quibbles. No objective covers - does anyone know of any solutions? And the belt loop on the pouch is a bit of a joke.

Very good, thanks. I thought perhaps they were made in Portugal. Of course, that wouldn't be a problem since most of the work on the Ultravids are carried out there, with final assembly in Germany. I...

This makes no sense! If it's a 30% OR a 50% difference then it works both ways. It can't be one value up and the other down when comparing the 2 models.
