    Leica Ultravid HD 10x32 - user opinions

    The color rendition of the Ultravids is exceptional. I think new the HD plus incorporate the Schott HT glass and new coatings. Still, the standard Ultravids were the Leica premium offering precursor to the Noctivids - so performance is top tier.

    Comparative review - Kowa 8x33 Genesis vs Swarovski 10x42 NL Pure

    Excellent analysis. I owned the 10x42 Noctivid and sold them to buy the 10x42 NL Pure. To me, the FOV and ergonomics of the NL Pures were the main selling points. Optically, both are amazing with the Noctivid being more richer (vivid) in color - so incredible to look through. But, I agree...

    Noctivid 10x42 Olive Green Edition

    Two important points 1) While I am sure the quality in Portugal is on par with Germany, you are paying German Made prices. In other words, Leica is saving money producing in Portugal (or why move) but not passing savings to customers. 2) All of Leica Noctivid marketing collateral (web site)...
