    New Leica Ultravid HD Plus 12x50 - compared with Swarovski EL 12x50 and Zeiss 10x54 HT

    Self-evidently the focuser issues are a hit-and-miss seemingly on every Alpha brand. I've had a very nice 2007 era EL focuser and one not so great. Leica seems a bit more consistent, but a sample size of 1 or 3 means absolutely nothing. The fact I got what I got does not extrapolate to the rest...

    I get kind of a blackout when I press the eyecups into my face as a I have a tendency to do. I didn't measure the ER just saying it's fine and that the eyecups do not fit the ER distance correctly. It needs about 2 more clicks or about 2-3mm of height. I tried using eyeglasses with it and it's...

    New Leica Ultravid HD Plus 12x50 - compared with Swarovski EL 12x50 and Zeiss 10x54 HT

    I rejoined the Leica club after a long departure. These are the initial impressions of the 12x50 Ultravid HD Plus versus Swaro 12x50 (latest gen) and Zeiss HT 10x54. The picture quality, out of the 3 goes to Leica. As good as Swaro EL is, Leica is at least equal to it and maybe exceeds it. I...
