That is a Dutch twist, and you can never lose them in the field.

That looks nice, it looks like a go this year if it actually looks like that. My Ultravid Safari, the green does not look like the Leica commercial images.

Looks like a very nice and discrete green, if there were a design contest for binoculars, the Nocitivids would win IMO.

Oh so true. They are a fine looking binocular to look at! Still need to make time to look through them.

Its completely irrational and silly to say this...but the green makes me want to buy more than the black. But I can see how traditionalist for Leica would think otherwise.

I think the green colour in the photo above looks rather better than the previous olive green Leicas that Ive seen. It's extremely attractive IMO, but I do wonder what it actually looks like in real life.

I'm totally seduced. If Leica came out with an olive 8x50/8x56 Noctivid I'd jump right in bed with a pair.

I like that green color! It might fool other birder's into thinking you were carrying a Swarovski.

I like it (if that is the actual color). Other Leica green, not so much so.

Only if they were wearing strong sunglasses or suffered from some kind of unnatural colour shift. That green is nothing like Swaro Green.

Dennis you are suffering from strain and anxiety waiting for UPS to deliver your SLCs. Time to lie down in a cool dark room.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of them when they arrive.

Oh my, that is one nice-looking binocular. Not sure my computer screen captures the color just right, but if it does...YUM!! Yeah, that's nothing like Swaro green.

And the overall design is just pure Leica class! Gotta take a look through these.

The consensus seems to be that if you get olive green colour, then looking at them would be sufficient!

Henry, I'm awaiting your review of the Swarovski SLC 8x56.

You don't have to wait for that one.

Good heavens - the Leica press team got really carried away on that release... This particularly caught my eye;
"Construction and optics have been inspired by the best observers from the animal kingdom."

Does this mean that the optics are modelled on those found in the eyes of a Golden Eagle or a Cheetah, or what?
